Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
An attractive and spacious mews style home, part of an impressive courtyard development of former Victorian buildings, once known as the renowned Stockbridge Race Course Racing Stables, situated in a rural setting to the west of Stockbridge
6 Chattis Hill Stables is part of a conversion of a brick under tile Victorian outbuilding, originally part of the stable block and associated buildings forming part of the historic Stockbridge Race Course Racing Stables (1775-1898) which was converted into eleven dwellings in 1989 creating an exclusive development of individual period properties. The Race Course was closed in 1898 due to part of the land being inherited by Marianne Vaundry who strongly disapproved of gambling and refused to renew the lease. The accommodation comprises a reception hall and cloakroom, living room with open fireplace, dining room and kitchen, all with the benefit of elegant high ceilings. To the first floor there is a principal bedroom with en suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside the property fronts onto a large landscaped communal courtyard area whilst the main private garden extends to the rear. The property has the additional benefit of two good size garage/workshops, further communal garden areas including two tennis courts, and a raised mound from where open views are enjoyed over the surrounding countryside.
Chattis Hill Stables occupies a pleasant location approximately one and a half miles west of Stockbridge, surrounded by farmland. Stockbridge offers a variety of shops including a delicatessen, Post Office, hotel, public houses, wine bar, restaurant, churches, doctors’ surgery, regular bus services and primary and secondary schools. The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester and the abbey town of Romsey are all within a twenty minute drive, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country. There are also mainline railway stations in Winchester and Andover (both about fifteen minutes’ drive away) as well as Grateley (about ten minutes’ drive) with fast trains to Waterloo.
