Occupying a pleasant setting at the heart of the sought-after village of Easton, this beautifully refurbished family home offers the perfect compromise between modern style and country living. In recent years the vendor has embarked on an extensive renovation, including an extension and refurbishment, creating a bright and spacious home totalling 2140 sq ft with attractive landscaped gardens. The hub of the house is the sociable kitchen/breakfast room with generous space for a dining table in front of a set of bi-fold doors which open to the garden, creating a lovely open feel and allowing a larger entertaining space during good weather. Adjacent is a separate utility room and cloakroom. The ground floor accommodation also includes a sitting room and further reception room which could be used as a formal dining room or family room. A study with its own external access completes the downstairs, creating the ideal space for homeworkers. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom and an additional double bedroom with en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a shower room.
Easton is a charming village situated approximately 4 miles northeast of Winchester, within the boundary of the South Downs National Park. The river Itchen flows to the north of the village, offering picturesque walks and excellent fly fishing, whose clear waters are a haven for wild brown trout. Easton has a village hall, recreation ground, garage and two pubs. Neighbouring village Itchen Abbas has a primary school, with a wide choice of educational establishments available locally including Peter Symonds College, Winchester College, St Swithun’s School and Twyford. The cathedral city of Winchester provides a more comprehensive range of amenities including the mainline railway station (4.1 miles) with services to London Waterloo (about one hour). Junction 9 of the M3 provides road access to London (about 70 miles), the south coast and M27.
The front of the property has been landscaped to include a generous gravel driveway with space for several cars, surrounded by wide flowerbeds stocked with a variety of colourful shrubs and bedding plants providing interest during the spring and summer months. Additional parking is available within a single attached garage, with access along the side of the house leading to the rear garden. With its good-size level lawn and pretty borders, the garden is equally attractive and offers plenty of space to relax. Adjoining the rear of the house there is a terrace leading to a shed and path leading down to the rear boundary, where there is a fenced area of garden well suited as a play area for children and pets alike.
