This superb building, built from new by the current vendors 9 years ago, stands separately from the main house providing a strong degree of privacy while remaining close enough to provide excellent additional accommodation. The accommodation includes a sitting room with kitchenette, double bedroom and well appointed bathroom. There is a separate heating system for this building. Potential for rental income, or use as a granny annexe or extensive home office.
The property is situated in the popular village of Boscombe which is surrounded by rolling countryside perfect for rural pursuits such as walking, riding and cycling. There is a public house and church whilst in the neighbouring village of Porton, about a mile away, there is a primary school, newsagent, Post Office/Store for everyday needs. Newton Toney which is nearby also offers a primary school and award winning pub, The Malet Arms. The property is within the catchment area for both of the excellent Salisbury Grammar schools and the school bus stop is nearby. The A303 is easily accessible, allowing convenient access to Andover, Basingstoke, London and the West Country; and there are main line railway stations in the nearby village of Grateley (less than a ten minute drive away) and Salisbury (7 miles away) both providing regular services to London Waterloo (76 minutes and 86 minutes respectively) and the West Country. There is also super fast Fibre Optic broadband available in the village.
The gardens and grounds of the house are a particular feature amounting to approximately three quarters of an acre with mature trees and hedged boundaries affording a high degree of privacy and a well stocked fish pond.
The home is approached by a shingled driveway that provides ample off road parking and access to the double garage. The large garage itself is attached to the annexe and has two entrance ways. There is ample space for 3 vehicles with light, power, heating, water and loft storage.
The gardens themselves are split into two main areas. The upper formal garden is laid to lawn interspersed with flower beds, mature shrubs and specimen trees. The ideal entertaining area adjacent to the rear of the cottage. The lower garden is also laid to lawn with a vegetable patch and several storage sheds.
To the rear of the gardens is a gateway that could provide separate access to the annexe, with the hedge row providing a natural divide to create a garden for the annexe also.
Potential subject to planning permission to build a further property.
