Approached via a gravel drive and set back from the road stands this stunning and characterful Grade II listed village house, with excellent proportions featuring high ceilings and light, spacious rooms both upstairs and downstairs. This wonderful home has been sympathetically modernised and updated, whilst retaining important period features such as exposed timber beams, an inglenook fireplace and sash windows. The ground floor features a stunning duck egg blue handmade shaker style fitted kitchen with an Aga and contrasting kitchen island with breakfast bar which leads through to a gorgeous dining room complete with ornate caste iron fireplace. Two separate French windows lead out to a tiled rear courtyard which has an overhead grapevine and access to an unconverted outbuilding ready for modernising and possible use as a home office. A substantial and well-appointed boot room/utility also has access to the gardens. A large sitting room is situated off a spacious central hall and features a stunning inglenook fireplace with inset wood burning stove. Also off the hall is a garden room with views out over the main gardens. The impressive and well-proportioned dual aspect drawing room features high ceilings and large sash windows and is ideal for entertaining.
The upstairs is spacious and light with high ceilings, there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom, a double bedroom with stylish en suite bathroom and a large master bedroom with an en suite shower room.
In all, the accommodation is inviting and appealing with a wonderful flow and connecting spaces that all help bring it together.
Upavon is an unspoilt and sought after village in the heart of the Pewsey Vale and sits within a conservation area. The village provides good local amenities including a shop and Post Office, public houses, a primary school, a doctor’s surgery and a golf course. The small market town of Pewsey is about 4 miles to the north providing a wider range of shops and amenities together with a railway station with services to London Paddington (about 65 minutes). The old market town of Marlborough (about 10 miles), the city of Salisbury (about 16 miles) and the commercial centre of Andover (about 15 miles) are within easy striking distance. The M4 motorway lies to the north with the A303 (M3) to the south.
The property is approached via an open gravel drive which continues down past the side of the house to rear gates leading to the main gardens. The private and open gardens are a particular feature and are laid mainly to lawn with an east facing terrace bordered by lavender plants, a number of mature trees, bushes, shrubs and well stocked flower beds. The gardens are accessed off the kitchen / dining room. An attractive feature wall abounds the bottom of the garden and has a pedestrian door leading to playing fields and open views beyond.
