A substantial and imposing five bedroom detached period home offering just under 3,000 sq. ft. of accommodation with generous gardens, set within the heart of this extremely sought after Hampshire village.
Hazelhurst House dates back to the 1800’s and has been beautifully cared for over the years with the addition of later extensions making it the substantial home you find today. The light and spacious accommodation is thoughtfully arranged and boasts many character features such as large sash windows, fireplaces and high ceilings.
The ground floor comprises a large welcoming entrance hall with a staircase to the first floor and giving access through to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is well-appointed with ample solid oak fronted wall and base units, twin Belfast style ceramic sinks and Bosch double oven and grill as well as plumbing for a dishwasher and space for a free standing fridge/freezer. To the rear of the kitchen is a cloakroom. Beyond, in the breakfast room, there is space for a dining table and chairs with French doors leading out to the garden. A formal dining room and further reception room, with another staircase to the first floor, provide access to the lovely glass garden room, a haven for soaking up the natural sunlight and an ideal additional entertaining space. The triple aspect drawing room is a superb size and has a feature open fireplace with Jetmaster fire and stone mantelpiece. Double doors open onto the rear terrace and garden beyond. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a utility room and separate study, which was once an additional garage and can be converted back if you so wish.
On the first floor are five bedrooms and a large galleried landing. The master bedroom has built-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom whilst the remaining bedrooms are serviced by two further family bathrooms. The third bedroom also has built-in wardrobes and a dressing room.
We strongly recommend a viewing to appreciate both the properties location and the size and layout of the accommodation.
Thruxton is a delightful village with a real sense of community and has a church, village hall, two public houses, a garden centre, post office, restaurant, delicatessen and butchers. There are mainline railway stations in Grateley (approx. 3 miles) and Andover (approx. 4 miles) with fast services to London (Waterloo) in just over one hour. Andover also provides a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities. The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country and the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within easy commuting distance. There are a number of independent and state schools in the area including nearby Farleigh, Salisbury Cathedral School, Chafyn Grove, Godolphin, Bishop Wordsworths and South Wilts Grammar schools to name but a few. Schools in Winchester, Newbury and Marlborough are all accessible.
The property is set just off of the village road with a large gravel driveway providing off road parking for numerous vehicles. There is an integral garage with up and over door and power and light. The front garden, in part, is laid to lawn with mature shrubs, hedging and fencing providing a degree of privacy as well as a variety of specimen trees such as Wellingtonia, Silver Birch and Magnolia.
The established gardens are found to the rear and are a wonderful size. Adjacent to the kitchen and drawing room is a lovely paved area with a charming pergola, the ideal setting for al-fresco entertaining whilst enjoying views across the gardens beyond. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with colourful flora, ornamental trees and herbaceous borders, the perfect canvass for any keen gardener. The Pill Hill Brook runs on the west and northern boundaries, a lovely feature of the garden. There are two garden sheds as well as a compost area.
