Conveniently set in a picturesque, sought-after village, this charming and well-presented family home offers the best of both worlds: nearby amenities and a short distance to open countryside. Occupying a good size plot, the property affords generous proportions inside and out. Internally the house is decorated in a traditional style with a number of notable features such as wooden floors and a handsome fireplace.
Originally serving as the village store, the property has been added to over the years with various extensions to increase the accommodation to 2694 sq ft. On the ground floor, the layout comprises an entrance hall leading to a sitting room, dining room and kitchen, with a shower room, utility room, study and snug located in the rear extension. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with dressing room, a guest suite with en suite wc, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The pretty village of Upper Clatford is situated on the River Anton and has a number of amenities, including village hall, church, tennis club, pub and farm shop. The popular Dobbies garden centre lies to the north of the village, while neighbouring Goodworth Clatford has a Post Office, primary school, two pubs and 18-hole golf course. A wider choice of shopping can be found in Andover including Waitrose supermarket. In addition there is a mainline train station with services to London Waterloo in around an hour. Locally there are renowned riverside walks and the famous Longstock Water Gardens (owned by the John Lewis Partnership) offering a farm shop and tea rooms. The A303 is very convenient for access to London and the West Country. The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are within easy reach.
The cottage is situated in the heart of Upper Clatford village, surrounded by historic properties and just moments from the village pub. The property is approached over a hardstanding driveway with an attached garage to one side, together offering parking for several vehicles. Relatively private, the rear garden is a highlight of the property, with a good-size lawn, landscaped flowerbeds stocked with a mature and varied selection of plants and a number of seating areas from which to take in the southwest aspect. There is also side access.
