EVANS & PARTRIDGE are fortunate in having offices within the beautiful Test Valley, with its attractive villages and hamlets, often divided by a crystal clear chalk stream or winterbourne flowing on its way to join the River Test. This famous river, said by some to be the centre of the best known trout fishing in the world, passes through the popular town of Stockbridge, the base of the very select Houghton Fishing Club, which owns a considerable stretch of fishing rights. Evans & Partridge have a picturesque double bow fronted office on the High Street, as well as a prominent office in Andover with a large window display.
As a firm we offer properties for sale from the southern edge of Newbury to the edge of the Abbey town of Romsey, towards the Cathedral cities of Winchester to the east and Salisbury to the west, and beyond. One of the many strengths of the area is the excellent communications, with mainline rail services to London (Waterloo) in about an hour from Andover, with other stations in Grateley, Whitchurch and Winchester. Trains from Newbury reach Paddington in about an hour. The A303 from the West Country to London (via the M3 motorway) can be accessed just to the south of Andover, while to the east of the town, the A34 road to Oxford also joins the M4 to the north of Newbury.
Those who work in Winchester, Salisbury, Newbury or Basingstoke can appreciate living in the Test Valley and enjoy an easy daily commute through beautiful countryside. There is an excellent selection of schooling in the area, ranging from highly regarded primary schools in the villages to reputable secondary schools and sixth form colleges in the towns as well as good choice of private schools.
With the area’s stunning countryside, good communications and picturesque villages with their varied accommodation and character, it is only to be expected that there is a keen demand for houses in the area within such easy reach of London.
