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.
The firm offers properties for sale from the southern edge of Newbury to the edge of the town of Romsey, east towards the city of Winchester and west to Salisbury 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 Basingstoke, Newbury, Reading or Winchester can easily justify living in the Test Valley and enjoy an easy daily commute through beautiful countryside. Schooling offers generous choices, with many well thought of primary schools in the villages, up to sixth form colleges and respected private schools.
With the area's superb countryside, good communications and attractive villages with their varied accomodation and character, it is only to be expected that there is a keen market for houses in this area within such easy reach of London and enjoying virtually full employment.
