Property Details


A surprisingly spacious detached chalet style house built during the late 1960s, largely extended over the years and constructed of mainly brick elevations beneath a tiled roof.  The well-presented light and airy accommodation comprises an enclosed porch, entrance hall, sitting room with fireplace that opens into a garden area with vaulted ceiling, large dining hall with high profile ceiling and galleried landing above, spacious kitchen/breakfast room, also with garden area with lantern roof and folding doors onto the terrace and garden.  Off the kitchen there is a useful covered walk-way leading to a laundry, WC and wood store.  Additionally on the ground floor there is a double bedroom and large bathroom. To the first floor there are two further double bedrooms, a study/single bedroom and a shower room.  Outside the property has an attractive frontage and driveway leading to a garage and separate car port.  The main garden which extends to the rear of the property, has been attractively landscaped and is secluded and peaceful.  There is also a summerhouse, workshop and direct access at the rear boundary onto a footpath.


The property is situated in Houghton with delightful walks nearby traversing the River Test and on to the renowned Test Way.  There is also an excellent public house/restaurant (The Boot) with its barbecue area and gardens running down to the river Test and All Saints church dating back to the 12th Century.  Further facilities can be found in the neighbouring town of Stockbridge (two miles) which offers a variety of shops, a Post Office, hotels, restaurants and public houses, churches, a doctor’s surgery and primary and secondary schools.  The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within a twenty minute drive, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country.
