Property Details


A most attractive Grade II Listed linked cottage, constructed with flint elevations with brick quoins and banding beneath a recently replaced (2017) thatched roof.  The cottage has an attractive double frontage with a central thatched porch.  The accommodation has the advantage of good ceiling heights throughout and comprises a dual aspect sitting room and separate dining room with a dual aspect open fireplace between the two rooms.  There is also a kitchen, rear lobby and cloakroom on the ground floor.  To the first floor there is a good size central landing featuring wide exposed floor boards, two double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, as well as a bathroom.  The good size main garden extends to the rear of the cottage where there is a brick terrace, veranda and detached outbuilding divided into two useful areas.  The main split level garden is elevated and views can be enjoyed over parts of the Bourne Valley.


The property is situated in the centre of the village of Hurstbourne Tarrant which has a store, church, primary school, garage (for car sales only), public house with restaurant and B&B, veterinary practice and tea room. There are bus services to Newbury (about 10½ miles) and Andover (about 6 miles), where a more comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities can be found.  The nearby towns of Whitchurch and Andover have mainline railway stations providing fast services to London (Waterloo) as well as Newbury, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London via the M3 and to the West Country.
