Kings Somborne, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
A large attractive extended semi-detached period cottage situated along a quiet lane serving a handful of properties within the heart of this popular village
A highly attractive Grade II Listed period cottage, formerly two cottages that have been extended to the rear, constructed of herringbone brick elevations beneath a thatched roof. There is a large driveway to the side of the cottage providing off-road parking and leading to a useful detached garage. The main mature garden extends to the rear of the cottage and enjoys privacy. The accommodation that has the tremendous benefit of reasonably good ceiling heights throughout, comprises an entrance hall, dual aspect sitting room with brick fireplace, dual aspect garden/dining room and a large farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with Rayburn and space for a large dining table. There is also a useful compact utility and shower room on the ground floor. To the first floor there are four bedrooms, a bathroom and well fitted cloakroom.
Agent’s Note: The property, whilst tucked away in a quiet location, is fairly central to the village and its useful range of amenities.
The property is situated off a narrow lane along a ‘no through’ road in the popular village of King’s Somborne which offers everyday facilities including a Post Office/store, primary school, church and public house. The picturesque town of Stockbridge, traversed by the River Test, is just three minutes away to north and offers a variety of shops, Post Office, hotels and public houses, tea rooms/restaurants, churches, a doctors’ surgery and primary and secondary schools. The abbey town of Romsey is approximately seven miles to the south, and the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within a half hour drive. There are also excellent road links to London and the West Country via the M3 and A303 and also to the South Coast.
