3 bedrooms

An attractive 2/3 bedroom detached cottage providing surprisingly light and airy accommodation together with interesting part walled gardens situated in the heart of the village

Property Details


A detached Grade II Listed cottage, constructed of colour washed/timber-framed elevations under a thatched roof that was fully rethatched in 2015. The cottage has clearly been rebuilt in more recent years and hence offers practical light and airy rooms with good ceiling heights throughout and benefits from oil fired central heating with radiators.  The accommodation comprises a reception hall with cloakroom, a dual aspect sitting room with an interesting fireplace housing a log burning stove and a separate study/bedroom three.  There is an L-shaped kitchen with separate family dining area with stable door and large windows overlooking the gardens. To the first floor there is a large dual aspect master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a separate dressing room leading into an en suite shower room, a spacious second bedroom and a bathroom.  It is also worth noting that there is a large fully boarded loft space with power and light running the full length of the cottage providing comprehensive storage.  The interesting gardens are a salient feature of the property and comprise a southerly facing private garden located to the side and rear of the cottage with a gateway leading through a thatched capped wall into a separate ‘secret garden’.

Agent’s Note:  Planning permission (since lapsed) was granted for the construction of a new vehicular access to provide a larger parking area to the side of the cottage.  Application 10/01585/FULLN.


The property is approached via a bridge over the Wallop Brook, situated in the heart of the village of Over Wallop, a Conservation Area renowned for its many period cottages and houses, which offers everyday amenities including a Post Office/shop, church and public house.  The nearby town of Andover has a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to London (Waterloo in just over one hour).  (The neighbouring village of Grateley also has a mainline railway station).  The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within half an hour’s drive away.
