A spacious modern house providing excellent family accommodation with good size reception rooms and four double bedrooms, standing within beautifully landscaped mature gardens and grounds extending to over one third of an acre enjoying a secluded and peaceful setting on the edge of this sought after village
A substantial modern house, understood to have been built during the mid 1980s and extended more recently by the present owners. The light and airy accommodation comprises a central reception hall with cloakroom, living room with fireplace opening onto a separate dual aspect garden room, large formal dining room, study and a good size kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining separate utility and door into the double garage. To the first floor there is a triple aspect master bedroom suite with dressing area and en suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms (one with a low door into a boarded loft room, ideal for storage or a children’s den) and family shower room. The house stands in a good size plot of about 0.37 acres and features a particularly attractive mature garden with colourful well stocked borders, a variety of mature trees and a secret lower garden area to the front boundary.
The property is situated on the edge of the village of Penton Mewsey which has a church, public house, bus service, village hall, pre-school nursery, tennis and cricket club as well as an active village community. There is a primary school in Hatherden and the nearby village of Weyhill has an excellent new ‘Rosebourne’ garden centre complex with restaurant and shop, as well as a church, garage, ‘Pink Olive’ restaurant and two public houses and a craft centre. The town of Andover, just 3 miles away, offers 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 the hour). The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient road access to London and the West Country. The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within approximately 20 miles, as is Basingstoke.
