SITUATION

Ashe Warren is a small rural hamlet, located in an enviable rural position to the west of Basingstoke, and close to the villages of North Waltham and Overton. There is a church at Ashe. At North Waltham there is a highly regarded primary school along with a shop and a pub. The Test-valley village of Overton is only 2 miles away and provides more extensive facilities catering for most day-to-day requirements, with a range of shops, pubs and restaurants, a school, doctors’ surgery and railway station to London. Basingstoke offers an extensive range of leisure, recreational and educational facilities.

Despite its rural position, the property is very accessible with mainline railway stations in both Overton and Basingstoke providing fast and frequent services to London Waterloo, and Junction 7 of the M3 is within a short drive.

THE PROPERTY

Believed to date from the late 18th Century, the property has recently been extended to now provide very comfortable three bedroomed accommodation, and planning permission has now been granted for the erection of a garage with room above. The property retains much of its original character with exposed beams and log burning stoves in the two reception rooms, but also benefits from double glazing.

Briefly, the accommodation comprises, on the ground floor, a hall, with cloakroom off, a lovely triple aspect sitting room with French doors to the rear terrace, a dining room, a recently fitted kitchen/breakfast room and there is a small cellar. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two double and one single, and the recently fitted family bathroom.

OUTSIDE

The gardens are a delight lying primarily to the rear and to one side of the cottage, backing on to and overlooking open farmland. There is off road parking and planning permission (ref: 17/00200/HSE) for a detached garage with adjoining workshop and room above. The gardens themselves are fully enclosed and level and very long, divided in to a number of distinct areas. There is a large paved terrace adjoining the cottage and then lawns with flower and shrub beds and borders, a pond, a shed and greenhouse an area for vegetables and chickens and a number of trees.
