The property is situated in Elm Road on the edge of Sherborne St John, a popular village situated just to the north of Basingstoke, with open views to the front. The village itself has a highly regarded primary school, a church and a public house, whilst Basingstoke itself offers a far more extensive range of leisure, recreational and educational facilities. The village is surrounded by open countryside and The Vyne, a National Trust house is nearby and there are lovely walks through protected woodland and water meadows.
There is access to the M3 via junction 6, and the mainline railway station in Basingstoke provides fast and frequent services to London Waterloo.
This is an attractive detached family home believed to date from 1936 and extended in 2004 to now offer comfortable family accommodation which retains much of its original character.
On the ground floor, the front door opens to the reception hall from which the staircase rises to the first floor landing. To one side is the dining room with a bay window, and to the other is the dual aspect sitting room with exposed floorboards and a fireplace with fitted log burning stove. Twin glazed doors open to the extended kitchen/breakfast room. This is dual aspect with a bay window from which French doors open to the rear garden. The floor is tiled with underfloor heating and there is a range of wooden fronted units with a central peninsular bar with granite work surfaces, a butler’s sink, a range cooker, fridge and dishwasher. There is also a large utility room and a cloakroom.
On the first floor, the master bedroom has a bay window and an en-suite shower room, and there are four further bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The property is screened from the road by mature hedging. A gated concrete drive leads up past one side of the house to the parking area at the back in front of the detached double garage which has a room above.
The landscaped gardens are fully enclosed, principally by mature hedging, and offer a good degree of privacy. Laid primarily to lawn with flower and shrub beds and borders there is also a paved terrace ideal for al fresco dining.
