Lupin Cottage is a detached Grade II listed character cottage constructed of mainly cream washed smooth rendered and brick elevations beneath a thatched roof. The beautifully presented
accommodation has been cleverly re-configured and restored by the current owners to create a stunning home with modern conveniences whilst retaining the charm and character of the house.
The accommodation is as shown on the floor plan and includes a good sized sitting room featuring a magnificent inglenook fireplace as well as numerous exposed beams and timbers. Adjoining is a separate dining room with vaulted ceiling, walk-in storage with shelving and access to overhead storage space. The dining room looks over the raised beds of the kitchen garden.
The kitchen/breakfast room includes bespoke units from John Lewis of Hungerford, incorporating high and low level storage and open fronted display shelving, a deep Butler sink with central mixer tap. Wooden fronted ceramic tiled work surfaces. ‘Neff’ stainless steel built-under oven and grill (replaced within the last year) with four ring gas hob over and high level open fronted book shelving to one side, plumbing for dish washer. The kitchen exudes charm with exposed ceiling timber and Quarry tiled flooring. There is space for a breakfast table in front of the leaded picture window overlooking the landscaped garden. There is a separate utility/boiler room which opens out onto the garden. The main bathroom is also well appointed and is situated close to the stairs on the ground floor. It includes half travertine tiles from Fired Earth, and a white suite comprising bath with folding glass screen and wall mounted shower.
There are three double bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom has an impressive vaulted ceiling, brick fireplace and an ingenious concealed shower room, again all beautifully presented. The second bedroom also has a fireplace and exposed oak beams. The third bedroom is approached through a separate landing area which gives it a feeling of privacy making it ideal as a study, guest
accommodation or as a teenager’s room.
Lupin Cottage sits in an award winning landscaped garden including a particularly impressive collection of David Austin roses, lupins and a variety of mature shrubs and borders. The garden is separated into different areas providing areas of colour throughout the seasons and privacy. There is a terrace and summer house as well as a garden shed/store.
The gravelled parking area is verged by curved dwarf brick retaining walls behind with colourful well stocked borders planted with a great variety of mature and flowering plants and shrubs(designed by Crocus for RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2010 with other beds in the main garden designed as cutting beds by Sarah Raven which have so far provided flowers for three local weddings). The parking area is screened to the front by low picket fencing and provides access to the garage with its attractive pitched slate roof.
Abbotts Ann has a public house, church, recently built primary school, award winning community post office and store and nearby garden centre. Andover, approximately three miles away, provides a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline railway station with fast services to London (Waterloo in just over one hour). There is also a main line railway station at Grateley, approximately ten minutes’ drive away. The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country and the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are both within about twenty minutes’ drive.
