This is the first sale of Fenstanton in around 35 years. Thought to have been built in the early 20th century, the property was subsequently extended to the rear and a conservatory added. It now offers a spacious dormer style bungalow with flexible and readily adaptable accommodation. Situated within the village settlement boundary, the property is set back from and above the road in a generous garden. Entered from the front porch into a central hall, a particular feature of the house is the high ceilings. There are reception rooms to each side of the hall, both with fireplaces and attractive bay windows to the front of the property. The dining room links to the large conservatory and kitchen.
There is a good double bedroom on the ground floor plus a study or 4th bedroom and a bathroom. A narrow staircase leads up to further bedrooms and a bathroom.
To the back of the house is a utility area and store room.
The accommodation offers considerable scope for improvement and reconfiguration. In addition and subject to the necessary consents there may be an opportunity to redevelop.
The plot rises away from the road and there is an excellent detached garage with store/garden room above. The large garden to the rear is laid to lawn with mature hedges to the boundaries.
Chilbolton is an attractive village nestling on the River Test, in beautiful countryside between Winchester and Andover. It is large enough to support local facilities which include a general store/post office, church and pubs. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the attractive market town of Stockbridge, 4 miles away. The village hall supports many village events and a well-regarded preschool. The property is a short walk to Chilbolton Common, a designated Area of Special Scientific Interest.
There is a popular primary school in the neighbouring village of Wherwell and there are also private schools close by including Farleigh (3 miles) and Rookwood (4 miles). Andover is about 4 miles to the north and Winchester about 10 miles to the south, both with fast trains to London/Waterloo. About 2 miles from the village is access to the A303/M3.
