The village itself has a church and recreation ground with cricket and tennis clubs and children's recreation area and falls within the catchment area of the highly regarded Priory Primary School.

The nearby village of Charter Alley has a public house, hairdresser and garage. There are shops, takeaways and a post office at Heath End, on the outskirts of Tadley. More extensive leisure, recreational and educational facilities are available within Basingstoke itself. Basingstoke also provides access to junction 6 of the M3 and has a mainline railway station to London Waterloo, and junctions 11 and 12 of the M4 are easily accessible, as are Newbury and Winchester.

The Property

Believed to date from 1938, Ashley is a detached house set back from the lane standing in a large garden backing onto and overlooking farmland. The property is offered in excellent order throughout and has the benefit of planning permission (ref: 14/00807/HSE) for a substantial two storey extension. Some of the foundations for the new extension have already been laid.

The current accommodation comprises, on the ground floor, a reception hall with cloakroom off, two reception rooms, a kitchen and a large utility room, and on the first floor, three bedrooms and the family bathroom, and extends to about 1300 sq.ft.

Planning Permission

The planning permission allows for the remodelling and extension of the current layout to create a superb family home with the following accommodation: on the ground floor, a central reception hall with cloakroom off with staircase rising and turning to the galleried landing above, a sitting room and study to one side (the foundations for which have already been laid) and with a large lifestyle kitchen/family/dining room to the rear with utility room off, with a garage to one side. On the first floor it offers a master bedroom with ensuite dressing room and bathroom, three further double bedrooms (although there is cope to create another) and a large family bathroom. Overall, the extended house would extend to about 3,000 sq.ft.


The property is screened from the lane by a mature hedge and is accessed via a five bar wooden gate over a gravel driveway which provides ample parking to one side of which is a converted carriage barn and stable which now offers two garages and a workshop.

The garden extends right around the property. It is level and laid primarily to lawn and is enclosed by a combination of mature hedging and solid wooden fencing. There are paddocks to the rear and fields to the front, over the lane.
