Situated in this highly sought after location stands this unique 1930's home, offered to the market having been sympathetically extended and improved by the current owners.
No. 72 Winchester Road is set back from the road and at an angle to make the very most of the stunning views. This gorgeous family home welcomes you through a door with a stained glass window into a bright and airy entrance hall, offering central access to the principal living room with an attractive bay window. Triple aspect windows flood the room with light, and an electric stove gives the room an incredibly cosy feel in the evenings and during the colder months. There is a sizeable dining room with original floorboards that carry through into the stunning garden room/orangery, with lantern and double doors that open out to the garden. A separate kitchen features an array of oak base level units complemented with granite worktops and travertine floor tiles that gives this kitchen a functional yet stylish look. Offset from the kitchen is a utility with plumbing to tuck away the white goods, and offers access to the front and rear of the property along with the integral double garage with an electric roller door. The downstairs also features a downstairs cloakroom with w/c and wash hand basin, along with a separate study.
Stairs lead to the first floor with a galleried landing, giving access to four bedrooms and a modernised family bathroom. It is worth noting that three of the bedrooms are large enough for double beds, with particular note to the 3rd bedroom which features a balcony that is perfect to enjoy summer evenings and the gorgeous sunsets in the distance.
The owners extended into the loft to create a guest bedroom with a separate en suite shower facility, where storage space has not been compromised with an easily accessibly loft space that is boarded and lit.
The established gardens are simply breathtaking and make for a wonderful place to enjoy soaking up the sun, reading a good book and entertaining with family and friends. The area is fully enclosed and secluded with an array of mature border shrubs and trees, with particular note to a Magnolia Grandiflora that flowers later in the summer and into the autumn. There are an array of trees including an apple tree and a plum tree, fruit canes, rhubarb, vegetable beds and a large greenhouse to the rear of the garden too. Located just outside the kitchen is a herb garden, with a small patio area ideal for alfresco dining.
The house is well-positioned for accessing Andover town centre along with commuter facilities including the a303 and mainline station. There are several good schools in the area. The bus for Winchester and Peter Symonds College is across the road from the property, with Anton Junior School and John Hanson Secondary both nearby. Just across the road from the property is a footpath that joins the start of ‘Lady’s walk’, which is about a 2-kilometre walk. Rooksbury Mill Nature Reserve is at the bottom of the road with wonderful lakes that have wildlife all year round, and a children’s park. For a longer walk you have the Harewood forest or Wherwell Cow Common and onto the Mayfly pub for lunch. Stockbridge is a 15-minute drive and has exclusive delicatessen, fishmonger, butcher and shopping. There are 2 golf courses in very close proximity: Andover Golf Club, a stroll down the road and the Hampshire Golf Club a 5-minute drive. The cinema and the theatre are both easy walking distance or a very short drive.
