A detached character family house at the end of a long drive, set within beautiful mature gardens The pretty villages of Middle Wallop and Over Wallop lie on the western side of Stockbridge in the Test valley to the north of the A343 Salisbury Road. The village is lined with many attractive period properties, a number being thatched and listed. There is a public house, church and a community village shop/post office and there is also a thriving community with a diversity of clubs and societies. The Georgian town of Stockbridge lies about six miles to the east and is an excellent centre for day to day shopping and it has a doctors' surgery, whilst the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester and the former market town of Andover are all within easy driving distance. There is fast access to London either via the A303/M3 or by rail with mainline stations at Grateley, two miles, Andover or Winchester. The property is a detached character lodge style family home which enjoys a high ground setting with views across the top of the village. The property is a clever fusion of living space where the bedrooms and entertaining rooms are located at either end of the property, separated by the entrance hall. The property is not apparent from the road however once inside a very special and much loved home is revealed. The sitting room has an open fireplace and there is an adjoining dining room, doors leading out to the rear garden and terrace, kitchen/family room, and all with high ceilings. The main bedroom is split level, double aspect and there is an en suite shower room and separate wc. There are three further bedrooms, bathroom and separate wc. The house cannot be seen from the road as it is at the end of a long rising driveway, partly screened by a detached garage. There is a parking and turning area in front of the property with the front garden shielded by mature hedgerow and a cob wall. The drive is flanked by perennial and shrub borders and the majority of the garden lies to the rear and is tiered and provides natural terraces. The garden is an absolute joy, wonderfully mature, with a small orchard, and is partly walled within a cob wall. There is a brick built greenhouse and adjoining garden store. Lawns sweep between the different levels and are interspersed by a variety of mature trees, including mulberry, fig and Tibetan cherry, , all underplanted with perennial borders to provide interest throughout the year. To the rear of the kitchen and dining room and through a clipped hedge there is a sitting/terrace area. At one end of the garden there is a lightly wooded area with pathway leading down to the workshop which adjoins the property. The property rises to where it backs onto farmland. This all combines to create a wonderful setting that is a real surprise.
