An atmospheric detached cottage, set at the end of a drive, within a private mainly walled garden with swimming pool and views across the village and Pillhill Brook meadows The charming and picturesque village of Amport lies on the course of the Pillhill Brook, along which are a variety of pretty north west Hampshire villages. Amport is highly regarded due to its infant school, its gastro pub, The Hawk Inn, church, and the wide open spaces of the village green with children's play area. The village lies in the triangle between Andover, Salisbury and Winchester, and is well placed for excellent communications including the A303 which links with the M3 at J8, as well as connecting with the A34, linking the Midlands with the South Coast at Bullington Cross. Andover (4 miles) offers a range of shops and facilities, and a mainline railway station with services to London Waterloo. The cottage is located in a unique setting, set well back from the road at the end of a drive on high ground. There are far reaching views over the village, surrounding countryside and the Pillhill Brook and its meadows beyond. The cottage, which has been much cherished by the current owners, has considerable charm, yet has many modern features including LED lighting, hand crafted oak ledge and brace doors, and a new contemporary cloakroom. A concealed and attractive porch leads into the reception hall. Off the hall is an L-shaped kitchen, well equipped with a range of floor and wall units. Appliances include an integrated oven and grill and split level four ring LPG gas hob. A door leads out to the garden terrace and the studio/home office, also accessed via the integral garage. The studio is currently used as a hobby room, but could also be used as an occasional bedroom for guests. It is well insulated with an outlook across the terrace and gardens. In the cottage the recently decorated sitting room has a log burning stove and is open plan to the dining area with door to the garden and terrace. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, each with an interesting view over the village, water meadows and countryside beyond. There is a modern bathroom. The cottage is nestled amongst thatched cottages and is screened on the whole by mature walls. There is a parking and turning area in front of the cottage and access to the single attached garage and adjoining studio. At the front of the cottage the gardens have been planted with mature borders and spring bulbs and the majority of the garden lies to the rear. There is a lower area of terrace and a picket fence and gate leading to the terrace and lawn, all offering a good level of privacy. The walls contribute towards a micro climate in the height of the season. Screened off in one corner of the garden is a heated swimming pool which was re-lined and has new LED lighting.
