A spacious detached bungalow in need of updating, lying in a rural hamlet, well placed for mainline communications The hamlet of Woodmancott lies on the immediate eastern side of the M3 and A33 between the Cathedral City of Winchester (10 miles) to the south, and the major town of Basingstoke (10 miles) to the north, in the Civil Parish of Micheldever, and in the City of Winchester District of Hampshire. Woodmancott is surrounded mainly by downland and open countryside and the village is grouped around St James Church. Within the hamlet are a range of former agricultural buildings known as ''The Calvert Centre' which have been converted to provide both industrial and warehouse accommodation to small businesses. There are local amenities in the nearby villages of North Waltham, Dummer and Micheldever. The latter has a station to London Waterloo. Woodmancott is well placed with fast access onto the A33/A30, the A303/A34 and the M3. These road links provide good access to many parts of the country including the M25 orbital motorway, the airports, and London. Basingstoke also has a mainline station to London Waterloo with a fast commuter service. The property is a detached bungalow, but it has a fascinating history with its origins dating back to circa 1870/1890, when it was a sheep drovers' public house known as ''The Old House at Home'. Bought by the current owner in 1997, the property was subsequently extended and remodelled in early 2000. The bungalow has brick elevations, part colour washed, inset upvc double glazed windows under a tiled roof. Now in need of updating, but the accommodation is very spacious, extending to some 2158 sq ft. The accommodation broadly comprises Entrance hall, cloakroom, sitting room, wood burning stove, double doors opening into Dining/Family Room and Bar, vaulted, tongue and groove wood boarding and facing brick. In one corner is a fitted bar and sliding doors open out to the terrace and the swimming pool area. The kitchen/breakfast room is L-shaped and vaulted with oak panel fronted units and laminated work surfaces. Bedroom 1 has a dressing room and shower room. There is a separate door to the utility room which has an internal door into the double garage. There are three further bedrooms (one currently used as a study), and a bathroom. Outside A pair of five bar automatic opening gates give access to a gravel driveway, providing ample parking and turning space. It also leads to the attached double garage. In one corner of the garage is the Grant oil fired boiler which provides the central heating and domestic hot water for the property. Mature gardens surround the property. The bungalow is situated back in its plot close to the south eastern boundary where it adjoins open countryside. To the front is an area of lawn, trees, shrubs and mature hedging. To the south western side of the bungalow, enclosed by mature shrubs and fencing, lies the tiled swimming pool set in a paved surround and a pool house contains the boiler and filtration equipment. We have no knowledge as to whether or not this is in working condition. The gardens extend in all to about 0.292 acres (0.118 ha).
