5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Village Street, Thruxton

5 3

Handsome family home in the heart of a thriving and well-connected village, with beautifully tended gardens, ample parking and space for additional garaging plus annexe potential. Viewings essential in order to fully appreciate the size and wonderful location. CHAIN ABOVE COMPLETE.

DESCRIPTION Believed to have been built in 1857, the land on which the house was built was once owned by members of the Lambourne family. Gently screened from the road by mature hedging and an attractive lightly wooded copse, the frontage of the property is partially rose-clad, with brick and flint elevations and is approached by a sweeping gravelled driveway leading to garaging and providing parking for multiple vehicles. The property has undergone a scheme of enlargement in more recent years and now proffers accommodation extending to approximately 3,000 sqft (280 sqm); with further updates including a rebuilt conservatory, updated central heating and hot water systems and the installation of a new boiler in 2018. The house itself lies towards the front of the plot, allowing for an impressively mature, level garden to the rear, abutting Pillhill brook to the western and northern boundaries. 

GROUND FLOOR ACCOMMODATION An updated conservatory to the front elevation currently has multiple uses and features log store to feed the open fire in the drawing room; with doors leading through into the generous hallway and dining room; this allows for a truly versatile space – ideal for entertaining. The hall allows access to the drawing room, dining room and kitchen and accommodates stairs rising to the equally expansive first floor landing. The drawing room is a particular feature of this splendid family home, with cosy open fireplace and enjoying a sunny triple aspect with gorgeous sash window to the front and window to the side in addition to French doors leading to the terrace and rear garden beyond. The dining room is a wonderfully sociable yet cosy room, located adjacent to the kitchen and also accessible from the conservatory. Lying to the rear of the property on the ground floor is the kitchen, which has been sympathetically fitted with oak units and enjoys views over the grounds to the rear; there is a separate breakfast area at one end – perfect for morning coffee in more intimate surroundings. Accessed by a useful hallway with doors leading to the front and rear, can be found a part-converted garage which is currently being used as a second study; adjacent to this is a separate utility room. Given their configuration, the agent believes that the garages could be converted to form fully self-contained annexe accommodation; with the possibility of a cart-lodge being built to the front of the house to compensate, allowing for garaging and further external storage. 

FIRST FLOOR ACCOMMODATION The first floor accommodation is configured in such a way to allow for ample flexibility, catering for a variety of purchaser's differing requirements. The large landing accessed from the main staircase is currently used as a dressing area, but could be reconfigured to create a further bedroom or home office with ease. The master bedroom commands views across the rear garden and Pillhill Brook, whilst benefitting from an en-suite with four piece bathroom suite; with the family four-piece bathroom and second and third bedrooms also occupying the main section of the first floor. The third bedroom allows access into a further landing which is primarily accessed via a second staircase rising from the hall on the ground floor, this leads to two further bedrooms and bathroom; making this space ideal for teenagers or a children's 'den'.
 

OUTSIDE The breathtaking gardens have been lovingly cultivated by the current owners over the past two decades of their ownership and feature a central lawned area surrounded by well-stocked beds filled with colourful spring bulbs, mature perennials and shrubs. An impressive rose clad pergola over a charming terraced area creates an ideal outdoor entertaining space, enjoying wonderful views across the gardens beyond. The gardens are both mature and carefully designed to fully maximise the wonderful setting, with the garden being surrounded on two sides by Pillhill Brook. 

LOCATION Thruxton is a wonderfully small yet thriving Hampshire village. It has just won Hampshire Association of Local Councils Small Village of the Year award 2019. Located close to the A303 and being approximately five miles from the nearby market town of Andover, it's a 70-minute link to London Waterloo. Despite its proximity to the A303, the house is not affected by traffic noise due to its sheltered position. Racing at Thruxton race circuit is legally restricted to six weekends per year, with no access to the circuit through the village – villagers are also entitled to free entry on race days.

Thruxton itself plays host to a lively community and active church, with the Parish Council having produced a comprehensive design statement designed to guide any restricted future development. The trustee-run village hall hosts a wide range of activities including ballet classes, line dancing, gardening club, community club and annual Remembrance Day lunch; there is also an annual summer fete and regular social evenings.
