An outstanding individual house

This inspiring detached house was built a couple of years ago to an individual design and a high specification which has resulted in an outstanding property with stylish accommodation full of light and with spacious rooms which work well on a practical level.

Chestnut House is set within just over an acre of private grounds in a peaceful rural setting bordering the North Wessex Downs in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. One of a handful of properties in the hamlet of Upper Enham, there are local shops and pubs in nearby villages and Andover is the nearest town, a little over three miles away.

The specification includes Michelmersh bricks and tiles on the outside with wonderful oak frame windows, and oak internal doors and flooring, together with travertine tiled bathrooms, underfloor heating to the ground floor and photovoltaic panels to offset electricity costs.

A square reception hall sits centrally and has doors to a cloakroom, two useful cupboards, the drawing room on the southern side with French doors opening to a westerly terrace, a study or family room and the impressive open plan kitchen where there is space for everyday living.

This immense room runs from a formal dining area at the front, through the well fitted kitchen with its range of integrated appliances, extensive storage, granite work surfaces and central island, to the wonderful oak framed garden room beyond featuring a large central roof lantern with vast windows taking in the view over the garden to the countryside beyond. Oak flooring runs through the entire 40’ room uniting the different areas.

A large utility/boot room links the kitchen to the double garage and has doors to the front and rear of the property. There is also a rear lobby with a cloakroom and a staircase rising to a double bedroom suite above the garage.

Back in the main part of the house there are four excellent double bedrooms on the first floor, all with fitted wardrobes, two with an adjoining bath or shower room, and a family bathroom.

The one acre grounds include a lovely sandstone terrace, accessed from the drawing room, study and garden room, an easily maintained level lawn, which runs down into a wild garden and copse and a network of paths through mature trees leads to adjoining farmland.

Offers are invited around £1,300,000 for the freehold of this outstanding individual house and enquiries should be directed to Evans & Partridge in Stockbridge on 01264 810702.
