Extended and improved by the current owners during their recent tenure, this three bedroomed detached bungalow is located in one of Andover's most established residential areas and benefits from its proximity to town centre amenities and local schools whilst having open countryside never far away. The current owners have extensively landscaped the outside space to form an attractive, low maintenance and practical rear garden with generous driveway parking to the front. The well presented accommodation has a light and airy feel throughout, encompassing natural light and comprises a modern, contemporary, open-plan living/kitchen/dining room, utility room, cloakroom, three double bedrooms and a family bathroom along with an attached garage with electric door, power and lighting.
Andover offers a range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities including a college of further education, a cinema, theatre and leisure centre. The mainline railway station runs a direct route to London's Waterloo in just over an hour whilst the nearby A303 offers good road access to both London and the West Country. Belmont Road can be found on the southern side of Andover off Winchester Road via Old Winton Road and gives good access not only to the town centre but also open countryside with Rooksbury Mill Nature Reserve, Harewood Forest and the outlying Clatford villages a short distance away. Andover Golf Club can be found on Winchester Road with the Hampshire Golf Club a short distance further on as Winchester Road heads towards Stockbridge, Wherwell, Chilbolton and the River Test.
The bungalow occupies a corner plot with pedestrian access from Belmont Road via a wrought iron gate and stepped path leading to what is effectively the front door into the property located to one side. A side gate allows access into an enclosed rear garden whilst a block paved path leads from the front door to the front of the property which is mainly laid to block paving, providing driveway parking for up to five vehicles, bordered by brick walling and decorative wrought ironwork with mature shrub and hedging borders. Vehicular access onto the driveway is via South View Gardens and the driveway gives access to the attached garage with its electric up and over door.
