Property Details

A charming example of a late Victorian cottage complete with a riverside location and proximity to town centre amenities whilst open countryside is not far away. Deceptively spacious for a terraced property, Riverside Cottage offers a unique opportunity for a new owner with the combination of location, period character and great accommodation throughout. The well presented property comprises a front aspect living room, open-plan kitchen/dining room, ground floor bathroom, conservatory and three bedrooms. An attractive, mature rear garden backs directly on to the River Anton with a covered, decked seating area, complete with power and lighting to make the most of those riverside views.

The front of the property is accessed directly off South Street with a path leading through a small, mature herbaceous front garden. A covered porch shelters the front door that leads directly into an entrance lobby where the stairs lead up to the first floor. To the right, a door opens up to welcome you in to a cosy, front-aspect living room with a box bay window allowing ample natural light to flood in. The original open fireplace, with exposed brick surround now houses a modern electric fire in wood burning stove style, set on a natural stone hearth. There is built in, understairs storage and an internal door that leads through to the open-plan kitchen/dining room, this space typical of cottage theme with Italian clay-fired floor tiles, an original, exposed brick, open fireplace along with solid oak worksurfaces spanning oak-fronted kitchen units. There is space for all the usual kitchen appliances plus a door to a walk-in pantry. A door leads from the kitchen to a small utility area, complete with space and plumbing for a washing machine before leading on to the bathroom whilst there is separate access from the kitchen into a rear-aspect conservatory, via a small internal lobby,

The first floor provides three bedrooms, a front aspect master with a built-in wardrobe cupboard and a good-sized rear aspect single both have original, now, feature fireplaces. Additionally, a second double bedroom, also with rear aspect, takes in those views across the River Anton to the rear. The garden to the rear has a path leading through to the decked riverside seating area with mature herbaceous and flower borders either side. The views across the river are west facing, perfect for watching the sunset of a summer evening.

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. South Street is a one-way street for traffic and starts from the town centre at the junction of Bridge Street and Winchester Street; it is literally a stones-throw from the town centre and all the usual amenities but has a calm, residential feel. The location is on the sought after southern side of the town with its proximity to not only the town centre but also the nearest outlying village of Upper Clatford and nearby open countryside. Rooksbury Mill Lakes and Nature Reserve are close by as are two golf clubs located either side of the A303. The property also benefits from proximity to nearby primary and secondary schools.
