Property Description
Clare Cottage is Listed Grade II and has colour washed cobb walls with a combed wheat reed thatch and pretty eyebrow windows. Originally two cottages, now combined to form a charming country home, the property retains most of its original features, including inglenook fireplace
with large bread oven, exposed beams, latch doors and leaded windows. There is also a double garage and separate large workshop.

The accommodation is as shown on the floor plan and includes a welcoming entrance hall leading into an impressive sitting room and very spacious garden room. This room includes an inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove with exposed beams to the ceiling. Large picture windows and doors open from the garden
room onto the terrace beyond.

The kitchen/breakfast room is of farmhouse style with slate flooring, a range of wall and base storage units, 4 ring gas hob and extractor, plumbing for dishwasher, integrated fridge/freezer and Alpha heating and cooking range. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room with Belfast sink. Accessed from the kitchen and the entrance hall is the dining room with inglenook fireplace, built in cupboard and exposed ceiling beams. Beyond the sitting room is an attractive study.

On the first floor is the impressive master bedroom suite with built in wardrobes, double aspect and steps up to a good sized en-suite with bath, shower, hand basin and w.c.. Three further good bedrooms, a large shower room with walk in shower, w.c. and hand basin, and a further
bathroom with bath, w.c. and handbasin complete the first floor accommodation.

Clare Cottage sits in a superb plot of approximately 0.65 acres. The house is approached from the minor Cholderton road through a gated entrance to a large gravelled
turning and parking area. A double garage, with electricity and light, lies to west of the house with parking to the front.

The large plot is a particular attraction of the house and to the front and side are areas of lawn, with well stocked borders containing a variety of shrubs, flowers and lavender. There is also a thatched feature well. Beyond the garaging is a large lawned area including a variety of specimen trees which add to the appeal of the property and the setting of the house.

To the rear is a very large workshop (47’11” x 11’6”), with double doors to one end, which is suitable for a variety of uses. Closer to the house at the rear is a landscaped area, terrace
and rockery including a water cascade and feature fountain.

Andover also has a mainline railway station providing trains to London Waterloo (1hr 11 mins) and Grateley Station on the same line is also within 5 miles.

independent and state schools together with a grammar school in Salisbury. The new popular garden/shopping centre at Rosebourne is only a few moments away.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
