Nestled in the highly sought-after village of Lower Chute is this magnificent period house and cottage steeped in history and with an abundance of character and charm. This is an exciting opportunity to acquire this much loved family home which has been occupied by my clients for over 30 years. The history dates back to the 17th Century when a house occupied the site, subsequently it burnt down and the house as it stands today was built in 1879 which traded up until the 1960’s as a beer and spirit house known as The Star.



The large detached house provides approximately 2000 square foot of accommodation including multiple reception rooms, 5 bedrooms and a cellar. The ground floor has an inviting entrance hallway with original features including display alcoves and bay windows leading to a large open drawing room with dual aspect and a wood burning stove. The formal dining room is also dual aspect with a pine boarded floor and double French doors leading to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room has integrated appliances and ample storage leading to a good size utility/boot room housing the oil fired boiler and cloakroom. The cellar which still has the historic pad where the barrels landed, is now used as a workshop and additional storage. The central pine staircase leads to the first floor where there is master bedroom with double built in wardrobes, a further four bedrooms, a family bathroom plus an additional shower room. The loft can be accessed from the landing and from bedroom two which is mostly boarded and fantastic potential to be converted to further accommodation if required.



Within the grounds is a two double bedroom cottage with a large sitting room. The cottage benefits from UPVC double glazed windows, a newly fitted kitchen, a separate bathroom, and plenty of storage. This is a fantastic addition to the property which is very versatile as it can be used as a self contained annex, a large home office or it could provide a further income through a holiday let or permanent rental.



The enclosed mature rear garden which is mostly walled has been designed with multiple areas to benefit from the sun throughout the day. The garden is planted with a wide variety of trees and shrubs including a magnolia tree, roses and a flowering cherry tree covered in wisteria. The five-bar gate opens onto a large gravel driveway and a single garage.



Location

In the sought after ‘Chutes’, Lower Chute is small idyllic hamlet surrounded in countryside on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border. The house lies within a conservation area and an Area of Outstanding Beauty. Within the village is a picturesque thatched public house, Hatchett Inn dating back to the 15th Century. Lower Chute is perfectly positioned in a quiet, rural setting but with great access to the A303/M3/M4 giving great road access to London, West Country and further afield. Grateley and Andover are within close proximity, which both provide a direct train service to London Waterloo.
