A delightful village home sitting in a wonderful elevated position with views over the Itchen Valley. The property was extended in 2009 to create a spacious sitting room and master suite upstairs. There is plenty of versatile space and a natural flow to the accommodation. Additional benefits include driveway parking, a garage and a pretty south-facing garden, which wraps around to the side and front. Itchen Abbas is ideally located midway between Winchester and Alresford, and is on the northern edge of the South Downs National Park.
The entrance hall is at the rear of the property, from where stairs lead up to the first floor. Because it is closer to the driveway, the owners use the rear lobby/hall to access the house. The light and airy lobby has plenty of storage and doors off to a study and cloakroom. An opening leads into the spacious kitchen/breakfast room, which features country-style units and solid wood worktops, a double ceramic sink, an electric range cooker and tiled flooring. A dishwasher, washing machine, drier and fridge/freezer are available if wanted. The breakfast room has French doors to the side garden. There is a sizeable dining room with a view of the garden, and a well-proportioned sitting room, featuring a Clearview wood burning stove, with a tiled hearth, and French doors to the garden.
On the first floor landing there is a loft access hatch with loft ladder. The spacious master bedroom has double aspect windows as well as its own dressing room with built-in wardrobes, and an en-suite bathroom with a separate bath and shower. There are two further double bedrooms, both having built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom.
A five bar gate opens to the driveway and to the front garden, which has several flower/shrub beds and a path to the house. The garden wraps around to the side and rear, where there is a shed and a lawned garden to the rear, which is bordered by hedging.
