This delightful bungalow eases you into a relaxing life within the Bourne Valley.
Immortalised in the 1924 book, 'Where the bright waters meet', the valley of the Bourne Rivulet is a wonderful undulating slice of Hampshire countryside.
Within it, Stoke is a small village, almost more a hamlet, between Hurstbourne Tarrant and St Mary Bourne. Andover is only a fraction over five miles distant and this is a beautiful spot to escape to.
The bungalow in question lured our clients with its delightful grounds, captivating views and the chance to escape whilst still being near all the facilities of Andover and Newbury. The decked area at the top of the garden is a marvellous spot and as you stand there, calm descends as you gaze out across a very English scene to the far hillside.
Footpaths cross the countryside and many delightful hours of exploration await anyone who wishes to enjoy a good ramble.
As for the bungalow, previous owners extended the property to the rear and this transformed the accommodation.
A lovely sitting room to the front enjoys a double aspect that draws light in and allows you to appreciate the view. Stripped wood floors bounce the light around and a fireplace provides a perfect focal point to make this a real 'all year round' room.
For us the delight comes where the extension alters the accommodation. The discovery of a living space that has a very modern feel to it, an open plan family/dining room that opens into the kitchen, still manages to retain a very traditional feel with another fireplace as the focus again. French doors can be thrown open to enhance the feeling of being at one with your surroundings.
The extension also provides a utility room that makes living here even more practical and easy, ensuring the kitchen has one use, the one it was intended for.
Three bedrooms run down the left-hand side of the bungalow, each one slightly different in character, our clients use the middle one as an office.
There is off road parking as you arrive. A front garden leads you to the home and has wonderful potential for more planting. Paths to either side lead to the rear, lapping around the bungalow and the main area has different seating areas and space for a garden shed.
Not only does this home sit within a beautiful piece of countryside that you will enjoy exploring, it provides a garden that will delight you through the seasons and prompt many happy memories to be made.Get in touch if you like this home.
