Magnificent detached family home with an abundance of versatile space. The property has an airy feel, thanks in part to its high ceilings and large windows, whilst split-level hall and landing areas add interest to the space. A spacious central entrance hall enjoys a light and open feeling, with a vaulted ceiling to the first floor. The kitchen/breakfast room is a fantastic space found on the lower level of the entrance hall, perfect for convivial living with an extensive range of oak units and a central island, all with solid granite worksurfaces over, and ample space for a dining table. A beautifully proportioned sitting room enjoys a dual aspect and wood burning stove with a limestone surround, and is accompanied by a formal dining room and a separate study/family room. The first floor boasts a beautiful master suite, with high vaulted ceilings, dormer windows and a wealth of built in storage. The master bedroom is served by a beautifully refitted en-suite shower room. Three further bedrooms are found on the first floor, with a large four-piece bathroom which has also been re-fitted. Outside the property is approached via a private driveway which also accesses the integral double garage. A lovely garden lies to the rear and enjoys a high level of privacy. It has a large lawn beyond a paved patio. An area has been built up to create a high-level patio and dining terrace, cleverly using the camber of the land. Raised planters lie to the foot of the garden, which are ideal for fruit and vegetable growing.
Nestled in this small enclave of one of Littleton's most sought-after addresses, the property enjoys a notably quiet and secluded position. Families are particularly drawn to Littleton and it has long been regarded as a top village location so close to Winchester. This is due to the thriving community and pretty Church, recreation centre with village hall, bowls, cricket, football and tennis clubs. The Running Horse public house is situated a short walk away. Excellent shopping facilities exist on Stockbridge Road where there is a Waitrose store, as well as smaller retailers and Friarsgate Doctors' Surgery. Primary schooling at Sparsholt, Henry Beaufort & Westgate secondary schools and Peter Symonds sixth form college are within easy reach. There are also excellent transport links to London by train or road and Southampton International Airport, with the South Coast nearby for sailing, and excellent local access to open countryside for walking, cycling and riding.
