Heather Glen is an outstanding property totalling in excess of 3,400 sq ft and is the result of an extensive programme of enlargement and refurbishment overseen by the current owners. With exceptionally well proportioned accommodation arranged over two floors the house is perfectly configured for both day to day family living and entertaining.
Entered via the attractive covered porch that opens onto the hallway which in turn leads to the superb 34ft triple aspect sitting room featuring a large open fireplace with a wood burning stove and two sets of French doors leading onto the west facing terrace. The family room could suit a variety of purposes and also benefits from French doors leading out onto the garden as does the kitchen/dining room. Attractively and thoughtfully fitted out, and arranged around the central island unit, the kitchen serves as the heart of the house and benefits from granite worktops throughout and extensive storage with a good range of fitted units, as does the utility room. There is also a study, boot room and wc. A solid oak staircase leads to the large second floor landing where the well-proportioned bedrooms all enjoy views over the garden and eaves storage. The 25 ft triple aspect master bedroom is of particular note and the en suites and family bathroom are beautifully fitted and extensively finished in marble. An internal inspection is strongly recommended.
The property occupies a tucked away position in the highly sought after village of Itchen Abbas which offers a village hall, primary school and pub. The well regarded golf course at Avington is within 1.5 miles and, being within the Itchen Valley and on the western fringes of the South Downs National Park, there are many acres of fine countryside and world renowned fishing close to hand. A wide range of amenities can be found in the Georgian market town of Alresford (3.5 miles) and the cathedral city of Winchester (5 miles). First class communication links include an excellent rail service from Winchester to Waterloo in about an hour, the A31, A33 and M3 giving access to the national road network and Southampton Airport (16 miles) providing domestic and international flights.
The property is approached via a long driveway with electric wooden gates that provide a good degree of privacy and open out onto a large parking/turning area with space for numerous vehicles. The garden wraps around the house and is mainly laid to lawn with gated access onto a footpath at the rear that was originally part of the Watercress Line and ideal for dog walks.
