Modern house opens door to vibrant community

The area around Andover is blessed with several vibrant village communities, among them Goodworth Clatford, one half of “The Clatfords”.

The village, together with Upper Clatford, the other half of the pair, stands, alongside the River Anton as it flows to join the River Test at Fullerton through an area of great scenic beauty and appeal.

Among the more modern houses in Goodworth Clatford is Yewbank, an attractive four bedroom detached home in the centre of the village available to let very soon. It has been beautifully refurbished by the owners and now includes a recently updated kitchen and bathrooms.

Part of the work carried out on the house has included opening the kitchen into the dining room to create an attractive living / working space with double French windows into the garden.

The external appearance of Yewbank is enhanced by the inclusion of three dormers on both the front and rear elevations while the tiled canopy over the front door continues across to blend with the high-pitched roof that has allowed space for a bathroom above the former garage, now a utility providing extra appliance and work space.

Inside, the house is equally as appealing. There’s an entrance hall with doors to both the sitting room and kitchen. The sitting room has an open fireplace with double doors opposite linking to the dining room to form a great entertaining space, especially when combined with the rear terrace and the conservatory opening off the sitting room.

The first floor has the master suite across the front. The bedroom has sets of double wardrobes along one wall while the shower room has doors to both the bedroom and main landing. The other three bedrooms are across the rear of the house overlooking the lawned garden.

The Clatfords share three public houses…
