Polar opposites help emphasise strong market presence

Two homes that help emphasise the strong Carter Jonas presence in north Hampshire are polar opposites, one to the south east of Andover, the other to the north west, that are also vastly different in age and style.

But they both offer fantastic family accommodation, one with an annexe and the other with a versatile roof space that doubles as a well-lit studio or fifth bedroom.

Lavender House in Church Lane at Goodworth Clatford (offers in excess of £750,000 EPC Band D) was built as recently as 2012 in mellow brick. It enjoys a superb Test Valley setting close to the confluence of the River Anton with the Test. The Clatfords make up a delightful pair of villages with excellent facilities that include three pub restaurants, a community shop, school, and two village halls as well as a small garage. They are set out along a scenic back route connecting Andover with Stockbridge, passing close to the fabulous Leckford Estate farm shop operated by Waitrose.

The house has a southerly facing rear outlook and across the rear of the ground floor is a comprehensively equipped kitchen, including a cutting-edge three oven electric Aga, and linked family room where French windows open into the rear garden, a living space with a real wow factor. The ground floor also has separate dining and sitting rooms with zoned underfloor heating throughout. The first floor is home to four exceptionally proportioned bedrooms, the master en-suite, and a landing study area that could easily convert to extra bedroom space.

Bay Tree Cottage at Fyfield (£795,000 EPC Band F) is altogether different, dating quite probably from around 1700 although still geared to modern family needs. It has a separate annexe with a sitting room / kitchen and en-suite bedroom accessed via its own external staircase – further internal stairs connect with the rear entrance hall to the main house.

Interesting back-to-back fireplaces separate the drawing and dining rooms which are set to one side of the entrance hall with the kitchen on the other. The first floor has three bedrooms, one en-suite, and a family bathroom with separate cloakrooms on the ground and first floors. There is also an outbuilding across the driveway with potential to create a further annexe or separate home, subject to consents.
