An attractive, un-listed village house set in gardens of approx 1.5 acres
South Lodge is an attractive and valuably unlisted family house in an ideal village location. There is a fantastic village shop a little further down the lane, a thriving local community, and wonderful surrounding countryside. The house has been stylishly decorated in neutral tones and has plenty of natural light and spacious, well-proportioned rooms. There is a fabulous kitchen/dining/living space that runs along the length of the house with several large windows and french doors that overlook the terrace and garden. This is a wonderful living space that fits exactly with today's modern lifestyle. The reception hall has a central staircase and galleried landing above, and leads through to the charming drawing room, which in turn opens into the kitchen/living/dining room creating a fabulous entertaining area. Also on the ground floor there is a useful utility room, garden room and study. Upstairs there is a wonderful master bedroom suite with a very generous bathroom and dressing area. There are also three further double bedrooms and two additional good sized bathrooms.
The south-facing gardens are a wonderful surprise, being bigger than one might expect in a village location, and surrounded by mature trees and hedges giving a great feeling of privacy and seclusion. The sweeping main lawn is edged with mature flower borders and a variety of shrubs and trees. There is a wide terrace running along the rear of the house which provides a fantastic outdoor eating and entertaining area with views down the garden.
South Lodge is situated in the sought-after village of Shalbourne, which offers excellent local facilities including a primary school, shop/ post office, pub, and tennis and cricket clubs. There are wonderful walks accessed directly from the village, across the surrounding farmland and up onto the Ridgeway trail, and the countryside is also hugely popular for horse riding. In nearby Hungerford there is a good choice of shops and supermarkets as well as a doctors' surgery and dentist, and there is a direct train service into London Paddington. Newbury and Marlborough provide a wider range of shopping and local facilities, and between them cater for most other day-to-day needs. Road and rail communications are very good, with easy access to the M4 (J14) and A34, providing fast links to London, Heathrow Airport, and the West Country. Trains from Hungerford go directly into London Paddington and Whitchurch and Andover stations offer an alternative commute into London Waterloo. There is an excellent choice of highly regarded schools in the area including Marlborough College, Dauntsey's, Downe House, St John's Marlborough, St Francis Pewsey, and Shalbourne and Inkpen primary schools. The Dauntsey's school bus goes via Shalbourne in the morning and evening to pick up and drop off if required.
From Hungerford follow the A338 towards Salisbury and after approximately 4 miles take the left turn signposted to Shalbourne. Follow the road down the hill into the village, pass the left turning to Ham, and the entrance to the property will be found after a short distance on the left hand side, just before the sharp right hand bend.Read all
