A substantial four bedroom family home with approx. 8.75 acres of water meadows and river frontage set in the Heart of Stockbridge
Copperknobs has been in the same family for four generations and whilst comfortably lived in at present, the house offers enormous potential for refurbishment, extension or rebuilding, subject to the necessary planning permissions.
The property is set well back off the High Street down a long drive and it offers a surprisingly private position with lovely rear views over its own meadowland towards the National Trust owned Stockbridge Common Marsh.
Stockbridge is a highly attractive market town situated between the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury and it offers a good range of shops, local amenities and both primary and secondary schools. There are numerous well known private schools within easy reach whilst the A34 and A303 dual carriageways provide fast links to the M3 and M4 motorways.
The River Test, which runs through the town, is a world renowned chalk stream offering exceptional fishing and the beautiful surrounding countryside provides numerous opportunities for walking, cycling and horse riding.
There is a covenant on the property preventing it from being used for any motor trade or any business allied thereto.
