Occupying a generous, prominent plot in this outstanding, private development is 26 Batchelor Way. This glorious home was recently constructed by Charles Church Homes in 2017. The exclusive attractive development is ideally situated a short distance from Downton village centre yet backs onto open countryside and farmland. The homes have been built and finished to exacting standards throughout.
26 Batchelor Way has been internally and externally appointed by the current sellers and has been upgraded throughout and is therefore immaculately presented, offering spacious lateral accommodation across the ground and first floor.
Upon entering the home the size and quality is immediately apparent. The generous and ultimately versatile accommodation comprises a welcoming entrance hall that gives way to all principal reception rooms. A room of particular note is the spectacular ‘heart of the home’ kitchen/dining/family room which is filled with an abundance of light from the double bi-folding doors that leads out to the wrap around gardens. This modern space offers ultimate flexibility in how it can be used and is a superb entertaining, sociable room. The kitchen itself is fitted with the highest quality appliances and stylish units as well as an integrated dishwasher under solid granite work surfaces. There is a sizeable formal sitting room to the front with a warming feature fireplace. In addition there is a formal dining room, study or play room. Making up the remainder of the ground floor accommodation is a modern cloakroom and useful utility room.
On the first floor there are five generous double bedrooms all in perfect decorative order and four of which have built in storage. The master bedroom has a luxury en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom also has a stylish en-suite shower room. The remaining bedrooms are serviced by a beautifully presented family bathroom.
A huge amount of care and attention to quality of fixtures, fittings and maintenance has been lavished on this home. The property benefits from the remainder of its NHBC guarantee, approximately 8 years.
26 Batchelor Way stands in the heart of Downton which is a thriving and long-standing community with a strong sense of identity. There are good local facilities in the village which include shops, doctors, dentist, tennis club, the Borough Cafe', churches, schools, and public houses, as well as the famous Cuckoo Fair held each May.
Communication links are excellent, with strong rail links to London Waterloo via Salisbury (around 83 minutes) or Southampton Airport Parkway (68 minutes). There is easy access to the main regional centres of Salisbury and the B3078 gives access to the M27 and thus opening up Southampton and the M3 corridor. The wide ranging opportunities of the New Forest National Park are only two miles from the village.
There is first class schooling in the village with its own primary (ofsted Outstanding) and secondary school, indeed the primary school has in recent years been recommended by Tatler as one of the top ten best schools in the UK. There are also nearby independent preparatory schools such as Forres Sandle Manor, Chafyn Grove, Godolphin, the Salisbury Cathedral School and Leaden Hall. At senior level there is Canford, Godolphin, Winchester College, St Swithun's, Sherborne, Bryanston and Clayesmore. In the state sector, Salisbury has retained the grammar school model and these score very highly in the national league tables.
To the front of the home there is a decorative garden set behind attractive railings. To the side there is a sizeable double driveway with ample room to park several vehicles. Beyond is the double garage that has electric up and over remote controlled doors, power, light and storage above.
The rear garden has been beautifully landscaped and offers a wonderful degree of privacy. An expansive paved terrace wraps around the rear of the home providing ample space for outdoor entertaining and dining. Beyond is a mature lawn with specimen trees lining the walled boundary. There is a generous storage shed, outside power, lighting and water.
The home has air conditioning units fitted in the ktichen/ dining/ family room and two upstairs bedrooms.
