A large and very attractive Victorian semi-detached house, which has been imaginatively and sympathetically extended by the present owners to provide flexible family accommodation.
The positioning of 10 Spring Lane and its attached neighbour means visually neither property are aware of each other and their respective gardens run away from the building on opposite sides, giving both properties seclusion.
Set in a charming location within the heart of the village in a peaceful lane, amidst a scattering of other period properties. Aston Upthorpe has a thriving village community with nearby village hall and recreation ground.
The village is one of the most sought after of the Downland villages and it is very unusual for a property of this age and quality to come onto the open market. Dudley Singleton and Daughter sold this property to the present owner some 27 years ago.
Spring Lane is within easy walking distance to the local garage, the Sweet Olive gastro-pub which serves splendid French food, good beer and wine. The property enjoys the south-westerly sun with a large patio for summer dining and entertaining, overlooking and bounded by a wild flower meadow. There is car parking for a number of cars within a large gravel driveway area and there is room to construct a garage if so required, subject to local authority planning permission.
