A detached family property understood to have been built in the 1950s and only having been sold once previously, enjoying an enviable elevated position with country views to the rear over lower lying farmland, situated at the end of a track beside a medieval Chantry Chapel (Grade I Listed), formerly the village church that was mainly demolished in the mid 19th Century when the new Victorian church was built. The plot was once the site of a fine period manor house owned by the Pierrepont family who, together with Parliamentarian John Evelyn, have monuments within the Chapel. Tanglewood is a comfortable family dwelling in an attractive and private setting that also offers scope for alteration and extension if required (subject to obtaining the required consents).
The property is situated at the end of a track in the rural village of West Dean, a traditional settlement with an excellent community, quietly situated amidst unspoilt downland countryside benefitting from a church, village hall and railway station within a short walk (with regular services to Salisbury, Romsey, Southampton and beyond - excellent for local commuting and for children having access to schooling). The neighbouring village of West Tytherley has a primary school, post office, shop and public house. Salisbury and Winchester are within easy reach with a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure facilities and excellent educational opportunities. Romsey is within a 20 minute drive and there is also easy access to London, the West Country and the South Coast via the M3, A303 and M27.
