  • Lindum is uniquely situated, in an elevated position with stunning views across the River Test. Sitting in an approx. 0.3 acre plot with mature gardens to the front and rear, the property feels rural and yet benefits from being just two minutes' walk from Stockbridge. The rear garden is mature and private whilst the front garden offers panoramic long distance views across the river to woodland beyond.

Stockbridge lies within the beautiful Test Valley, fabled for its chalk stream trout fishing.
