Rushes House is a delightful detached period property, dating back to 1893, with brick and flint elevations. Having been in same ownership for last 38 years, the property is now in need of complete modernisation and offers a wonderful opportunity to create a fabulous home, in the centre of Petersfield. The property retains some original features along with fireplaces in most of the rooms.
The spacious accommodation comprises an entrance hall with three reception rooms, kitchen, rear lobby with doors out to the courtyard area. There is also a workshop/ground floor studio with separate cloakroom and a cellar. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate cloakroom. Steps lead down to a large studio room, which could be another bedroom suite or office.
A five bar gate opens onto the driveway which provides off road parking for several vehicles along with a double length garage and two carports. The rear garden lies to the side of the house, being mainly laid to lawn to mature trees, shrub borders and fully enclosed by a flint wall to one side and fencing to the other. The garden is set into different areas along with a large pond and various sheds.
The market town of Petersfield offers a comprehensive range of shopping, and leisure, with a range of shops, cafes and bars. There are a number of excellent schools located in the town, including The Petersfield School, Churcher's College and Bedales. Petersfield is within the boundary of The South Downs National Park and is surrounded by stunning countryside, yet the town also boasts a mainline railway station on the Portsmouth to London Waterloo line, with the fastest trains to the capital taking around an hour.

Petersfield often features on lists of the best places to live and work and was recently voted one of the top 10 most desirable market towns in England; The Guardian went so far as to describe Petersfield as ‘a commuter’s Nirvana, the urban equivalent of a foot rub and a G&T’.We have a delightful choice of properties in the area, from beautiful character cottages, some dating back 500 years, to coach house style homes and large rural retreats to modern family homes. There’s also a thriving rental market here as the convenient location, attractive setting and abundant facilities make this an excellent base for those working in the wider area or simply wanting a perfect place to raise a family.
