Gatcombe House is an elegant Victorian home situated on Heath Road, within walking distance of both the town centre and the railway station. The house is set back from the road, screened by a graceful tree and shrubs which give it a wonderful sense of privacy. Entering through the front door, there is a welcoming feeling as you step into the hall. The ground floor accommodation flows very well throughout and consists of a comfortable, dual-aspect living room which enjoys natural light throughout the day while also boasting an original marble fireplace, now housing a wood burner. Across the hallway is a generous family room/study with a bay window overlooking the front of the property. The kitchen is bright and airy thanks to the French doors that give immediate access onto the patio area. The current owners have planning permission for a six metre rear extension to create an orangery and redevelop the kitchen. A sizeable utility room providing ample storage space and a pet grooming room completes the ground floor. Climbing the stairs to the first floor, you will find three large double bedrooms. The delightful main bedroom overlooks the garden and steps lead down to an en suite shower room and separate WC. The remaining two double bedrooms share the family bathroom. Rising to the second floor there are three further rooms, all nicely proportioned. Two are currently used as bedrooms while the third room provides a fantastic office space away from the main run of the house. Each of these rooms benefits from skylights that give views down into the garden and across the rooftops of the house.

Why live in Petersfield?
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.
