ENCHANTING - This unique and characterful Grade II listed cottage designed by Philip Webb is located on the rural fringes of Liphook.
The Clockhouse has been lovingly renovated whilst still keeping its attractive and original features - latched, leaded casement windows, decorative working fireplace, quarry tiles and the jewel in the crown being the turret clock and belfry with a 1905 Gillet & Johnston working clock - the heartbeat of the house. The clock weight takes a week to descend through the stairwell to the ground floor and the belfry affords magnificent 360 degree far reaching views across fields - one of the highest points in the area.
The two gardens are a delight. A herringbone brick path leads to the front door past a 'secret' wild flower garden with a number of productive fruit trees bushes and overhanging vines. Fronting Chiltley Lane, a level area of lawn is bordered by flowerbeds. In all, a most charming and beautifully presented property located just 1/3 mile from the station and Liphook village yet with a delightful rural feel. N.B. The Clockhouse has a single garage, 2 designated parking spaces (not on the title) and a small area of flying freehold.
Approached via a country lane on the edge of Liphook village and surrounded by acres of delightful countryside, much of which can be enjoyed from the belfry tower. Liphook village provides a range of local facilities including a large Sainsburys supermarket and two renowned golf courses. Haslemere is 5 miles away and offers a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities. There are excellent schools locally, both state and private for all ages. Stunning Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and National Trust land are close by for walking enthusiasts to enjoy.
A charming two bedroom Grade II Arts and Crafts cottage forming the central portion of Goldenfields House, incorporating the clock tower with far-reaching views.
