Full description

Buckmore Cottage is a charming and individual detached family residence dating back to 1898 with later additions in the 1960's and 1970's. The house was originally the gardener's cottage for Buckmore House and offers an exciting opportunity to create a fantastic home. If you are looking for a spacious family home with a large garden, far-reaching countryside views, and within easy distance to the train station this is the home for you.

The accommodation is approached through a welcoming reception hall/dining room with wooden flooring and large window enjoying the views. The delightful sitting room has a log burning stove and Bi-fold doors out to a raised terrace overlooking the south facing garden. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of contemporary units, space for appliances and a walk in larder. There is a delightful snug/family room off the kitchen and a separate study with built in furniture. A cloakroom and useful boot room complete the ground floor. On the first floor there are five bedrooms, a family bathroom with shower cubicle and separate cloakroom. The principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and enjoys views towards Butser Hill.

Externally the house is approached over a gravel driveway with plenty of off-road parking together with a double garage with power and light. The delightful south facing garden to the rear is mainly laid to lawn with plentiful shrubs, and mature trees. The raised decked area, which looks over the garden and rural views beyond, makes an ideal spot for outside dining. There is also a useful timber shed next to the garage.



The property is ideally located close to both the town centre and mainline railway station. Petersfield offers a comprehensive range of shops including high street stores and independent retailers, together with a twice weekly market held in The Square. There are excellent schools in the vicinity including Bedales School, Churcher's College and Ditcham Park School. The local countryside offers many rural pursuits, footpaths and bridleways and lies within the boundary of the South Downs National Park.

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.

One of the major attractions for families is the choice of world-class schools – The Petersfield School is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted and Bohunt School at nearby Liphook is one of the top performing state schools in the country. In the private sector, Churcher’s College and Bedales are located in the town, while Ditcham Park School is just to the southeast.

We have cosmopolitan range of shops, restaurants and cafés, with most major retailers represented. The Petersfield Market is held twice a week in The Square and a Hampshire Farmer’s Market is held on the first Sunday of every month. We also have many sports facilities, including two golf clubs, the Taro Leisure Centre and the Petersfield Open Air Swimming Pool, which, despite being open to the elements, is always heated to an average of 27 degrees.

But what really sets Petersfield apart is the beautiful countryside and its pretty villages. These include Selborne with its post office, primary school and choice of two pubs, Steep Village, which sits on wooded slopes known as The Hangers and was once home to Sir Alec Guinness, Buriton Village, which sits between Petersfield and the Queen Elizabeth Country Park and Rogate and Rake to the east within in the Rother Valley.
