Full description

This wonderful barn conversion is situated in an idyllic rural location and nestled within The South Downs National Park. The property was sympathetically converted and forms part of the original Claypit Farm, which was divided into five properties about 11 years ago. The current owners have carried out extensive improvements which include a German kitchen with Corian work surfaces, a conservatory to the rear, refitted bathroom suites, an Indian sandstone sun terrace and landscaping of the garden.

Upon entering the house you are welcomed by the superb 37ft open-plan kitchen/dining room, leading to the spacious sitting room with a feature fireplace and doors out to the conservatory. The ground floor enjoys underfloor heating along with extensive exposed beams. A study, cloakroom and large storage area complete the ground floor. On the second floor you will find four double bedrooms and a family bathroom suite. The master bedroom benefits from a generous en-suite bath/shower room.

Externally there is a communal courtyard garden to the front with mature shrubs and a pathway leading to the front door. The delightful rear garden has wide paved sun terrace making an ideal spot for al fresco dining and entertaining. The lawn beyond is bordered with flower beds and a vegetable garden. To the far end, a gate gives access to an area of light woodland and a large pond which is communally owned. The property has a detached barn style double garage with power and lighting connected.

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.
