Full description

This charming end of terrace cottage has a wealth of character and could be extended subject to the necessary planning consents. The downstairs accommodation consists of a welcoming entrance porch with tiled flooring, opening into the sitting room which has a solid oak floor with underfloor heating and an attractive open hearth feature fireplace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern units with space for appliances and leads into a double glazed conservatory.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms, a bathroom and separate cloakroom. A balustrade staircase leads from the first floor landing up to a converted loft room with a double glazed window, and an eaves storage cupboard.

To the front of the cottage there is a gravel driveway providing off road parking for several cars. A wooden gate opens into the pretty front garden which is laid mainly to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders and wooden raised vegetable beds. There is also a paved terrace and a path through to the rear garden. This has been paved for ease of maintenance, making an ideal spot for outside dining. A further gate leads out to a recreation area.

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.
