Full description

A charming and unique character house that has been skillfully converted from a former Gospel Hall. The hall was built by the Plymouth Brethren who were a conservative evangelical Christian movement whose history can be traced to Dublin, Ireland, in the late 1820's. Holding that the word ekklçsia, "church" refers to people, not a building, they avoided calling their buildings "churches," preferring to use the title "Gospel Hall" to indicate that the gospel was preached and upheld within. They placed little emphasis on their actual buildings, not considering them to be sacred.

The property is located in a truly peaceful rural setting within striking distance of the village pub, shop and country paths that cross the nearby Terwick Common.

The accommodation comprises a sitting room with a wood burning stove and a beamed ceiling opening up into a modern fitted kitchen with room for a breakfast table. The property was extended around 1990 to provide for a further entrance hall, study, utility room and cloakroom. There is also a ground floor bathroom. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom with an en suite shower room. There is plenty of storage provided by a number of cupboards.

Outside is a compact and manageable garden with a patio and a couple of sheds. A great feature of the property is the detached brick built building to the front housing a single garage and useful studio/ home office with a wood burning stove and ladder to a further mezzanine floor with velux window. The building offers potential for a separate annexe if desired.

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.
