Full description

White Lodge is a wonderful period home situated in an enviable position with magnificent panoramic views over the rolling Hampshire countryside and located within the South Downs. The house is set in beautifully maintained gardens and offers an appealing opportunity to purchase this charming home. Dating back over 80 years the property has an abundance of character features including fireplaces, exposed beams, and picture rails.

From the welcoming entrance porch, you will find the generous sitting room to one side and the delightful dining room/ground floor bedroom to the other. The kitchen/breakfast room has an AGA, central island and enjoys plenty of natural light from the attractive roof lantern window, as well as French doors out to the terrace. The sunny conservatory is located off the kitchen and overlooks the gardens. A cloakroom and useful storage cupboard complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and generous bathroom suite.

Externally the house is approached via block paved driveway which provides parking for several vehicles and leads to the detached double garage with workshop. The gardens and grounds to the property are delightful, with areas of lawn, a wealth of herbaceous shrubs, flowers beds, trees, and hedging. The charming terrace adjoins the rear of the house and makes an ideal spot for al fresco dining with family and friends alike. A large pond sits to the front of the house. There is also a vegetable garden, greenhouse, large timber shed and a further three useful outbuildings. The delightful summer house is set on a raised deck area to enjoy the stunning views and sunsets.

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.
