There is plenty of space to create a sunny spot for outside dining and entertaining.
The village of Soberton is situated within the highly sought after Meon Valley with its historical disused Meon Valley railway and is a beautiful bridlepath for walks and rides. The area surrounding the village is predominantly rural with some beautiful scenery to be enjoyed and within the South Downs National Park. For day to day amenities there is a local shop in Droxford (1 mile). More comprehensive amenities can be found in the market towns of Bishops Waltham, Wickham and Petersfield to the north east. Petersfield has a mainline railway station on the Portsmouth to London Waterloo line with trains to the capital taking just over an hour. The property is well placed for excellent schools both in the private and public sector, including Bedales, Chuchers College, Ditcham Park and The Petersfield School in Petersfield and Winchester College, St Swithuns and Peter Symons College in Winchester.
A three bedroom detached period house
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.
