Full description

The Old Cottage offers an exciting opportunity to purchase a charming Grade II listed period home right in the centre of South Harting, positioned at the foot of North Lane and only a short walk to The White Hart pub. The house dates back to the 17th Century with latter additions in the 18th Century and is being offered to the market with no onward chain.

Approached via a footpath that leads through the front garden, you enter the front door and find yourself in the family room, to your right is a cosy sitting room with a large kitchen/dining room at the rear. A utility room and downstairs WC complete the ground floor. On the first floor there is a generous principal bedroom with en suite bath/shower room, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside of the property there is a large West-facing private garden that also has a detached outbuilding and could be a haven for keen gardeners.

Located within the delightful village of South Harting in the South Downs National Park. South Harting is a thriving community with a village shop, post office, public house, primary school and two churches. The High Street is lined with elegant Georgian buildings and is close to the National Trust property of Uppark House and Harting Down with spectacular views of the South Downs. More comprehensive shopping, leisure and schooling opportunities are available at nearby Petersfield, Midhurst or the Cathedral city of Chichester. Petersfield has a mainline railway station on the Portsmouth to London Waterloo line, with the capital just an hour away by train. There is a regular bus service connecting the village with Petersfield.

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.
