Originally part of the North Farm Estate, the North Barn was converted and listed in 1986 and now presents an elegant home in a rural location and within reach of a lively village community. The property has retained much of its original character and boasts exposed beams and a double fireplace. This is an elegant and interesting property that has a lot to offer either as a family home or even as a holiday let.
Entering through the front door, you find yourself in a superb dual aspect sitting / dining room. This is a large open plan space, divided by a double fireplace which is occupied on one side by a wood burning stove. Steps to the left take you up to a study / further storage space set over the garage. The hallway leads to the kitchen which boasts a stone-tiled floor and bespoke handmade cabinets plus a fan-assisted oven to complement the 2-oven Rayburn which provides the property with oil fired central heating. Stairs from the sitting room rise to the first floor which comprises a principal double bedroom which overlooks the front of the house and the field beyond and benefits from an en suite shower room and built-in storage plus two further double bedrooms and one single bedroom that share the family bathroom.
North Barn is approached by a driveway from North Street and leads to a double garage and parking for several cars. The gate opens into an enclosed private garden that leads you to the front of the house. For those interested in rural heritage, there is also a Shepherd¿s hut, complete with electric power points and a wood burning stove, to provide summer entertainment space or even guest accommodation.

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.
