Full description

Coach House is a beautiful, detached family home located in the heart of the highly sought-after village of South Harting, nestled within the South Downs National Park. The property was once the Coach & Horses pub that closed in 1994. Nowadays Coach House resides as a fabulous four-bedroom family home with an abundance of living space and offers flexible accommodation.

Approached via a set of stone steps, you enter the front door above the road and find yourself in a welcoming entrance hall. The ground floor comprises; a 27ft drawing room with an impressive high ceiling, cosy family room/snug, large dining room perfect for entertaining, study, a 25ft kitchen/breakfast room, spacious and bright conservatory, and a utility with downstairs bathroom. There are also two very generous storage areas at the rear, accessed from the conservatory. As you climb the stairs to the first floor, you¿ll find four well-proportioned double bedrooms that all benefit from fitted wardrobes and a family bath/shower room.

Outside, there is charming, landscaped South-facing private garden with a lovely patio, flanked by an attractive stone wall that borders the church yard. At the end of the garden, you can access the store room that is directly above the double garage; this could offer potential to further extend or convert subject to the necessary consents.

More comprehensive shopping, leisure and schooling opportunities are available at nearby Petersfield, Midhurst or the Cathedral city of Chichester.

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.
