This delightful Grade II Listed detached thatched cottage is situated within the charming village of Chalton, nestled in the South Downs. The property dates back over 500 years and retains many period features. This is the first time Glebe Cottage has been on the market in the last 50 years. There are stunning views from the gardens towards Chalton Mill and the South Downs.
From the welcoming entrance hall there is a generous sitting room with an attractive inglenook fireplace and beamed ceiling. The dining room has a log burning stove and leads onto the kitchen/breakfast room. There is conservatory to the side of the kitchen which enjoys fine views over the garden. A door leads from the sitting room into an additional ground floor bedroom and en suite shower room, along with a separate entrance from the driveway. A shower room completes the ground floor. On the second floor there are two double bedrooms along with a separate cloakroom.
Above the double garage there is a studio/annexe which consists of a bedroom/sitting room, kitchenette and bathroom. This would make an ideal self catering holiday let or for extended family use.
The cottage is approached via a driveway with parking for a number of vehicles, and leads to the detached double garage. The attractive rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with various mature trees, shrub borders and enjoys fabulous views towards the countryside.
Glebe Cottage is set in heart of the popular Hampshire village of Chalton, which has a parish church and a 16th century public house The Red Lion which is believed to be the oldest in Hampshire. The nearby Queen Elizabeth Country Park is a large park situated on the South Downs and contains 1,400 acres of open access woodland and downland within an area of outstanding natural beauty. The nearby market town of Petersfield is located to the north and offers a comprehensive range of shops and there are main line railway stations at Petersfield and Havant providing a frequent service to London. There are excellent schools in the vicinity for all ages. The property lies within the boundary of the South Downs National Park.

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.
