A rare opportunity to own a landmark detached Georgian home in the heart of Petersfield town, Africa House offers generous family accommodation. Grade II listed and oozing character, with many original features, this home enjoys a large cellar, two generously proportioned reception rooms, a sun room, larder, utility room, cloakroom, whilst upstairs there are four bedrooms all doubles, with the principal two bedrooms being extremely substantial, a bathroom and a separate WC. A particular feature of this home is the quite exceptional bespoke Johnny Grey designer kitchen, a hand built masterpiece which curves elegantly around the kitchen area. Outside there is a fully wall enclosed and private garden, with a magnificent magnolia tree and other mature shrubs and laid mainly to lawn. This in turn leads to a tandem double garage. It is also possible to park in front of the garage. Africa House is located in the centre of the town, with many shops, restaurants and other facilities quite literally on the doorstep and is just a few minutes walk from the mainline railway station. Currently the home of a local artist, this unique family home is a must see. Contact us now to arrange your viewing.

Africa House is located in a most convenient position within walking distance of The Heath, lake and town centre. The market town of Petersfield has a comprehensive range of shopping, sporting and leisure facilities and there is a main line railway station a few minutes walk from the property, providing a service from Portsmouth to London Waterloo. Schooling in the area is of the highest calibre including Bedales School, Churcher's College and Ditcham Park School all close-by. The popular market town of Petersfield lies within the South Downs National Park and is surrounded by fine countryside offering the opportunity for many rural pursuits.
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.
