Full description

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.

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.
