Full description

Lavender cottage is a beautiful four bedroom cottage which boasts a blend of timeless elegance and modern comfort.

Leading up the steps and heading through the front door you are greeted by a welcoming entrance hall, which leads you into the cleverly arranged downstairs space. To your left you have the warm kitchen/dining space; boasting a brick enclosed Rangemaster, and barn style door which opens out to your first outside area - the courtyard with view over the neighbouring paddock. To your right you are drawn to a crackling log burner in the heart of the home, and directly in front is a conveniently placed utility, which benefits from a downstairs WC and back door, leading into the rear garden.

Rising to the first floor you are presented with four well-proportioned bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study. In-keeping with the rest of the home, all four bedrooms are beautifully decorated and in immaculate condition. With a large bathroom, accommodation for family and guests alike is more than catered for. The primary bedroom benefits from a charming en suite as well as a Juliet balcony, where you can enjoy the panoramic views morning, noon and night.

Leading up the garden stairs from the patio courtyard, you are greeted by a beautifully landscaped garden that’s mainly laid to lawn; with mature shrubbery sprinkled throughout. To your left you have a decked seating area, ideal for alfresco dining while overlooking neighbouring fields. Venturing further into the garden, you will find raised vegetable patches, spacious garden sheds and a heated, electric greenhouse. With the front facing East and rear facing West, whether you’re standing at the balcony or dining on the deck, you get the sun all day.

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.
