Full description

Gardners Farm House is a beautiful Grade II listed family home with 16th century origins situated in an elevated rural position. The property boasts a wealth of character throughout with exposed beams and impressive fireplaces. The kitchen has been refitted in recent years and along with the dining and sitting rooms, benefits from the fabulous views over neighbouring fields. The study at the rear is a cosy space with fitted bookshelves and the adjoining conservatory has doors opening onto a private rear terrace ideal for al fresco dining. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings creating a feeling of space and a fourth single bedroom and family bathroom. There is also additional accommodation above the garage providing a versatile space for guests, family or home working which has its own deck and attractive rural outlook.

The property is approached via a sweeping driveway which leads up to a large turning and parking circle outside the front door. Gardners Farm House is largely situated in the centre of its gardens which are mainly laid to lawn for ease of maintenance with cottage garden plants, shrubs and herbs. There are also some lovely mature trees including oak and yew. A beech hedge provides shelter to the rear of the house where there is a paved terrace, beyond which are fruit trees and a vegetable garden. To the south and west are fenced areas of paddocks which provide around 2 acres of grazing as well as a field shelter.

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.
