Full description

Situated close to Petersfield town centre, Holly Cottage is a charming, detached two-bedroom house built in circa 1887.

The front door is accessed via a gate, giving the property a private, secluded feel and the accommodation is arranged over two floors. From the entrance hall, there is a good-sized sitting room which overlooks the front of the property and provides a comfortable, well-lit space in which to relax and socialise. The kitchen/dining room is another generously sized space, with a tiled floor, fitted kitchen units and plenty of space for formal dining. To the rear is a conservatory that provides access to the garden and, although currently used for storage, could become a sun-room or a garden room to make the best of the warmer weather.

Rising to the first floor, there is a good-sized double bedroom and a single bedroom. The dual-aspect principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes while the second bedroom benefits from a built-in cupboard. Both rooms share the family bathroom. A wooden staircase takes you to the second floor where the loft has been fully boarded and had Velux windows and electricity installed to create a double loft room, providing useful storage space.

Outside, there is a courtyard garden with planted borders and plenty of space to entertain on summer evenings. The single garage, which fronts the road, can be accessed from the garden via a personal door.

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.
