A gorgeous, substantial, Grade II listed, detached farmhouse that is divided architecturally into two distinct periods, Elizabethan and Georgian. The property has been sympathetically updated by the present owners whilst retaining the character features synonymous of its eras including a wealth of exposed beams and Inglenook fireplaces in the original section and impressive high ceilings with mouldings and sash windows in the more recent portion of the house. The gardens and grounds are also a notable feature of the property amounting in all to approximately 1.7 acres and are enclosed by flint walls on three sides. The sweeping driveway provides the approach to the farmhouse and its numerous useful outbuildings that include a large detached timber garage capable of accommodating 9 cars, or alternatively this could be used as a home office or studio.
From Petersfield head south on the A3(M) in the direction of Portsmouth. Having past the exit to the Queen Elizabeth Country Park take the next exit signposted to Clanfield and Butser Ancient Farm. Continue back over the A3(M) and at the roundabout take the first exit. Continue along this road, passing Green Lane on the left, until you reach the village itself. Immediately before the Rising Sun Public House turn right into North Lane and as you exit the village the property is located on the left hand side.
The property is peacefully situated on the fringes of the popular village of Clanfield and enjoys a delightful rural feeling of being in the countryside without being isolated. The village amenities, including a public house, general convenience store, church, village hall and takeaway restaurant can be found within a 1/4 mile of the house. More substantial shopping and amenities can be found in Petersfield to the north or Portsmouth to the south. For commuters, the railway station in Petersfield provides a service to London/Waterloo (approximately one hour) and the recently opened tunnel at Hindhead now provides congestion free travel north along the A3 to Guildford and London. Naturally, being nestled at the foot of the South Downs and its National Park the surrounding countryside provides excellent country pursuits including walking and riding. Further leisure pursuits in the area include golf available at Petersfield and Waterlooville, horse and motor racing at Goodwood, Polo at Cowdray Park and sailing along the South Coast.
