Originally dating from the 1950's this excellent family house has been extensively and comprehensively extended and refurbished by the present owners, including CAT5 wiring, and substantial extension between 2005 and 2008. The accommodation is bright, airy and spacious with a perfect balance of formal and less formal living rooms. Log burning stoves in the sitting room and family room add to the atmosphere and compliment the underfloor heating running through the ground floor. The kitchen/dining room is a real family hub to the house. In addition there is a day room/library, a study, a guest cloakroom, and a very large utility/boot room, to complete the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs there are 4 spacious bedrooms on the first floor with 2 bathrooms (1 ensuite), and on the second floor, the master bedroom suite and further sixth bedroom, also with an ensuite shower room.
Integral to the house, and with a door leading directly to the boot room, there is a large double garage. From here, a staircase leads up to a very substantial loft room and further storage room, which have great potential and provision for further accommodation subject to planning consent.
The property is located on the West Sussex/Hampshire border within the South Downs National Park. Facilities are available in the village of Liss within about 1 mile, including a rail station on the Portsmouth/Waterloo main line. The market town of Petersfield is within about 4.5 miles to the south and Liphook about 4.5 miles to the north both also with main line stations. There is an excellent choice of both state and private schools in the vicinity including Churchers College, Bedales and Bohunt Secondary School.
For walkers, runners, riders and cyclists, the area is renown for the fine, accessible countryside close at hand, including much under the ownership of The National Trust or within The South Downs National Park. There is nearby access to the recently improved A3 with a greatly improved journey times to Guildford, London and beyond, and the south coast.
The house is approached over a long private drive passing beneath lovely cherry trees and alongside the hard tennis court. The house is situated perfectly within its beautiful parkland grounds, stocked with many specimen trees, and there is a large paved south/west facing terrace adjacent to the rear of the house and accessed from the principal living rooms. Wooded boundaries provide a high degree of privacy and seclusion. In all the gardens and grounds extend to just over 3 acres.
