Greengate Farmhouse, believed to date back to the early 1800’s and last on the market over 40 years ago is a two storey, coursed stone and tiled roof, L-shaped family home. The house itself boasts a wealth of character throughout, the ground floor of which is flooded with natural light none more so than in the generous entrance hallway with a door leading out to the conservatory which provides a beautiful view of the rear garden. There is a fully fitted ‘cottage style’ kitchen with breakfast bar separating itself from the dining area, a utility room, guest wc and door out to the rear garden. There are two/three reception rooms, the third was being used as a twin bedroom. The main drawing room has a beautiful vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and an open fireplace, a striking feature of the room. There are two/three ground floor bedrooms, two of which are also vaulted with exposed beams adding real character to this section of the house. The ground floor bedrooms are served by a well appointed shower room, as are the three further bedrooms found on the first floor.
Lying within the South Downs National Park, the village is of ancient origin. The most famous resident of Lurgashall was Alfred, Lord Tennyson, who lived at Aldworth House. In many ways the archetypal English village; Lurgashall, with its ancient parish church, is centred around a cricket green in front of the Noah’s Ark village pub, a former brew house and bakery that can trace its origins back to the 16th century. A village shop and Post Office on the green and another at Northchapel provide for daily needs, whilst a wider range of shopping is available at Midhurst, Petworth or Haslemere. Although relatively rural in nature, the area is well served by road and rail connections. The A286 and A283 provide the north-south routes to local destinations, whilst the A3 provides a fast and direct route to London, whilst connecting with the M25 for the main airports and the national motorway network, as well as the M27 in the south. At Haslemere station, there is a fast and frequent service between Portsmouth and London (Waterloo), with journey times to London of around 55 minutes. There is a good selection of schools in the area, including The Royal School, Highfield, St Ives, Amesbury, King Edward’s, Prior’s Field, Charterhouse, Haslemere Heights, St Margaret’s, Churcher’s College, St Edmund’s, Seaford College and Westbourne House. Recreational opportunities within reach include golf at a number of local clubs, including Cowdray Park, which is also a major centre for polo. The Goodwood estate offers horse and motor racing, a golf and leisure club and flying from the airfield there. There is sailing at Chichester Harbour. In addition, the surrounding, magnificent countryside offers excellent walking, cycling and riding.
The approximate 1.1 acre plot, triangular in shape, the apex of which to the front of the house provides ample off road parking for several vehicles and faces North towards Lurgashall Green, the cricket pitch and the ever popular Noah’s Ark pub beyond. The rear of the house with generous South facing garden also has a cottage to one side which has been recently modernised to create very well appointed two storey studio/
living accommodation with it’s own garage. Other outbuildings include a generous workshop with its own kitchen area and a separate office. There is also an impressive double height barn with eaves storage and ample motor car or boat storage.
