Dating from around 1780, Hipley Farm offers flexible and bright rooms with a good flow throughout. In the heart of the home is a kitchen/breakfast room with a vaulted-ceiling and stone flooring. The fully-fitted kitchen offers a triple Aga, plenty of storage and a walk-in larder. The kitchen is open to a Marston & Langinger conservatory with under floor heating. There are marvellous views across the formal gardens and orchard and also through to the family room which is a comfortable space with log burner set into an exposed brick fireplace. This leads to the dining hall, the original entrance hall to the property, and doors lead to the paved terrace at the rear and formal south-west facing gardens. The far wing of the ground floor offers a very comfortable sitting room with inset wood burner with marble surround with matching marble radiator. Concluding the ground floor accommodation, there is a utility/boot room and a fourth bedroom with en-suite shower room, perfect for guests.
The first floor accommodation offers a sizeable master bedroom suite with a walk-in dressing area with ample wardrobe space behind sliding doors and an en-suite bathroom with separate shower. Two further bedrooms and a bathroom are also on this level.
Hipley is a friendly, rural hamlet, nestled on the edge of the village of Hambledon and the outer edges of the South Downs National Park, close to the Forest of Bere and Hundred Acres. Hambledon offers a good range of facilities including a general store, doctor's surgery, public house, nursery school and highly regarded primary school. The stunning countryside surrounding the property means outdoor pursuits abound with walkers and equestrians being particularly well catered for. A comprehensive range of local amenities can be found in the pretty Georgian centres of Wickham and Bishops Waltham, 4.3 and 6.9 miles away respectively. Both offer an excellent range of independent boutiques and eateries along with banks, post offices, convenience stores and doctor's surgeries. For more comprehensive facilities visit the ancient market town of Petersfield and the cathedral city of Winchester, both offering fast links to London Waterloo (about 1 hour and 1 hour 10mins respectively). Southampton Airport is also easily accessible and caters for both internal and international flights. Access to the A3M is within approximately 6 miles giving good communication routes to Guildford and London to the north and Portsmouth to the south.
Set discreetly away from the road and approached by a walled and gated entry with remotely controllable video and camera security. The gravel driveway leads to the garage and ample parking area in front of the house. A paved terrace to the rear of the house is perfect for outside dining during the day and enjoys a south westerly aspect. It overlooks the formal gardens which are mainly laid to lawn with shrub borders and mature trees leading to a more natural wooded area to the rear of the plot. A stream runs along the formal garden and the house with several bridges to cross to the large pond, fruit orchard and field beyond which is enclosed with post and rail fencing.
