An attractive period cottage in a lovely rural setting
THE PROPERTY Barnetside Farm is an attractive well proportioned cottage dating we understand from the first half of the 19th Century with brick and flint elevations under a tiled roof. The property is very well presented and offers surprisingly light and spacious rooms including three bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room on the first floor, whilst on the ground floor the is a good sized sitting room with study off and a large kitchen/dining room with Rayburn range. There is a large area of parking provided together with a private garden with includes an area of decking with a hot tub. An early appointment to view is strongly recommended.
OUTSIDE To the front and side of the cottage there is a good sized parking area and then a path leads around to the garden which is well enclosed and is made up of a terrace by the side of the house leading to lawns and then to the rear there is an area of decking with the hot tub and beyond this a storage area where the oil tank and gas for the range are located.
LOCATION Froxfield is more a collection of hamlets rather than one village, with High Cross at its centre which is 2.1 miles from the house and has a village school and shop. There are also two pubs nearby, these being The White Horse with easy walking distance and The Trooper. Petersfield with its comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose and a mainline station with train services to London Waterloo in around an hour is 4.2 miles away, and is particularly blessed with an excellent range of schools including Bedales, Churcher's College and Ditcham Park. The A3 at Petersfield provides good transport links to the M25 and beyond and the regional centres of Winchester, Guildford and Chichester are all within reasonable driving distance, as are the harbours and creeks of the South Coast. The property sits in the heart of the South Downs National Park with extensive recreational and leisure activities and much of the surrounding countryside is crisscrossed by footpaths and bridleways including the South Downs Way and Hanger Way nearby.
