A beautifully presented Grade II listed house with separate barn, on the edge of this popular Sussex village.
THE PROPERTY Yew Tree House is a beautifully presented Grade II listed former farmhouse, dating we believe from the 18th Century, in an attractive setting on the edge of this ever-popular village. Our clients have carefully modernised the property in the last few years, cleverly blending a contemporary twist to the period feel of the house. The rooms are well proportioned and give a light and airy feel. Outside there is a Barn currently used as a studio, but ideal for people wanting to work from home. The house sits in beautifully designed gardens with views over open countryside. This is one that has to be viewed to be truly appreciated.
OUTSIDE The garden has been professionally designed by the owners and is a real delight. To the front there is a pretty formal garden laid to lawn bounded by herbaceous and shrub borders. A path leads round to a series of interconnected spaces forming the main gardens. Adjacent to the kitchen and the rear of the house there is a large terrace with the barn beyond together with a formal pool and large open areas of lawn, further herbaceous and shrub borders and a number of mature trees including two rather fine yews. There are expansive views over open countryside from much of the house and garden.
LOCATION Rogate is a highly sought after village about 4 miles from Petersfield with a thriving primary school, village shop and church. Petersfield has a comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose and a mainline station with frequent train services to London Waterloo in just over an hour. The area is particularly blessed with an excellent range of schools including Bedales, Churcher's College, Ditcham Park and in the state sector TPS and Bohunt. The A3 at Petersfield provides good regional transport links to the M25 and beyond and the larger centres of Winchester, Guildford and Chichester are all within reasonable driving distance, as are the harbours and creeks of the South Coast. There are a number of good footpaths and bridleways in the surrounding area including the South Downs Way, the Serpent Trail and Sussex Border Path.
