An attached Listed character home with wonderful feeling of space inside and outside in an unspoilt rural hamlet yet within easy reach of Petersfield
THE PROPERTY 3 Trinity Barns is a converted Grade II Listed former farm building and now forms part of a small courtyard community of four properties in a rural hamlet. The house is attached but has been cleverly planned to retain its own privacy, unique identity and relationship with the beautifully landscaped garden and land beyond. Galleried and vaulted rooms create a feeling of space with three log burning stoves adding to the interior charm. The large open plan kitchen/dining room provides a wonderful practical living area, at the heart of the house, with excellent working space and a programmable electric AGA. Two sets of double doors afford an easy relationship with the garden and outside entertaining space. Four bedrooms are at ground floor level with two en suite shower rooms (one with bath) together with a delightful vaulted family room.
Upstairs the spacious vaulted drawing room with fully exposed timber frame and handy study area has a lovely aspect overlooking the garden. The main bedroom is also vaulted with a large walk-in wardrobe, an en suite bathroom and has outstanding views over the garden and beyond to the South Downs. Overall a brilliant family home which also lends itself effortlessly to entertaining both inside and out.
OUTSIDE A well established landscaped garden provides privacy, seasonal colour and is partly walled. The large level rear lawn is bounded by well stocked herbaceous borders, with several brick and paved areas linking the back of the house to a wonderful open sided garden barn with a clay pizza oven, power, lighting and log burning stove. There is a useful garden store together with a separate log store and greenhouse. Offset is a more natural sunken corner garden and vegetable patch with a further practical area for composting, storage and the LPG tank. A gate leads to the natural wildlife field of about 1.34 acres (0.54ha) planted with a mixture of deciduous and fruit trees, areas of long grass and a pond. There is also separate vehicular access to the field from the village lane. In all the garden and grounds are about 2 acres (0.81 ha).
To the front is a more open plan area with communal lawns and a turning circle with ample parking and access to the double garage.
LOCATION Weston is refreshingly unspoilt and the epitome of the small English hamlet, nestling at the foot of The Downs in the heart of the South Downs National Park set on a meandering no through country lane. A country stroll across the extensive range of local footpaths gives access to a wide variety of farmland walks, including the South Downs Way. The quiet network of local lanes and bridleways also provides miles of riding and cycling opportunities with riding stables nearby.
Whilst in a rural setting the barn is within five minutes' drive of Petersfield with its comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose, a mainline station with train services to London Waterloo and its excellent range of schools, including local primary schools and TPS in the state sector, Bedales, Ditcham Park and Churcher's College in the private sector. The A272 links Petersfield to Winchester and Midhurst and the A3 provides good regional transport links to the M25, M27 and beyond. The larger centres of Portsmouth, Guildford and Chichester are all within reasonable driving distance, as are the harbours and creeks of the South Coast.
