A rare chance to buy a house in this secluded private estate, in the heart of the South Down National Park
THE PROPERTY Little Durford provides an extremely rare opportunity to buy one of the smaller properties on Durford Wood, the majority being substantial country houses, with all the benefits of being in this highly regarded private estate. We believe the property dates from 1930's and has more recent extensions and it offers extremely flexible accommodation with a master bedroom and two other bedrooms in the main part of the house along with four reception rooms with then to one side of the kitchen area a first floor sitting room, guest suite and fifth bedroom which work very well as part of the house or have the ability to be used as an independent area. The house sits in lovely mature grounds and has great potential to be adapted further or enlarged.
OUTSIDE A Tarmacadam drive leads up to good sized parking area and adjacent to this there is an attached double garage. Next to this there is also a covered storage area with further adjacent store. The house is south facing and overlooks extensive open areas of lawns, with a pond on the southern side. The gardens are stocked with an extensive range of specimen trees and shrubs including acers and rhododendrons and there are also a number of mature trees throughout the garden. The gardens offer a very high degree of privacy and total about 3 acres and there is also a swimming pool.
LOCATION The house sits in the heart of the Durford Wood estate which is a private estate consisting of a number of large detached houses in substantial grounds. The estate is located 3 miles to the north east of the thriving market town of Petersfield which offers a comprehensive range of shopping, sporting and leisure facilities including Waitrose and also has a mainline station with train services to London Waterloo in just over an hour. The A3 is also available at Petersfield providing quick access to both the South Coast, along with Guildford, the M25 and London. Heathrow and Gatwick airports are both within reasonable driving distance. The property lies in the heart of the South Downs National Park and the surrounding countryside is crisscrossed by footpaths and bridleways providing great scope for both riding and walking. There are private areas of woodland owned by the estate which you can also enjoy. There is a good range of educational facilities in the immediate area, including Bedales, Churchers College, and Highfield in the private sector and Bohunt and TPS in the state sector.
