An exceptional brand new family house enjoying a lovely rural setting and distant views
PROPERTY Ashford House is a stylish, well proportioned and flexible newly built family house, finished to a high specification, situated within an exclusive small development, enjoying a rural setting with distant views to the rear towards Hindhead and the Hogs Back. The property has been thoughtfully designed to maximise the outlook across the garden, separate field/paddock and distant views beyond, whilst carefully combining both traditional and contemporary touches including wood burning stoves, glass balustrading, underfloor heating and a stylish fitted kitchen with island unit. A vaulted entrance lobby with glass balustraded stairs rising to the first floor leads to a generous, light, open plan kitchen/dining/family room with a range of contemporary fitted kitchen units and separate island. Additional ground floor accommodation comprises a separate sitting room with back-to-back woodburning stove, study, playroom, spacious utility/boot room with separate larder and access to an integral double garage. On the first floor, the property offers a master bedroom and separate guest bedroom, both with en suite facilities and enjoying beautiful far reaching distant views to the rear across the neighbouring countryside, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
OUTSIDE Ashford House is approached through electric double gates and an attractive, gravelled shared drive leads to a private parking area and access to a double garage with twin up and over doors. Landscaped borders at the front and a side gate leads to the rear garden which offers a paved, terraced area and formal lawn beyond with attractive post and rail fencing as its boundary. A rear garden gate opens onto a public footpath (see agents' note) and a further double gate across from the rear garden gate provides access to an enclosed separate field/paddock beyond, which boasts a delightful rural aspect also enclosed by post and rail fencing. In all the gardens and field/paddock extend to approximately 1 acre (0.4ha).
LOCATION Froxfield is more a collection of hamlets rather than one village, with High Cross at its centre which is approximately 2.1 miles distant from Ashford House which offers a village school and shop. There are two public houses under a mile away so within easy walking distance and The Trooper Inn and Petersfield with its comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities and mainline station is 4.2 miles away. Petersfield has an excellent range of schools including Bedales, Churcher's College and Ditcham Park and the A3 provides good transport links to the M25 and beyond. 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 criss-crossed by footpaths and bridleways including the South Downs Way and Hanger Way nearby.
