A charming and deceptively spacious family home forming part of a larger country house.
THE PROPERTY The Old Dairy is a deceptively spacious family home forming part of a larger country house that was subdivided in the 1950's making a small community of its own within this wonderful rural village.
The large entrance hall leads to an excellent sitting room with large bay windows overlooking the garden, study/playroom, kitchen/breakfast room and a useful utility room and cloakroom. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, one of which is en suite, and a family bathroom.
A major attraction is the outside space. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a hidden pathway leading through to a shed, workshop and timber store, and on into the copse. This then leads to an orchard area and summerhouse overlooking neighbouring fields, and from there to the paddock with mobile field shelter. There is a gateway from the paddock on to the lane.
LOCATION It is all about being in the peace and quiet of the country, tucked down a lane, yet with neighbouring cottages and houses nearby and in the heart of the South Downs National Park. Froxfield is more a collection of rural hamlets rather than just one village, with High Cross at its centre which has: a village primary school, large Jubilee Hall with sports clubs and a shop (with post office). Petersfield is handy with its comprehensive range of facilities. The extensive network of local lanes provides amazing walks, cycling routes and access to footpaths, ideal for any country/outdoor enthusiasts.
The A3 provides great regional transport links to Guildford and Portsmouth (ferry services). Chichester & Winchester are also within reach. There are well regarded state and private schools within the region, including Bedales and Churchers at Petersfield, where there is also a station with 4 trains an hour to London via the Portsmouth Harbour to Waterloo service.
OUTSIDE To the front of the house is a gravel drive area with a timber garage to one side and parking for several cars. A path leads through the front garden to the front door. Immediately adjacent to the house at the rear is a sunny terraced area, lawn and beyond this a hidden path leads to the workshop, shed and timber store and onto the delightful copse. Beyond the copse there is a summerhouse (with power) with views over open countryside, an orchard area and a gate to the paddock. In all approximately 1.46 acres (0.59 ha).
