A spacious family home in a lovely rural location with 4 acres of land
THE PROPERTY Seekings is a beautifully presented family house built in 2002 very much in the period style with brick and flint elevations under a tiled roof, and forms part of a small farmyard style development of just three properties in a lovely rural setting in Froxfield. The house offers well proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights with a very flexible layout and of particular note is the drawing room with the partly vaulted ceiling and the four bedrooms all with ensuites.
LOCATION Froxfield is more a collection of hamlets rather than one village, with High Cross at its centre which is 1.3 miles from the house and has a village school and shop. There are also two pubs nearby, these being The White Horse and The Trooper. Petersfield with its comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose and a mainline station with train services to London Waterloo in around an hour is 4 miles away, and is particularly blessed with an excellent range of schools including Bedales, Churcher's College and Ditcham Park. The A3 at Petersfield provides good transport links to the M25 and beyond and 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 crisscrossed by footpaths and bridleways including the South Downs Way and Hanger Way nearby.
OUTSIDE To the front of the house there is a good sized drive with plenty of parking space. To one side is the double garage, whilst the other end of the house there is a covered parking area which also provides access to the rear garden. To the rear of the house there is a large terrace leading to lawns bounded in places by well stocked herbaceous and shrub borders. A gate then leads into a paddock area enclosed by hedging and a further gate leads to the field. The grounds as a whole total about 4 acres. Beyond the field there is an area of woodland which is owned jointly with the two other properties and totals about 1.4 acres.
Services: Mains water and electricity. Oil fired boiler providing hot water and central heating via radiators, private drainage system shared with the two adjacent properties.
