Description:

A detached character home with potential in a secluded country position.

THE PROPERTY Brickfields is a privately positioned detached house set in mature surroundings. The house has a lovely rural location with views from the first floor over surrounding countryside and two fields that are owned across the lane. The ground floor has flexible space with a guest bedroom suite and three good reception rooms. The kitchen is in need of updating, but practically placed at the rear of the house with adjoining boot/utility room entrance with cloakroom. Outside is a useful Studio building which could easily be a home office or games room. There is scope to modernise and extend subject to planning consent and create a wonderful home for anyone with outdoor, country or gardening interests.

LOCATION Set back off a winding country lane between Hawkley and Liss in the heart of the South Downs National Park, Brickfields is positioned within its own garden and grounds with farmland on three sides and approached over a gravel drive. The local village of Liss is nearby with local shops, pubs and a station. Hawkley also has a popular country pub and active village community. More extensive amenities are available nearby at Petersfield. The surrounding rural landscape has remained largely unaltered over many centuries with an extensive network of local lanes, footpaths and bridleways provide amazing walks and cycling routes, ideal for any country/outdoor enthusiasts. The A3 with trunk road connections is within 5 minutes' drive meaning the larger centres of Guildford, Portsmouth (with ferry services) and Winchester via A31/A272 are within reasonable driving distance, as are the creeks and inlets of the South Coast. There are well regarded state and private schools within the region, including Bedales and Churcher's at Petersfield, Highfield at Liphook and The Alton School.



OUTSIDE The garden and grounds are well arranged around the property and laid mainly to lawn for ease of management and enclosed by mature hedges, but with plenty of mature shrubs and several stocked herbaceous beds. In the orchard are some lovely trees including a wonderful blue cedar, horse chestnut, willow, walnut, cherry, fruit trees underplanted with spring bulbs. A seasonal pond provides a natural wildlife habitat in all about 0.85 of an acre (0.345 ha). Across the lane are two grass fields each with road access totalling about 4.21 acres (1.7 ha).
