A beautifully presented Victorian family house sitting in private gardens
THE PROPERTY Old Heath is a fascinating house dating, we believe, from the mid Victorian period and was once the home of the family of the famous novelist Neville Shute. Our client has sympathetically refurbished it from top to bottom, preserving and enhancing the period features, and adding contemporary touches. Throughout the house there are well proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights and large windows providing a lot of light. To one side of the house there is the double garage and above this is the studio which has great potential for further enhancement.
OUTSIDE A drive leads via electric gates to a large parking area adjacent to the house. The gardens fall into two main areas with a large area of lawn to the south of the drive and a further area of garden to the rear of the house with a large terrace area for entertaining and further areas of lawn. The gardens offer a high level of privacy and total about 0.3 acres.
LOCATION The house sits in private gardens set well back from Hill Brow Road. Local facilities in the village of Liss are 1.3 miles away with a selection of shops, a doctor's surgery and mainline station with train services to London Waterloo. The larger centre of Petersfield is 3.4 miles away and has a comprehensive range of shopping, sporting and leisure facilities and an alternative mainline station. The area is well served by excellent state and private schools; with a popular village school in Liss and secondary school Bohunt at Liphook in the state sector and then Highfield, Churchers College and Bedales to name but a few in the private sector. The house is located in the heart of the South Downs National Park and in the area there are an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways providing excellent scope for riding and walking.
