A comfortable character family house with flexible space yet handy for Petersfield, Liphook or Liss.
THE PROPERTY St. Paul's Manse is a charming family house with Victorian origins which has evolved over the years into a comfortable family home with space for all to call their own. The well proportioned drawing room has a lovely aspect overlooking the garden with a bay window and French doors. Double doors also open into the dining room providing flexible entertaining space. The family/sitting room is handy for young children to enjoy adjacent to the kitchen breakfast room with a back door to outside. Upstairs two of the five bedrooms have en suite bath/shower rooms and there is a useful overflow attic bedroom or hobbies space. Overall a property which flexes brilliantly as generational needs dictate.
In a nutshell:
For over 40 years the house has covered it all, with a manageable garden to enjoy and easy driving distance of Liss or Petersfield.
OUTSIDE A tarmacadam drive sweeps in front and to one side of the house providing parking. The garden lies mainly to the rear with a lovely sheltered feel provided by the mature boundary planting, old stone wall, fencing and neighbouring trees giving a subtle variety of colours. A terrace runs behind the house with an area of lawn beyond and several stocked herbaceous borders.
