An attractive period farmhouse in a lovely rural setting with 1.85 acres.
PROPERTY Crowshole Farmhouse is a charming detached house dating we believe from the 1890's and formerly part of Crowshole Farm. Our client bought the property 10 years ago and has sympathetically restored and extended it, keeping many of the original features, but adding a contemporary twist, offering light, bright family accommodation. Of particular note is the orangery extension to the kitchen which provides a large, open dining space for today's style of living. The sitting room and family room are divided by folding oak doors to allow the rooms to be used as one if required. On the lower ground floor there is a fifth bedroom which was used as the shop selling milk from the dairy farm when the house was originally built. The garden is a wonderful playground for children, and there are attractive views over open countryside. In all, a fantastic package making for a beautiful family home.
LOCATION The property lies out in the country between Iping and Trotton and is 1.1 miles from Stedham which has a pub, church and village hall and is about 2.8 miles from the well regarded town of Midhurst with a comprehensive range of facilities. Petersfield and the A3 are located 7.3 miles to the west and the other regional centres of Chichester, and Guildford, together with London are all within reasonable driving distance. Stations are available at Petersfield, Liphook and Haslemere, all with services to London Waterloo. There is a wide range of educational facilities in the area with a primary school in Stedham and then Bedales and Churchers at Petersfield, Ditcham Park and Seaford. The village lies in the heart of the South Downs National Park and there are numerous recreational facilities including riding and walking within the area. The property is across from a bridleway to Iping and Stedham Commons, a haven for naturalists and dog walkers.
OUTSIDE The south-facing house is fronted by young fruit trees with a good sized parking area. There is a large timber garden store with a further timber shed beyond that. Adjacent to the kitchen there is a lovely large terrace and barbeque area, which leads to extensive garden, including open areas of lawn, lightly wooded areas and woodland. The garden is a fantastic playground for children, and there are attractive views over open countryside.
