Priors Dean, Hampshire – Lot 1

For Sale | Guide Price £3,500,000

 

Description:

A stunning residence and range of outbuildings together with grazing land amidst beautiful countryside with exceptional views.

THE PROPERTY Warrenside Farm is a "carbon negative" sustainable house set in a special natural environment with some of the counties finest and most extensive "Wow" views in many directions. Once inside, it is easy to see how well the space flows over 3 floors and how it brings the outside in with its large picture windows. The original 1940's house has been cleverly upgraded and enhanced by our clients since 2017 providing a uniquely sustainable home fit for the 21st Century. There is a wonderful open plan kitchen/dining/living room at the heart of the house, with several well proportioned reception or family/media rooms, a snug and practical boot/utility room. Careful attention to running costs with high levels of insulation, a ground source heat pump combined with extensive solar energy. It is a fantastic family home with scope to provide further ancillary accommodation with garden and grounds for children to safely free range in or to have horses or hobby livestock at home with the extensive paddocks and courtyard of buildings.

LOCATION Priors Dean is part of an ancient landscape much unaltered over the centuries and now in the heart of the South Downs National Park. The steep sided wooded hillsides are known as the "Hangers" and are largely beech woodland with some yew, ash and wild cherry on chalk which provide a habitat for many rare species. Warrenside Farm is ring fenced by its own land on high ground with commanding views.

The neighbouring village of Froxfield is a collection of rural hamlets rather than just one village, with High Cross at its centre which has a village school, large Jubilee Hall with sports clubs and a shop. Petersfield is handy with its comprehensive range of facilities. Hawkley village is also close by. The extensive network of local lanes, footpaths and bridleways provide amazing walks and cycling routes, ideal for any country/outdoor enthusiasts. The Hawkley Inn and also Pub with No Name are within country walking distance. Petersfield is about 10 minutes' drive with an extensive range of shopping amenities.



The A3 provides good regional transport links to Guildford and Portsmouth (ferry services). Chichester & Winchester are also within reach. There are well regarded state and private schools within the region, including Bedales and Churcher's at Petersfield, where there is also a station with regular trains to London via the Portsmouth Harbour to Waterloo service.



In a nutshell: "Your chance to own a carbon negative home with some of the finest views in Hampshire."

OUTSIDE The garden is manageable and arranged around the house with particular emphasis on the entertaining deck on the southerly elevation. The garden also incorporates a small pond and is designed to maximise the views of the surrounding countryside. The grounds are mainly paddocks which are accessed from the stable courtyard and with a secondary entrance on the southwest corner of the land.

LAND Lot 1 amounts to 5.01 ha (12.38 acres) and the land provides excellent free draining grassland suitable for grazing horses, sheep and cattle. There is water to the Lot and the fencing is in good order. It should be noted that a footpath runs alongside the eastern boundary.



Beyond the property, the easterly boundary neighbours an area of ancient woodland much of which is designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), so it is a very special environmental area. At present, Hampshire County Council own some of the adjoining hillside/hanger which is also a European Special Area of Conservation due to the abundance of rare flora and fauna, including red and white Helleborine (orchids). The woods also provide habitat for owls, voles and mice as well as badgers, deer and foxes.
