A beautifully converted barn sitting amidst lovely Hampshire rolling countryside.
PROPERTY The Threshing Barn is a beautiful conversion of a 18th Century barn completed in 2006, sitting on the edge of a farmstead amidst lovely rolling Hampshire countryside. The thing that immediately strikes one on entering the property is the way the property combines the best features of a converted barn, but still has the feel of a period house. A particular feature is the lovely large kitchen, dining, sitting room, and the large vaulted entrance hall. Adjacent to the barn is an annexe building called The Bothy which is made up of a hall, sitting/bedroom area and bathroom and is very flexible in the way it can be used.
OUTSIDE A gateway leads to a very large gravel parking area which in turn leads to the car barn with two parking bays and adjacent to this an office. On the southern side of the house are the gardens with a large stone terrace leading to open areas of lawn bounded in places by herbaceous and shrub borders. There is a summer house to one side of the garden and there is also a greenhouse. The grounds total about 0.7 acres. With access via a pedestrian gate there is a right of way leading to a timber garden shed with a storage area and oil tank behind.
LOCATION The property lies in the heart of the South Down National Park and is set back from a quiet country lane in the well regarded village of Privett, which is a collection of hamlets. There is a church in the village and a village hall and the nearest shop is at the Meon Hut crossroads 1.2 miles away. The larger villages of West Meon, East Meon and Froxfield are all close by, and Petersfield with its comprehensive facilities including a main line station and Waitrose is 6.6 miles to the east. Winchester is about 13.2 miles to the west along the A272.
The A3 at Petersfield provides good regional transport links to Guildford and the M25/London beyond. At Winchester the M3/A34 links to Southampton and the north. There are many well regarded state and private schools within the region, including Bedales and Churchers at Petersfield or St Swithuns, Winchester College, Twyford and The Pilgrims' School in and around Winchester and Alton College at Alton. The surrounding countryside is crisscrossed by footpaths and bridleways, including the South Down Way.
