An attractive Victorian country house standing in grounds of 4.4 acres
THE PROPERTY Marchwood Lodge is a Victorian country house, extended by our clients in the late 1990's. The accommodation offers bright well proportioned rooms with 5 bedrooms in all, two principle reception rooms, and a further family room. A particular feature are the lovely grounds of 4.4 acres, and consist of a large formal garden leading to both rewilding and woodland areas. We believe there is potential to enlarge the property if required either by extending it or by converting the extensive attics, subject of course to the normal consents. An early appointment to view is strongly recommended.
OUTSIDE A drive leads via electric gates to a large circular drive area in front of the house and then a spur leads round to the rear to a further parking area and the garaging. In the centre of the drive there is a lovely beech tree and beyond the drive areas are large open areas of lawn with a number of mature trees and shrubs. Below the house is the swimming pool area and then beyond this an area left to nature and on the boundary, there are areas of woodland. The grounds as a whole total about 4.4 acres.
LOCATION The property is situated in a rural location on the edge of the village of Rake, with its pub, garden centre and village school. 1.5 miles away lies the village of Liss, with an alternative school, station, two doctors surgeries, a pharmacy and shops. For a comprehensive range of facilities, Petersfield is 4.3 miles to the south west and provides an alternative station. Liphook is also within reasonable driving distance. The area is well served by excellent state and private schools, including Bohunt and Highfield at Liphook, and Bedales and Churchers College at Petersfield. The property is only a few minutes drive from the A3 which provides good road access to the M25 and beyond, together with the south coast, and lies within the heart of the South Downs National Park.
Services Mains water, electricity and private drainage. There is an oil fired boiler providing hot water and central heating via an underfloor system throughout.
