A beautiful listed farmhouse on the edge of Sheet sitting in large private gardens
THE PROPERTY Burnt Ash Farmhouse is a fascinating Grade II listed farmhouse dating we understand from 1656. Our client has sympathetically restored and extended the property which includes a fantastic kitchen/breakfast room opening onto the garden. There are three reception rooms and five bedrooms together with a shower room and bathroom and a host of period features including a bread oven and well. There is also a useful studio and utility room together with a study. The house sits in attractive grounds of about 0.65 acres and within the garden there is a useful garden store. Our client also has live planning permission for a single garage and store. In all a great family home and an early appointment to view is strongly recommended.
OUTSIDE A gravel drive leads down to a good sized parking area adjacent to the house. To the side of the drive there is a front garden mainly laid to lawn with a separate access out to the lane and to the side of the house is where there is planning for the new single garage. A path leads round the side of the house and past the garden store to a large area of terracing to the rear of the property which then opens to large open areas of lawn bounded by trees and hedges. Towards the bottom of the garden there is a mature oak tree and an orchard and the grounds as a whole total 0.65 acres.
LOCATION The property lies out in country between the villages of Sheet and Steep Marsh and whilst its address is the latter, it is effectively on the edge of Sheet, just a short walk from the village green and Queens Head. The thriving village has a good range of facilities including a church, village school and three pubs. The property is only 1.6 miles from the centre of Petersfield which benefits from a comprehensive range of shopping, sporting and leisure facilities including a Waitrose and a mainline station with train services to London Waterloo in just over one hour. Petersfield is also the home of Bedales and Churcher's College. The property is a short drive from the A3 which provides fast road links to the M25 and London and also the South Coast with its attractive harbours and creeks. The property is located in the heart of the South Downs National Park and the surrounding countryside is crisscrossed by footpaths and bridleways providing excellent scope for riding and walking.
