Liphook is situated off the A3, Portsmouth Road, close to the Surrey, Hampshire, West Sussex borders and is well located for access to the neighbouring towns of Farnham and Petersfield and the south coast, with the Hindhead Tunnel having reduced travelling time to London, the M25 and the airports. Liphook has a range of local amenities for daily needs, including a Sainsbury's supermarket, and a main line railway station offering a fast and frequent service into London/Waterloo, with journey times from about 63 minutes. The area benefits from a wide choice of state and private schools, including Churchers College, Highfield, Amesbury, Bohunt and The Royal School. Golf is available at a number of local clubs, with racing and flying at Goodwood and sailing at Chichester Harbour, whilst the surrounding countryside offers ample opportunity for walking, cycling and riding in areas like Bramshott Chase, The Devils Punchbowl and Alice Holt Forest.
Just under a mile from the town centre, The Gate House enjoys a pleasant semi-rural situation, surrounded by its own beautifully landscaped grounds. Understood to date from the 1930s, The Gate House is an attractive property, with brick and colour-washed elevations under a plain tiled roof. Some five years ago the property was substantially extended and now provides flexible accommodation. Internally, the property offers a bright and spacious triple aspect sitting room with garden views, Jetmaster woodburning grate and French doors to the terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room benefits from a gas fired AGA and an adjoining family room. The kitchen also connects with an attractive orangery that opens onto the terrace and garden. The extended portion of the property includes rooms that would render it particularly suitable for a dependent relative. First floor rooms include an attractive master suite and five further bedrooms, most of which benefit from attractive garden views. Two further bath/shower rooms and ample storage complete the arrangements.
Gardens and Grounds
The beautifully tended grounds are a particular feature of this property. From the lane, double timber gates open onto a gravel drive flanked by areas of lawn, with spring bulbs and pollard lime trees. The drive leads to a forecourt and parking area. The remainder of the grounds lie to the south and west of the house and comprise a full width paved terrace, with raised planters of lavender, roses and spring bulbs. Steps lead up to areas of level lawn with a variety of adjoining beds and herbaceous borders. A path leads to a greenhouse, potting shed and a workshop with light and power connected. The formal garden is enclosed and rendered delightfully private by hedges and a backdrop of trees. Paths lead between rhododendron borders to a further area of natural garden and light woodland.
6 bedrooms, 4 bath/shower rooms (2 en suite), reception hall, sitting room, dining room, family room, guest room/study, kitchen/breakfast room, orangery, 2nd kitchen, larder, and utility/boot room. Double and single garages, workshop, greenhouse, gardens, in all about 2.3 acres.
