The Property
Hyde Park House is a contemporary family house, constructed and finished to a very high standard and situated in the rural hamlet of South Ambersham. Built of brick elevations with tile hanging beneath a clay tiled roof, the attention to detail is evident from the outside in, with impressive handmade oak framing to the front and rear of the house; oak, limestone and marble flooring; underfloor heating throughout the main house and oak framed doors and windows with brass fittings. In particular, the beautiful Oriel windows to the western elevations are a delightful feature. The property also has the benefit of air source heating, which is highly effective and has low carbon emissions, making it extremely energy efficient and eco-friendly. Outside, the same high standards have been applied to the gardens, with some fine planting around the house to provide year round colour.

Approached through an electric gate over a tarmacadam drive lined by well planted shrub borders to the parking area at the front, the house sits well within its plot. A solid oak front door opens to the large reception hall, which has a magnificent vaulted ceiling, exposed oak beams and a handmade oak staircase rising up to the galleried landing with oak balustrades. From the hall, glazed double doors open into the large, light kitchen/breakfast room which, to one end, has full height, triple aspect windows and bi-fold doors leading out to the Yorkstone terrace and gardens beyond. The kitchen is very well equipped, with a walk in larder and a good range of base and wall mounted units incorporating an integral Miele microwave and dishwasher, 3 oven electric Aga and a large island unit with a wine cooler and breakfast bar, all set beneath granite work surfaces.

The kitchen leads to the dining room on one side and to the drawing room on the other, which has French doors opening to the garden and a dual sided open fire or wood burner. From the drawing room there is a lobby with a door to outside, a second staircase to the first floor, a cloakroom and a useful TV/playroom/sitting room, which really adds to the feeling of space within the property. A second cloakroom, a study and a well equipped utility room complete the ground floor.

On the first floor, the galleried landing overlooks the reception hall and leads to the master bedroom which has views to the garden and woodland beyond, a dressing room and a fully fitted bathroom with a double sized bath and 'his and hers' basins. The bathroom also has the benefit of low level lighting and the vanity/storage units in this and the other bathrooms are all handmade. There are four further bedrooms, three of which are en suite (one having a fully fitted bathroom with a cast iron bath; the other two having shower rooms). The generously sized family bathroom has a stone bath and separate shower. Back on the landing, there is a useful storage cupboard, an airing cupboard and two hatches to the attic space.

A glazed door from the utility room leads to a covered link between the house and the garage with two open bays, integral storage shed with power and a further room housing the controls for the air source heating. From the link, a door leads through to a utility/coats area with stairs rising up to the annexe above the garage. Overlooking the gardens to the rear, the studio annexe provides ideal ancillary accommodation and comprises an open plan bedroom/living room with a fully fitted kitchen, including an integral fridge, dishwasher and oven. The separate bathroom has useful eaves storage.

The Location
Set back from the lane, the property sits in a slightly elevated position amongst Heyshott Common, which is owned by The Cowdray Estate. There is direct access from the property onto the Common, which is ideal for walking and riding and the Ambersham polo grounds are within easy walking distance.

The towns of Midhurst and Petworth areclose by and provide for most everyday needs, whilst Guildford in Surrey and the Cathedral city of Chichester, both with renowned Theatres, are within easy reach and have more extensive shopping and leisure facilities. The A3 provides fast access to London, the motorway network, Gatwick, Heathrow and Southampton airports, whilst the mainline station at Haslemere provides a fast service to London Waterloo. Schools in the area include Conifers in Midhurst, Churchers College and Bedales in Petersfield, Highfield and Brookham in Liphook, Seaford College near Petworth, The Royal School in Haslemere and Westbourne House in Chichester.

Midhurst and the surrounding area have much to offer with Polo at Cowdray Park, racing at Goodwood and Fontwell, golf at Cowdray Park, Goodwood, Pulborough and Liphook, motor racing at the Goodwood circuit and sailing out of Chichester Harbour and other centres along the South Coast.

Gardens
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, interspersed with a wide variety of seasonal bulbs, mature trees and shrubs including Silver Birch, Azaleas and Rhododendrons. Original Yorkstone paving has been used to create a pathway, lit by motion sensor lighting, leading from the front door round the house to the terrace at the rear, with extensively planted borders providing seasonal colour.

Nestled within the gardens is an Ascot stable, which could be used either as storage or to house a 'stabled' horse, which would be ideal as there is direct access from the garden onto the adjacent Heyshott Common. The whole plot is fully fenced and is dog, rabbit and deer proof.

In all, the gardens extend to about 1.58 acres.
