The Property
Penpoll is a striking and contemporary family house with stunning views over glorious rural surroundings and yet within striking distance of London and the South Coast. The property has been designed in a sympathetic manner in order to form a beautifully finished, well-proportioned, private family house set within delightful gardens and carefully maintained lawns.

Penpoll blends contemporary design with the use of high quality materials. Internally, the house offers light and airy accommodation with scope for living accommodation on the ground floor alone. It has an array of striking features including solid ash floors, a bespoke ash staircase, custom windows and Farrow and Ball paint decoration.

There is good utility space for an outdoor lifestyle and the benefit of an integral double garage. A large reception hall leads to an impressive kitchen/breakfast room with stunning views which provides a fantastic area for family living as well as a great space for informal entertaining. The bespoke kitchen features underfloor heating, travertine tiles and granite work tops. The kitchen/breakfast room adjoins a combined family/dining room (easily compartmentalised) and further connects with a more formal sitting room with open fireplace. All 3 of the reception rooms on the ground floor benefit from bi-folding glass doors which provide direct access out onto the gardens as well as stunning views of the South Downs and the surrounding countryside. On the first floor, Penpoll has 5 well-proportioned double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. All of the bedrooms enjoy stunning far-reaching views.

Gardens & Grounds
Penpoll is approached over a gated gravel drive which leads to the front of the house and to the integrated double garage. The gardens are a great feature and amount to about 0.75 acres in all. They have been well maintained and the low hawthorn hedge, which signifies the boundary, allows the property to enjoy the exceptional views and beautiful surrounding countryside, giving a feeling of peace and tranquillity.

The Location
Penpoll occupies a magnificent position in West Harting with stunning views of the South Downs and the surrounding countryside. West Harting sits on the West Sussex/Hampshire border in the South Downs National Park and is one of the most sought-after and unspoilt hamlets within the south of England. The nearby village of South Harting provides a highly-regarded village shop, a post office, hairdressing salon and the popular public house, The White Hart Inn.

The towns of Midhurst and Petersfield are close 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 Petersfield provides a fast and regular service to London Waterloo.

Petersfield 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.
