PROPERTY SUMMARY 'The Old Farmhouse' is the principal property in the development of Little Denmead Farm, whose varied farm buildings have been converted into family houses. The property is a Grade II Listed thatched house, believed to have origins dating from the 16th century. It has been extensively renovated, improved and extended, combining sustainable technologies, including a ground heat source with traditional materials. These works have been completed in a style that is sensitive to the history of the building, whilst providing contemporary family living. The accommodation, extending to approximately 3,650 sq ft is arranged over two floors and combines flexible living space with abundant character. It has some wonderful features including an exposed well, cellar and beamed vaulted ceilings. The ground floor accommodation has a mixture of oak and brick tiled flooring, spacious reception rooms and a wood burner with back boiler in the sitting room. It is situated in an accessible rural setting with outlooks over the surrounding countryside, yet within around ¾ mile of Denmead village centre with its varied pubs, shops a post office and day to day facilities. The grounds extend to approximately 0.58 of an acre and are partially walled with an open lawn to the rear of the property. To the front is a gravelled parking area with a driveway to the side leading to an oak framed garage. A loft conversion above the garage has created a spacious room, currently used as home office space/gym and provides potential for conversion, subject to consents. The A3 (M) is accessible allowing direct road access to London and the South Coast. Petersfield station has regular trains to London Waterloo (approximately an hour's journey). There is an excellent choice of schools in the area, including Churchers College, Portsmouth Grammar School and Bedales. The area also allows a wealth of leisure pursuits, including the countryside of the South Downs National Park.
