For the first time in 33 years this imposing country home is offered to the market. Harwood House has been sensitively improved and extended to offer a host of modern conveniences but retaining a wealth of period features, including a thatched roof, mullioned windows and beams throughout this flexible accommodation.
Accessed via a storm porch, the generous ground floor accommodation flows from the welcoming reception hall with lovely oak flooring, which continues throughout the reception rooms, a useful under-stairs storage cupboard and two cloakrooms. All the main reception rooms are sunny south facing rooms. The spacious double aspect drawing room has an open fireplace and lovely views over the garden with an adjoining morning room with fireplace and access to the rear terrace, a well-proportioned study and the double aspect dining room also with a fireplace.
The large kitchen/breakfast room is at the heart of the home and incorporates a 4-oven Aga, a John Lewis of Hungerford designed fitted kitchen with appliances and a sizeable table for more informal dining. Adjacent to the kitchen is an inner hallway leading to a great family room and through to the conservatory, as well as a utility room, cloakroom and door to the driveway.
The first floor boasts seven bedrooms, two of which can be configured as a master bedroom suite accessible from the inner hallway adjoining the kitchen, offering the opportunity for a spacious master bedroom, a second bedroom ideal for use as a study, dressing room or nursery, a landing area with excellent storage and a family bathroom with bath and separate shower. The remaining five bedrooms, all with splendid views over unspoilt countryside, are serviced by a cloakroom and two family bathrooms. There is also an extensive loft area, with two fully boarded rooms.
Set within the South Downs National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Harwood House is located on the edge of the village of Hambledon, best known as the ‘Cradle of Cricket’. One of the area’s most desirable rural villages with a vibrant community and with day to day amenities including a reputable primary school, church, public house, general store and tea room and the Hambledon Vineyard. The area is surrounded by stunning countryside with excellent footpaths, woodland walks and riding.
The larger market towns of Bishops Waltham and Petersfield are very accessible and provide more comprehensive shopping along with other facilities including leisure and sporting facilities.
Transportation links are excellent, with access onto the M27 coastal motorway just to the south which connects to all parts of the country including London via the M3 motorway and train services into central London from Petersfield in about an hour.
The area has a number of state primary and secondary schools including Hambledon Primary School (rated Outstanding by Ofsted) and Swanmore Collegel, as well as a good selection of independent schools including Bedales, Churchers, Boundary Oak, Ditcham Park, Twyford, St Swithuns, Winchester College and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College in Winchester.
Set within a good-sized secluded plot and surrounded on all sides by stunning gardens, a particular feature of this property, Harwood House is accessed along a sweeping driveway with fields on either side, leading to a spacious gravelled area with plenty of turning and parking space for numerous vehicles.
Extending to about 3.68 acres, the gardens are laid mainly to lawn with a wealth of mature shrubs and trees, lending privacy to the setting, and boast a large paved terrace extending the breadth of the house, ideal for entertaining, a tennis court, stabling, a covered wood store, external wine store and a double wooden garage.
