Grade II Listed thatched cottage surrounded by its own land including paddocks and woodland.
The property is a most attractive Grade II Listed thatched cottage situated in a picturesque position off a quiet lane and surrounded by its own land including paddocks and woodland, creating the feel of a small estate. The property, which has 17th Century origins, would have originally been two cottages and now offers flexible three/four bedroom accommodation of immense character and charm, with period features typical of a cottage of this era, including heavily beamed ceilings and walls and large fireplaces. In addition to the excellent accommodation offered in the farmhouse itself, a barn has recently been converted to create a most impressive party room with its heavily timbered vaulted ceiling, timber floors, wood burner and coach doors that open out onto the courtyard.
Outside, the property is approached through a five-bar gate into a large gravelled parking and turning area which spans from the barn across to the front of the house and the brick and flint wall that protects the front garden from the driveway. The gravelled driveway is bordered on a number of sides with mature traditional English garden shrubs and flowers, with an open bay garage and a delightful dining area which lies beneath a pergola. The front gardens are approached through a wooden gate in the brick and flint wall, and these too are stocked with a large variety of attractive flowers and shrubs with a brick pathway that leads to the front door, the gardens and side gate.
Directly adjacent to the rear of the property is an area of lawn with a small orchard, and this lawned garden is bordered from the paddocks by rustic post and rail fencing. The formal gardens continue round to the vegetable and fruit gardens.
The paddocks to the property lie to the north of the house and extend to just over 2 acres, and on the other side of the lane is a small area of woodland and a delightful pond. In all the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 4.15 acres.
From the lane, access can be gained to an open bay barn-style garage. A large timber built garden store lies adjacent to the barn.
The cottage is situated in a spectacular rural position just outside the picturesque village of High Cross in the parish of Froxfield. Its position adjacent to open fields and areas of woodland is particularly idyllic with fine walks and riding to be enjoyed in the immediate area, and it is situated conveniently for both the market town of Petersfield and the cathedral city of Winchester. Communications to London are close at hand with the A3 at Petersfield (6 miles), the M3 at junction 5 (18 miles) and railway links to London available from Alton, Petersfield and indeed Winchester.
There are a large number of state and private schools in the area, including Froxfield Church of England Infants School, primary schools at Steep and Selbourne, The Petersfield School, Bedales, Churcher's College, Highfield School in Liphook and Alton Convent in nearby Alton. Winchester offers further educational opportunities with Princes’ Mead, St Swithun's School for Girls, Winchester College, the Pilgrims School, and nearby Twyford School.
The delightful countryside in the area provides a range of opportunities, with nearby golf courses including the Royal Winchester Golf Club, Old Thorns Golf Club and Alresford Golf Club. There is wonderful walking and riding country in the immediate proximity, and fishing is available on the well-known rivers of the Itchen and the Test. The beaches of the south coast at Chichester are within easy driving distance, with sailing on the south coast, the Solent and the Hamble.
