Tenure: Freehold

THE PROPERTY Orchard Cottage was converted and refurbished from a pair of cottages into a versatile house fit for the 21st century, with a contemporary feel inside but with character touches including exposed oak joinery, some vaulted interior rooms and a fantastic open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room at the heart of the house. There is a well proportioned drawing room for more formal occasions and a flexible vaulted study with adjacent shower room/cloakroom which can be used as a ground floor fifth bedroom. The utility rear entrance is practical space after country walks for all seasons. The house has an easy ground floor flow ideal for entertaining and is well balanced upstairs by four first floor bedrooms (inc. a vaulted master bedroom suite) and a handy attic area for overflow space or hobbies. There are French windows opening into the garden from three aspects for easy access.
 

LOCATION Hawkley is one of Hampshire's most unspoilt quintessential villages, where time has almost passed by, but the village is far from a "time warp" with an active community, wonderful local walks and miles of single track country lanes to explore, set amongst beautiful undulating countryside including the Ashford Hangers Nature Reserve nearby. Orchard Cottages is positioned in the heart of the community within walking distance of the village amenities, including the well regarded Hawkley Inn, church, village hall (with Montessori school), cricket ground with play area and tennis court. Petersfield with its comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose and main line station is an easy drive or a more local station at Liss for commuting. The A3 with trunk road connections is within 5 minutes' drive meaning the larger centres of Guildford, Portsmouth (with ferry services) and Winchester via A31/A272 are within reasonable driving distance, as are the creeks and inlets of the South Coast. There are well regarded state and private schools within the region, including Bedales and Churcher's at Petersfield, Highfield at Liphook and Alton Convent.

The village is part of an ancient landscape virtually unaltered over the centuries and now in the heart of the South Downs National Park. The steep sided wooded hillsides are known as the "Hangers" and are largely beech woodland with some yew, ash and wild cherry on chalk which provide a habitat for many rare species.

In a nutshell:

We love being at the heart of the village yet with an active community and such amazing walks and cycling options on our doorstep, a special unspoilt corner of Hampshire. 

OUTSIDE A gravelled drive swings into a wide turning and parking area in front of the barn garage which has a large studio/playroom over with shower room which could also be a useful home office. Picket fencing with pedestrian gates separate the drive from the garden (dog friendly).

The garden has been well landscaped and laid out mainly to lawn for ease of management with two lovely old copper beech trees and several paved terraced areas for seasonal variety, with a morning sun trap outside the kitchen. There are some herbaceous beds and scope for any keen gardener to develop the garden further. In all about 0.44 of an acre (0.181 ha).
