Stylish and unique village cottage available for sale or to rent
Located in the heart of the popular South Downs village of Hawkley, this stunning cottage has been sympathetically extended and refurbished to create a stylish and attractive home. The property has been finished to emphasis its unique character features while modern touches have been incorporated. The result is an attractive home with contemporary living space and all the character of a property of its period, including exposed timbers, brickwork and inglenook fireplaces.
The ground floor accommodation includes a contemporary kitchen/breakfast room opening to a spacious living area with central inglenook fireplace.
There is a glass linked family room which could equally be ideal as a home/office space, a cosy sitting room with exposed timbers and fireplace and a cloakroom.
A staircase leads to the landing with modern glass floor showcasing the room below. The master bedroom is at the rear of the cottage and has triple aspect windows and an en suite with shower. A family bathroom and three further bedrooms, each benefitting from overhead beams and brick feature walls, and one with further en suite, completes the first floor accommodation.
Externally, to the front there is a small garden area and driveway for multiple cars and to the rear is a good size garden with spacious patio area, raised beds, and a wide lawn sweeping towards open countryside and lovely views.
Hawkley is a rural village with a quintessential village green, popular bistro pub, church and village hall. Petersfield, less than 8 miles away, provides a good range of shops including Waitrose and the larger centres of Chichester, Winchester and Guildford all offer more extensive shopping and leisure facilities.
With easy access to the A3, connecting to the M25 and the rest of the motorway network, this property is, though rural, well placed for commuting. The closest mainline services run from Petersfield to London Waterloo with a regular service taking just under an hour.
The area is well served for sporting and leisure facilities which include horse racing at Goodwood and Fontwell, polo at Cowdray Park, golf at Hindhead, Liphook and Petersfield and sailing off the South Coast at Chichester. The surrounding countryside is networked by footpaths and bridle paths providing excellent opportunities for walking (including the Hangers Way and the South Downs Way) and riding. There are also many renowned schools in the area including Bedales School, Ditcham Park and Churcher’s College.
