Located in the heart of the popular village of Hawkley, this stunning cottage presents stylish contemporary living space with all the character of a property of its period retained, to include exposed timbers, brickwork and inglenook fireplaces.
In recent years the cottage has been sympathetically extended and improved to create a stylish and attractive home. The ground floor accommodation includes a contemporary kitchen/breakfast room which opens opening to a spacious living area with central inglenook fireplace.
A glass linked family room would equally be ideal as a home/office space and a cosy sitting room with exposed timbers and fireplace plus cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
A staircase leads to the landing with modern glass floor showcasing the room below.
There is a master bedroom at the rear of the cottage with triple aspect windows and 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.
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 lovely views.
Hawkley is a rural village with a quintessential village green, popular bistro pub next door (with b&b facilities so restricted hours so as to minimise noise), 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 to include Bedales, Ditcham Park and Churchers.

The Country House Company worked incredibly hard to secure us our dream house in Hambledon and we could not be more grateful. Kate was incredibly knowledgeable and open about the house and its history, the local area and the market. We were kept in the loop on communications with the vendor, we never needed to chase and felt that whilst the vendors wishes were communicated and respected our cause was similarly championed which ultimately resulted the best outcome for all. If and when we choose to sell our home, we won’t be going anywhere else. Our experience demonstrates that getting the right team on the case makes all the difference. Thank you Kate and the team at The Country House Company!View all testimonials
