Amid peaceful rolling countryside

Amid peaceful rolling countryside

Dating from the 16th century this wonderful barn conversion enjoys a peaceful rural location within a former farmstead a couple of miles to the south of Hambledon and about ten miles from Petersfield where there is a mainline station.

The barn sits within its own well kept gardens with a south facing courtyard, a sunken seating area, together with lawns, shrubs and herbaceous borders which will be maintained by the landlord’s gardener, leaving the tenant just to take care of lawn mowing and trimming the edges when necessary.

The striking galleried entrance hall provides a wonderful reception area with high ceilings and hand crafted, double glazed windows on either side, flooding the room with light. Skilfully converted to give a cosy family space, with a central fireplace, the Yorkshire flagstone floor has under floor heating and the French windows open to the sunny courtyard garden.

An Aga takes centre stage in the kitchen where there is plenty of space for dining and relaxing and a wall of glazing provides a wide view of the newly landscaped terrace and east facing gardens. Immediately above the kitchen, accessed from the main reception hall, is a fabulous reception room with far reaching views.

Three bedrooms, a new shower room and a utility room take up the rest of the ground floor with wonderful exposed beams throughout.

A separate staircase leads to a galleried landing with a study area overlooking the reception hall. A generous master bedroom leads off here with more wonderful views. The adjacent bathroom has separate shower and roll top bath.

Within the grounds is covered parking for two cars

Nearby there is a footpath and further along the lane, a bridle way, which is a short cut through to the centre of Hambledon village.
