Close by are Alton, Petersfield, Winchester and Alresford which is excellent for everyday shopping and there are village amenities and shops in Ropley, East Tisted, West Meon and at West Meon Hut, a garage/shop. The house is well placed for main roads, including the A32, A31, A272 and the A3, all providing fast links around the county and to London, the M25 orbital motorway and the airports. For the commuter, Petersfield and Alton have mainline stations to London Waterloo. In this part of Hampshire there are an excellent range of schools including Bedales and Churchers at Petersfield, Alton Convent, Winchester College and St Swithuns, Pilgrims, and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College. The house is a detached three storey former period farmhouse plus cellar, not listed (neither are the remaining buildings). The original part of the house (the southern half) is believed to date back to circa 1650, it was originally part of the Tichbourne Estate. It is timber framed, with mellow brick elevations, tile hung at first floor level, and has inset sash and casement windows. The northern half was added some twelve years ago and has matching elevations all under a tiled and dormered roof. The house has been restored carefully retaining all of its inherent character, but is now in need of some updating. On the ground floor the front door opens into an entrance hall. There is a sitting room, Jotel wood burning fire, dining room, cellar housing the boiler, second entrance side porch, hall, utility and cloak rooms leading through to kitchen breakfast room, larder and study. Between the ground floor and first floor landing is a very special drawing room with wonderful views over the gardens and grounds. It has a Jetmaster fire, and at this level there is also a guest bathroom. On the first floor front landing, with the principal suite, bedroom 1, adjoining bathroom and a second bedroom. On the second floor rear landing, with bedrooms 3, 4 and a shower room, and off the front landing, two vaulted bedrooms, 5 and 6.

Outbuildings include a five bay Hampshire barn, brick and weather boarded elevations under a corrugated roof. This building has the potential for development subject to the necessary consents. Garaging is provided by a traditional oak framed 3-bay cart shed, which has an enclosed workshop/garden machinery store. To the rear of the barn planning permission has been granted for a stable block. Gardens and Grounds Surrounding the house are wonderful mature gardens and grounds, about 1.5 acres.
