THE PROPERTY

An exceptional and well restored Grade II Listed period village house with an excellent cottage, beautiful garden and grounds, and southerly views to the Hangers, protected in the South Downs National Park Hawkley, which is one of the prettiest and most unspoilt villages on the eastern side of Hampshire, lies within the South Downs National Park. It is close to the villages of Steep and Froxfield between the A32 and A3, north of the A272 with the old market town of Alton in the north and Petersfield in the south. The house is perfectly situated in the centre of the village adjoining Upper Green whilst still enjoying the most wonderful far reaching views to the south to the tree studded Hangers. The property is a fine Grade II listed village house, formerly an Elizabethan L-shaped farmhouse which was subsequently extended in a major way in 1862 by the renowned Victorian architect, Teulon. The accommodation, so typical of its era, is beautifully proportioned with much architectural detailing, high ceilings and lots of light from the large windows which in turn provide superb views of the adjoining countryside. In addition there is excellent ancillary accommodation in the form of a 3 bedroom Cottage which also has permission for short term holiday lets. The house is approached off Upper Green through wrought iron automatic gates. In front of the house there is ample parking for several cars and the drive continues to the rear of the property where the original Victorian stables and the Cottage are situated. There is a further garage and workshop, a heated swimming pool, summerhouse, and hard tennis court. Also at the rear of the property is a large York stone paved area with outdoor pizza oven and a wisteria covered pergola. Ideal for entertaining and easily accessed directly from the Kitchen/family room via bifold doors. The grounds are a special feature which have evolved over the last century, mature hedges create separate areas facing predominately south and west and take full advantage of the fabulous views to The Hangers. The gardens are lawned and studded with flowering trees, specimen evergreens a mass of spring bulbs and banks of flowering shrubs. There is a productive vegetable garden and soft fruit cage. There are also three small orchards and a wildlife pond. Directly to the south is a fenced paddock which has a field shelter and separate vehicular access from Cheesecombe Lane. The gardens and grounds extend in all to about 5.584 acres (2.26 ha)
