THE PROPERTY

A lovely detached single storey property occupying a rural position in the heart of the South Downs National Park. Originally constructed between the wars, the property has been cleverly extended and now provides very flexible accommodation, currently arranged as 3 bedrooms plus a particularly spacious annexe but can easily be occupied as a 4/5 bedroom property. Being in such a rural location the property has stunning long range views to the south across adjacent farmland and the south downs. Outside the property has a range of outbuildings including a double stable block, workshop, summer house, garage and tractor shed, and the full plot extends to 0.9 acres. Nearby facilities include The Red Lion at Chalton, The George at Finchdean, and the house is close to the south drive of Ditcham Park School. Just beyond Chalton is access to the A3 providing fast travel to either London or Portsmouth. Rowlands Castle or Petersfield railway stations are both a short drive away. Rowlands Castle provides a range of local shopping facilities. Idsworth is a hamlet in the South Downs National Park around 7 miles south east of Petersfield and 13 miles north west of Chichester. Nearby St Huberts Church is one of the oldest surviving shepherds churches and there are hunderds of miles of public footpaths and bridleways providing excellent access to the South Downs National Park.
