PROPERTY SUMMARY Hampshire Gate is aptly named as it sits close to the border of Hampshire & West Sussex along a country lane in the hamlet of Langley, an area that forms part of the South Downs National Park and an area of outstanding natural beauty. We understand that the original cottage dated back from the 1880's and was later extended in the 1960/70's now providing 1962 sq ft of living space including stores, shed and garage. The accommodation is arranged over two primary floors and comprises; an open plan sitting room incorporating snug to one end, a dining room, kitchen, bathroom and study on the ground floor with four bedrooms and a feature bathroom on the first floor, there is also a good sized cellar. The house sits proudly elevated back from a crescent style gravel driveway on grounds which extend to approximately 1.24 acres including a separate paddock with field shelter. There are fields on three sides with mature woodland and wild flower areas, the sweeping driveway leads from the front of the property to a car parking area and open fronted double garage. Hampshire Gate has a symmetrical frontage with a central pathway, with lawns to either side leading to the main front door and porch, to the right hand side of the plot is a private paddock with its own gateway from the adjacent lane. Being located at the end of the lane via a gated entrance and surrounded by countryside the property provides a good degree of privacy. For commuters there are mainline railway stations in Liphook (4 miles), Liss (3 miles) and Petersfield (6 miles), the major south coast cities, such as Guildford, Southsea with its Victorian Waterfront and the historic City of Chichester are approximately equidistant at 21 miles to the north, south or south east directions. The area is noted for its bridleways including the nearby Shipwrights Way, footpaths and countryside walks which are all close by, the area is well served with excellent State and Private Schools, including Churchers, Highfield and Bohunt Secondary School.
