When you are looking for a home with the ‘wow’ factor then look no further.

It sits proudly well back from the road via a private driveway and is located within the South Downs National Park, the house itself has 2610 sq ft of living space with a further 1294 sq ft of garaging/car port and tractor store. The extensive grounds are reached by a private roadway and the house is surrounded by approximately 2 acres of formal gardens and woodland, extending into further woodland and recreation grounds. Within the grounds is a recreation ground, a pavilion and separate tea room with 1835 sq ft of changing rooms, wash facilities etc. What is most unusual is the rather unique opportunity to own your own recreation ground and pavilion.

PROPERTY SUMMARY When you are looking for a home with the 'wow' factor then look no further. Little Copse is not only an individually designed detached family home sitting on mature formal gardens it also has extensive land extending to approximately 12.95 acres including woodland and its own cricket grounds and pavilion. It sits proudly well back from the road via a private driveway and is located within the South Downs National Park, the house itself has 2610 sq ft of living space with a further 1294 sq ft of garaging/car port and tractor store. This home has been extended by the current owners and comprises; hallway, sitting room, conservatory, dining room, 19' kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, study, utility room and home office on the ground floor with four double bedrooms, two having en-suite facilities and a family bathroom on the first floor, there is also a separate workshop above the double garage. The extensive grounds are reached by a private roadway and the house is surrounded by approximately 2 acres of formal gardens and woodland, extending into further woodland and recreation grounds. Within the grounds is a recreation ground, a pavilion and separate tea room with 1835 sq ft of changing rooms, wash facilities etc. This family home is located approximately 4 miles from the village of Hambledon, which is is renowned for being the 'Cradle of Cricket', the rules were made at the Bat and Ball Pub on the Broad Halfpenny Down, the pub is located approximately 1.3 miles away.
Little Copse is one of only five houses within Hyden Wood, a setting that is typical Southern English countryside surrounded by sweeping farmland and splendid woodland, all within the South Downs National Park. It is also approximately 2 miles from East Meon Village, where there are restaurants, pubs and shopping amenities as well as being 6 miles from the market town of Petersfield, with its commutable road and rail links to London (Waterloo) by either the A3(M) or the mainline railway station, it is also within 17 miles of Winchester. Set within Butser Hill National Nature Reserve and within close proximity of Queen Elizabeth Country Park, the property benefits from all the advantages of being in a semi-rural, desirable close to nature location, yet within easy access of the South Coast's major cities. What is most unusual is the rather unique opportunity to own your own recreation ground and pavilion, this land was formally the recreation ground of the Royal Navy HMS Mercury so it is protected against any potential redevelopment.
