Wild Strawberry House occupies a prime and commanding position on a much sought-after address, walking distance to Petersfield High Street and railway station. The highly desirable market town has a mainline station which provides frequent services into London Waterloo taking about 67 minutes. The town provides extensive shopping facilities as well as a superb selection of coffee shops, pubs and restaurants.
Within the area there is an excellent range of schools including Ditcham Park between South Harting and Petersfield, Churcher's College and Bedales in Petersfield, Westbourne House in Chichester, Seaford College near Petworth, Highfield and Brookham in Liphook and The Royal School, St Edmund's and Amesbury at Hindhead.
Built we believe in the early 1930s, Wild Strawberry House is a substantial and imposing family home, which has been meticulously and sympathetically renovated during our client's ownership.
Upon entering the property via electric gates, one is immediately taken with the property's striking modernist façade and imposing proportions. Inside, the house boasts superb volume on every floor; for example, the entrance hall with its original flooring is light and bright, permitting access to the drawing room, kitchen/breakfast/dining room, or directly onto the rear terrace and formal gardens beyond.
The drawing room is elegantly proportioned and benefits from a dual aspect with a large bay window at the southern end, a log burner and tall ceiling heights.
The kitchen/breakfast/dining room is the heart of the home, again featuring a wonderful bay window and an open-plan space seamlessly combining the highly sought-after living, entertaining, and dining experience. From here, one can access is the terrace, rear garden and swimming pool area.
In addition to the principal reception rooms, the property boasts a snug adjoining the kitchen/breakfast room with double-sided log burner, and an adjacent studio with double doors which open onto a part-covered terrace and offers great versatility in its uses.
To the first and second floors are five bedrooms suites. The principal bedroom suite is of excellent size, and features floor-to-ceiling wardrobes, a dressing area at the eastern end and a superb en suite bathroom with separate bath and walk-in shower. This room also has access to its own private terrace. The guest suite pays homage to the Modernist era, with its use of bold colours, wood panelling in bathroom and period fixtures and fittings. The further four bedrooms are excellent doubles and benefit from their own unique styles and arrangements.
The grounds of Wild Strawberry House are particularly special; they feature large terraces across the rear of the property, an attractive outdoor pool, a flat lawn, distinctive architectural planting and a wildflower meadow.
The property additionally benefits from a circular driveway offering plentiful parking in addition to the two large integral garages.
