A substantial country house in stunning parkland grounds of about 6.5 acres.

Westhill House is an attractive traditionally built country house designed by Nigel Anderson at Adam Architecture. The design was inspired by Rotherfield Park House which is 2 miles away and incorporates classic lines, red brick and tiled hung elevations and pretty windows. The spacious flexible accommodation is arranged over three floors and benefits from high ceilings and large windows creating a light and airy atmosphere. The property has been built with quality in mind with solid wall and floor construction and with modern conveniences including a high pressure water system and super fast broadband making working from home easy. The versatile reception rooms are well-designed with a good flow between the rooms and a great connection between the house and the garden. There is an additional reception room on the lower ground floor with french doors opening onto the garden with a number of potential uses.

This property has 6.5 acres of land.

Outside

Westhill House is in a stunning secluded location, approached through double wrought iron electric gates with a sweeping drive leading up to the house and the detached double garage. The park-like grounds extend to about 6.5 acres with stunning countryside views from many of the rooms. The gardens are dotted with a number of specimen trees, and orchard and there is a stunning mature backdrop to the house. The paddock is bordered by post and rail fencing with two five bar gates onto Kitcombe Lane. Full planning exists for a stable block with the preliminary work having begun and the field has full equestrian planning use.

Situation

Westhill House is located in a beautiful spot near the small village of Lower Farringdon, located in the South Downs National Park, surrounded by rolling countryside. The surroundings to Westhill House are stunning all through the seasons with walks, riding and cycling practically on the doorstep. Many connecting byways and footpaths take you to the Selbourne hangers, Pilgrims Way and South Downs. There are two excellent livery stables nearby. Farringdon has two well-regarded pubs, The Rose & Crown and The Golden Pheasant. The nearby pretty village of Chawton was once home to Jane Austen, and her house in the village has been converted into a museum. Also in Chawton there is also a well- regarded primary school, a pub, a café and a village hall, while further amenities can be found nearby in Alton. There is an excellent choice of private schools in the area including Bedales, Churchers, The Alton School and Lord Wandsworth College. Alton has a variety of supermarkets, shops and leisure facilities. The larger towns of Farnham, Winchester and Guildford are a little further afield. Alton’s mainline station offers direct services to London Waterloo in just over an hour, while the area is also well connected by road, with the A31 providing access towards Winchester or Guildford, the A3 connecting London and the south coast (about 40 minutes away) while the M3 (Jct 6) is within easy reach.

Directions

From Farnham, follow the A31 for 10 miles towards Alton and Winchester. At the Chawton roundabout take the left turn on the A32 towards Fareham and Petersfield. Continue through the village of Lower Farringdon and after about 0.5 mile turn right into Kitcombe Lane. Go to the very end and as the lane bears around to the right Westhill House is the first property on the right.
