    Local information

    • The Preshaw Estate, approached via a part tree-lined private drive, is an idyllic rural setting within the South Downs National Park enjoying some of the best countryside views across the estate. The property forms part of a conversion from the original Preshaw Estate and comprises one of a number of properties which were stylishly and imaginatively converted about 25 years ago. The small group of properties sits within view of the large Preshaw Country house, and is surrounded by the fields and woods of this farming estate within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
    • The Georgian market town of Alresford provides local shopping. The cathedral city of Winchester is about 8 miles away, and Petersfield 14 miles to the east, both offering main line railway stations with services to London Waterloo (approximately 1 hour) together with a comprehensive range of retail, cultural and educational amenities. The market town of Bishops Waltham lies within about 5 miles with a range of local shops and restaurants. The M3 motorway (J9) is about 6 miles away, enabling direct road access to central London and the M27 to the South.
    • Cheriton Primary School and Perins Secondary School are the catchment area schools. There is also a good range of private schools in the area including Winchester College, St Swithun's, Twyford, Prince's Mead and The Pilgrims' School. There is also Peter Symonds Sixth Form College in Winchester.
