About this property

  • Charlwood Farm is an exceptional detached family property with period origins set in beautiful grounds, in a peaceful rural position approximately one mile from the popular village of Ropley, just within the South Downs National Park. The property is approached through a five bar gate to a large parking and turning area in front of the double garage at the side of the house. A pathway leads up to the front door of the property.

    Accessed through an attractive reception lobby, a door opens up into the reception hall with a staircase to the first floor. Access from here to the drawing room, dining room, kitchen, cloakroom and out onto the rear terrace. The drawing room is a very good size with a large feature open fireplace, double doors leading out to the back of the house and a single door leading out to the rear terrace. From the drawing room a door leads through to the study. The dining room is particularly attractive with ceiling timbers and feature fireplace, a perfect room for evening entertaining. The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted, benefiting from a range of fitted base and eyelevel units with work surfaces over, integrated appliances and a fitted AGA. An archway leads through to a good sized breakfast room off which is the sitting room. A utility room and second cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor there is a large open landing, which could form part of the principal bedroom suite which is the only room that has been accessed from it, giving it great scope to become a luxurious dressing room. The principal bedroom is 29' 2” x 15' 5”, with double doors opening out onto the balcony and there is also a bathroom dedicated to this room. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    The property is approached from the village lane through a 5-bar gate into a large parking and turning area in front of the garaging.

    The formal gardens are stunning with beautiful rural views and extend all to approximately 2.35 acres. The previous owner, a former professional market gardener, has tended to the property over the years creating a stunning environment with a wealth of mature and specimen trees, beautiful flowering shrubs and plants, extensive rockeries and architectural features created to further enhance the wonderful location of this property. Lawns lead down to an attractive pond with the surrounding grounds under-planted with spring bulbs. A stone built folly to enclose the compost makes for an interesting feature at the bottom of the garden.

    There are two superb outbuildings, a large detached double garage and a large barn with adjoining greenhouse, with separate oil-fired boiler.

    The barn may be converted into additional accommodation, subject to the necessary planning permissions and consents. It currently comprises three rooms, a workshop and two large stores, each workshop with double doors leading out onto the garden.
