About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Prime

Approached via a sweeping private driveway, Dolphin House is a substantial and striking property believed to date to the mid 1920’s. The property retains much of its original character and charm and has well-proportioned reception rooms with good ceiling heights and a wealth of natural light. Possibly the most notable room on the ground floor is the substantial drawing room having the benefit of a set of French doors which open out onto the large south-facing terrace. The well appointed kitchen/breakfast room is well suited for the needs of many families and extends in to the conservatory. To the first floor a large landing leads to the master bedroom being of substantial size and complemented by a large en suite bathroom and a dressing room. A set of doors lead out onto a small balcony which provides a lovely place to sit and take in the stunning views over the mature gardens. A further 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (1 being en suite) extend from the landing with a second staircase to the ground floor.

Situation
Dolphin House occupies a private position within the highly sought-after Durford Wood estate. Durford Wood is situated within the South Downs National Park. The estate is located to the north of Petersfield and is surrounded by breath-taking West Sussex and Hampshire countryside.

Petersfield, which is approximately three miles away, has a mainline station which provides access into London Waterloo in 67 minutes. To the north is the highly desirable market town of Haslemere, which also has a mainline station, providing access into London Waterloo in approximately 56 minutes. To the east is the town of Midhurst and to the south, the cathedral city of Chichester. The A3, which is easily accessed at Petersfield and Liphook provides easy access to the south coast as well as the national motorway network and the international airports of Gatwick, Heathrow and Southampton. Throughout the area is an excellent range of private schools and Sporting facilities are excellent, with racing at Goodwood and Fontwell, Polo at Cowdray Park, sailing at Chichester Harbour as well as golf at Liphook, Hindhead and Cowdray Park.

Outside
The beautiful gardens provide a remarkable degree of privacy and seclusion as well as some stunning colours throughout the seasons. The property is approached via a set of wrought-iron gates leading to a large driveway with a charming central feature to the front of the house and triple garage beyond. Running across the rear of the property is a large flagstone and brick terrace, interspersed with box hedging and lavender, making a perfect venue to entertain during the summer months. The garden planting boasts a wonderful mix of mature shrubs and trees, including an array of rhododendrons as well as some substantial oak trees which add to the charm of the setting. Within the grounds is also a heated swimming pool and hard surface tennis court.
