DESCRIPTION: The building is understood to date from the early 19th Century. It was converted some years ago to create a bright and airy country home, attached on just one corner, and enjoying a delightful front aspect over the cobbled courtyard approach. Unlike the feel of a cottage, so often associated with this type of conversion, the property has the air of an elegant country house with high ceilings to most of the ground floor and large well proportioned rooms throughout.

The approach from the courtyard is via a panelled front door with canopy porch into a wide entrance hall with staircase at the far end leading upstairs. There is quarry tiled floor, fitted double coats cupboard and a good sized cloakroom recessed on one corner. Small paned glazed double doors lead from the hall into a spacious living room with wide bowed window and further tall window enjoying a courtyard aspect. A further glazed door leads into the bright and airy double aspect kitchen & breakfast room. A casement door with full height side windows opens onto the courtyard, which provides a delightful, suntrap, sitting out area. The kitchen is fitted with a good selection of work surfaces, cupboards and drawers. There is an inset stainless steel sink unit, halogen hob with extractor hood over, built in Neff electric double oven and space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher. A deep built in cupboard houses the oil central heating boiler. In the centre of the quarry tiled floor, a pair of wooden trap doors open up to reveal a wine cellar with steps down. The dining room is approached off the hall and is equally usable as a bedroom/large study. It has a built in cupboard with double doors. The stairs lead up to a quarter landing and a cosy double aspect room currently serving as a study. This has a useful cupboard with built in shelves. The stairs continue up to the first floor, to a bright and airy landing with a wide window over the stairwell. There is a deep airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. The master bedroom is a generous double aspect room with views to Wheatham Hill. There is a range of wardrobes fitted in one corner. The good size fully tiled en suite shower room has an excellent walk-in shower enclosure, w.c. and pedestal wash basin with window above. The second bedroom is a good size double room with fitted wardrobe and a window overlooking the courtyard. The third bedroom is a delightful double aspect room which of late has been used as a spacious first floor drawing room. A focal point is the attractive open fireplace with brick heart. There is a shelved alcove at one end and fitted cupboards. The bathroom is a good size, half tiled, with panel enclosed bath with mixer tap and hand shower, pedestal washbasin, w.c. and roof light.

Outside: Opposite the entrance to the courtyard is a good size single garage with remote controlled up and over door and rear window. The property owns part of the courtyard, providing further parking; and to the side of the courtyard is a wall enclosed shared area where the oil storage tank and bins are located.

No’s 1,2 and 3 Stable Court each own part of the expanse of garden, across Tankerdale Lane. The boundaries of the plots are not marked, and there is the shared commitment amongst the owners to maintain this area as an open visa to the woodland beyond. On the land belonging to No 1 there is a recently constructed workshop and timber summer house Set in beech hedging and laurels forming a private area on the eastern boundary.

Services. Mains water and electricity. Shared private drainage system. An oil fired boiler provides radiator central heating and hot water.

LOCATION: 1 Stable Court forms part of an attractive courtyard development of just four substantial individual properties converted from the stables and coach house to Stodham Park House. It is situated in a peaceful rural setting on the outskirts of Liss and about four miles from Petersfield in the South Downs National Park. Liss village is just over a mile away, with shops for day to day needs, doctor’s surgeries, infants and junior schools and a main line station serving London Waterloo. Petersfield offers more extensive shopping, with supermarkets, banks and various leisure facilities, and another station. The area is noted for its excellent state and private schools, and is renowned for its walking and riding, with miles of footpaths and bridleways. ‘Shipwrights Way’ passes in front of the house, which connects Alice Holt Forest near Farnham in Surrey to the South Coast.
