The Property - Lot 1
Squirrels is a privately positioned bungalow with potential to modernise, extend or replace (subject to necessary planning consents) in garden and grounds of some 5 acres with a further 58 acres of broadleaf woodland and pasture available separately. The property will appeal to any nature or wildlife enthusiast and scope for those with equestrian interests given direct access to an adjoining bridlepath and adjacent to Chapel Common and Weavers Down with their miles of natural heathland paths. The additional parcel of woodland and grazing also provides a unique opportunity to retain absolute control of some 63 acres in total.

A five bar gate opens into a short area of gravelled drive with a path to the front door. The garden is a natural wildlife haven mainly around the rear of the property with lawned areas, a disused swimming pool, several banks of Rhododendrons, shrubs and trees which provide a private sheltered environment.

A gate opens from the garden into a large rear paddock which also adjoins an outer area of ground with wildlife pond. Another gate also opens from the paddock onto the adjoining Chapel Common. In all the garden, paddock and boundary woodland extends to about 5.13 acres and provides a fantastic outdoor space for children to free range and enjoy.

The Land - Lot 2
Mixed Amenity Woodland and Pasture Lane 58.53 acres (23.68 ha).

This private and secluded block of land comprises about 45.34 acres of mixed amenity woodland together with some 13.19 acres of currently unmanaged pasture land.

The land lies to the north and east of Squirrels and is accessed either directly from the garden and paddock or from Chapel Common - excellent for walking, bicycling and riding - or through the land jointly owned with three adjoining residential properties providing access for all purposes including farm machinery and equipment, woodland management and nature conservation.

All of the land is registered with the Rural Payments Agency and the pasture is eligible for support payments through the Basic Payment Scheme (bps); all such entitlements will be passed on to the purchaser without additional charge.

The northern boundary of the land is formed by the railway and the southern boundary by Chapel Common and sssi which together offer all the protection needed from unwanted development.

The woodland is classed as mainly Broad-leaved High Forest and comprises three distinct woodland parcels including Broad Copse, Bonny's Copse and Hutfield Copse and is included within a 10-year Woodland Management Plan through to February 2031; tree species include Birch, Beech, Ash, Oak, Hornbeam, Larch, Spruce and Bishop's Pine all of which do well on these free-draining sandy and loamy soils. The course of a Roman Road that crosses the land can be identified in the pasture field and Bonny's Copse.

This secluded and secure block of land lends itself ideally to a wide variety of alternative uses (some subject to planning) including equestrian and cross-country, nursery, small-holding, rewilding, amenity and wildlife habitat and bio-diversity enhancement, recreational uses and occasional glamping and camping.

Lot 1 and Lot 2 combined extends to just over 63 acres (25.5 ha).

Squirrels is situated within the South Downs National Park and is part of a secluded small rural hamlet approached via a series of ancient country lanes and tracks adjoining an untouched landscape of Chapel Common and Weavers Down. It is a unique rural position with neighbouring houses for comfort, yet remarkably convenient for Liphook with its wide range of local shopping facilities and station on the Waterloo/Portsmouth line. More comprehensive facilities are available in either Haslemere or Petersfield and there is a fast train to London from Haslemere. There is a superb choice of both state and private schools in the area including Churcher’s, Highfield, Bedales, Bohunt School and Six Form College at Liphook. The area is noted for its natural beauty with miles of walks or riding from the doorstep over the surrounding countryside with a good network of footpaths/bridleways or cycling along the local lanes. The Serpents Trail, West Sussex Border Path and Shipwrights Way are all within easy reach. An outdoor family paradise where anyone can free range for miles.
