A more extensive range of shops are available in Haslemere and Petersfield.

The A3 is a five minute drive away and provides access to Heathrow, Gatwick and Southampton airports.

The area has an excellent choice of schools, notably Brookham and Highfield at Liphook, St Edmund’s and The Royal Senior and Junior Schools at Hindhead, Churcher’s College and Bedales at Petersfield and Charterhouse at Godalming.

Sporting facilities in the area include racing at Goodwood, polo at Cowdray Park and golf at numerous courses including Liphook, Blackmoor, Hindhead, Petersfield and Cowdray Park. Sailing can be enjoyed on the South Coast, most notably at Chichester Harbour and at Emsworth (about 25 miles away) and riding in the area is first class with tracks over National Trust and common land.  From the property there are rides out over Ludshott Common and on to the Devil’s Punchbowl.

High Hurlands, PassfieldAbout this home

The property offers a unique chance to re-create the perfect small estate with far-reaching south and west-facing views, no footpaths and within 50 miles of Central London.  Positioned close to the borders of three Counties, Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey, High Hurlands is located above the small village of Passfield.  Upon arrival, there is immediately a sense of its commanding position, parkland setting and rural tranquillity.

The main house, High Hurlands, has been a care home and ceased trading in 2022.  In July 2023 permission was granted for change of use to C3 residential (ref 20601/027), however permission has not yet been applied for to renovate or rebuild to create a more modern family home.  There are a number of outbuildings behind the house.

A few hundred yards from High Hurlands lies Badgers Watch, a detached, four-bedroom family home that is currently lived in and would make the perfect residence whilst working on High Hurlands.  Beside the house is a tennis court.

Behind High Hurlands is a detached, three-bedroom bungalow, Panda Cottage that has its own access off the lane.

Permission was granted in July 2023 (ref 20601/029) for the change of use of three agricultural buildings to five residential dwellings.
