Imposing Georgian town house in central Petersfield location

Oaklea represents a unique opportunity to purchase a home that has been in the same family's occupation since 1910. Whilst retaining many character features the property is now in need of a comprehensive programme of refurbishment and restoration that, once completed, will provide the incoming purchaser with a fabulous and elegant family home. Upon entering the property, the entrance hall leads onto the dining room and the drawing room. Both of these rooms are well proportioned and contain period fireplaces and sash windows to the front of the house. To the rear of the ground floor is a kitchen and adjoining breakfast room with traditional cast iron fireback and grate. A door from this room leads down to a cellar which provides excellent extra storage space. First floor accommodation comprises of four bedrooms and a bathroom. An additional two rooms can be found on the second floor.
Externally, the gardens and grounds are delightful, and a real feature of the property. The immediate walled garden is a formal arrangement of lawn and beds, with brick paved areas. A stone barn provides a significant additional storage area and has the potential to be converted into a range of uses, such as home office or guest cottage (subject to obtaining the relevant consents). The west end of the barn has most recently been used as a workshop. In addition to the formal gardens there is also an area which was historically used as a railway embankment, and has now become an interesting area of woodland and a useful and intriguing addition to the grounds. To the side of the house is a gated driveway providing parking for several vehicles.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.
