About Homes Estate Agents Liphook
The Homes’ Liphook office is firmly established as the most progressive estate agent in the area. Residential sales from here are handled by the area sales team, based in Grayshott, who work between the two offices on a daily basis. This gives the enlarged and dedicated Regional Lettings team more space in Liphook to provide vital services to landlords and tenants alike across the wider area.
Under Regional Manager, Ben Moore, the sales team offers the full range of residential sales services and you can be assured that there’s little they don’t know about the area. Our Sales Manager, Tom Cann is supported by Senior Client Advisor Sally Sanders and Client Advisor Leo Sergiou. There is also a dedicated Sales Progression service for Liphook and Grayshott customers managed by Ellie Kavanagh.
The Liphook office is in a classically elegant Georgian building in The Square, on the London Road, which we painstakingly restored to its former glory before occupying it – you can’t miss it!
The village and its surroundings are in a glorious part of north east Hampshire, benefitting from plenty to do on the doorstep, with great direct rail and road links to London and the south coast. It’s one of the up and coming hotspots!
So pop in for a chat – you can be assured of a really warm welcome!

The opening of the Hindhead tunnel in 2011 was a game-changer for this heavily wooded, eastern pocket of Hampshire, making a significant difference to travelling times on the London to Portsmouth A3. The area has always been regarded as a well-kept secret … something which the locals have been quite keen to maintain! However, many home hunters form outside the patch, are increasingly twigging that they can swap a slightly longer commute, by road or rail, for substantially more house, plus they get all the benefits of the outstanding surrounding countryside.
Although its origins go back to the 13th Century, the first named records appeared some 300 years later when Sir Edmund Pakynham inherited a tenement and land in ‘Lepoke’ in 1527 and John Hooke bought the manor of ‘Chiltle’ in ‘Lippuck’ in 1591.
Liphook really developed during the 18th century as a coach stop between Portsmouth and London, although the wooded location made coach services a target for highwaymen. Later the surrounding landscape provided inspiration for the author Flora Thompson, who lived in Liphook from 1916-28 as her husband was the postmaster here. She went on to write her trilogy Lark Rise to Candleford, evoking a pastoral idyll.
The village of Liphook is a really well cared for, adorned by floral displays, planned and planted by ‘Liphook in Bloom’ volunteers. Local amenities include a bakery, ironmongers, doctors’ surgery and some highly rated junior, pre-prep and state secondary schools. For downtime, there are some great pubs, two golf courses and two health club spas. To add more surprises to what’s on offer locally, it even has its own working steam museum at Hollycombe with a steam railway and Edwardian fairground.
