A period cottage in a lovely spot on the edge of the village
THE PROPERTY Steep Cottage is an attractive period property dating we believe from the late Victorian period and originally believed to have been an Oast house, with more recent additions, in a picturesque setting on the edge of the village with attractive views over open countryside to the Hangers. A partially walled rear garden is also a significant feature. The house is currently offered with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is on the ground floor, together with a sitting room, dining room, kitchen and utility room. We do believe there is scope to enlarge the house subject to the necessary consents. In all an attractive period cottage in a great setting and an early appointment to view is strongly recommended.
OUTSIDE A drive leads down to a parking area and in one corner there are two garages. The gardens are mainly to the rear of the cottage with open areas of lawn and some mature trees and shrubs and they total 0.41 acres in all. There is also a greenhouse and garden shed.
LOCATION The property lies on the edge of Steep which is a highly sought after village about 1 mile from Petersfield and is probably best known as the home of Bedales School. The village also has a thriving primary school, tennis and cricket clubs as well as two pubs, with The Cricketers just a short walk from the house. Petersfield has a comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose and a mainline station with train services to London Waterloo in just over an hour. The area is particularly blessed with an excellent range of schools including Bedales as already mentioned, Churchers College, Ditcham Park and in the state sector TPS and Bohunt. The A3 at Petersfield provides good regional transport links to the M25 and beyond and the larger centres of Winchester, Guildford and Chichester are all within reasonable driving distance, as are the harbours and creeks of the South Coast. There are a number of good footpaths and bridleways in the surrounding area including the South Downs Way, Hangers Way and Sussex Border Path.
Services: Mains water and electricity, shared private drainage, oil fired boiler providing hot water and central heating via radiators.
