Description:

A surprisingly spacious period cottage in a great setting on the edge of Steep

THE PROPERTY Island Croft is that rare thing, looking like a cottage from the outside, but with great internal space, well proportioned rooms and good ceiling heights, having the feeling of a much larger house than it is. The accommodation includes a master bedroom with adjacent dressing room and there is potential within this space to create an ensuite shower room and then there are two further large bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the ground floor there is a lovely large sitting room and a big dining room linking to the kitchen. A study and utility room are also provided and adjacent to the house there is the studio which is suitable for a wide variety of uses including a separate fun area for children if required. This property is a real gem and needs to be viewed to be truly appreciated.

OUTSIDE A gravel drive leads up to a parking area with space for numerous cars and adjacent to this is the studio building. At the bottom of the drive approached via another access is the single garage. There is a large front garden made up of terrace with pergola, extensive herbaceous borders and an area of lawn and to the rear there is then a further area of garden with another terrace adjacent to the house, lawns and then woodland behind. The grounds as a whole total about 0.3 acres.

LOCATION Steep is a highly sought after village under 2 miles from Petersfield and is probably best known as the home of Bedales School. Apart from Bedales, the village has a thriving primary school, tennis and cricket clubs as well as 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.
