A stunning contemporary family house with lovely views to the South Downs
THE PROPERTY Pine Court House is a stunning contemporary family house, built in 2010, making the most of its secluded location on the highly regarded private Island Estate on the edge of Steep, with lovely views to The South Downs. The accommodation is very flexible and at its heart is a fantastic open living space divided into sitting, dining and kitchen areas. There are then three other reception rooms and a utility room on the ground floor and upstairs two suites and three other bedrooms together with a family bathroom. Of particular note is the detached studio building which is suitable for a wide variety of uses and consists of a large main room with then a kitchen and bathroom off. This is a house that has to be viewed to be truly appreciated.
LOCATION Steep is a highly sought after village under 2 miles from Petersfield and is probably best known as the home of Bedales School. The village has a thriving primary school, tennis and cricket clubs as well as The Harrow and The Cricketers Pub. 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 has 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.
OUTSIDE A gravel drive leads into a large parking area and adjacent to this is the studio building and the double garage. The main gardens lie on the southern side with large areas of decking leading to open areas of lawn with a meadow and orchard beyond and a vegetable garden leading to light woodland to one side. There is a garden shed in this area as well. Lovely views to the south over open countryside with The Downs in the distance can be enjoyed from most of the house and garden and the grounds total of about 0.7 of an acre (0.28 ha).
