LOCATION Steep Marsh is set along several country lanes and forms a collection of rural hamlets, one mile to the north of Sheet which has a church, popular village school and three pubs including the charming Harrow which is a short walk along the Kettlebrook from Home Cottage. Petersfield with its comprehensive range of facilities, including Waitrose and a mainline station is 2.3 miles away. There is also an excellent range of schools locally including Bedales, Churcher's College, Ditcham Park and Highfield at Liphook, with many other state owned and independent schools in the area.

The A3 provides good regional transport links to the South Coast and M25 beyond. The larger county centres of Guildford and Chichester are all within reasonable driving distance, as are the harbours, beaches and creeks of the South Coast.

The property sits in the heart of the South Downs National Park with extensive recreational and leisure activities and much of the surrounding countryside is crisscrossed by footpaths and bridleways including the Hangers Way nearby. The network of local lanes also provides great cycling routes.

OUTSIDE The property is approached through a five bar gate and a sweeping driveway leads up to a large turning and parking area adjacent to the front door of the property. The garden is mostly situated to the south and west of the house offering various areas, including a vegetable garden, a partly walled garden and lovely, formal gardens housing specimen trees, flowers and well stocked beds, principally laid to lawn part of which is governed by an agricultural restriction, with lovely views towards the distant Hangers. In all the gardens extend to about 0.946 acres (0.383 ha).
