A fascinating Victorian family house out in the country but also close to Petersfield
THE PROPERTY Tower Cottage is a fascinating detached family house dating we believe from the later part of the 19th Century, offering flexible and well proportioned accommodation. Of particular note are the very good sized principle rooms with high ceilings, combined with the very flexible layout. On the first floor there is a master suite and then three further bedrooms and a family shower room, whilst at one end of the house on the ground floor there is a guest bedroom with ensuite shower room. This area can also be used as a home office. The house enjoys attractive views over its own gardens to open countryside with glimpses of The Hangers beyond.
OUTSIDE A drive leads up to a good sized parking area and attached at one end of the house is the double garage. This is a good length so provides a garden store area to the rear. The house sits in attractive level gardens of about 0.95 acres with open areas of lawn interspersed in places by mature shrub borders. Gardens are mainly bounded by mature hedging and of particular note is the lovely Wellingtonia tree next to the front drive.
LOCATION Steep Marsh is more a group of hamlets than a village, located approximately 1 mile to the North of Sheet which has a church, popular village school and two pubs. Petersfield with its comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose and a mainline station with train services to London Waterloo in around an hour is 2.2 miles away. Petersfield is particularly blessed with an excellent range of schools including Bedales, Churchers College and Ditcham Park and many other state owned and independent schools in the area. The A3 provides good transport links to the M25 and beyond and the regional centres of Winchester, Guildford and Chichester are all within reasonable driving distance, as are the harbours 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 Hanger Way nearby.
