A charming family home with potential to extend or replace in an unspoilt rural setting yet within easy range of the old market town of Petersfield, with its wide range of local services and mainline station

THE PROPERTY A charming family house in an unspoilt rural setting in need of refurbishment with potential for extension. Available for the first time in over 65 years, the house is approached over a sweeping drive and is well positioned in the heart of a mature garden plot. Inside there are three reception rooms, a dual kitchen, breakfast room and, upstairs, five bedrooms and two bathrooms, many with rural aspects. The house is not Listed.

OUTSIDE The house has a turning and parking area in front of the house and is positioned in established garden and grounds which are well arranged around the house. Mature hedges, shrubs and trees provide privacy and structure.

Essentially the garden is mainly set to lawn, under planted with a profusion of spring bulbs which provide seasonal colour. To the rear is an old orchard area. Overall this is a wonderful space for children to free-range in, explore or for any keen gardener to enjoy. In all about 1.6 acres (0.66ha).

Adjoining the rear garden and separately accessed from the lane is an area of pasture, woodland and a section of the Ashford stream which is available by separate negotiation and extends to about 4.82 acres (1.95 ha).

LOCATION Steep village lies on the lower edge of the Ashford Hangers in the heart of the South Downs National Park. It has its own primary school, a flourishing village hall and lovely old church. Central to the village is Bedales School, which is within country walking distance, as are the extensive local walks (including the Hangers Way) via a wide network of footpaths accessing the surrounding countryside. The well-regarded Steep Tennis Club is within a short stroll, as is the cricket club and renowned local pub The Harrow Inn.

The village is close to the old market town of Petersfield with a mainline station (to London Waterloo) and its wide range of shopping, recreational and cultural amenities. Private and state schooling choices include The Petersfield School and Churcher's College in the town.

The A3 provides good regional transport links to Guildford, the M25 and London and to the south, the coastal city of Portsmouth with its ferry port. The other regional centres of Winchester and Chichester are all within reasonable driving distance, as are the harbours, beaches and creeks of the South Coast.
