Full description

This cosy period cottage is set in a delightful semi-rural location and adjacent to Petersfield Golf Course. Built approx. 150 years ago, there is an abundance of character features including exposed beams and fireplaces. The property is offered to the market with no onward chain and has the added benefit of a large rear garden.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises: a charming sitting room with a log burning stove, a dining room, and kitchen with fitted units and integrated oven/hob. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom suite.

Externally there is an area of lawn and useful brick-built store to the front. The generous rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrub borders, along with a log store to far end.



The property is located in the highly sought after hamlet of Steep Marsh, an idyllic rural area, yet close to Petersfield with its varied shopping and leisure facilities. There are also a number of very good schools close by, including Bedales, Churcher's College and The Petersfield School. Petersfield is on the main Portsmouth to London Waterloo line, with the fastest trains reaching the Capital in just 56 minutes and yet is one of the most desirable market towns in the country, surrounded by beautiful countryside and lying wholly within The South Downs National Park.

Why live in Petersfield?

Petersfield often features on lists of the best places to live and work and was recently voted one of the top 10 most desirable market towns in England; The Guardian went so far as to describe Petersfield as ‘a commuter’s Nirvana, the urban equivalent of a foot rub and a G&T’.

We have a delightful choice of properties in the area, from beautiful character cottages, some dating back 500 years, to coach house style homes and large rural retreats to modern family homes. There’s also a thriving rental market here as the convenient location, attractive setting and abundant facilities make this an excellent base for those working in the wider area or simply wanting a perfect place to raise a family.

One of the major attractions for families is the choice of world-class schools – The Petersfield School is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted and Bohunt School at nearby Liphook is one of the top performing state schools in the country. In the private sector, Churcher’s College and Bedales are located in the town, while Ditcham Park School is just to the southeast.

We have cosmopolitan range of shops, restaurants and cafés, with most major retailers represented. The Petersfield Market is held twice a week in The Square and a Hampshire Farmer’s Market is held on the first Sunday of every month. We also have many sports facilities, including two golf clubs, the Taro Leisure Centre and the Petersfield Open Air Swimming Pool, which, despite being open to the elements, is always heated to an average of 27 degrees.

But what really sets Petersfield apart is the beautiful countryside and its pretty villages. These include Selborne with its post office, primary school and choice of two pubs, Steep Village, which sits on wooded slopes known as The Hangers and was once home to Sir Alec Guinness, Buriton Village, which sits between Petersfield and the Queen Elizabeth Country Park and Rogate and Rake to the east within in the Rother Valley.
