Full description

Tucked under the Hangers at historic Ashford Chace, a unique opportunity to create a wonderful country home. The Gatehouse is a single storey dwelling, converted from former stables standing in enchanting gardens which approach an acre in size. The accommodation currently comprises a large reception room, kitchen, family bathroom and two bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite W/C. There is also an undeveloped attached barn offering around 1300 square feet of potential additional living space, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Outside there is a private driveway entrance with ample parking for a number of cars, a large detached garage/ workshop, together with two additional single garages. Located in rural Steep, yet close to Petersfield with all its amenities, this is a property that has to be viewed to fully appreciate the opportunities it presents.



Ashford Chace is a historic country property, nestled beneath the Hangers at Steep and adjacent to The Hangers Way. The village of Steep is a short distance to the north west of the desirable market town of Petersfield. Petersfield offers a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and schooling opportunities, including a twice weekly market held on the town square. There are excellent schools located within the town, such as The Petersfield School, Churcher's College and Bedales. Petersfield also has a mainline railway station on the Portsmouth to London Waterloo line, with trains to the capital taking around an hour.

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.
