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.
Unique Country Home
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.
