This Georgian-style house for sale comes with a Victorian water garden and sits in an “enchanting” valley.  

The Waterhouse, in Steep, is a country house built in the Georgian style in 2010, approached via a private lane through a wooded copse.

The reception hall has a glass-paned water feature running through it. (Savills)

The entrance to the home includes a pillared portico and large double doors into the reception hall, which has an atrium feel with full-height glazed vaulted ceilings and a water feature. 

The drawing room includes a stone fireplace and surround, with a glazed wall with doors out to the terrace.

The grounds extend to approximately 3.3 acres, with Ashford Stream running throughout and the Victorian water garden providing attractive features. 

As the stream leads down, the grounds become more wooded, with specimen trees and shrubs.

In the grounds, there is also a detached double garage, and a timber garden store. 

The property is being sold by estate agents Savills for a price of £3,950,000.

Rory McKenzie of Savills commented: “The Waterhouse is a Georgian-inspired country house with Palladian influences and a contemporary finish, set within an incredible secluded Victorian water garden. 

“While the property is located in an enchanting setting within a quiet wooded valley, it is so close to Bedales School and Petersfield.”
