    The floorplans offer an excellent overview of the full layout; the accommodation is arranged over two floors, with features including engineered oak flooring, porcelain tiles, full height sliding glass doors to all rooms on the south-facing elevation, framing the striking views.

Integrated appliances include Bosch ovens, wine fridge, induction hob with extractor over and a dishwasher; there is a utility room and a boot room with plumbing for washing machine.

    A study/bedroom five lies to the front of the house, and a shower room completes the ground floor.

    Cedar House is approached by a driveway leading to a parking area for several cars and an attached double garage with boarded loft area. The property is set in landscaped gardens, with mature oak trees, planted with shrubs and trees. Adjoining the rear of the house is a raised wooden deck with steps down to the lawn, offering a delightful outside seating area overlooking the garden and taking full advantage of the wonderful views to the South Downs. The garden can be accessed from the side of the house via a gate and is fully enclosed by panelled and post and rail fencing.
