About this property

  • Built in the 1980s and subsequently extended, Middlehouse is a substantial detached house, offering 2,321 sq ft (including the integral garage) arranged over two floors.

    The ground floor offers well-proportioned reception rooms, with a formal sitting room, a study and an impressive open plan kitchen/ dining room with adjoining family room. The sitting room and the kitchen both have direct access to the decked terrace which spans the rear of the house, creating a good flow between the accommodation and the outside space. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

    One the first floor are four bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a family bathroom. Bedrooms one and two have wonderful views to the South Downs.

    The house is set behind hedging in grounds of about a third of an acre, and approached via five bar gates which open to the spacious driveway offering parking for several vehicles ahead of the house. There is gated access at the side to the rear garden. The garden faces south-east, and the decked terrace spanning the rear elevation provides plenty of space for table and chairs. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and is enclosed by hedging, fencing and stock fencing at the rear to give a wonderful open feel and uninterrupted views.

I really like the open feel the garden has, and the sense of space and proportion the accommodation offers.
