Characterful Grade II Listed Mill House.
Chantry Mill represents a beautifully restored family home that once operated as a water mill with its own charming mill pond within superb private grounds at the foot of the South Downs.
The property dates back, we understand, to the 16th Century with later additions from both the Georgian and Victorian era providing benefits such as sash windows and well-proportioned reception rooms.
The property consists of the main house itself with an adjoining entrance at ground floor level to the Mill House which acts as secondary accommodation. There is an abundance of original elements throughout, such as the inglenook fireplace in the main house and rooms that feature exposed beams. The ground floor has a range of comfortable reception rooms from the cosy, beamed sitting room to the spacious, vaulted dining room and the elegant drawing room as well as access to two separate cellars.
The first floor of the main house features four double bedrooms with two bathrooms, one ensuite as well as a raised den. The Mill House offers a ground floor bedroom leading to the first floor with its own independent kitchen, bathroom and sitting room, on the second floor is a bedroom and bathroom and an open plan, vaulted living room with log burner that could double as further bedroom accommodation.
The Mill House has a separate gas boiler with two ground floor store rooms and cloakroom creating the possibility for further accommodation if required.
Gardens and Grounds
The house sits centrally within its plot with the enchanting millpond towards the southern boundary and the property's woodland beyond. Accessed via an electric five bar gate into a large parking area flanked by a Sussex tumbling bay from the mill pond and a stone built double garage, the house and garden offer a selection of patios and decks perfect for alfresco dining and there is a wonderful swimming pool which has recently been further enhanced by the current owner incorporating the addition of a timber pool house. Further buildings include an old stable block now used for storage and in all the grounds extend to approximately 4 acres.
Note: Running to the east of the fenced boundary but on land owned by the property is a public footpath. This is not visible to or from the house.

With easy access to the South Downs Way, the ability to walk into town and the most gorgeous house and grounds I think Chantry Mill would make the most complete family home or retreat for the holidays and weekends.James Machell
