Unrivalled views in all directions
Occupying a wonderful position within a small hamlet at the top of the South Downs at Truleigh Hill, Summersdeane Farm is an idyllic smallholding presenting an extremely rare opportunity to restore or redevelop this charming rural property to its former glory.
There is a rear garden with a garage and various outbuildings with 2 stables and a tack room, previously used for the rearing of livestock and wild fowl, which have potential for alternative uses subject to necessary consents. To the north of the farmhouse lies around 11.5 acres of pasture within which lies a former ménage.
There is a separate barn and stabling, extending to over 1,000 sq.ft, making Summersdeane ideal for the keeping of horses. The spectacular 360 degree views from the property cannot adequately be described and are a must-see'.
Summersdeane Farmhouse is a light and spacious detached dwelling originally built as a pair of cottages circa 1950. Entrance is via the conservatory to the front door that leads to an entrance hall from which there is good size sitting room and a large kitchen/breakfast. In addition, there is a study, utility room, cloakroom and walk-in store on the ground floor.
On the first floor there is a landing off which lie six bedrooms, those on the south-side having the benefit of the views. There is a bathroom, a WC with plumbing for shower or bathroom facilities and a walk-in airing cupboard housing the mains gas boiler.
The attic is spacious, giving potential for conversion subject to necessary consents.
Summersdeane Farmhouse requires modernisation throughout and presents a rare opportunity to renovate or redevelop into a truly spectacular family home, the likes of which seldom come to the market.
To the rear to the farmhouse, within its curtilage, lie a range of buildings that have been previously used in the running of the smallholding to rear livestock and wildfowl. These buildings include 2 stables and a tack room and have potential for alternative uses subject to necessary consents.
To the west of the farmhouse is an agricultural and equestrian building which includes three stables along with a tractor/storage barn. There is also a disused menage and the footprint of a yard of former pole barns.
The agricultural and equestrian building with stables, and assorted additional buildings extend to around 2,985 sq.ft in total.
The property extends to approximately 11.96 acres in total and is predominantly pasture and is the process of partial rewilding however it could be returned to productive pasture should a prospective purchaser wish to do so or could be incorporated into an interesting environmental project complimenting the Beeding Hill to Newtimber Hill SSSI which adjoins the Summersdeane land to the north.
