About this property

  • Downsview is a beautiful, Grade II Listed character cottage on the edge of the village of Duncton that enjoys sensational views across adjoining farmland while being a mere 1.5km from the foot of the South Downs which, themselves, create a beautiful backdrop for the village as a whole. The property itself combines rendered, brick and stone-built exteriors, showcasing its original charm.

    On entering the cottage via the gabled porch, there is a characterful sitting room complete with a beamed ceiling and a brick-built fireplace that houses a log burning stove. A door leads to the kitchen, equipped with a range of units and under-stair larder. The ground floor also offers a dining room with terrace and garden access and a dual-aspect family room, also with access to the terrace. A family shower room and a boiler room complete the ground floor layout. On the first floor, are three double bedrooms. The principal bedroom is well-proportioned and features a brick fireplace. The first floor also includes a family bathroom.

    The property enjoys a private driveway to the front of the cottage, providing ample parking where there is also a charming rose garden with white picket fencing. The spacious garden predominantly consists of a well-maintained lawn, well-stocked herbaceous borders, mature trees and hedging that create a real feature for the property as a whole. Additionally, there is a separate potting shed and a workshop/garden store.

Downsview is a well located cottage that enjoys a wonderful outlook while enjoying immense character and charm. I love the garden which is of a generous size and benefitting from several beautiful flower beds.
