Charming detached house in a lovely rural position with annexe and swimming pool.
Little Hackmans is a most attractive house, located at the foot of the South Downs in a sought-after position in Plumpton. The property has partially tile hung and brick elevations under a tiled roof, and the original portion is believed to date from the early twentieth century. The property was acquired by the current owners about 25 years ago, and over time has been extended to create a much loved and comfortable home offering a wealth of charm and character and being well-suited to family life. The house offers scope for updating, and potential for further extension, subject to the necessary consents; there is lapsed planning permission to further extend the ground floor.
The floorplans, together with the accommodation list, give an excellent overview of the full layout and extent of the property; points of particular note include the family room which has French doors to the eastern terrace, farming the lovely views across the pool, and internal double doors to the dining room, which can be opened up to create a wonderful space for entertaining. There are four bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and one with access to the spacious south facing balcony, which has space for table and chairs and is a lovely spot to sit and enjoy the tranquil views across the surrounding countryside. There are two further bedrooms and family bathroom; the principal house is complemented by a detached outbuilding comprising ground floor games room with a first floor one bedroom flat.
The house is approached from Plumpton Lane by two five bar gates which open to the driveway and the outbuilding; steps and a path flanked by rose bushes leads up to the house, with a plethora of delightful climbing plants on each elevation. The gardens surround the house, with a part decked, part paved terrace wrapping the south and east elevations and the heated swimming pool, beyond which is an expanse of lawn, with fruit trees planted. The gardens and grounds extend to just under half an acre.

This house is so appealing, it's in a lovely location just steps away from one of my favourite pubs and the pool is one the most inviting I have seen.Hannah Riches
