Enchanting rural idyll in 35 acres with far reaching views
Coming to the market for the first time in over fifty years, the Pigeon Hill estate presents an exciting and rare opportunity to acquire a slice of quintessential Sussex countryside, in a highly sought after and tranquil location.
The primary residence is known as Pigeon Hill Farmhouse a charming stone built farm house with an adjoining traditional agricultural barn, cart shed and stabling. Of particular note is the stone built barn, which has potential for conversion subject to obtaining the relevant permissions. The property is in need of complete refurbishment, and will require a new central heating system along with a comprehensive upgrading of all services, subject to obtaining the relevant consents. The current accommodation comprises 4 bedrooms, bathroom, three reception rooms and a kitchen. The house retains many period features including beams and inglenook fireplaces.
The secondary property, known as The Lair, is a cottage with accommodation consisting of two bedrooms, sitting room, bathroom and kitchen. The Lair is set within its own gardens, with a detached garage and is accessed via a track which runs past Pigeon Hill Farmhouse. The view from The Lair is particularly impressive and extends to the South Downs.
Both houses sit within approximately 35 acres of land, which is primarily paddocks with post and rail fencing, 5 acres of which is situated to the north of the driveway/track. There is a small copse area opposite the main farmhouse which has been maintained and coppiced over the years, providing a haven for wildlife. The views from the most elevated part of the land are spectacular, and the majority of the plot offers a high degree of seclusion and privacy. The land would be ideally suited to equestrian use, providing ample space for horses or other forms of grazing.

This is an incredibly rare opportunity to create a dream home with breathtaking views which are, in my opinion, among the finest in West Sussex.Sophie Richardson
