About this property

  • Understood to date from 1970, Sundown is a well-proportioned modern house in the popular village of Newick, benefitting from a south-facing rear garden with some lovely views over adjoining fields to the distinctive ridge of the South Downs in the distance. In need of refurbishment and updating throughout, the house nevertheless offers huge scope for a buyer to redecorate, remodel and/or extend (subject to the necessary consents) and create a super family home in one of the village's premier roads.

    The full extent and layout of the current accommodation can be seen on the floor plan.

Sundown has the potential to be an excellent family home, with bags of scope to evolve as a family grows. I particularly like that it backs onto fields giving the house a lovely countryside feel, yet is within easy reach of the village's many amenities and the primary school is just a stone's throw away.
