About this property

  • Pear Tree Cottage is an elegant detached house, situated in a rural position with outstanding views across its own garden and the open countryside lying beyond, to the South Downs.

    It is a charming period property, with generously proportioned rooms, good ceiling heights and light accommodation arranged over two floors, and presented in generally good order throughout. Whilst being ideally suited to family life in its current configuration, it also offers an exceptional opportunity to update and extend, with planning permission granted for an impressive two storey extension (see Agent's Notes).

    Lying off the reception hall are two separate reception rooms, a superb drawing room with working fireplace and an elegant curved bay window framing the beautiful views, and a sitting room/playroom. The spacious open plan kitchen/dining room is well-equipped with good range of units, space for a range cooker and granite surfaces; it has two sets of French doors to the south and west facing terrace, and is complemented by a boot room with plenty of fitted storage. A study and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    On the first floor are five bedrooms (one with dressing room and en suite bathroom), a laundry room and a family bathroom.

    Complementing the principal accommodation is a first floor annexe over the garaging, comprising sitting room, bedroom and shower room. The ground floor of this outbuilding is divided into a double garage with electronically operated door, and a separate workshop/studio.

    The garden and, in particular, the setting are a delight; the garden surrounds the house and is mainly laid to lawn, sloping down towards the pond and the water meadow beyond. In all, about 4.8 acres.
