About this property

  • Keepers represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a part tile hung detached cottage with the most stunning downland views. Formerly two gamekeepers cottages reputed to date from the late 1800's and having undergone a conversion to one dwelling some time ago with a substantial extension in the 1950s. The property has been in the ownership of the family for over 40 years and is now being offered to the market with an opportunity to further enhance and update.

    Offering balanced accommodation, there are two good living areas together with a conservatory, kitchen and a cloakroom on the ground floor. The first floor accommodates a principal bedroom with an en suite bathroom and there are three further bedrooms served by a family bathroom. Every room enjoys the stunning backdrop of the South Downs.

    The setting is a particular feature of the property, situated off a country lane and accessed over a long private track, the drive opens to a clearing from the wooded approach to provide the most glorious vista from the house and its established lawned gardens. Framed with hedging and mature trees, with areas of level lawn leading to the detached outbuildings comprising a brick and tiled detached cottage offering ancillary accommodation opportunities if desired. There is a double garage plus additional parking for a number of vehicles. There is an area of mature mixed woodland with beds of bluebells in the spring and offering privacy to relax in this most idyllic of settings.

    In all the grounds amount to approximately 2 acres.

    Please note there are no public footpaths or bridleways traversing any of the land.
