Stunning barn conversion in spectacular rural setting
Butterlees Barn is a tasteful conversion of a classic Sussex brick and flint farm building, with a separate guest cottage known as "The Byre". Natural light is in abundance, with the barn characterised by high ceilings and large windows, enjoying glorious views across the grounds to neighbouring farmland. It gives a real feeling of an outside-in property.
The open plan reception area has a vaulted ceiling, an inset woodburning stove with custom polished concrete hearth and oak beam over, and glazed doors opening onto the south facing courtyard. The bespoke kitchen is well-appointed, fully equipped with a central island, granite worktops, ample storage, wine fridge and adjacent utility room. Steps lead up to the spacious dining room with bi-fold doors opening onto the dining terrace and gardens beyond.
An open staircase rises from the principal reception to a mezzanine study area, then onwards to the main bedroom suite with walk-in wardrobe, en suite with monsoon shower, and a stunning vista facing east to the sunrise. A further three bedrooms and two bathrooms complete the ground floor accommodation of the main barn.
The Byre guest cottage is a versatile dwelling of much character. The main room comprises a good size sitting room with exposed beams and feature woodburning stove, kitchenette, and sliding doors opening onto the enclosed courtyard. Further on, a spacious shower room can be found, and a comfortable double bedroom, currently utilised as a gym. The Byre has independent access and parking, plus direct access to the courtyard garden. Well placed for events at Goodwood, Chichester and the beaches at the Witterings, The Byre has consent for holiday letting, if required.
The gardens have been beautifully landscaped with wide, level lawns and terraces, taking advantage of the surrounding views. Raised, well-stocked beds and mature trees provide colour throughout the year and there are numerous seating areas for relaxing or al-fresco dining.
There is a substantial triple garage comprising two open bays and an additional enclosed bay, with extensive storage over. The driveway provides ample parking for vehicles when entertaining and there is a separate gate in the adjacent paddock for gardener's access.
In all the grounds extend to approximately an acre.

Butterlees Barn is simply delightful. Beautifully interior designed with flexible accommodation - I particularly love the open aspect over fields to the rear.Sophie Richardson
