Substantial Grade II listed detached house with outbuildings and paddock in a lovely rural location.
Set in a delightful rural location in the South Downs National Park, Crouchers Farm is a charming Grade II listed farmhouse believed to date from the eighteenth century or earlier, and subsequently extended in the late twentieth century. Today, the property offers well-presented and substantial accommodation extending in all to 3,779 sq ft.
The property has charming red brick and tile hung elevations under a tiled roof, a central open porch and painted wood front door opening to the entrance hall.
The formal dining room has an impressive inglenook fireplace, with cast iron hood and fire basket; also in the older portion of the house is the breakfast room, which is opens to the vaulted farmhouse style kitchen with wood burning stove, solid wood counters, a Rangemaster oven and a breakfast bar.
The kitchen is open to the reception hall, a wonderful vaulted room with a large roof light, forming the link between the original house and the single-storey extension built on the footprint of the old dairy buildings.
A pair of glazed internal doors open to the study, which has French doors to the garden.
The spacious triple aspect sitting room is a superb room, with two sets of French doors to the northern courtyard.
The master bedroom suite is situated on the first floor of the original house, and comprises bedroom with separate bathroom and a dressing room. There is a further bedroom on the second floor.
There are four further bedrooms, two of which are en suite with their own outside access, and a shower room situated on the ground floor.
Please refer to the floorplans, which give an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the accommodation.
Crouchers Farm is approached via electronically operated gates opening to the drive which leads up to the parking, outbuildings and courtyard ahead of the house.
The property offers a good range of outbuildings; a timber framed triple garage and office are complemented by field shelter and a two bay carport attached to a store/kennel and yard.
To the north-west of the house is an enclosed paddock, crossed by a footpath.
The pretty cottage-style front garden has a lawn, with a path to the lane flanked by well-stocked herbaceous beds.
The fully enclosed rear garden has a lovely outlook to the north across open farmland and is mainly laid to lawn, with a charming south-east facing brick paved terrace offering space for table and chairs.
