    About this property

    • Built, we understand, in around 1650 with later additions in the 19th and 20th centuries. The property is arranged over two floors with the principal access to the ground floor being on the eastern side of the property. In practice, an entrance on the south side into a boot room then into the kitchen beyond tends to be used on a more regular basis (an alternative entrance is located on the northern side of the house providing direct access from the driveway). The traditional family kitchen features a gas and electric fired range cooker and leads to a utility room located to the rear of the house. The remainder of the ground floor features two charming reception rooms in the form of a dining room and a sitting room with inglenook fireplace housing a log burner. There is a large storage area, cellar and walk in larder.

      To the first floor are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate WC. Of particular note are the two bedrooms to the rear of the property which both enjoy enchanting views over the garden and the South Downs.

      Outside, the established garden features mature trees along the southern boundary with a large lawned area complete with well stocked flower beds throughout. Located opposite to the house on the other side of the road is a studio/workshop with separate garage.
