Hog Lane, Amberley, Arundel, West Sussex BN18 9NQ

Offers In Excess Of £925,000

A fine period home with stunning views across the Wildbrooks Nature Conservation Area, situated in the centre of this quintessential English downland village, in the heart of the South Downs National Park.

The Thatched House has been extended and modernised by the present owners, to provide well planned and flexible accommodation. This beautiful family home is full of character and is set in the midst of the much sought after downland village of Amberley in the lea of the South Downs. The house, we believe, dates back to around the 1820's and was originally a beer house, which was closed in 1967 when the landlord Mr Walter Herrington, then aged 86 and having been there for 56 years was deemed to be too old. Friary Meux who owned the property, surrended the licence and Mr Harrington was allowed to stay in the property rent free until alternative accommodation was found. Despite its name, the house is not thatched but instead takes its name from its former life as a beer house. The original cellar and steps down are still being used to this day and at the bottom of the step there is a dip where the barrels would land and over the years has worn the brick accordingly. The cellar is dry, houses the oil fired boiler and also provides a useful multi-purpose space.

The property benefits from oil fired heating to radiators and some replacement double glazing and some secondary glazed windows. The gardens have been lovingly developed in the last few years by the present owners. There are formal and informal areas, which have been beautifully landscaped and incorporate terracing leading down to the Amberley Wildbrooks.

Briefly the accommodation comprises to the ground floor - Entrance Hall with exposed timbers and stairs to the first floor, Cloakroom, Cellar, Drawing Room with working Adam style feature fireplace, Study, Dining/Family Room leading to Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Rear Hallway, Utility Room, ground floor Shower Room, opening to inter-connecting Guest Suite/Annexe - Open Plan Kitchen/Sitting Room, stairs to Mezzanine Bedroom with built-in wardrobes. Patio doors lead from the Sitting Room to a private area of gravelled garden.

To the first floor there is a large Landing, Master Bedroom Suite with En-suite Bathroom, two further double Bedrooms and a beautifully fitted Family Bathroom with Separate WC.

The property is approached via a five-bar gate which leads onto a gravelled driveway, providing ample off-road parking and leading to a Detached Garage with up-and-over door.

The beautiful mature gardens are a particular feature of this property and have being lovingly created and tendered by the current owners. There are a wonderful array of elevated terraces, a formal lawn, various patios areas, flower and shrub borders and delicate ornamental hedging, all enjoying stunning views over the Wildbrooks Nature Conservation Area. Winding paths lead down to an impressive vegetable/flower garden with a variety of fruits trees.
