Built of stone, brick and part tile hung elevations beneath a clay tiled roof, there is a wealth of period features which have been beautifully maintained. Originally dating from the 17th Century, the house has been extended and changed over time with a later 18th Century addition. The sitting room is one of the oldest rooms in the house and is full of character with exposed beams and a wood burning stove. To the rear of the sitting room is a separated study area with access to the cellar. The adjacent drawing room has a more Georgian influence with high ceilings and a large sash window overlooking the garden. All rooms enjoy lovely views over the attractive gardens and the drawing room, dining room, master bedroom and a further bedroom also have distant views to the South Downs. The light kitchen/breakfast room features a bespoke fitted kitchen with an electric AGA, Neff gas hob, Miele combi oven, granite worksurfaces and French doors. There is ample space for a breakfast table and the current owners also have a small seating area. A spacious dual aspect dining room, with parquet wood flooring and a large feature fireplace, and cloakroom with utility complete the ground floor. There are two staircases which lead to the first floor. The spacious master bedroom suite features large sash windows with a south-westerly aspect and elevated views over the garden and beyond to the South Downs. There is a walk through dressing room with ample storage which leads to a generous bathroom en suite with a central free standing roll top bath and twin sinks. There are three further double bedrooms, a shower room and a spacious bathroom with a separate shower. A further staircase leads to the second floor which is currently used as storage, however, there is planning permission to add a dormer window to the south west elevation. A window already exists on the west elevation and the space is substantial enough for two further bedrooms if desired. The Piggery Sympathetically converted by the current owners, the Piggery now offers a substantial self-contained two bedroom annex with vaulted ceilings and exposed oak beams and underfloor heating. Each bedroom is very comfortable and has en suite facilities, one with a bathroom and one with a shower room. The kitchen/ breakfast room has French doors which lead out onto the garden. The sitting room has oak flooring and a glazed gas fireplace. There is further planning permission to extend through bedroom one in the Piggery to the adjoining period store to extend the accommodation further, if desired, to provide a study/studio bedroom with double doors leading onto the courtyard. Gardens and Grounds The gardens are a particular feature of the property. The main house sits well within the centre of the plot with attractive gardens wrapping around three sides of the property. To the original front of the house is a very private, walled garden which is mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and well stocked flower beds. Sculptured box plants are scattered throughout the gardens and line the gravel pathway leading to the lane. The L-shaped house forms a courtyard which has been well planted offering an abundance of colour and texture. A pathway leads to a paved terrace with an attractive converted stone and brick outbuilding which now provides a covered outdoor seating area which can be used year round due to the addition of a wood burning stove. The seating area sheltered by a clay tiled roof is well equipped with electricity. Conveniently located close to the kitchen is a raised vegetable and cutting garden stocked with a prolific supply of produce. The northern section of the garden provides a private walled garden and small orchard which is currently used by the occupants of the Piggery. A vine covered pergola provides shade to a large brick terrace which has an intricate parquet design. There are a range of outbuildings, the most significant being a large period barn which has been compartmentalised to provide a boiler room, large store, bin store and garden tool store.
