A large family house full of character and historic features with attractive south facing garden on the edge of an active village and set in the South Downs National Park. Ground Floor: Entrance hall, Dining room, Sitting room, Drawing room, Kitchen/breakfast room, Study, Cloakroom, Utility room, Larder, Integral garage First Floor: Master bedroom with bathroom en suite, 3 double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom, 2 family bathrooms Gardens and Grounds: Detached bothy with gardener's WC and two large store areas, Gardens of about 0.9 acres (0.36 hectares), Shared courtyard with parking for several cars, Spinney amounting to approximately 0.051 acres (0.02 hectares), In all approximately 1.01 acres (0.41 hectares) The Property Originally dating from the 16th and 17th Centuries, Old Fyning House is an extremely handsome Grade II* Listed house attached to the later Georgian wing of Fyning House. The property has been in the same ownership for 35 years and could now benefit from some updating. Built of brick with part tile hung elevations beneath a clay tiled roof, the property has retained many period features including exposed beams, parquet wood flooring and impressive fireplaces. Of particular note there is a fire mark, which likely dates from the 18th Century, which is on the external wall facing the central courtyard. The house faces south with views over the gardens and glimpses of the South Downs beyond. The house benefits from large, elegant Georgian windows which allow the southerly sun to enter all principal rooms on the ground floor which each offer generous proportions. Accessed from the entrance hall is a sitting room with a large fireplace (currently decorative) and a cloakroom. The impressive, dual aspect dining room has parquet wood flooring, a dramatic open fireplace (currently decorative) and a beamed double height ceiling, with a minstrel's gallery. There is a small adjoining room which is now used as a study. The drawing room is also dual aspect. It has a woodburning stove and features large Georgian windows and a door opening onto the attractive formal lawns. The kitchen/breakfast room features a beautiful, large rounded window overlooking the garden, and parquet wood flooring. The integral garage is accessed from the kitchen and drawing room via a lobby. Also from the kitchen an elegant old wooden door leads to the attached, external utility room and larder. On the first floor, the landing incorporates a characterful minstrel's gallery which overlooks the dining room below. The spacious master bedroom has built in storage and a bathroom en suite. There are three further generous and characterful double bedrooms and one single bedroom which benefit from the use of two family bathrooms. The single bedroom adjoins the master bedroom, which is separated from the three double bedrooms by a stretch of landing, and could create a substantial master suite with dressing room, if desired. Gardens and Grounds Old Fyning House is accessed over a shared driveway which leads to an attractive, paved central courtyard shared by a warm and well established community with dedicated parking in the courtyard, next to the drive and in the car port for several cars. There is also a generous sized garage with capacity for substantial storage. When the properties that made up the Fyning Manor Estate were split, care was taken to ensure that each property enjoyed a great amount of privacy and although attached to Fyning House, the two houses face in different directions, and the south facing gardens are not overlooked. The rear of the house overlooking the garden is most attractive, with historic brickwork adorned with a mature wisteria. The south facing garden of 0.9 acres is a particularly attractive feature of the property. There are two main areas of garden to the rear of the house; a large area of formal lawn immediately adjacent to the house offering excellent entertaining space and another area of more informal garden beyond. There is also a topiary walkway created from sculpted Yew hedging which formed part of the original Fyning Estate. There is an additional small spinney, bordering the main road, which is owned by Old Fyning House. The Bothy Conveniently located adjacent to Old Fyning House is a detached Bothy. The building comprises a large room, currently used for storage, a generous garden store and a gardener's WC. Subject to planning consent, the Bothy offers great potential for a studio annexe or home office to overlook the garden.
