The property, which is believed to date back to the 16th century is Listed Grade II and has recently gone through a complete renovation by the current owners. From the materials that have been used, to the care that has been taken, all works have been finished to the highest of standards, making the most of the fantastic original features of the cottage and beautifully reflecting the sense of calm that surrounds it. Glasshouse feels warm and welcoming from the moment you enter. There is a central hallway leading through to the custom-made kitchen with light coloured brick herringbone flooring, a fantastic electric Thornhill cooker with two hotplates and a ceramic hob as well as a wood burner compartment for cold winter days. There is a range of storage units under solid wooden worktops, a double ceramic butler sink and integrated appliances. A door leads to the gardens with a path to the vegetable patch and greenhouse as well as to the paved South facing terrace. The kitchen is open to the dual aspect dining room, again with herringbone brick flooring. The sitting room has original floor boards, exposed beams and an impressive inglenook fireplace and an area with built in shelves that could be used as a separate study/library. Two doors lead to the garden from the sitting room. A cloakroom and utility room with space for washing machine and dryer completes the ground floor. Stairs with a split landing lead to two bedrooms and a family bathroom to one side of the property, and the other side to the spacious vaulted main bedroom which is dual aspect, has a separate dressing area and a bathroom en suite with free standing roll top bath and separate walk-in shower. The detached wood clad barn annexe is tucked well away from the house and would make the ideal Airbnb or guest accommodation. It has a vaulted living area with woodburning stove and free standing roll top bath, a mezzanine sleeping area and a cloakroom. There is gas fired heating. Outside is wooden decking overlooking the pretty woodland and orchard, the perfect spot to soak up the beautiful surroundings. Gardens and Grounds Glasshouse is a tranquil haven, tucked away down a track within the South Downs National Park and set within its own 8.74 acres of truly magnificent land including paddocks/ wildflower meadows, woodland and inner gardens with a wonderful mature orchard, vegetable patch and pretty cottage style gardens. The property is approached over a drive and large parking area, next to the paddocks and double garage, built of brick and with up and over doors. A paved path leads through the inner gardens to the property. There are mature flower beds, shrubs and trees throughout the gardens, all kept in a beautiful informal style, creating plenty of interest and a real sense of relaxed charm. The orchard has a large variety of mature fruit trees including many apple varieties and a medlar tree. Tucked away under the branches is an open wood store which would lend itself beautifully to being an outdoor seating area. There are two vegetable patches with handmade wooden fence around and one has polytunnel/greenhouse. Many herbs intersperse pathways and flower beds, further creating interest as well as a haven for wildlife. Surrounding the plot are plenty of mature trees including the woodland which has a small stream running through it.
