THE PROPERTY

Bought by the present owners in 2020, the property has undergone a comprehensive program of restoration creating a highly adaptable home of style and character in this beautiful area of the South Downs National Park. Double gates open onto a long tree lined driveway leading to a courtyard style approach, with the cottage to the west and the barn studio to the east. Directly in front, this stunning 17th Century house has a classic three bay facade with decorative knapped flint and stonework in a distinctive checkered pattern. The dining hall provides a suitably spacious reception area leading through to a large sitting room of nearly 23 ft in length, having double doors opening west onto a sheltered terrace and gardens beyond. The partially vaulted kitchen/family room provides an ideal informal area for everyday family living with a stylish contemporary kitchen including a good range of integrated appliances and polished stone worksurfaces with breakfast bar. A garden lobby beyond provides a useful changing area and storage for muddy boots and shoes whilst the adjacent utility room keeps the white goods away from the main living areas. The generous bedroom accommodation includes two ground floor bedroom suites each with their own sleek contemporary shower rooms whilst on the first and second floors there are three further bedrooms each with their own shower or bathrooms. Five bedroom suites in all. To the west of the house lies the cottage providing completely self-contained accommodation, yet again finished to a high standard combining modern design with the building's original character. A vaulted sitting room with exposed beams has double doors opening west onto a terrace with open views to the neighbouring paddock whilst an impressive brick chimney breast and fireplace with wood burner create an attractive focal point. The kitchen/dining room beyond has also retained its vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and is equipped with a well-appointed contemporary kitchen and integrated appliances. Three bedroom suites, all with either their own shower room or bathroom, enjoy views over either the gardens or courtyard approach. The car port immediately adjacent provides covered parking together with an open fronted barn style garage immediately to the left of the entrance. The recently restored barn studio is a particular feature being nearly 60 ft in length with bi-folding doors opening west onto the courtyard, further double doors onto the garden and benefits from an acoustic ceiling. This is an ideal space for entertaining or recreation perhaps suitable as a studio, gym or function room. Outside The long tree lined approach ensures that the property is set well back. One of the most attractive aspects of its setting is that the house lies very much within its own grounds, surrounded by well-established gardens, a small orchard and paddock to the west. West facing terraces serve both the house and cottage and are easily maintained with sweeping lawns, many attractive mature trees and impressive views over the surrounding farmland.
