A fantastic family house in a great setting on the edge of the village
PROPERTY The house sits in a fantastic position on the edge of this highly regarded village with views over the surrounding Downland, whilst being within a couple of minutes' walk of the heart of the village. The house offers extremely well proportioned bright and airy accommodation on three floors, having been sympathetically extended and upgraded about 10 years ago. The accommodation provides a lot of flexibility with five reception rooms and a great kitchen/breakfast room. One to be viewed to be truly appreciated.
OUTSIDE A gravel drive leads to a good sized parking area and adjacent to this are the outbuildings. There is a two bay car barn with workshop to one side and with a loft room over and a log store to one side. Further down the drive there is a further double garage building currently used as a garden store. Surrounding the house are attractive formal gardens with terraces in places adjoining the house, with areas of lawn and herbaceous borders. The gardens are partially walled. Beyond the formal gardens there is a paddock together with an orchard and vegetable growing area with two greenhouses and a further large barn. The grounds total 2.32 acres.
