Description

Set in 2.75 Acres. An individual detached house built in 1934 by Frank Duke of traditional construction with brick and part-tile hung elevations under a tiled roof with dormer windows. The house was extended in 1984 and today provides good family accommodation with potential for further enlargement or alteration to outbuildings subject to usual consents. The land has been well managed and the detached workshop has been used for a successful artisan business for many years and is an ideal space for a buyer looking to work from home or perhaps as ancillary accommodation for a dependent relative. The house is double glazed with photovoltaic roof panels and enjoys some fine views across open farmland to the ridge of the South Downs.

The property occupies grounds extending to approximately 2.75 acres with a driveway bisecting the land. The gardens are contained by post-and-rail fencing with established planting including two walnut trees. The house is flanked by two fields, with a small orchard and fenced paddock to the south. Garden store of timber-frame construction under a clay-tiled roof.

Outbuildings:
Four-bay pole barn 48' x 22'4" (14.84m x 6.82m) clad in corrugated iron.
Detached workshop/studio 35'9" x 19'4" (10.89m x 5.9m) An attractive timber-clad building, originally stables, with power and light connected; pitched and tiled roof.
Pair of prefabricated garages and concrete hard-standing.
West field with original brick-built pump house.
East field adjoining open farmland with wonderful views to the ridge of the Downs.

Note: The driveway is subject to a right-of-way which gives access to the neighbouring property.
