DRESCRIPTION: A rare opportunity to purchase a beautiful example of a most charming detached character family home located abutting the South Downs. This wonderful period home has 4 bedrooms and the added benefit of a 5 th bedroom which forms part of the attached annexe that has both an internal and separate front entrance. The extensive sized gardens have been carefully maintained by the current owners and adjoin the South Downs.
Once a very successful bespoke Sussex Tea Room for many years and prior to this at some time a historic Inn. The property could possibly once more be a reused for a similar cottage
business venture subject to planning permission being obtained. The extensive sized parking
area and wide access still exists to the far entrance of the property.
Internally this delightful character Sussex residence has a sitting room, dining room, cloakroom, kitchen breakfast room, utility room, boot room, cloakroom, inner hall, landing, 4 bedrooms, three of which have ensuite shower rooms and a character family bathroom / shower room. In addition to this accommodation, the property has the added benefit of a generous sized attached annexe, comprises of a good sized double bedroom / sitting room an ensuite bathroom / shower room and a kitchen dining room. The annexe can either be accessed by a concealed internal door from the main house, or buy its own exterior private entrance and entrance porch.
This property therefore has the potential to either be a wonderful family home which has good accommodation to allow for an elderly relative to live alongside their family members, or as an adaptable holiday rental cottage.
