There is also a dual-aspect dining room with a wood-burning stove in the fireplace, a separate cloakroom, a boot room and the light, spacious sitting room with French doors leading out onto the covered veranda.

The first floor accommodation comprises four double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room and a dressing area with built-in wardrobes, while the remaining bedrooms are served by a well-appointed family bathroom. 

The wood-panelled bath has a mixer tap incorporating a shower over, plus a separate tiled and glazed shower cubicle, wash-basin and WC.

There are superb, panoramic views of the downs and surrounding farmland from all rooms, both on the ground and first floor. 

Outside, the land and various outbuildings provide many opportunities to a buyer, permitting the possibility of creating a larger paddock for animals or retaining the large formal gardens around the home.

To each side of the property there is gated access for vehicles, allowing ample parking and ease of access.

To the south elevation the covered veranda has a tiled floor and has been partially glazed to prevent the south-westerly winds, so it is a delightful outdoor seating area with an adjacent brick paved patio. 

The formal gardens include a pergola, which offers an additional outdoor dining area, and there is a double garage and large timber storage shed, all with power and light. 

The paddock is accessed through a five-bar gate and could offer space for a pony, although would require fencing.
