Charters is a wonderful four bedroom family home that is set in a glorious setting in the South Downs National Park, walking distance into the centre of Ditchling village.

A sweeping generous drive leads through the stunning gardens to a triple garage and the front of the property. On entering you are greeted by a bright and light entrance hall with reception rooms leading off. The drawing room is a wonderful room, generous in size and filled with an abundance of natural light supplied by the many windows and French doors to the garden. Delightful views are located in all the rooms of the established gardens that surround the property but also of the South Downs.

The dining area sits well to the rear of the drawing room and in turn this leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room and a further utility room with cloakroom. A further sitting room is located to the front of the property again light and bright and with an attractive fireplace.

To the first floor a large landing leads you to the four bedrooms. The master bedroom suite which is ample in size provides stunning views of The South Downs and en suite bathroom and dressing area. There are then a further three good sized bedrooms and large family bathroom, this is so ample in size it could easily be divided into 2 shower rooms if required.


The grounds are superb at Charters being just over 7 acres. They are divided into formal gardens with mature trees, shrubs and borders and large terrace area for alfresco entertaning.

The rest of the plot is lovely flat pasture land that is well protected on all sides and with the advantage of a large barn. This of course lends the house very well to equestrian buyers as the hacking is quite superb being just moments from a bridle path that provides numerous hacks directly up onto The South Downs Way which is highly sought after by not only equestrians but cyclists and walkers.


The picturesque downland village of Ditchling lies just 1.6 miles from the famous Ditchling Beacon and its surrounding nature reserve in the South Downs National Park. The village has a variety of local shops, including arts and craft workshops, a museum, Post Office and cafes such as The Green Welly. In addition, there are pubs including The Bull and The White Horse, a village church and a primary school.

The city of Brighton and the South coast are about nine miles distance away from the property.
