An impressive and attractive Grade II Listed farmhouse is offered for sale by estate agents and chartered surveyors, Batcheller Monkhouse. The property was built around 1520 and substantially rebuilt in 1970 with later additions by the current owners who have retained the character and features of a property from this period.

Sitting between Piltdown and Nutley on Down Street, a quiet rural lane which also links to Fletching, the property enjoys an elevated position with far reaching views to the South Downs. Being Grade II Listed the house has attractive elevations and has been well maintained throughout.

On the ground floor is an entrance hall with oak front door and flag stone floor leading through to an impressive drawing room with exposed timbers and a large stone inglenook fireplace with bessumer beam, a bay window plus French patio doors leading to a conservatory enjoying a wonderful aspect over the stunning gardens. Also from the hall, a dining room with inglenook fireplace and stone surround leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room which has views over the garden.

The bedroom accommodation is arranged over two floors, all having attractive views to the South and the master bedroom enjoying an en suite bathroom. Immediately adjacent to the main house is a useful annexe with double garage to the front and on the ground floor a kitchen and store room/study with French patio doors to the garden and a bedroom with en suite bathroom upstairs, together with a second bedroom/sitting room with views to the Downs.

The annexe could be used for many uses including home office/gym or guest accommodation. A particular feature of the house are the gardens which measure approximately 1.17 acres and are beautifully presented and well laid out with lawns, well stocked beds, a sheltered vegetable garden and tennis court.
