Situated surrounded by rolling countryside, Clifford Dann is delighted to offer this lovely detached property set in substantial grounds on the outskirts of the village of Ditchling. The present owners have lived here for many years and this is the first time the property has come to the market in nearly half a century.

Ditchling sits at the foot of the beautiful South Downs within a national park and is renowned for its community life, local shops, public houses and museum. Hassocks rail station (London 55 minutes) is approximately 2 miles away, Gatwick Airport is within a 30 minute car journey and schools and leisure facilities are close by. The multiple shopping and transport facilities of Burgess Hill are a short distance away as is the city of Brighton & Hove.

The property is arranged over two floors and offers extremely spacious living accommodation presently arranged as a three bedroom chalet bungalow and a one bedroom annex which could be incorporated into the main house if desired. All rooms are well appointed and are of a good size, many affording views over the lovely gardens.There is ample scope for further extension and redevelopment of the property, subject to any necessary consents. 

To the rear of the property there is a large games room/workshop which could also be amalgamated into the property if desired but as it stands offers additional space for entertaining or as an office.

In addition, there is a large self-contained studio above the detached double garage providing additional accommodation for guests or members of the family - this has a kitchenette and bathroom.

The gardens are landscaped around the house, with various mature trees and shrub borders and enjoy views over the adjoining paddocks. There is a large chicken coop and run, various timber outbuildings, a large single garage and stabling for several horses. 

The property requires modernisation throughout but offers incredible potential for further improvement. The surrounding paddocks with mature tree screening effectively create a feeling of complete privacy and seclusion whilst providing an ideal space for children to enjoy.


Properties of this type, size and in such a lovely location rarely come to the market and an internal inspection is strongly advised.
