Full description

Kemps is the oldest surviving dwelling house in Portslade Old Village, located at the Eastern end of the High Street behind St. Nicolas Church. The house was the first house built on what later became Portslade Street and then Portslade High Street. Kemps consists of two wings at right angles; the Western wing is the oldest. It has been much altered but shows traces of 16th century origin. The Western wing is later, possibly about 1640. Oak beams have been exposed throughout and new Attic ceilings replace the original ones of cowdung and horsehair. The property offers spacious accommodation including 4 bedrooms, 4 reception rooms, and a kitchen/diner. More information about the property and it's history can be found on this website: Situated on this quiet 'access only' road in the heart of Portslade Old Village, local shopping facilities can be found on South Street and on Valley Road.
