The village of Ditchling nestles at the foot of the South Downs and has a range of everyday and specialist shops, art and craft galleries, St. Margaret’s church, a primary school, health centre, Post Office, popular Public House and restaurants. Ditchling is notable for its historic and cultural associations and the quality of its community life catering for a wide variety of interests.

Gatwick Airport can be reached by car in around thirty minutes. Golf is available at Pyecombe, Ditchling and Hassocks, sailing from both Brighton and Shoreham Marinas and the close proximity of the South Downs provides for excellent walking and horse riding.

The property itself is situated adjacent to Ditchling Common and is set back from the road, backing open countryside.

The entrance hall leads into the large main living room with views over the garden and an attractive feature fireplace with brick surround and log burner. There is a study and a dining room with bi-fold doors that open onto a sunny patio and terrace, perfect for al fresco dining.

The kitchen/breakfast room is large and fitted with an extensive range of wall and base units, a breakfast bar island, integrated appliances and an Aga. A side door leads to a conservatory/boot room and there is a 'snug' area which leads to an internal lobby and guest cloakroom. Stairs rise from here to the first floor.

From the main landing, there is a laundry room and four double bedrooms, all with ample storage. The family bathroom is large and has a modern suite comprising a  bath, enclosed shower cubicle and 'his and hers' wash hand basins.

The master suite incorporates both a dressing room and full ensuite bathroom and the bedroom itself is double aspect with views over the gardens.

The grounds of the house are outstanding, incorporating both extensive formal gardens with mature flower and shrub borders and trees, a play area for young children and a heated swimming pool (12m x 5m), fully fence-enclosed for safety. From the garden, a gate leads to a meadow, fully encircled by mature trees with a small pond.

Past another area of lawn at the side of the property, there is a small orchard with a greenhouse and more unusually,  a vineyard stocked with approximately 1000 vines of fruit-bearing grapevines (further information upon request).

Directly to the rear of the house a terrace provides an ideal entertainment space.

The property is approached by a short access road serving only three properties. hardstanding provides off street parking for several vehicles and there is a double garage and workshop housing the boiler and pool filtration unit.
