The Property
Verdley Edge is situated in the hamlet of Henley within the South Downs National Park, set back from the road and approached initially over a shared track, then on to the gravelled drive which has ample parking space.

It is believed to have 14th Century origins but is not listed. The core of the building is timber framed and there are examples of the fine timbers in the exposed beams around the house.

The property has a mixture of stone elevations, is part rendered with exposed timbers all under a clay tiled roof. A large two storey Georgian extension created the drawing room and bedrooms above. The current owners have sympathetically restored the property, including new electrics, heating and plumbing and have updated it to a very high specification. It now offers a wonderful kitchen/breakfast/family room with a woodburning stove and a wide range of kitchen units with granite worksurfaces. Steps down from the kitchen lead to a TV room with double doors out to the terrace. There is a study/dining room and formal drawing room to the other end of the house. A useful utility/boiler room and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

The attractive landing shows the frame of the property with exposed timbers. The beautiful master bedroom suite has a large shower room and walk in wardrobe and there are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The Lodge
Adjacent to the main house is a substantial 3 bedroom lodge which has a sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, double bedroom and shower room on the ground floor and 2 further double bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. It would be ideal for staff accommodation or for multi generational families wishing to live together yet retain their independence or as a bed & breakfast (subject to planning).

The Piggery
A charming converted Piggery forms a further guest bedroom with sitting area, shower room and kitchenette. Designed for flexible use as a guest studio or office accommodation.
