Full description

3, 4 and 5 Leggs Lane is a pretty Grade II listed property which, we believe, was built in around 1550 in the medieval hall-house style, with wattle and daub smoke bays into the roof to direct the smoke from the fire out through a hole.

The property is known as 3,4 and 5 as it was divided into three cottages for some centuries. We understand that in around 1583 the house sold for £28.

Early on its life a large brick inglenook fireplace was added, leaving the original smoke bays intact in the roof where they remain in good order, still with the soot from the original fireplace. The inglenook fireplace creates a warm and cosy feel in the dining room throughout the winter months.

This house, which is very similar to that at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum known as Pendean, originally situated about 1.5 miles away, was the farmhouse for Leggs Farm across the road until it was converted into three cottages, having side additions added in the course of its life, the latest being by our clients' parents in around 1975 at the rear. When they bought the property in 1946 there was no water on site, no electricity, no sanitation and no telephone. Over the next 30 years all these things were added so that the house as it appears now dates from 1976. The property was connected to a new main sewer in the early 1980's and our client added a wood burner in the early 2000's.

3, 4 and 5 Leggs Lane is a quintessential Grade II listed property which sits in a truly magnificent setting, with stunning views to the South Downs that have changed little over the last 400 years.
