The Property
Downsview House, which was originally two cottages, is an attractive property built of brick beneath a clay tile roof. Extended by the current owners, Downsview House offers a spacious family home with the benefit of a studio which has been readily let over the years. The entrance hall leads to a light, double aspect sitting room with a wood burning stove. A glazed single door opens onto the south facing patio, which spans the width of the house. The dining room also faces south and enjoys beautiful views over the garden.

A hallway leads to a generous kitchen/breakfast room with a wide range of kitchen units, a walk in pantry and a centralised island. French doors lead to the garden and an awning provides shade from the southerly sun. There is also a utility room, cloakroom and a study. The ground floor benefits from underfloor heating.

On the first floor there is a large, triple aspect master bedroom offering fantastic elevated views across open farmland to the South Downs with a walk in wardrobe and bathroom en suite.
