Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This charming, characterful property was converted from a former barn and is the most southerly of three houses that were created. It now consists of a very attractive flint-stone fronted cottage, and is known as Number One The Green, due its lovely views overlooking pretty Southwick Green.

The entrance to the cottage is at the rear and the solid wood and part-glazed front door leads into a lovely open, welcoming reception hallway with the kitchen and living room off it. The kitchen itself has been decorated in a clean and neutral style, in keeping with the period and atmosphere of the house and features a fine one and a half franke sink. The living room has a particularly striking tiled floor, featuring what are ostensibly the distinctive original stone quarry tiles, ceiling beams and lime rendered walls. This warm and cosy reception room is enhanced further by an impressive red-brick inglenook fireplace with working open fireplace and striking brass canopy over, as well as the lovely views over the village green.

Back in the hallway, the staircase leads to the first floor which houses the second of two bedrooms and the family bathroom. The amply proportioned second bedroom is currently presented as a second reception space and has carpeted floors, beamed ceiling and built in wardrobe that features a concealed kings guest bed that pulls down when needed. The family bathroom is again well-presented in elegant neutral tones and a white suite with bath and shower over. The master double bedroom is on the second floor and has a superb vaulted beamed ceiling, built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room which again is tastefully decorated to suit contemporary tastes.

At the rear of the property the verdant vistas continue as the delightful, well-tended garden extends away from the house to take advantage of the afternoon and evening sunshine. This is the ideal spot for sitting out in and enjoying a glass of something cool on those balmier spring and summer evenings with friends, or indeed to indulge your green-fingered propensities.

This is a truly lovely barn conversion of the older style, with its gorgeous beamed ceilings and walls and flint-stone exterior giving a lovely historic atmosphere and the village location offering all the amenities on your doorstep. Southwick mainline train station is just over quarter of a mile away and offers direct links to both London and Brighton, whilst there are sailing opportunities at the Lady Bee Marina and fun to be had at the beach which are both under half a mile distant.


The property has a beautifully laid out garden to the rear which is west aspect. It is mainly laid to lawn with well stocked flower/shrub/plant boarders and a door leading onto the single garage which is accessed at the rear via The Cotswolds which is a private road to the side of number 3.
