Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The sale of Cleavers' offers the opportunity to acquire a charming detached house, situated in an idyllic location and having been constructed in its original form during the mid/late 1800's notably as two semi detached cottages.

We are lead to believe that in the early1900's the property was then extended and converted into its current form. More recently the property was owned and occupied by the renowned composer, the late Kenneth V Jones.

The property is situated on a no-through country lane, opposite St Andrew's Church and village hall. Bishopstone village forms part of the South Downs National Park and is understood to have a population of around 200 people, including the nearby hamlet of Norton.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors and has been the subject of a loft conversion giving three extra rooms on the second floor, which are currently arranged as a study, library and music room. These rooms could be utilised as either bedrooms or work from home office space.

The ground floor has a spacious combined reception and music room with low level ceiling and decorative pillars. There is a good size dual aspect kitchen/dining room with adjoining laundry room and pantry. The drawing room has two bay windows and opens out onto the side gardens.

The first floor has a generous size landing affording access to four double bedrooms, all having a good level of storage facility. The main bedroom has an en suite facility.

The side gardens enjoy a westerly aspect frontage, providing plenty of afternoon sunshine and being reasonably private with flint stone boundary walls. There is also a garage included within the sale, situated within an adjacent road, named The Hollow.

The property is in need of modernisation. Vacant possession subject to grant of probate.

Ground Floor - The property is elevated from the road approached via some steps and flint stone retaining wall. Entrance porch opens into an spacious combined reception and music room with wooden flooring, low level ceilings, open fireplace and decorative pillars. There is a good size dual aspect kitchen/dining room also with wooden flooring with an adjoining pantry and laundry room. The drawing room has two bay windows, open fireplace and affords access onto the picturesque side gardens.

First Floor - This floor has an expansive landing with recessed cupboards and housing the cylinder tank. The two largest bedrooms on this floor are situated to the front and enjoy views towards St Andrews church. The main bedroom also has its own en suite bathroom. There are two further good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. Many of the bedrooms have a good level of storage.

Second Floor - An open tread stairway leads to this floor having three further rooms. Whilst these are currently arranged as a music room, library and a store room, they could also be utilised as further bedrooms or work from home office usage.

Outside - To the rear elevation there is a convenient garden store room, York stone patio to the rear elevation, flint stone wall with high level shrubs and bushes allowing a good level of seclusion. The side garden is equally private and also enclosed by an original flint stone wall. The rear patio garden has a retaining wall, convenient garden store room, oil tank and pathways to the side way, leading to the front garden. We believe the property has a garage included, which may need some attention and is situated via the next road.
