Postern House is a stunning Grade II listed detached house situated in the quaint village of Offham. The property is believed to be one of the oldest buildings in the village, dating all the way back to the late 1500's.

Inside, the house is full of character with aged oak beams, ragstone walls, Kent peg tiled roof, and multi-pane casement windows. The dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room is a dream with a range of painted wall and base units, a large central island with granite chopping area and breakfast bar, and 2 NEFF electric ovens and NEFF 5 zone induction hob. There's even a useful larder cupboard and colourful splashbacks.

The property also boasts a utility room in the bakehouse with Victorian terracotta floor tiles, a sitting room with a feature fireplace and study recess, and a dining room with an attractive former fireplace that's perfect for storing wine. There's even a study that doubles up as a guest bedroom, and a ground floor cloakroom.

Upstairs, you'll find a generous master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom with limestone wall tiles and oak effect flooring. There are also three further double bedrooms, one of which is particularly large and could easily accommodate ensuite facilities if required. The family bathroom is also stunning with a shower over the panelled bath, granite topped vanity unit, and Amtico wood effect flooring.

Outside, the property is set in a plot of just under half an acre with well screened gardens that are divided into two areas. The first area is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and hedging, and then through the beech hedge is a 'secret' garden with a vegetable garden and fruit trees. The property is approached through wooden gates that lead over a gravel drive, providing ample parking space.
