Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A spacious and well-appointed period cottage dating back to 1920 and enjoying a fantastic setting within Ditchling Common, which adjoins the South Downs National Park and the plentiful amenities of Burgess Hill. As well as lovely rural views, the property also benefits from a third of an acre of grassland.

A wealth of period features are complemented by the recently refurbished interiors, which have been completed to a high standard and have created a wonderful flow throughout the house with a monochrome colour scheme that enhances the excellent natural light. Highlights include the stunning family bathroom with its freestanding claw-footed bathtub; the modern kitchen laid to striking chequerboard tile; the spacious family room with its vaulted ceiling and plank floors; and the lovely sitting room still retaining its inglenook brick-lined fireplace. There is an abundance of windows throughout, many with dual aspect views over the surrounding paddocks and farmland.

The property extends to 1833 square feet and has been extended and improved, but still has further potential to personalise to the incoming purchasers’ wishes. On the ground floor, the accommodation is accessed from a hallway leading to the sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and drawing room. The drawing room is open to the family room and provides a fabulous space to entertain in. Additional accommodation includes a utility room, boot room and a shower room.

A wooden staircase rises from the sitting room to the first floor, where there is a generous main bedroom with access to a walk-in wardrobe. There are a further three bedrooms including one with a mezzanine floor, and a family bathroom.


Woodbarton is situated along a long driveway which is shared with just four houses. There is a detached double garage which has been partially converted for storage to include an office and storeroom to the rear. In addition to the 5.45 acres of paddocks there are ample gardens including a good size lawn with children’s play area laid to bark chippings, mature hedging, a paved patio and a large gravel driveway alongside the house.


Ditchling Common covers around 180 acres of Sussex countryside, providing the perfect setting for walking, fishing, riding and off-road cycling, with the house enjoying a secluded spot surrounded by its own private paddocks. There are a good number of amenities locally including a good choice of shops in Burgess Hill, plus a station, Waitrose supermarket and leisure facilities. Alternative shopping can be found in Ditchling, with its independent cafes, pubs and popular delicatessen, and the city of Brighton to the south which has a marina, beaches and high street stores. The M23/A23 provides good access to Gatwick and the national motorway network. There are a number of excellent schools in the area, including St. Margaret’s Primary School in Ditchling, Downlands Community Secondary School in Hassocks, Hurstpierpoint College, Burgess Hill School for Girls and Brighton College.
