Full description

Set in a SEMI - RURAL LOCATION, on the edge of OVING village, a most attractive DETACHED PERIOD HOUSE set in a large plot. The house has a BEAUTIFUL GARDEN and outbuildings, including a pretty, detached CART HOUSE. This had planning permission (now lapsed) for conversion into a HOLIDAY LET. There is also a stable block. The house itself offers very good accommodation, along with period features such as open fireplaces. There is scope to extend the main house, subject to the usual consents.

We understand that the house has origins dating back to the 1820's and it is very photogenic in appearance. The house has an attractive reception hall, with a fireplace fitted with electric log effect fire. A breakfast room, with functional open fireplace, leads into the kitchen which is large enough to accommodate a dining table and there is also a separate utility room. The kitchen has a very welcoming wood burning stove which provides the focal point for this room. There is also a cloakroom. The formal sitting room has an attractive fireplace.

There is oak flooring to the ground floor. On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms with a family bathroom and an en suite to the master bedroom. The house is approached via a long gated driveway. There is lots of parking for several cars. The gardens are well tended, being laid mainly to lawn and bordered by a rife to the east of the property. Potential buyers with young children should note that there is usually running water in the rife.

The gardens have a delightful outlook over an adjoining field to the downs beyond and the vendors currently rent a small paddock to the rear of the property from Network Rail for a small annual fee. There is a very useful timber stable block and the detached cart house has a variety of potential uses, including conversion to a holiday let (subject to the necessary consents). N B Please note that beyond the boundary of the network rail land to the rear of the garden, there is a railway line.
