Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An individual contemporary architect designed detached house constructed in around 1967 in the picturesque village of Piddinghoe. The substantial home has four bedrooms, two en-suite shower rooms, family bathroom, self contained Studio, garage and extensive gardens.

Harping Hill House is set in delightful landscaped gardens and has been the subject of considerable improvement and modernisation by the current owners. The house boasts a sizeable first floor wrap around open plan living room and luxury fitted kitchen with vaulted ceiling and far reaching views towards the Ouse Valley and Seaford Head.

Piddinghoe was once at the heart of Sussex Smuggling and is also famous for having the only remaining bottle-shaped brick kiln in the country and its church is one of three in the Ouse Valley with a round Norman tower. The tidal river runs alongside the village and gives Piddinghoe villagers and yachting enthusiasts sailing and rowing opportunities as well as beautiful views of the South Downs. Located south of the County Town of Lewes between the River Ouse and the sea yet only a mile and a quarter from a mainline station with trains to Brighton and London. The name Harping Hill can be traced back to the days of the Norman Conquest.

The established landscaped gardens have a wealth of unusual specimen trees, shrubs and bushes. Brick flanked paths link the many unusual garden areas which include kitchen and fruit gardens, greenhouse, plus access to the roof terrace and summerhouse. Hidden to the rear of the garden is a purpose built 36' x 17'6" workshop, and store shed. To the front you will find ample parking for several vehicles plus the garage. UPVC double glazed windows, modern electrical and plumbing system and oil fired central add to the comforts.
