Property Description

Additional Information


A rare opportunity to acquire an imposing Grade II listed period property requiring complete renovation whilst overlooking its large gardens and having some useful Outbuildings which are considered to have development potential, subject to obtaining the necessary building consents. Approached by a long private driveway and enjoying substantial parking together with a generous level lawned side garden, this mid-17th Century gem was believed to have formed part of the Chichester Estate and functioned as a Paper Mill and subsequently a working Farmhouse. Arranged over 3 floors, the central Reception Hall leads to 2 bay fronted Reception Rooms and a farmhouse style Kitchen with a separate Laundry Room and Scullery. Located on the First Floor are 4 Bedrooms and a large Bathroom whilst the Second Floor offers potential for a further 3 Bedrooms. Adjoining the property is a traditional single-storey Barn which offers tremendous scope. The paddock style gardens are believed to extend to approximately half an acre with further formal lawns and well-stocked flower beds and borders.
