Detached country house of character

This charming detached country house of character with delightful gardens and paddocks is in a secluded position with far reaching views within the South Downs National Park.

Greenlanes, in Forestside, is a charming period property with classic brick and knapped flint elevations, part tile hung, under a mainly tiled roof.

Worthy of mention is the impressive reception hall with feature alcove and beam and stairs leading to the first floor.

Leading off the hall to the west is the dual aspect sitting room with open fireplace and door leading out to the loggia, and to the east, the farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room with doors leading to the side courtyard, to the rear terrace and gardens.

On the western side of the property is the dining room and the drawing room with open fireplace and doors leading out to the terrace and gardens.

On the first floor there are five well proportioned bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom, and the family bathroom.

The accommodation is light and airy throughout and from much of the house there are stunning views of the garden and surrounding countryside.

Outside, there is a gravelled courtyard with access to the detached double garage, the detached single garage and, at the rear, to the detached timber built outbuilding.

The formal gardens are delightful with a feature garden at the front with rose and vegetable beds edged with box and lavender, and a small pond.

On the western elevation is the sun terrace and, leading off the sitting room, a loggia clad with grapevine.

There are extensive lawns within which the solar heated swimming pool is situated.

Surrounding the property on three sides are the paddocks enclosed by post and rail fencing and hedges.

Guide price £1,500,000.
