A very handsome, early 18th Century detached property situated in a delightful rural location within the parish of Amberley and adjoining open farmland to the rear
This charming Grade II listed residence has been carefully restored and refurbished by the current owner and retains as many of the period features as possible, combining these with quality replacements mirroring the originals including stone flagstones and solid oak doors and flooring. Located just off Theescombe Lane within the parish of Amberley, the property has a delightful mainly walled garden and adjoins open farmland to the rear. There is also parking for several vehicles immediately to the front of the two storey coach house which currently provides a garage/store with an undeveloped attic room above which could provide independent living or office accommodation, if required and subject to the necessary permissions being obtained. The internal accommodation is arranged over three floors and briefly comprises the following:- Porch leading to the entrance hall , farmhouse style kitchen with hand crafted cupboards and solid oak worksurfaces, Belfast sink, built in appliances and solid oak flooring, utility room, cloakroom, sitting room with stone fireplace housing cast iron log burning stove and double opening doors leading to the rear garden, bathroom and master bedroom on the first floor with two further bedrooms on the floor above.
The property is approached through wrought iron gates leading to off road parking immediately in front of a pretty stone built outbuilding currently used as a garage/workshop. Stone steps at the side of the building lead up to an attic room with exposed “A” frame timbers which could provide further accommodation if required (subject to the necessary permissions being obtained). The delightful mainly walled gardens to the front have a southerly aspect and are paved and landscaped with a large ornamental pond and carefully chosen planting of ornamental trees and shrubs. The level rear garden adjoins open farmland and has splendid views over the surrounding countryside.
