This glorious rural property lies only 1.2 miles from Cooksbridge main line station (London Victoria/London Bridge c.57 mins). The village of Barcombe is 1.3 miles to the north. The county town of Lewes is 3 miles, Brighton 10 miles, Haywards Heath 11 miles and Gatwick 25 miles. Glyndebourne is only 6 miles and the vast expanse of the South Downs is virtually on the doorstep. Plumpton Racecourse is 6 miles. A wide range of state and private prep and public schools are easily accessible.

Few houses can claim that virtually every south facing window paints a picture with some of the finest views along this stretch of the Downs. A sweeping banked driveway leads up to the Courtyard with a large double open Car Port, and a flagstone entrance doorway opening to the Hall. Off to one side is a large Drawing Room with a huge south facing window, marble slip fireplace and book shelving with a door out to the Conservatory with a Trompe-l'œil of the Downs, and a further Sitting Room. On the other side of the hallway there is a Dining Room which runs through to the Breakfast Room/Kitchen through again to a useful sized Utility Area, Boot Room and WC.

On the first floor the principal Bedroom has a dressing room with cupboards. The landing leads round to a further small Bedroom, Bathroom and separate WC and on the other side are four further Bedrooms all with spectacular views over the garden and towards the Downs together with a second Family Bathroom and separate WC.

A large double car port adjoins the house with a small potting shed in the rear yard together with a boiler room beyond and a Gardener's WC. The gardens and grounds are a further compliment to the property. At the entrance there are fine Oaks, Chestnuts and other trees with stone steps leading down to an old pond. A large lawn, hedged against the lane, with rose beds and shrubs flows out from the front terrace. To the side the swimming pool has a escallonia hedge around and a chalet summerhouse and beyond an open high beech hedge leads through to a small orchard and the tennis court. On the other side of the house beside the car port is a sheltered smaller garden with a fine pear tree and, a slightly leaning, timber and felt stables shed together with a greenhouse, brick cold frames and a larger timber and felt garden shed and dog kennel.

The property extends in all to approximately 1.43 acres (0.58 ha).
