The property comprises a detached three bedroom cottage which was part of the local farm for many years. The property is in need of cosmetic updating but is perfectly habitable and has been rented out for many years. The property is in the most beautiful spot with pleasant views from the first floor particularly over the downs and the property lends itself to an extension, subject to obtaining the necessary permissions. At present there are two reception rooms on the ground floor, both with open fireplaces, and a kitchen to the rear overlooking the gardens. There is a ground floor bathroom and three bedrooms on the first floor. There are a range of garden buildings and off-road parking for two cars, together with gardens on three sides.
