Situated in a rural position on the outskirts of the downland village of Alciston, sits this charming detached property, surrounded by its own grounds, with delightful views towards the South Downs. Its conversion from a period barn into a stunning family home has been sympathetic in maintaining its character features, including exposed beams and is in keeping with the surrounding countryside setting. You will immediately feel at home in the welcoming entrance hall and get a sense of the space available with the galleried landing above. The layout of this house is very sociable and the hub of the home is the kitchen/breakfast room where you can imagine the family gathering together on special occasions. You have the extra luxury of a downstairs shower room as well as an ensuite upstairs and the main bathroom. The garden is a delight for everyone; it includes a small orchard and herb terrace as well as plenty of space for children to burn off some energy and terraces for adults to relax watching the sun set over the Downs. The spacious and flexible accommodation is complemented by the added benefit of a separate, self-contained annexe providing ample accommodation should friends or family wish to stay or has potential to create additional income should the new owners require. The village itself has its own pub and church and a local village shop is only a short walk away in Selmeston. Nearby Berwick provides a Post Office as well as a mainline train station with direct links to London and Brighton.
What the Owner says:
We love this house and are only leaving because, after 12 years, we now need to downsize. The house and garden have given us everything needed for creating the happiest of homes; space, security, comfort and wonderful countryside views with incredibly easy access to the Downs. The property is admired by everyone who comes here.
Its annexe has given us not only extra guest accommodation but has been, as a self-contained holiday let, a source of additional income. We have the fortune of excellent neighbours and a caring and supportive community, so we trust that our successors here will be as delighted with this home as we have been.
