Full description

1 Bepton Grange is the original part of this substantial Edwardian Country house which has now been divided into three wings and a detached coach house. The property is located in the heart of the South Downs National Park in this highly sought after village and offers a truly stunning rural setting with views over the Downs.

The property has many great original features including high ceilings, cornicing, picture rails,wide bay sash windows, wood block flooring and fireplaces with their original surrounds.

The property is approached along a York stone path that leads to an impressive ornate brick and stone entrance porch. A large original front door opens into an entrance hall with a cloakroom off it. This in turn leads into wonderfully spacious hall with high corniced ceilings and the original wide staircase. There is an elegant dual aspect sitting room and a superb open plan kitchen/dining room both with wood burning stoves and large bay windows.

On the first floor are three double bedrooms, two with large bay windows and original fireplaces and a family bathroom and a separate shower room.

The second floor offers two more charming original attic rooms that could both be used as bedrooms or for other suitable purposes.

Outside is an attractive raised south facing stone terrace with stunning views over the South Downs and steps down to the gardens which are mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and a patio area. Steps to the side of the entrance porch lead down to a small cellar which is currently being used as a wood store. A gravelled parking area to the front offers space for 3/4 cars.

The village of Bepton boasts a country house hotel with superb leisure facilities and a public house and is surrounded by open countryside with a backdrop of the South Downs.

This stunning country residence would provide an ideal rural retreat and a perfect lock up and leave with its low maintenance garden and adjoining neighbours. EPC - E

Why live in Midhurst?

Midhurst lies on the River Rother, just 12 miles north of Chichester, and has the remarkable claim to fame of being the home of British polo thanks to the Cowdray Park Polo Club on the local Cowdray Estate, but there’s so much more to this pretty market town. It’s centuries old, boasting more than 100 listed buildings with a charming mix of medieval, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture that sits comfortably alongside more contemporary new homes.

The narrow lanes of Midhurst’s old town offer a fantastic variety of places to shop with an abundance of small independent boutiques all housed in ancient buildings. There are plenty of places to dine in and around the town centre, too, with options ranging from up-market restaurants specialising in local produce to high street favourites and charming tearooms where you can enjoy your favourite afternoon treat.

You’ll also find plenty to do here – when you’re not engaged in polo, fly-fishing or clay pigeon shooting on the Cowdray Estate, you could head over to the Cowdray Golf Club to enjoy some of the most scenic views in West Sussex and get involved with one of the many other clubs and societies that use it as a base. You’ll find a local camera club, the Midhurst Players, the Gardening Club and in August you could join in with the ten days of fun at the Midhurst Music, Arts and Dramatic Festival, ‘MADhurst’. There’s never a dull moment here!

As far as family life goes, we have many well-regarded schools in and around the area, all with strong Ofsted reports and excellent reputations, including Midhurst C of E Primary and Midhurst Rother College, which, between them, cater for pupils from age four to 18.
