An opportunity to acquire a former granary to the nearby Bex Mill. In a truly stunning rural setting The Granary was built around the 1800's of mellow stone elevations and was converted and extended in the 1950's into a residential dwelling.
A former owner was the grandfather of Richard Cobden who was responsible for the repeal of the Corn Laws.
The property has been well maintained by the current owner and now offers scope for updating and improvement to a new owner's taste. The interior provides a distinct character and charm with exposed stone walls, wooden beams and vaulted ceilings along with flexible accommodation with a ground floor bedroom suite.
There is potential to extend the property further subject to the usual planning consents. Outside a gravel drive leads to a detached double garage with further parking available.
A stand out feature of the property is its idyllic setting in a stunning half an acre garden with the mill stream running through it. A large sunny terrace adjacent to the mill stream provides a perfect space to enjoy the stream and wildlife with a charming bridge taking you across the stream. The garden is well stocked with a number of specimen trees along with a bountiful display of Galanthus, Primula and Narcissi in the Spring and orchids in the Summer.
The property is being offered for sale with no onward chain. EPC - F

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.
