Downmere is an interesting and unique opportunity to live within one of Sussex's most sought-after locations on the foot of the South Downs. The location offers access to Brighton and Hove; plus towns to the north including Burgess Hill Haywards Heath and Horsham.
Being the former stables/barns for the main residence, this property has a wealth of character features and even retains the original works to the clock tower.
The suggested (approved) planning permission provides an opportunity for five bedrooms and five bathrooms in a unique, pentagon shaped building, totalling approximately 3,700 sq.ft. of living space. The property boasts mature and well-kept gardens including a superb outlook over towards The South Downs, its own stream running through and direct access from the garden to the public footpath.
The property is currently offered as a disused barn and outbuilding. The ceilings offer a very generous height and there is a great opportunity to incorporate most of the character features. The plans also include a two bay garage.
Agent's note: Planning consent granted for 5 bedroom/5 bathroom residence.
Garage space for 2 cars.
