A rare opportunity to acquire a detached house in the heart of this sought after village with an acre of grounds and stunning uninterrupted panoramic views across the valley to the hamlet of River and the South Downs beyond.
The property is approached off the village street along a driveway to a five bar gate leading to a parking area and an attractive barn style double carport and store. The house is built in a character style with elevations made up of stone with brick quoin and hand made clay tile hanging all under a clay tiled roof.
The accommodation is well proportioned with character features such as wooden latch interior doors and a superb double aspect sitting room with a large Inglenook fireplace and solid oak ceiling beams. Two french doors open out onto a terrace which affords stunning panoramic views. A formal dining room also opens out onto the same terrace. There is a further reception room that is currently used as a gym but offers a variety of uses. The hand painted kitchen has space for a table and has a separate utility room. Upstairs is a generous master bedroom suite, a guest suite and two further double bedrooms and family bathroom.
A stand out feature of this property is the acre of grounds which include a mature formal garden, a paddock and a hazelnut orchard. A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the exceptional setting of this village house.

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.
