The expression seeing is believing is certainly appropriate for this fabulous detached character home nestled in the heart of Walderton village, in the glorious South Downs National Park. Surrounded by stunning unspoilt countryside, Downings is a beautifully presented individual property which has undergone extensive modernisation and improvement in recent years to create a very special home.
The flexible accommodation includes an open plan kitchen/family room with a wood burning stove and bi folding doors to the rear garden, a formal sitting room with feature fireplace surround also with bi folding doors to the rear garden, and separate dining room. There is also a ground floor double bedroom/reception room, shower room and laundry. A feature dividing staircase leads from the spacious entrance hall up to a light galleried landing. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, walk in wardrobe and a Juliet balcony overlooking the beautiful rear garden.
The gardens are a particular feature of the property, extending to approximately a third of an acre (0.37 acre) in total. A gravel driveway to one side leads to an open courtyard with a wood store and a double car barn surmounted by a slate roof. The gardens are stocked with an abundance of mature shrubs and plants with seating areas and extensive lawns
Walderton is a highly desirable location within the South Downs National Park and within easy access to Chichester, Emsworth and Petersfield.

We consider ourselves very lucky to be working in a city that blends so many different architectural styles, from elegant Georgian buildings to contemporary new apartments and waterside properties that overlook the harbour.In 2013, The Sunday Times listed Chichester as one of the top places to live in the UK with ‘something for everyone’ – and they weren’t wrong. Chichester is a cathedral city, a county town and home to some of the oldest churches and buildings in the country. There are many well-regarded public and state schools in the local area with further and higher education options available from Chichester College, West Dean College and the University of Chichester. Our great schools have always made Chichester very appealing for those looking for the perfect place to raise a family.
