The detached house was built in the early 1970s with brick and part tile-hung elevations under a shallow pitched roof. The rooms are light and spacious and from this elevated position there are some views to the ridge of the South Downs. The present owners have meticulously maintained the house and a conservatory addition provides the perfect link to the garden. There is an alarm system, replacement double-glazing, gas-fired central heating to radiators and cavity wall insulation. The attractive and well-stocked gardens are a particular feature and enjoy a westerly aspect to the rear.
