Winkworth - £710,000
This detached Grade II listed family house is situated in the idyllic hamlet of Hankham, surrounded by its own wonderful mature gardens.
We are led to believe the property dates back to the 16th century with a substantial Georgian addition offering a charming family home, with a wealth of period features including exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces and some original flooring.
The well fitted kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the house and is warm and inviting with its gas fired Aga being in central position.
It offers plenty of space for that growing family.
To the rear is the conservatory overlooking the enchanting garden.
The French doors lead directly into the dining room looking out over the front garden for those more formal occasions.
There is a further sitting room to the front of the house and a 24ft lounge with a lovely inglenook fireplace with inset wood burning stove.
On the first floor is the main bedroom with ensuite and lovely views, there are a further four bedrooms and two family bathroom.
All the bedrooms have views over the garden or to the South Downs.
Outside the gardens are truly wonderful and extend to approximately ½ acre (tbv).
There is a long gravel driveway leading in turn to the car port and garage with ample off road parking and turning space.
To the front of the property is an extensive formal lawn with wooden summer house, ornamental pond and an abundance of flower and shrub borders just coming into fruition, interspersed with fruit trees.
There is an excellent vegetable plot and a large expanse heavily cropped with fruit canes and vegetables.
The garden to the rear has the added advantage of an amazing Victorian greenhouse.
There are also other outbuildings.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn with extensive mature flower and shrub borders.
Hankham is a pretty hamlet with a thriving community spirit and its own primary school, served by Westham with its local shops and main line railway station (London Victoria 1 hr 40 mins) tbv.
