Little Swanborough is understood to have been built around 1928. The property has been sympathetically renovated and significantly enlarged by the current owners and provides beautifully presented, stylish and interesting accommodation over three floors.

Features of note include wide oak flooring in the reception hall and the sitting room. The well proportioned south east facing drawing room includes a large bay window and an attractive open fire place with stone surround.

From the light and spacious sitting room a pair of double doors leads onto a south facing terrace.

Further features of note include two further fire places with stone surround, some exposed timbers, luxurious bathroom suites, well proportioned family accommodation and a particularly impressive entertainment room incorporating a gymnasium/cinema room with a part vaulted ceiling and mezzanine floor above incorporating a large games room.

The kitchen/breakfast room is a particular feature of the property and has a traditional stone floor, granite work surfaces, 4 oven oil fired Aga, and part glazed door that gives access to the family room from which a door gives access to the garden.

Little Swanborough offers extremely flexible and versatile family living accommodation with the possibility (subject to planning permission) of converting the study and sitting room into an attached secondary annexe living accommodation.

From many of the principal rooms there are delightful views over the property’s gardens and to the South Downs beyond.

Little Swanborough is approached from the private lane via a pair of five bar carriage driveway gates which lead to a gravel parking area. The property includes an attached double garage.

Adjacent to the south and east of the house, there is a wide paved and part brick terrace which incorporates a heated swimming pool.

Beyond the terrace the garden is mainly laid to lawn and well stocked beds. This attractive garden includes a number of mature trees.

The paddock area lies beyond the rear formal garden and is divided by a clipped hedge. From the property and the gardens there are some spectacular views over the surrounding countryside towards the South Downs. In all about 1 acre.
