The central portion of a grand Victorian mansion with private grounds of 1.8 acres enjoying a wonderful rural location at the end of a long drive on the edge of this popular village close to the local store/delicatessen, pub, highly regarded primary school and glorious countryside. We believe the original grand house dates from the 1850s and in later years, the railway engineer John Saxby who apparently invented the current points system still used on the railways lived there. The property was divided into three separate wings in 1950 and still has the entertaining rooms including the 'formal dining room' now used as the main living room, the sitting room which was part of a larger room and the 'gun room' now the study. On the first floor: there are 4 large bedrooms, a walk-in wardrobe, 2 bathrooms and a separate WC whilst on the top floor there is a very large bedroom, smaller 6th bedroom, bathroom and a kitchenette which could be used as an au pair's or relative's flat. There is a similar sized loft space which has not been converted but offers potential for additional rooms if required (STPP). Outside: a long recently re-laid gravel driveway leads to a central green where there is parking in front of the house plus additional parking and a separate double garage to the south. A right of way around the side of High Pines (South Wing) leads to some beautiful formal gardens, a raised gravel terrace and a parterre garden which leads down through additional gardens where there is a picket fence and gate through to the copse, which could be used as a small paddock,  At the far end there is a gate giving direct access onto a bridleway linking with South Road and Hundred Acre Lane which in turns give links to both Ditchling and Chailey Common Nature Reserves and bridleways leading to the the South Downs National Park. The owners have had the boiler replaced recently, virtually redecorated the entire house, had several new carpets, some cast-iron retro style radiators installed and added timber framed double glazing to the full rear of the house.
