An unusual unlisted period house set in a stunning and peaceful rural location with no near neighbours, set in 5.17 acres with various ancillary outbuildings.

Cibses Cottage is a charming three-storey period home with red brick and peg tile elevations offering light-filled spacious accommodation and some spectacular views. The central reception hall leads naturally through into the comfortable family room with its feature fireplace, whilst the sizeable dual aspect drawing room also has a feature fireplace, double doors onto the wrap around garden and high corniced ceilings. Further living space can be found in the large conservatory, which offers three sets of double doors onto the garden and tranquil aspects to admire the pretty garden. The kitchen/dining room also benefits from double doors outside, as well as a traditional range cooker, exposed beams, terracotta tiled flooring, natural plaster walls and an array of cabinetry. A useful cloakroom completes the floor.

The first floor comprises three very generous bedrooms, two of which benefit from double aspects and all of which feature a variety of fitted wardrobes and are served by the family bathroom. The second-floor presents two similarly well-sized, skylit bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a home office. This room enjoys spectacular views through a dual aspect bank of windows over the surrounding land and countryside. An additional cloakroom completes the accommodation.

This property has 5.17 acres of land.


There is a pretty wrap around garden, with its plot surrounded and made private by a vast selection of handsome established trees. Attractive climbing plants and well-chosen shrubbery adorns the façade of the home, whilst a brick-laid rear terrace offers the ideal spot to dine al fresco. Original brick pathways flow around the garden, whist an original water well adds further charm, and various curved beds among the wide expanses of level lawn and a former lawn tennis court. The gardens extend to 2.74 acres with an additional paddock of 2.43 acres bordering the river Adur.

There are two large barns which could serve a number of potential uses, one with a garage and store and the other with a stable attached.
