The property is approached from the minor country lane via double wooden entrance gates which lead into the property's extensive gravel entrance drive.

The self-contained annexe is approached via a separate door to one side of this building.

Adjacent to the entrance drive is a large level lawn which includes a putting green, a kitchen garden with three raised beds, compost bins and various wood stores. From this area of the garden there are magnificent far reaching views over the surrounding countryside to the north.

Immediately adjacent to the southern and eastern side of the house is a wide paved terrace which is ideal for al fresco dining and enjoying the lovely outlook over the garden towards the South Downs beyond. From the terrace an external staircase gives access to the roof terrace. Beyond the terracing the garden is laid to lawn and is part-walled. To the far end of the garden there is a substantial timber summerhouse and a feature well. In all about 0.5 acre.
