6 Bedroom Detached House Sold
A substantial (over 5,000 sq ft) 17th Century farmhouse in grounds of about 1.2 acres located in a particularly fine edge of village location.
West Dean Farm is a particularly fine Grade II Listed farmhouse dating back to the 17th Century with Flemish brickwork under a clay tiled roof.
Impressive wings were added in the mid-18th Century and the property now benefits from an enormously versatile, (approx.) 5150 sq ft of
accommodation over 4 floors. Whilst the property is in good order throughout, there is scope to modify to suit one's requirements. As you may expect, many of the principal rooms- including the kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and dining room- enjoy a southerly aspect. There is a lovely, dual aspect drawing room, for those
needing to work from home there is an elegant study, a generous utility and spacious entrance hall complete the layout downstairs. On the
first floor there are 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and on the second floor, there are two generous attic rooms, each with an oculus in the
gable of the wing.
There is a cellar within this lovely period home, plenty of parking to the front of the property as well as garaging and stores outside. The
majority of the gardens lie to the front of the property and are predominantly laid to lawn- the grounds are approx 1.2acres in size. This substantial and most impressive home enjoys far reaching views over adjoining countryside and the southerly aspect beyond the perimeter is of neighbouring Grade II Listed barns and its green
courtyard. There is planning permission to convert the brick barn to the west of the courtyard into 2 dwellings (application no. S/2003/0113). We understand the threshing barn, staddle stone barn and granary are protected from development.
