DESCRIPTION

A Grade II Listed country residence affording a lifestyle to be aspired to that is situated on the South Downs Way.

Originally constructed as a working farmhouse this home of considerable charm and character has evolved to become a fabulous family home setting in the heart of the most wonderful eastern end of the South Downs National Park.

Built circa 17th century, Southease Place is a distinctive country house occupying a prominent village location, set within downland countryside affording complete peace and tranquillity with views over the village green and beyond to the 11th c. church. This period home of unrelenting charm and character has seen additions in the Victorian era and more latterly in the 1930's.

As it is today the house, attached cottage, garden pavilion, pool lodge, swimming pool, tennis court and various outbuildings occupy highly desirable landscaped gardens and grounds, including a lake and pastures totalling 11.38 acres (TBV measured via Promap). The lifestyle that these aforementioned recreational facilities provides, creates an intoxicating environment that is often sought, however so rarely found.

The beautifully presented accommodation is enhanced by the adjoining cottage which could be used for a multitude of purposes. These such as ancillary accommodation for a relative or parents, for the use of housing staff such as an Au pair or nanny, or indeed as a valuable source of additional income, this by way of a short term let (approximately estimated at £1300 pcm) or potentially as occasional AirBNB rooms. The bountiful number of walkers and cyclists that pass close by whilst taking on the challenge of the South Downs Way, would provide a year round source of potential clients, as would the nearby Glyndebourne Opera House.
