An exceptional family house with open plan accommodation and a large private rear garden


Ditchling with its beautiful views of the South Downs is a historic village playing host to a selection of local shops, cafés, a church and two public houses including The Bull, an award-winning gastro pub.  The larger village of Hassocks, with its mainline train station is a short drive away and provides regular rail services to London and a more comprehensive array of shops. The local area benefits from a range of revered state and private schools for all ages

Shirleys is a private and highly sought after residential road on the eastern side of the village. The property has been extended and enlarged over the years creating a spacious house with an abundance of traditional and character features but also encapsulating the ever popular, modern style open plan feel. With the addition of a large bespoke orangery, the kitchen with granite breakfast bar joins seamlessly into the light dining/family space. Double doors from the sitting room can be opened enlarging the space further and giving a different dimension perfect for entertaining. With the doors closed the sitting room becomes a warm family space with cast iron ‘Vermont’ wood burning stove, slate hearth, surround and mantel. There is also a family room and office with vaulted ceiling both with a multitude of uses. Oak flooring is fitted to the whole of the ground floor. The first floor provides 4 bedrooms and a bathroom with a freestanding cast iron roll top bath and twin inset wash hand basins. The master suite benefits from a separate dressing room and en-suite shower room. The large rear garden is private and bordered by mature hedging and established trees. There is a sizable terrace that adjoins the rear of the house and large expanse of lawn perfect for children’s games of all varieties. Parking is plentiful on the shingle driveway and detached double garage.
