The sale of this property provides a wonderful opportunity for a purchaser to reside literally right in the centre of South Harting, within the conservation area, but in a slightly elevated and quiet position. The property would benefit from some additional maintenance, and possibly some remodelling to enlarge the kitchen and bedroom, but the result would be a most attractive residential property.
It has colour washed elevations of brick under a slate roof. It is a period construction (probably Victorian or earlier). Particularly notable is the sitting room, which has a large number of period features, including beaming and a magnificent Bessemer beam over the working fireplace. It has the benefit of a south facing garden, almost entirely enclosed by stone walls, which has been beautifully maintained and is an absolute riot of colour during the summer.
