3 Bedroom, House | Willingdon Lane, Jevington

One of the very finest period houses of its type that we have seen in the local downland villages over many years - an absolutely charming and spacious house set within extensive gardens in this idyllic downland location.

Rosepenna, which is the principal portion of an impressive listed Grade II period house, has been substantially and tastefully improved over the years with care taken to preserve and enhance the charm of the period features which include an outstanding inglenook fireplace in the principal reception room as well as unusually high oak beamed ceilings with generous window space flooding the house with natural light. Most of the accommodation secures views over the delightful gardens towards the downs whilst the extensive but easily maintained gardens provide a lovely setting and a high degree of privacy in summer.
