£1,950,000

7 Bedroom, House | Jevington,

Commanding glorious views over adjacent downland countryside - a magnificent Sussex barn conversion with four attached luxurious holiday cottages.

Smugglers Barn is believed to date from the late 18th Century (not listed) and is one of the longest in the area at an impressive 75'. The Barn and attached holiday cottages were the subjects of a most attentive restoration in recent years using some of the finest materials including wonderful oak joinery that comprises a large portion of the interior structure and decor in the main building. Presently run as a holiday let business with annual turnover in recent years exceeding £50,000, the accommodation could equally serve as an exceptionally comfortable 'multi-generational' family home with three of the cottages being accessible via 'secret' doorways from the main barn. The current owners have further enhanced the appeal by luxuriously refitting the bathrooms and main kitchen as well as constructing an additional holiday cottage and oak framed detached garage. Only an inspection will convey the great potential and individual appeal of this impressive property.
