3 Bedroom, House | The Green, East Dean

A very rare opportunity to secure one of the finest downland properties in the East Dean area flanked by scenic countryside yet within walking distance of the picturesque village green.

Commanding breathtaking views, this important detached house is believed to have been constructed in the 1920s and to a remarkably high specification in the Arts & Crafts style. Significantly and tastefully improved by the present owners the accommodation retains delightful features of its period with fine oak joinery, handsome fireplaces and outstanding views from the principal rooms. A large games room, constructed by a previous owner, connects with the enchanting flint built folly. An inspection will convey the exceptionally high merit of this very special property.
