Description

Downs House, approached by a gravelled forecourt, is a handsome, 6 bedroom family house believed to date from the 18th Century, built of attractive local brick, flints and sarsen stone, under a tiled roof and with sash windows. Downs House has many period features expected of a house of its age, and has fantastic potential to update further. The rooms are well proportioned and most have wooden flooring and open fireplaces giving it the feel of a traditional family home.

In addition is a 2 bedroom annex which could be incorporated back into the main house. 

The gardens in a total site of ⅔ acre are both to the front and behind the house. The latter is well sheltered by the churchyard.

Purchasers should check whether multiple dwellings relief can apply in respect of Stamp Duty.
