Candovers Barn is a wonderful Grade II listed period gem with enormous charm set in a peaceful hamlet within the South Downs National Park. The Oak framed barn was converted into a unique private house in 1991, and the current owners have lived here for the last 25 years. The impressive, vaulted Great Hall is a wonderful space for entertaining, with large windows on two sides flooding the room with light. A Clearview wood burner and full height brick chimney provide a cosy focal point to the room. French doors open onto a sheltered stone terrace with pleasant views of the garden. The country style kitchen /breakfast room has an AGA at its heart. The Bordeaux Pine staircase leads to the main bedroom with dressing room and exposed oak beams, a bathroom and an additional bedroom. A second staircase leads to a third bedroom and shower room, with a fourth bedroom next to the Great Hall. EPC exempt.
Approached via a gravel drive set back from the lane, Candovers Barn is surrounded by the most beautiful established garden. The lawn is interspersed with herbaceous borders breaking up the space into interesting areas for relaxation, with sitting areas positioned to enjoy the garden views. There are some beautiful specimen trees and shrubs including Magnolia, Apple, Cherry and Quince, and a mature willow overlooking the pond. A wooden pergola is draped in Climbing Roses and Clematis. A sheltered stone terrace provides a quiet place to sit adjacent to the Great Hall. The lavender framed vegetable garden comprises four raised vegetable beds and a greenhouse. The paddock to the side of Candovers Barn is approximately an acre and is suitable for grazing. A Rookery Barn was built in 2003 and provides parking for two cars and lockable storage/workshop. The guest accommodation/bedroom five with en suite shower room is a good size, and affords lovely views of the stunning garden.
