Lot 1 - The Rectory (Outlined in red on the site plan)
There is understood to have been a house on the site of The Rectory since Domesday, and the current house is thought to have replaced a thatched parsonage. The house is believed to date from the early 1800s and is mentioned in Nikolaus Pevsner’s book The Buildings of England – Sussex.

The house has a wealth of period features and provides spacious, light and well-arranged accommodation over three floors. The property has been in the same ownership for just over 40 years, and is now in need of updating. Features within the house include sash windows, panelled doors, window shutters, picture rails, attractive fireplaces and a wide bay window in the drawing room. The elegant reception rooms are ideally arranged for formal and informal entertaining and are complemented over the first and second floors by a principal suite, six further double bedrooms, a further bathroom and a further cloakroom. Attached to one side of the house is the integral garage.

From the road a wooden five-bar gate leads through an old flint wall to the property’s sweeping drive which leads up through the grounds to the front of the house. To one side of the drive is a substantial period brick and flint former coach house providing garaging/workshop space.

The principal garden lies to the rear of the house and is divided into a number of ’outside rooms’ which are enclosed in part by old flint walls. Trees within the gaden include Mulberry, Walnut, Fig and Quince. Immediately to the rear of the house is a charming sheltered brick paved seating area with two small lawns beyond. To the rear of the integral garage is a sheltered courtyard garden with a brick and flint former stable and gardener’s WC to one end. A short flight of brick steps lead up from the seating area to a wooden gate which gives access to the lovely walled garden which is laid principally to lawn with an ornamental pond and a number of fruit trees. To one corner of the walled garden is a flint and tile garden store.

Just outside the walled garden there is an area of lawn, from which there is a lovely view over the surrounding countryside with the sea in the distance. From the parking area the back drive leads passed a neighbouring property, Rectory Lodge and back to the road. The garden at The Rectory provides a very special setting for this beautiful historic village house.

In all about 0.9 acre.

Lot 2 – Rectory Lodge (Outlined in blue on the site plan)
The lodge lies on the opposite side of the back drive, a short distance to the north of The Rectory and presents painted rendered and flint elevations under a principally pitched slate tile roof. Internally the lodge provides bright and well-arranged accommodation over one floor. The sitting room/dining room has an open fireplace and a stable door leading to a small area of garden lying to the front of the lodge which is enclosed by a mature hedge. Lying a short distance from the rear of the lodge is a parking space.
