A substantial and picturesque Grade II listed house with a beautiful mature garden with some stunning views towards the South Downs. Just under one acre.
The Eugh is reputed to date from the 1500s or earlier with later additions and is originally understood to have been a medieval hall house. The house provides interesting and well-arranged accommodation over three floors with a wealth of period features.
From the entrance hall double oak doors lead through into the elegant 20-foot triple aspect dining room which has a lovely oak floor. The drawing room includes an open fireplace, extensive built-in book shelving and cupboards and glazed doors give direct access to the garden. The study/snug is a cosy, atmospheric room and also has an open fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with an extensive range of built-in cupboards and includes a breakfast area, a larder cupboard and a large china cupboard. Subject to obtaining the necessary consents, it is thought that the china cupboard could be incorporated into the room to enlarge the kitchen/breakfast room.
The ground floor accommodation is ideally arranged for formal and informal entertaining. The first floor is approached via two staircases, one of which leads to the particularly spacious principal suite which comprises bedroom, bathroom, dressing room/bedroom and laundry. Also arranged over the first floor is a further bathroom and three further double bedrooms - all with built-in cupboards. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms and a further bathroom.
The Eugh is approached via a private entrance drive which leads past the garaging and up to the front of the house where there is a large parking area. Climbing the front elevation of the house is a mature rose and clematis. The principal gardens lie to the west of the house and have been beautifully planted and landscaped over the years. Adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room and drawing room is a wide brick paved seating area which is ideal for al fresco dining and has a lovely view over the garden.
Beyond the seating area the garden is laid to sweeping expanses of lawn bordered by various well-stocked and colourful beds and interspersed with a number of beautiful mature specimen trees. To one side there is a brick and flint summerhouse/garden room. Beyond this building is the kitchen garden and greenhouse.
From the garden there are some magnificent views through the trees towards the South Downs. Situated on the eastern side of the house there is a further attractive area of garden enclosed in part by a mature clipped yew hedge and through which a pedestrian gate gives access to the lane. Immediately adjacent to the house is a further paved seating area which is considered ideal for breakfasting. The garden at The Eugh provides a stunning setting for this picturesque and historic house. Just under 1 acre.
