Partridges comprises a handsome and very good size family house believed to date from the early part of the 20th Century and affording bright & airy accommodation of great character & versatility. The South facing house includes an interesting mix of architectural styles with attractive elevations of mellow brickwork, part render and part tile hanging and decorative timber work and under a pitched tiled roof interjected by tall brick chimneys. To the West end, the house encompasses a range of former stables that historically formed part of the large neighbouring residential property to the West, Kingsfold.

The very appealing accommodation is spread over two floors and includes a particularly spacious main living room with its very impressive vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, plus wood burning stove. Leading from this room is the excellent large family kitchen/dining room with slate finish tiled floor and wide bi-fold doors leading out to and providing a wonderful outlook over the South facing terrace, garden and thence distant views to the Downs. The kitchen area includes solid wood worktops and a range of low level cupboards and points for built-in appliances, with another interesting feature being the original stable doors which have been retained to the outside to show the building's original roots. An adjacent utility room offers useful additional storage and appliance space and, with its separate access, would also work well as a boot/dog room. Leading from the other side of the main living room is a very bright South facing family sitting room with feature fireplace and french doors to the garden and this room also connects to two double bedrooms and the entrance hall. From the hall, there is South facing study/bedroom 5 and a modern shower/cloakroom.

A staircase leads to the part galleried first floor landing with doors to the two principal double bedrooms each with fitted cupboards and also to a modern bathroom. It is felt that with the size and number of rooms to the house, that there is good potential for a flexible accommodation layout and including with potential for division to create an annexe area if required (subject to any necessary consents).

The attractive property is approached by its own private driveway with parking area for several cars to the front of the brick double garage and which also includes a separate workshop to one side. The pretty garden surrounds the house and with the principal area being to the South side and which includes a wide paved, decked and gravelled terrace area adjoining the house and being ideal for al-fresco dining. Beyond the areas of lawn there are an interesting mixture of mature trees, shrubs and planting adding colour and interest and also enhancing privacy.
