Copyhold is a beautifully presented country house of great character situated in an enviable elevated position with spectacular southerly and south westerly views to The South Downs. The accommodation in the main house flows extremely well and there is an atmosphere of charming informality. The surrounding terraces, which are superb suntraps, are accessed around the house. Indoor/outdoor living is very much the lifestyle offered by Copyhold.
Close by, there is a detached ancillary 1 bedroom cottage with sitting room, kitchen and shower room. Nestled withing the gardens there is a summerhouse log cabin with a bar and shower room. From the summerhouse veranda there are superb southerly views.
Passing the house, the drive continues past extensive garaging and an area where there is planning consent for a further large barn to add to the existing outbuildings used for storage.
