Smale Farm is an extremely pretty part tile-hung West Sussex farmhouse dating from the 16th Century. The property has been in the same family for over 50 years and would benefit from some modernisation.
The house has many period features including oak beams and a large inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. The property has an entrance hall, sitting room/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room with pantry, study, lobby, cloakroom, plus four bedrooms a bathroom.
The barn outside also has a sitting room/dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom and two bedrooms plus a bathroom and attached store rooms. The outbuildings consist of three stables with a hay store and an extensive chicken shed plus a modern barn with a carport and storage for farm machinery.
Both properties have cottage gardens and there are also paddocks and woodland. Close to the farm are two ponds with a third further away in a delightful pastoral setting. The majority of the 34 acres are grassland with small pockets of woodland. The property is currently run as a pheasantry, and also two lots of extensive kennels all of which is planned to be removed when the present owners leave, unless negotiated separately.
