An exceptional country house in a wonderful, unspoilt rural setting on Bramdean Common with long views to the south.


Breach Plain House is situated in a unique rural setting within the peaceful Hamlet of Bramdean Common and surrounded by spectacular views over the adjoining countryside to the south, chalk-downs and woodland; all within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and The South Downs National Park. The grounds extend to approximately 1 hectare (2.4 acres) and is accessed through electric gates and a long gravel driveway lined with Cherry Blossom trees, leading down to the house and garaging with its clock tower and weathervane. This has consent to convert the garage side wing and office above into a Garden Annexe. The final part of the drive is laid to brick paviours and entered through low brick walls and capped pies and lanterns.

The grounds with its striking mature and specimen trees throughout, are studded with many varieties of trees such as a Jade tree, yews, horse chestnut and rowan. A magnificent beech hedge shelters the beautiful and well-established gardens. In their midst, surrounded by deep herbaceous borders overflowing with foliage and colours, lawns and terracing, is a swimming pool and its folly garden. To the south

of the property two orchards offering apple, peach, walnut, plum, pear and cherry trees.

At the top of the garden, there is a hard tennis court and pavilion. Finally, there is a further outbuilding, with planning consent for a 2-bedroom Garden Cottage.

Leading from here are the reception rooms including the drawing room which is a bright, triple aspect room with exposed beams and fireplace with gas woodburning-style stove and wonderful rural views. The dining room is another delightful room, with wooden floors and a magnificent fireplace and finally there is the study leading into a wine cellar.
