Description
An impressive Grade II listed period house located on the edge of Lavant village at the foot of The Downs, believed to date from the 1760s. The property, which is of rendered and colour washed elevations under a tiled roof, was skilfully divided in the 1980s and has been lovingly renovated by the present owners. Gainsborough House offers 3 generous bedrooms (one with ensuite), with modern bathroom and kitchen fittings but retains its original character with well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings, open fireplace, AGA and superb, recently built, conservatory to the rear. The house enjoys far reaching views over farmland to East Lavant village and across to The Downs and Goodwood racecourse. To the rear of the house is a good sized mature garden and detached studio with off-street parking to the front.
