This is an exceptionally rare opportunity to build a bespoke house within the South Downs National Park, subject to any necessary consents. The plot does benefit from fantastic views through about one hundred and eighty degrees to the south and west over undulating farmland towards the South Downs. Adjacent to Rew Cottage is a pretty courtyard of Grade II listed, period buildings comprising Hesworth Cottage, which was formerly a pair of cottages, dating back to the 17th Century, constructed of stone and brick beneath a clay tiled roof. At ninety degrees to Hesworth Cottage is a stone built barn, believed to date to 18th Century, with part of the first floor converted to an ancillary flat, and an adjoining single storey building.
