The property is within the South Downs National Park and enjoys stunning views across to Cissbury Ring and the surrounding countryside.

Nepcote House has immense character and charm and many original period features.

It has a fascinating history, having once been a local inn known as The Race Horse and later renamed The Running Horse, land lorded by George Nicholls a retired coastguard and reputedly visited by Thomas Hardy in the 1860s.

The Running Horse finally closed its doors in 1926 and is immortalised in the book ‘Sheep Spirits and Smugglers’ by Sarah Woodcock.

The kitchen was previously the skittle alley for The Running Horse.

This impressive house was subject to a major refurbishment programme in 2013.

Nepcote House has now been sympathetically restored and improved by the present owner, retaining all of the original features, character and charm.

The house has been rewired throughout together with full re-plumbing of both the hot water and central heating systems, incorporating a Megaflo high pressure hot water system and new condenser gas boiler, new double glazed Georgian-style sash and bay windows throughout and also benefits from a completely new roof.

Nepcote House is not a listed building but is treated as ‘a property of significant local interest’.

Guide Price of £1,150,000.
