              About: We bought our dream home, but are unable to live in it full time at present due to overseas work commitments.

              Why Brighton:
              Located within walking distance of the village centre, whilst being sufficiently isolated from it.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
              The property has uninterrupted country and hillside views, it is inside the South Downs National Park, with direct private access to the South Downs Way.
