The idyllic nature of the downland villages of Folkington and Jevington belies the experiences of their earlier Saxon populations who were obliged to fortify the tower of St Andrews church in Jevington to survive the assaults of pillaging Vikings.
These villages would, at a later date, also have to come to even closer terms with Viking descendants from Normandy.
Today the tranquillity of these dream like villages seems to be as secure as it could ever be and Rager & Roberts are offering heaven in the downs in the form of Jevington Glebe, which is close to St Andrews church, and Bypark which is on the edge of the park-like grounds of Folkington Manor.
Jevington Glebe sits within extensive gardens and has glorious southerly views over the adjacent downland countryside.
The accommodation offers scope for enlargement to fulfil the potential of its wonderful setting.
Bypark has been substantially enlarged and the spacious and immaculately presented family accommodation has, in addition to two large reception rooms, a magnificent 38’ x 16’ kitchen/family dining room. There are bi-folding doors capturing the lovely rural views and giving access to the extensively lawned gardens and a heated swimming pool.
The price guide for Jevington Glebe is £670,000 and for Bypark it is £895,000.
Viewing is strictly by arrangement with the sole agents Rager & Roberts – telephone 01323 430133.
