This inspirational conversion of a former pumping station offers buyers a unique opportunity to acquire an exceptional home designed to meet the exacting standards of modern sustainable development. Transforming the 1930s building has been a labour of love for the present owners and in combining the amazing living space with ultra low energy consumption using a ground source heat pump and photovoltaic arrays they have succeeded in creating a home for the future.
The two impressive and spacious main open plan reception rooms maximise the amount of natural daylight through skylights and are exceptional in terms of their size and height, offering the possibility of creating individual living spaces such as a library or television area. The bedrooms are well proportioned with a separate wing allowing the possibility of 2 guest bedrooms or even a small annexe wing for a dependent relative or nanny. A particular feature of this wonderful home is the Lower Ground Floor where there are two substantial cellars or basement areas which provide the possibility of a variety of uses such as an indoor pool, a home cinema, a recording studio, a gym or games room or even a wine cellar. Other possibilities for the property could include the adaptation of the existing 200m2 reservoir to build an indoor pool with gym or orangery subject to obtaining the necessary consents
The property sits in a well screened plot of 0.4 acre in a quiet hidden part of Nutbourne off a tranquil private unmade lane. The location is ideally situated for those who enjoy country walks or the odd visit to the local Inn and with the mainline station to London just a few minutes by car this is a truly exceptional home for anyone commuting to the city.
Nutbourne is a charming small rural West Sussex hamlet comprising several individual homes with a highly regarded local Inn surrounded by countryside and vineyards. Shopping and local amenities are available in the larger towns of Pulborough and Storrington while good road links and a mainline station in Pulborough make this an ideal location for anyone commuting to Gatwick, London or the South Coast.
