The property was designed by a well known conservation architect Oriel Prizeman, built during 2005/2006 for the current owners to their own high specification with well proportioned accommodation extending to 3,422 sq ft over three levels. The house has Keymer hand made clay tiled and rendered elevations beneath a tiled "cat slide" roof and benefits from under floor heating at ground floor which has both tiled and hardwood floors. There are quality Rationel factory painted double glazed windows and doors throughout and the gas central heating system benefits from solar panels providing back up system for hot water. Of particular note is the large, open plan kitchen/breakfast/dining/family room, part vaulted and fitted with a comprehensive range of cabinetry with built-in Neff and Bosch integrated appliances beneath granite working surfaces. There is also a central granite topped island and separate utility room and walk in pantry. Within the playroom/family room are matching built-in cabinets for concealing TV and hi fi equipment and provides excellent space for storing children's toys and games. From here are double doors which access a private, 'cobbled' terrace which lends itself to an outdoor entertaining area.
To the north is the drawing room with west facing windows, a central open fireplace and wooden floors along with a door leading to a west facing loggia whilst to the front of the house is a library/family room accessed via the main hallway.
There are 5/6 double bedrooms on the upper two floors including a master suite with dressing room and an en suite bathroom with grey marble mosaic tiled walls and separate oversized shower cubicle. There are good views from the two rear bedrooms overlooking the gardens and school playing fields beyond. The two family bathrooms, one on each of the upper floors, are also fitted with high quality sanitary ware and have tiled floors. On the second floor there are two bedrooms with vaulted sloping ceilings, one in particular is very generous, the other is currently used as a study and also benefits from the same garden views. The property, which has been designed with energy efficiency and modern living in mind, can be seen in greater detail in the attached floor plans.
The property is accessed via automated gates onto a granite stone double driveway which extends the width of the property and is enclosed by yew hedging with painted picket fence beyond.
