Description

Highgate House was built in 1922 in the enduring Arts and Crafts vernacular. The current owners have embarked on a fabulous transformation of the property during their tenure, largely rebuilding and extending this now fine family home. The attention to detail and the design is evident throughout providing an abundance of natural light and flowing accommodation perfect for modern day living, yet retaining the original character of the property.

Situated at the end of Heather Way, itself a no-through private lane of detached properties, the aptly named Highgate House is set behind a pair of imposing automatic gates, and is the last house on the lane. The property adjoins the National Trust owned nature reserve, Sullington Warren. This 60 acre heathland is a haven for walkers and is classed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) containing rare or unique flora and fauna.

The entrance gates open on to a sweeping drive with ample parking in the turning circle and further on in front of the outbuildings. The house is accessed via broad stone steps to the entrance that opens into a generous hallway where you are welcomed by cream marble floors and a profusion of natural light throughout all the living spaces. To one side of the hallway there is a cosy room complete with the original fireplace. A perfect retreat for winter evenings but has the versatility to be used as a comfortable study. Opposite is the formal living room, a well proportioned room with woodburning stove which extends into the dining room or, if preferred has folding panelled doors to provide privacy between rooms. The dining room flows into the bespoke kitchen which has a stunning central island unit containing a prep sink and ceramic hood for preparing food. With oak and granite worktops and a range of integrated appliances together with a Rangemaster Professional Plus cooker the kitchen has been designed for family living but with efficiency in mind. The kitchen, dining room and living room have the benefit of views over the gardens which surround the property and there is access from all sides through numerous French doors to the terraces which encompass the house. A separate utility room is accessed from the kitchen.

Upstairs there are four well appointed bedrooms off the part galleried landing with panelled walling. The principal bedroom is a dual aspect room and has the benefit of a balcony to enjoy the views onto the garden and Sullington Warren. This suite has a dressing room and a large ensuite bathroom resplendently finished in marble with a lowered tub and separate shower. The second bedroom has an ensuite shower room. Two further bedrooms enjoy views of the South Downs and are served by a comfortable family bathroom. All bathrooms within the main house together with the shower room in the office have under floor heating.

There are a range of extensive outbuildings providing the flexibility to work from home, together with the ability to accommodate a dependent relative or staff within their own dwelling. The annex provides comfortable living with a sitting room, fitted kitchen/dining area and bathroom plus a first floor loft room with cloakroom. In a separate building is an office with adjoining room used as a gym, together with a shower room which has under floor heating; and the substantial double garage with electric doors which also comes with a useful room upstairs.

The very private gardens are a particular feature of the property which sits towards the middle of its plot surrounded by sun terraces perfect for alfresco dining or simply relaxing. The garden has been landscaped to provide interest and variety with stone walling, sleeper lined stepped terraces, a wild copse, a garden pond with waterfall feature and an area to grow vegetables. At its edge are mature beech trees and firs that blend seamlessly with the adjacent National Trust land on two sides of the garden.
