Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Seldom available in this sought after downland village, this substantial Edwardian detached family home comes to the market for just the fourth time since its construction in 1908, with 3086 square feet of accommodation and well proportioned rooms one can understand why there have been so few previous owners. Many of the character features associated with the Edwardian era have been retained including mosaic floor tiling to the entrance vestibule, picture and dado rails, open fireplaces, sash windows etc.

A covered entrance porch opens into the vestibule with double doors through to the spacious hall, a wide tread staircase leads up to the first floor and a concrete staircase beneath the stairs lead down to the substantial cellar. There is a bay fronted sitting room, separate dining room, a family room and a conservatory that can be accessed either via the entrance hall or through the family room. The family orientated kitchen/breakfast room is double aspect and has an adjoining utility room with walk-in larder. Also on the ground floor there is a small bathroom with a deep seated plunge bath.

On the first floor, a sizeable landing accesses all rooms and a staircase leads up from here to the second floor, there is a bay fronted master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom fitted with a contemporary suite and having a double ended bath, there are two further double bedrooms on this floor plus a spacious family bath and shower room.

The second (top) floor provides two further double bedrooms and stunning views over roof tops to the South Downs National Park.

Outside, approached from the road via twin wrought iron gates and a long block paved driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles and leading via twin timber gates to the coach house, presently utilised by our clients for storage but considered to offer conversion potential subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Both the front and rear gardens are beautifully landscaped and maintained. The front garden has a substantial pea shingle bed interspersed with exotic plants and shrubs and several shaped topiary bushes, the whole enclosed by a mature hedgerow that provides a good degree of seclusion. The rear garden is mainly laid to level lawns and is again interspersed with shaped topiary trees and shrubs, there is a substantial patio adjoining the coach house including a BBQ area under a timber pergola covered with mature climbing plants and vines.
