Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity for the buyer looking for their own project and representing a wonderful opportunity to build a dream home. The site is situated in a beautiful rural location with a southerly aspect to the rear backing onto farmland and amounts to about 5 acres in total comprising a mixture of informal gardens and an area of bluebell woodland. The existing property has an expansive floor area in excess of 4500 sq ft (including the garage block) and in recent years a number of planning permissions have been obtained for substantial extensions including a pool house, the conversion of the existing triple garage block into a separate cottage and for the erection of new garaging. Details of the planning applications are available on the Chichester District Council planning portal. There is also the potential to site the new property further back on the plot (subject to the usual consents). 

Plaistow is a tranquil village situated just over the Surrey/Sussex border. The village has a pretty church, Sun Inn public house, a general store/post office and a village primary school and playgroup. The neighbouring larger towns' of Godalming, Haslemere and Cranleigh provide more comprehensive facilities, whilst for commuters there are mainline stations at both Haselmere and Billingshurst, for direct access to London Waterloo and London Victoria respectively.
The larger village of Billingshurst provides a good range of amenities including schooling for all age groups, a leisure centre with swimming pool complex and a mainline railway station. The larger provincial centre of Horsham and Gatwick International Airport are about 7 and 21.5 mile respectively.
 

A unique contemporary home is set in grounds of approximately 5 acres which includes a delightful Bluebell wood.

The large, flexible accommodation is set over two floors with the additional benefit of a detached triple garage with a large office space/store room above. The ground floor offers a large impressive reception hall with cloakroom, a formal drawing room with doors leading to an impressive size terrace overlooking the rear garden and grounds, a dining room, generous kitchen/breakfast room and utility room. Additional accommodation includes family room, studio and large store room.

The first floor provides a principal suite with a balcony overlooking the grounds and three further bedrooms along with a family bathroom.

We have been informed by the current owner that plans were previously approved by the local planning authority (now lapsed) for the construction of a much larger property with floor space of approximately 10,000 sq ft. constructed around the current dwelling. The new architect designed home would provide six bedrooms, five bathrooms and five reception rooms, a swimming pool complex, detached eight car garage and a two bedroom detached staff cottage. As this planning approval has now lapsed, these plans are now subject to planning permission and any new owner would be required to re-submit them to the appropriate planning authority for approval.
