The Property
Parkfield was designed and built by the current owners, who were fortunate to acquire an amazing site around 15 years ago almost at the foot of the breathtaking and every changing natural scenery of the South Downs. Parkfield has been beautifully constructed and finished to a very high specification with modern fittings throughout. The principal reception rooms are light and bright and are designed to take advantage of the stunning panoramic views over paddocks that belong to the property and replicate a delightful Parkland setting. The property offers good flexible accommodation including a ground floor bedroom suite with adjacent sitting room and its own discrete access, which is very handy for a carer, nanny or dependent family member. It could also easily be used as a sitting room or study.

The elevations are part stone, part brick with red brick quoins, with some exposed timbers and hard wood double glazed windows under clay tiled roof.

The ground floor has underfloor heating throughout and the benefit of several decorative wood burning stoves which complement the high levels of internal insulation.

The property’s design and structure deliberately caters for further adaption if required. Please ask the agent for details.

Parkfield is set on a high bank on the Southern side of the exceptional Downland village of Elsted. The property has the benefit of both access to the front door and a vehicular access to the land to the rear of Parkfield via a small track which also leads walkers discretely to a public footpath. There is ample parking for several cars as well as the benefit of an oak-framed open bay garage which currently accommodates a collection of cars.

Outside
The gardens have been carefully planted both to the front and rear. To the front of the house mature hedging, fragrant climbing roses and decorative flower beds create a delightful enclosure which welcome you to the front door.

To the rear, in keeping with the outstanding countryside environment and amazing aspect, there is a mix of mature hedges, set within beautifully maintained gardens. Whilst the garden is mainly laid to lawn, it is interspersed with decorative gravel paths and flower borders which lead to various terraces in order to take advantage of the sun and the views. The vegetable garden features a very high specification Alitex greenhouse, raised beds and a garden shed. To the front of the house there is a two bay open garage block which has an adjacent secure store with a gardener’s WC and basin.

Within the dining/family room, the double sliding doors open within the wall cavity which creates a living space that invites in the incredible surroundings. The back door also has the benefit of a small porch and covered area idea for shaking off muddy boots and cleaning them in the handy Belfast sink.

For the car enthusiast, one of the garage bays includes an inspection pit. There is a paddock to the south and west with post and rail fencing and a field shelter/single stable completes the outdoor facilities.

The Location
