Full description

Field Cottage is a unique and bespoke detached residence - notably providing five bedrooms and three/four reception rooms - which stands majestically in a prominent, elevated hillside position orientated towards beautiful panoramic views across the surrounding rolling South Downs and the Ouse Valley, as far as Firle Beacon. Situated in an idyllic secluded position on a private lane, this substantial home has been vastly extended to provide a series of extremely capacious rooms with an overall square footage of approximately 3267 sq ft (TBV). The property is particularly fun and quirky and has been a much loved family home for many years. The stunning views from the numerous windows and doors give a reassuring sense of the semi-rural location and allow an abundance of natural light to flood the extensive living spaces which are particularly flexible in terms of use. On the entrance floor one is immediately greeted by an impressive entrance hall with a vaulted ceiling and a centrally positioned wide staircase which ascends to an 18 ft x 13 ft reception hall on the ground floor, currently a library. Also on the entrance floor is a cloakroom and a 16 ft studio with an approximate head-height of 6 ft 5 in. The studio is a former garage and has floor-to-ceiling windows and double doors to the front and numerous fitted cupboards. From the reception hall there is access to the principal rooms on the ground floor. Worthy of particular note is the voluminous 26 ft x 23 ft kitchen/day room - a double aspect space which offers all the pre-requisites for modern family living and entertaining with two sets of bi-folding doors opening to the garden, to an adjacent decked terrace and affording magnificent views. The well-appointed modern kitchen incorporates breakfast bars and comprises a range of wall and base units in a maple wood design, larder cupboards, a useful preparation sink and drainer, an integrated electric fan oven and hob, space for a range oven and for other appliances. There is also a utility 'area' with a butler sink and two large openings to the day room which also has a wood burning stove and a vaulted ceiling. Also on this floor is the generous living room of just over 35 ft in length - another double aspect space with a further wood burning stove and the rare and unexpected addition of access to a 14 ft roof terrace. Bi-folding doors to the rear of the room open to a further 17 ft reception room which has secondary access to the first floor via a spiral staircase and access to an additional cloakroom. Stairs ascend from the reception hall to the first floor where the accommodation continues and the views can be fully appreciated; 20 ft double aspect master bedroom with wardrobes with double doors and an en suite bathroom with a white suite including a double-ended bath with shower over, wash hand basin, bidet and w/c. There are four further bedrooms (two of which benefit from fitted wardrobes) and a family bathroom with a white suite. The majority of the windows and doors are double glazed and the property is served by oil fired central heating. Externally the gardens lie predominantly to the side of the property and are mostly laid to lawn. The gardens include a decked terrace adjacent to the kitchen/day room which provides a wonderful al fresco space with lavender planted to the borders along with a paved terrace at the top of the garden with an ornamental pond providing an additional beautiful seating area with views over the countryside and South Downs. There is also a timber shed, wood store, gated access to the lane to the side of the property and numerous well stocked flowerbeds throughout providing an abundance of form and colour. To the front there is a driveway affording ample off street parking. Agent's note: our vendor clients have advised us that the purchase price will include shares in adjoining paddocks (TBV).
