Full description

This beautifully converted and uniquely appointed double storey detached flint barn, which is believed to have originated from the 17th Century, has been sensitively transformed in 2010 by the current owner to exacting standards throughout. The property is ideally positioned on the northern outskirts of the picturesque and quintessential rural Sussex village of Pyecombe, surrounded in each direction by glorious open countryside, whilst being conveniently situated eleven miles north of the seaside resort city of Brighton.

This majestically presented home, which enjoys uninterrupted and far reaching views of the South Downs, is situated on a no through lane close to a foot and bridle path leading to the National Park. Pyecombe itself offers a parish church, a village inn, a golf club, a horse riding school and a stud farm. A service station, with a 'Marks & Spencer Simply Food Store', is positioned only a moment's walk away. Hassocks Station, with its frequent and direct services to both Brighton and London, is around two miles distant. The primary road link between Brighton and Gatwick Airport of the A23 is also located within very easy access. Furthermore, the larger market town of Burgess Hill, where the popular 'Triangle' leisure complex is located, is also conveniently reached only a few miles north.

This modern and creatively transformed residence, that still retains a wealth of its original character features and boasts nearly 1,200 square feet of open plan living, provides a new owner the opportunity to occupy a property that is both versatile and practical. The current incumbent has cleverly interspersed a refined mix of fixtures and fittings, with more time-honoured traditional aspects in mind. These include natural materials which complement the environment such as English oak beams soaring overhead, a wood burning stove which is beneath a cantilevered ceiling, a hand-made oak kitchen with polished concrete surfaces, Indian sandstone flooring throughout the ground floor, as well as wood shutters to all windows. The accommodation benefits from energy efficient windows, which maximise the productivity of the under floor heating and water system which is controlled by an air source heat pump. Modern convenience is supplemented by an integrated sound system, in addition to three levels of mood lighting to the majority of the rooms, as well as external up lighting.

The arrangement of this smartly interpreted family residence principally comprises a large reception space with two sets of casement doors providing primary admittance to the property, a kitchen area with plumbing and space for a range of appliances further incorporating a breakfast bar fashioned in a 'horse shoe' shape, as well as a galleried space on the first floor that can be utilised as a study room or storage area that is accessed via an ingenious sliding staircase. Completing the settlement on the ground floor is a guest bedroom next to a walk in wet room that incorporates a dual headed shower, atmospheric lighting and a cleverly concealed washing machine. The completely private master bedroom on the first floor is accessed via a contemporary style glass and steel staircase past an exposed brick wall and accommodates enough space for ample fitted storage cupboards and wardrobes. From the bedroom, there is a luxury en suite bathroom with a free standing bath and a separate shower, whilst stable doors to the side open onto a sun terrace to the east of the building with steps down to the garden patio, which is perfect for evening 'alfresco' dining.
