Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This deceptively spacious and versatile detached house occupies an enviable corner plot position at the very end of the almost unknown private cul-de-sac section of Wickham Drive. In 1986 just a handful of properties were constructed around Wickham Place, an attractive 1920's mansion house just to the East of the bustling and vibrant village High Street.

Extended to our vendor's specification in 1991 the property now enjoys three separate reception rooms, one of which could be utilised as a ground floor double bedroom if required. There is a contemporary white downstairs cloakroom/WC, a lovely refitted (2013) kitchen breakfast room with quality integrated appliances and solid black granite worktops directly overlooking the rear garden. Adjoining the kitchen / breakfast room is a matching refitted utility room with butler sink, space for domestic appliances and cupboard concealing the gas fired central heating boiler (renewed in 2008 and serviced annually). The lounge/dining room measures 22'8 x 14'6 is double aspect with favoured South and West aspects, a lovely natural stone fireplace and fitted cast iron log burning stove.

On the first floor a landing accesses all bedrooms, the master bedroom being double aspect and including a dressing room and separate spacious en-suite shower/wet room. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom/WC. Southerly views to the South Downs National Park are enjoyed from both the master bedroom and bedroom three.

Outside, a double width brick paved herringbone driveway provides ample off road parking and access to the detached brick built double garage, both garage doors are electrically operated and our vendor has partitioned a work shop area in one part of the garage (easily removed if preferred). There is a small area of low maintenance front garden with rockery, flower and shrubs with a brick paved pathway leading to the front door. The rear and side gardens are considered a feature of the house enjoying favoured South and Westerly aspects respectively and enclosed almost entirely by brick walls, fabulously well stocked with many raised borders, a substantial stone patio adjoins the house, there are also a number of fruit and specimen trees.
