Henmead Hall is a beautifully presented house set in mature gardens, with superb South Downs views. This substantial property has been significantly refurbished by its current owners, and has many lovely features including stripped wood doors with deep architraves and polished stone windowsills.

Henmead Hall was built in the 1960s and provides an excellent and spacious family home, which is ideal for entertaining. The principal reception rooms share spectacular views across the gardens and paddock to the South Downs and access to the sandstone terrace through double glazed French doors. There is a cosy cinema/TV room and a well appointed gym/games room with sauna. The kitchen/breakfast room has an excellent range of wall hung and undercounter cupboards, granite surfaces and a central island.

On the first floor, the stunning master bedroom suite has been situated to benefit from the far reaching views, a dressing room with fitted wardrobes, and a superb en suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath, walk-in glass panelled shower, basin, WC and bidet. A private balcony is accessed through the French doors from the bathroom. There is a well appointed guest bedroom with en suite bedroom, and three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Henmead Hall is approached by a long tree-lined drive leading up to wrought iron gates. The property is set in lovely mature gardens with established shrubs and hedging providing a degree of privacy, yet being open to the south to provide uninterrupted South Downs views. The formal gardens feature a pond, and two covered wells, and are separated from the paddock and the woodland by a cast iron post and rail fence.

The swimming pool is sheltered and an ideal area for summer entertaining with space for a barbecue and the option of heating with its own boiler. The tennis court lies to the south east of the house, screened by rhododendrons.

The attached garaging has two remote controlled up and over doors and a workshop with light, water and electricity connected. Further machinery and garden storage is situated in the old garaging behind the swimming pool.

The Coach House and Stables lies across from the main house and is approached from the gravelled parking area by a brick archway, and has its own fully enclosed brick courtyard. The Coach House provides ancillary or guest accommodation, and has an interconnecting door to the open plan Stables.

In all about 10.3 acres.
