PROPERTY SUMMARY 'Pitt Hill House' sits rather proudly elevated just off the cross roads of interlinking lanes at the bottom of a protected valley within the South Downs National Park. The house was individually designed and built taking into account the orientation and location, the gardens and driveway are designed to wrap around the house to the main front door which is at the rear. The total grounds extend 3.091 acres and incorporate two paddocks both with trees as well as formal manicured gardens. It is unique, having its own postcode, ample family living space with the added advantage of an outdoor swimming pool (in need of updating) and a pool house as well as a selection of former stables, garaging and store rooms. The primary accommodation which provides a total of 4,314 sq ft of living space arranged predominantly over three floors with a further lower ground floor incorporating storage rooms and a double garage. On the reception level is an open plan 'L' shaped hallway with doors to primary rooms including sitting room, drawing room, dining room, study, cloakroom and kitchen / breakfast room from which there is access to a separate utility room and boot room, on the first floor are two good size bedrooms, the master having an en-suite dressing room and bathroom with the second bedroom having a 'Jack & Jill' bathroom, on the top floor are two further double bedrooms, a cloakroom and large walk-in storage cupboard.
The sweeping driveway provides ample car parking and the gardens are well stocked with manicured hedges, shrubs and bushes. The rural setting provides the attraction of being part of a small community with only half a dozen local neighbouring homes and views in various directions down the valley and hillsides to the rear and front. Having no forward chain, early internal viewing of this interesting family home is strongly recommended in order to appreciate the potential and the location on offer. The approximate total internal area amounts to 5,964 sq ft.
