Full descriptionSituated in a quiet area of the picturesque downland village of Alfriston, this stunning property forms part of a substantial Manor House that is believed to have been built in 1904 by Lord Montagu as a wedding gift for his daughter. Montagu House has been tastefully renovated to retain original period features including inglenook fireplaces to the lounge and dining room.
Accessed from Kings Ride, a gravel driveway leads to the prestigious White Court development where Montagu House can be found.
From the entrance, a generous lobby area leads through original oak doors to the drawing room, kitchen and dining room.
A tasteful modern designer kitchen includes integrated appliances with a fridge/freezer, separate fridge, double electric oven, gas hob, microwave and washing machine. Under floor heating is provided beneath a limestone floor.
A period dining room with oak beams and an inglenook fireplace provides expansive views towards the South Downs. Patio doors lead onto a private terrace to the rear of the property and access to the extensive communal gardens.
Double oak doors lead through an attractive reception area and down into a triple aspect drawing room, originally built as a billiards hall and retains its original oak window benches. Substantial oak timbers form an impressive crown and pinion vaulted ceiling and there is a large inglenook fireplace, incorporating a stone mullion window. Glazed doors provide access to the rear garden and a further private rear terrace, ideal for summer evenings.
In the hallway is a cloakroom with WC and basin, and next to it, a further storage room with tumble dryer. On the first floor lie three substantial double bedrooms, two of which benefit from built-in wardrobes. A modern bathroom includes bath, basin, WC and shower cubicle and is provided with underfloor heating.
Upstairs a large master suite provides a bright and airy space with dual aspect windows and ample storage. The windows frame glorious views across open countryside to the South Downs.
A door leads to a spacious en-suite shower room with individual shower, bath, WC, basin and walk-in storage area.
The extensive communal grounds extend to 2 acres. They are maintained to a high standard and include two hard tennis courts for the use of residents.
Professional maintenance of both the private and communal garden is included in the rent. Ample off road parking is provided to the front of the property in a private courtyard.
Ideally for people re locating and requiring a rural village environment, whilst enjoying the close proximity of Lewes, Glyndbourne, Seaford and Eastbourne. Also within easy access to Sussex and Brighton Universities.
