An impressive Country House built from local stone at around the turn of the last century. The property commands an elevated position in the heart of the South Downs National Park. It has a swimming pool, staff flat, a tennis court and extensive garaging. A superb mini estate with a 4 bedroom converted Coach House and 2 Cottages as well as a 3 bedroom staff annexe attached to the house.
Selham House is an impressive and handsome Country House built from local Ashlar stone. It has been home to several illustrious families including The Cowdray family who are attributed many of the improvements and alterations to the house over the years, as well as the Maharaja of Bahawalpur who acquired the property in 1948.
The ground floor is graced by five elegant principal reception rooms together with an impressive entrance hall and reception hall with its fine staircase rising to the first floor. Serving these grand rooms is a newly installed modern kitchen with breakfast room and two substantial wine cellars. The first floor is arranged around a galleried landing with a substantial master bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom which can easily be connected to a secondary bedroom if required. There are eight further bedrooms on the first and second floors, two of which are en suite, and a housekeepers apartment on the second floor comprising a sitting room, 2 bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom.
The 3 bedroom staff annex is situated to one side of the house and has its own independent access. Nearby is a refurbished 1 bedroom single storey cottage.
Located at the back drive is a substantial 4 bedroom converted former coach house set within its own garden and with its own large estate building ideal for garaging, and an attractive 3 bedroom lodge cottage ideal for guests or staff.
The stunning gardens and grounds, which include a stream and lake, have largely been laid out over the last 20 years and fully complement the existing mature wooded grounds.
These include an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and two large garage buildings.
