DESCRIPTION: The Property possesses absolutely stunning views that are almost certainly the finest and, in our opinion, probably unrivalled in the whole of Sussex. This idyllically located property is an impressive and extremely attractive detached substantial sized five double bedroomed Late Victorian / Early Edwardian country residence, which is set within its own beautifully landscaped grounds of in excess of 3 acres, in addition to having the added benefit of a detached two storey brick-built annex / home office.
The current owners have lovingly maintained and enhanced this fine-looking country residence, which now enjoys extensive and sizeable luxurious accommodation throughout. The enhancements and renovation works have been carefully designed to encapsulate and incorporate the abundance of natural light to further brighten every corner of every room, as well as embracing the most fabulous panoramic and far-reaching breath-taking views that completely encircle the home from all sides.
There are two existing luxury ensuites, as well as a further luxury family bathroom / shower room, with the possibility of also incorporating another ensuite shower room to bedroom three, subject to planning, if required. All of the five bedrooms are double in size and are accessed from the full-length landing, from which there is ample opportunity to access the large lofts / roof voids with a further staircase, should a second-floor conversion be sought, subject to planning.
The downstairs accommodation includes a wonderful reception hall, two studies, a most amazing and generous sized open plan luxurious bespoke kitchen / breakfast room which features a fantastic oak-beamed vaulted ceiling and a further adjoining general dining area.
