Why you’ll like it:

Set back from the leafy street the appealing frontage has a flawless, contemporary finish which continues throughout the house. A paved path slopes up past a smart hard standing and front garden to this beautiful chalet which has been architecturally reinvented and remodelled to become what is effectively a new build with energy efficient windows and doors, new roof, fresh electrics and plumbing, and a high level of insulation. Inside, even the spacious porch is heated and beyond it the hushed hallway, with discreet cupboard for coats, sets the sophisticated tone of the interior design with the soothing hues of Farrow & Ball, matching oak doors, sumptuous thick carpet and views through to the verdant garden.

The family room with kitchen diner, utility, study and garage:

Designed to entertain in fabulous, LA style this inviting space flows across almost the whole of the back of the home with bi-folding doors by the sophisticated living space and French doors in the dining area opening out to the scented planting and dynamic landscaping of the sunny garden. With energy efficient heating and three levels of lighting it is a room for all seasons, and an expert eye has ensured that the glamorous kitchen is safely tucked away from the in/out flow behind a sociable peninsular island topped with glittering quartz. Ideal for family celebrations or enjoying with friends, everything is to hand from a central touch induction hob beneath a discreet extractor. An experienced cook’s kitchen, the Neff combi and fan oven are at eye level next to the fridge and freezer at the dining end of the run, and the dishwasher is also integrated.

Tucked away with direct access to the garage so sports kits can go from car to machine – and you won’t get wet in the process of unpacking the boot- the sleek utility area is unusually spacious with ample extra storage and space for a tall fridge and separate tall freezer, and at the far end a tranquil study is a private and bright place in which to work with a door to the garden for coffee breaks in the sun.

With a remote controlled door, the garage is a generous 19’8’’ x 8’6’’ (6m x 2.6m) and is currently used as a store.

The garden, summerhouse and covered store:

Expertly designed for all year interest and surrounded by a sea of neighbouring gardens, this is a peaceful oasis after a busy day in the city. Child and pet friendly, newly planted flower beds wend around a lit, level lawn – a feature difficult to find in a city built on the Downs- and at the far end, a freshly painted summer house has both power and potential. By the house, the shimmering sandstone terrace is ideal for al fresco lifestyle our city is known for and leads to a discreet covered store for a big barbeque.

Three ground floor bedrooms:

All decorated to the highest standard these three spacious double bedrooms have an elegant designer finish. At the front, the guest suite has fitted wardrobes and relaxing open views through the big box bay window, and across the hall, the second large bedroom, also at the front, is not overlooked either. Snuggled into the centre of this floor, the quiet nursery is has 11’9’’x 8’10’’ of floor space to play with and tucked around the corner, the luxury bathroom with fabulous ambient lighting above and below the handbasin is large enough for both a contemporary bath with a shower attachment and separate walk in shower, which is right on trend with a dual head system.

The principle suite:

This private sanctuary forms the whole of the first floor and is all that you could dream of with a light and airy bedroom beneath skylights so you can unwind beneath the stars, and the large dressing area has sophisticated storage in place. The south window almost fills the far wall to frame a leafy vista, whilst air conditioning ensures that you remain cool during hot summer nights. Spa like, the en suite is spacious and stylish with a powerful dual headed shower system, and touches of glamour include a lit mirror and heated rail for towels.

Owner’s Secret:

“Light and airy in the summer, it’s warm and cosy in winter. We love entertaining and the easy flow of the ground floor is perfect for parties at any time of day as we have installed remote controlled lighting in the garden, which we shall miss! The master bedroom is a lovely retreat where we wake up to birdsong and the neighbours are friendly and considerate.”
