Full description

Occupying a truly outstanding location, this fantastic family house offers a unique opportunity to acquire a family home in a beautiful semi rural spot, with wonderful views across stunning countryside. The house has extensive accommodation, which is both versatile and well presented. An internal inspection is strongly recommended.

Freshfields has been in the same ownership for over twenty years. The house has a contemporary design and has been significantly improved by the current owners. Approached over a sweeping driveway, the house has "gravitas" and is perhaps even more impressive from the rear. With over 4,000 square feet, excluding the outbuilding and garage, the property has excellent space.

The layout of the accommodation takes full advantage of the stunning views, as the main sitting room and dining room are on the first floor. There are wonderful views of the downs to the north and over fields and the garden to the south. There is also a south facing balcony taking advantage of the southerly views. The kitchen/breakfast room is a superb family room, being large enough to accommodate a generous table and being well fitted with a range of units. This room provides the focal point for the ground floor. There is also a separate utility room. There are bedrooms on both the ground floor and first floor, most of which are good double rooms. As the house has three staircases, it is perfect if there is a need to accommodate dependant relatives or a nanny/au pair.

In addition to the extensive living space, there is a double garage attached to the house, which has access to the gymn/games room. There is also a detached flint and brick outbuilding. This has been used as an office, but could have potential to be converted to an annexe (subject to the usual consents). The gardens and grounds are a particular feature. There is a large expanse of lawn to the front, as well as the rear. where there is also a large patio adjacent to the house. There is also a swimming pool tucked away in a discreet spot, beyond which is the hard tennis court. As previously mentioned, wonderful views in all directions are to be enjoyed.
