Rocks Paddock is an exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial brand new contemporary three storey house of some 5,834 sq ft. From the property there are fantastic south westerly views over its own land towards the South Downs. With the extensive use of full height glazing and wrap around balconies the design takes maximum advantage of the property's stunning position.

Internally the house has a wonderful sense of light and space and the extensive glazing provides a seamless connection with the garden and stunning views beyond. The property has been finished to an exacting standard and with great attention to detail. Features within the house include a magnificent 57'6'' drawing room/dining room which has three sets of glazed doors leading out onto a balcony and a further set of doors leading onto a wide sandstone terrace. If required it would be possible to divide this spectacular room to provide a separate area to be used as a cinema room.

The kitchen/breakfast room has been designed to maximise storage, optimise space and is positioned to take advantage of the fabulous views over its own land and surrounding countryside towards the South Downs. Designed by and supplied by Sylvarna, there is a generous range of units and a central island using oak and white fronted units with composite stone surfaces, complemented by Neff appliances, a Caple dual zone wine cooler and Quooker boiling tap.

All of the bedrooms with the exception of one have glazed doors giving access to either a balcony or a wide sandstone paved terrace.

All of the bathrooms and shower rooms are fitted with Porcelanosa fittings and tiles and the walk-in showers are all generous in size and each of the bathroom/shower rooms are individual in design and feature ceramic tile flooring with underfloor heating.

Other features of note include a stunning oak, steel and glazed staircase, extensive engineered oak flooring, a Sky satellite system with points in all bedrooms and main living areas and underfloor heating throughout the house (wet system).

Attached to the northern side of the house is the integral double garage with an electrically operated up and over sectional garage door to the front and a further door giving access to the garden.

Rocks Paddock is approached from a minor country lane via a shared entrance driveway and then via its own long private entrance drive which leads down to the house. Immediately adjacent to the drawing room/dining room/kitchen/breakfast room and the lower ground flloor accommodation are two wide sandstone paved seating areas. Beyond the seating areas the grounds have been attractively landscaped being principally laid to lawn. Bordering the western side of the garden is a paddock area. Within and bordering the grounds are some magnificent mature trees. Situated to one side of the entrance drive is a substantial two storey weather-boarded office building/store with light and power. From the garden there are some wonderful south-westerly views over the surrounding countryside to the South Downs.
