Full description

A handsome Georgian-fronted, Grade II Listed residence of approximately 2099 sq ft (TBV), notably providing four double bedrooms and three reception rooms. Brook Furlong is perfectly situated in a tranquil position within this desirable village whilst being just moments away from the lively village centre which boasts a thriving community spirit and a number of amenities catering for everyday needs. Views extend from the first floor over rooftops across the village towards the South Downs and give a reassuring sense of the peaceful location. Understood to date from the 1800s with later additions and originally built for the village miller, this impressive residence stands today as an exquisite and elegant home having been extensively refurbished by the current owner to exacting standards throughout. The exterior of this quintessential home is faced with attractive grey brick which is accented by red brick dressings and quoins and beautiful Georgian sash windows. The property is immaculately presented - both inside and out - and is perfectly complemented by glorious gardens which wrap around the front, side and rear of the house being enclosed by flint walls. Internally, this much loved home has been meticulously maintained and decorated in an elegant neutral colour palette which enhances the traditional aspects and period of the house. Worthy of note is the remarkable 11 ft orangery - a wonderful and unexpected addition. The orangery is particularly bright being flooded with an abundance of natural light which flows from the vaulted double glazed roof and the windows to three sides. Also of note is the striking 15 ft kitchen comprising a range of modern white gloss fronted wall and base units with stone work tops, stainless steel fittings, 'soft close' doors and drawers and integral appliances by 'Neff'. An opening leads to the formal 14 ft living room which centres around a fireplace with a polished marble tiled surround and hearth and double doors open from here to the orangery. Also on the ground floor are the entrance hall, a further 12 ft reception room, a 12 ft dining room, a rear lobby with access to the rear garden and a useful cloakroom with a classic white suite. A two-roomed cellar - currently a laundry room and wine store - is approached from the living room and has power points, lighting and a radiator in each room. Stairs from the entrance hall ascend to the first floor where the accommodation continues and the views can be fully appreciated. The impressive master bedroom suite enjoys a 15 ft bedroom area, a dressing area with three fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with a luxury suite. There are two further double bedrooms (each with a fitted wardrobe) and a luxury family shower room with a linen cupboard. A further 29 ft x 10 ft bedroom occupies the entire second floor and enjoys the most glorious views towards the church spire and South Downs. Agent's note: we understand that this room could potentially be divided to create two separate rooms, subject to the relevant planning consents and permissions (TBV). Externally, the gardens are stunning and particularly private having been as equally beautifully and immaculately maintained as the house. Manicured lawns are framed by pristine borders and the meticulous planting of a variety of flowers, plants and shrubs throughout provide an abundance of colour, shape and form. The garden to the front includes wisteria, copper beech and many other trees. There is a brick paved terrace and a pathway which continues past the orangery to a gravelled terrace, surrounded to one side by a rose garden. The garden wraps around to the rear where it is predominantly laid to lawn with established trees, rose, rhododendron and well stocked raised beds. A generously sized barn of 29 ft x 11 ft offers an excellent storage solution and space to house vehicles if required. There is also a gravelled driveway located to the rear of the property, accessed via two gates from Sloe Lane. Agent's note: Energy Efficiency Rating D.
