Tenure: Freehold

Nestled in the glorious countryside of the South Downs National Park this 1970's architect designed detached house has wrap around gardens, five sunny bedrooms and a double garage as well as off street parking for guests. With glorious views, this mono roof design creates light and height as well as an opportunity to create a one bedroom annexe should you want one. Inside, faultless reinvention has created a seriously glamorous home ideal for entertaining with a cosmopolitan kitchen diner and fabulous glass bath in the master suite. Perched on a hillside in the picturesque village of Rodmell, although you feel a million miles away from the stresses of the city, Brighton Gatwick and Lewes (which has a station serving the airport and London), are all an easy commute.

Standing well back from and proud of a road connecting you to Lewes or the coast - so you won't get snowed in - a bridle path is at the end of the driveway and this sun filled home has an unusually high level of finish. Precious period detail includes a rare, solid granite staircase whilst the soaring windows designed in 1974 to frame stunning views are now energy efficient.

The kitchen diner

Celebrating family life and friendship, the fabulous kitchen diner folds open to a paved terrace making al fresco dining easy. Guests can dine whilst enjoying the scents and birdsong of the garden whilst the working area of the kitchen is safely tucked away behind a breakfast bar which has a limited edition Smeg touch induction hob beneath an AEG hood. Three levels of lighting are perfect for parties and twin Smeg ovens ensure there'll be enough food to go around. The curved edges of the spectacular stone surfaces from Italy is confirmation of a family friendly orientation, and there's a big boot room/utility and useful cloakroom carefully tucked away - both with meticulous attention to detail.

The master suite, study / annexe

Private and peaceful, the master suite is a delight to return to after a busy day. On the ground floor of the east wing of the house, the bedroom opens to morning sunlight and abundant garden. Restful proportions instantly relax, ample fitted wardrobes have original doors, sensor lighting and also lead to the glamorous en suite bathroom - with bespoke glass bath and continental fittings - which looks over the garden to rolling fields. 'Jack and Gill' to a room next door used as a comfortable home office, this part of the house was intended to form an independent annexe when needed, so the home office has hidden plumbing for a kitchenette keeping your options open.

The living room

Full of sunshine and magnificent protected views which pour through all external walls, the vaulted living room has clean lines culminating in a Scandinavian stone fireplace providing warmth and mellow character. The south west wall folds gently to a broad balcony which makes the most of a far reaching vista and has permission for stairs down to the garden, and inside has scope for zoning with built in seating beneath the picture window to the Downs an inviting touch.

The guest suite

Quiet and calm with garden views which lead to open countryside, your guests will love this fuss free haven which has plenty of wardrobe space and en suite bathroom in a classic black and white.

Two first floor double bedrooms & family bathroom

Ready for your move, both pristine double bedrooms have plenty of character and remarkable views over the Ouse Valley towards the County Town of Lewes and Firle Beacon. Perfectly presented in an idyllic setting, neither are directly overlooked.

The luxurious family bathroom is bright and cheerful with ambient coloured lighting for the little ones- and young at heart- and it has everything you need including natural light and high spec dual head shower above the bath.

The gardens & garage

Wall free as the grounds are surrounded by luscious, open Downland, the gardens wrap around the house with ample space for play as well as paved areas to ensure smooth dining - one of which is at the far end for private grown up suppers when children or guests have retired for the night. So large the grounds get the sun all day, planting is imaginative with secret nooks and crannies to explore for the children. At the end of the drive, where the bridle path begins, the double garage has power and a workshop, so there are interesting possibilities there subject to the usual consents.

A quintessential English village, Rodmell was once home to Virginia and Leonard Woolf and has local amenities including a family run pub and a lively community. Despite it’s picturesque rural setting the village has recently gained high speed broadband. The opera house of Glyndbourne and thriving high street of the medieval castle town of Lewes are within easy reach as are bridle paths and walks of the National Park - one running along the end of the driveway! Sitting proud above the valley of the River Ouse, you can enjoy the restful pace of village life knowing that the bustling towns of Lewes, Newhaven and Seaford are close by, all offering fashionable shops, restaurants and bars as well as plays and music. The beach is not far and the coastal City of Brighton & Hove is a reasonable commute - about 20-30 minutes. For those needing to venture further afield, the railway station at Lewes, with a fast and regular service to Gatwick and London, is only 10 minutes away as is the port at Newhaven with its ferry service to Dieppe and access to the coast road.
