Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A stunning conversion of a handsome brick & flint period stable building creating a stylish family home of impressive proportions within walled gardens in the midst of this popular village on the edge of the South Downs National Park.

Once part of the Funtington Hall Estate, this handsome stable building was converted in the 1960's and subsequently comprehensively refurbished and extended by the present owners to create a stunning family home. The interior has a great sense of light and space with beautifully proportioned rooms and large windows flooding the interior with natural light. There are three principal reception rooms including a 25' long sitting room with bi-folding doors opening south-west on to its walled gardens, a generous dining room and an impressive kitchen/breakfast/family room with vaulted ceiling, sky lights and large south-facing arched window looking on to the courtyard and approach. This room has been fitted with a specially designed kitchen including an extensive range of integrated appliances and has a large sitting area with wood-burning stove. The practicalities of living in the countryside are well-catered for with an adjacent large boot room providing plenty of storage and a well-appointed cloaks/wet room. There is even an outside shower for the dog!

The layout of the accommodation is also highly adaptable with two bedrooms and a study reached by way of a separate hallway adjacent to the cloaks/wet room. This arrangement could allow these rooms to be used as a self-contained annexe if required.

Five bedrooms in total mean that in addition to the ground floor bedrooms there are three first floor bedrooms with further shower room and impressive principal suite with its own bathroom, specially designed wardrobes and large south-facing arched window.

Double gates open on to a handsome brick-set courtyard approach set about with attractive brick & flint walls. In addition to the casual parking, there is a large garage with roller door and nearby workshop/store room. The west facing walled garden is approached either from the courtyard or by way of bi-folding doors from the sitting room. A sheltered terrace with up-lighting looks out over the garden and lies adjacent to the newly finished heated swimming pool with further sun terrace surrounded by brick & flint walls. The swimming pool is heated by an air source heat pump and also has a UV filtration system. Deep borders are planted with a beautiful display of traditional perennials and climbers whilst a number of trees provide focal points including Judas tree, silver birch, apple and cherry. A manageable vegetable garden has been created beyond the lawn with traditional beds and soft fruits. To one side of the terrace a brick & flint archway leads through to a further area of sheltered garden, planted with young fruit trees and discreetly located wooden compost bins. A screened yard provides further concealed storage space and a wash-down area for dogs.
