Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Nestled at the foot of the south downs just outside the National Park, High Trees is a superbly presented and extremely spacious family home situated within gardens and grounds of just under one acre. With south-facing aspects from the principal living rooms opening onto the substantial garden, the property, in our opinion is ideal as a family home or as a holiday letting investment. With eight bedrooms (all en-suite) and with five opening onto the garden or onto roof terraces, High Trees provides an excellent opportunity to form a holiday lettings business.

In recent years the property has undergone a substantial programme of renovation and conversion with the ground floor providing five reception rooms which includes the main living room, kitchen, large dining room, attractive breakfast room (with a glass roofed atrium), garden room and study/family room. Linked to the breakfast room there is a catering kitchen (separate to the main kitchen), which could form a utility room. From the entrance hall the main stairs leads to a landing off which are three bedrooms. The main bedroom is a particular feature with a substantial dressing room and contemporary en-suite bathroom. From the landing access is provided to loft/play room. To the rear of the house a second stairwell leads to guest accommodation which features a dressing area and a substantial roof terrace. The northern wing of the house is currently arranged over two floors and provides a further four bedrooms and dressing room. In our opinion this could be converted to form a substantial self-contained annexe.

The driveway to the property is approached via a private lane with ample off-street parking to the front of the house. Providing plenty of seclusion the property has many mature trees and hedging in the borders. Outside the breakfast room and main sitting room there is an attractive south-facing patio which leads to an expansive lawn with many flowering shrubs, plants and secret pathways. At the eastern end of the garden there is a tennis court.
