    About this property

    • Chantreys is a substantial detached home, believed to date from the early 1950s but having been the subject of improvement and a large extension in the mid-90s. The result is a generously-proportioned family home, offering over 3,150 square feet of spacious and well presented accommodation with the added benefit of a versatile detached annexe/office. Characterised in a traditional Sussex style with brick, half tile-hung elevations, the house is further enhanced by its setting in established and well-stocked gardens of nearly an acre.

      The full extent of the house can be seen on the floor plan. Of particular note are the elegant adjoining sitting and dining rooms: the large sitting room featuring a marble fireplace with inset coal-effect gas fire, and both rooms having French doors opening to the terrace.

      The kitchen is fitted with a range of beech wood units and a central island with granite worktops; there is a range oven with six-ring gas hob, an integrated microwave, and spaces for a dishwasher and a larder-style fridge/freezer. The kitchen opens to the family room and is served by a utility room; a study and cloakroom complete the ground floor. There are five bedrooms on the first floor lying off a galleried landing. The master bedroom has an adjoining dressing room and a luxury en suite bathroom with suite including a bath, shower cubicle and steam room; the remaining bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and a further ‘Jack & Jill' shower room.

      Outside
      Chantreys is surrounded by beautiful established gardens, dotted with well-stocked shrub and flower borders, and bounded by high hedging and some mature trees allowing a good degree of privacy.

      Electrically operated metal gates open to a brick paved driveway flanked by areas of lawn, leading to both the house and the integral double garage. The detached annexe lies to the south of the house and comprises a versatile annexe/office space, shower room and loft storage room over.

      The east facing rear garden is very well enclosed by mature hedging and trees. A part-covered stone terrace extends across the rear of the house, leading out onto an expanse of lawn; the swimming pool is on the south-east side and is served by a timber pool house. In all, about 0.9 of an acre.
