    About this property

    • A superbly presented modern detached house, built in classic Sussex style with partially tile hung and brick elevations under a tiled roof, with a generous oak framed open porch. The house was completed in 2020, and was finished to a high specification throughout; it has been further improved by the current vendor with the addition of electronically operated gates across the drive and significant landscaping to the gardens, including a detached office/gym and workshop. The property benefits from the remainder of a 10 year NHBC guarantee.

      The property is extremely well-appointed and offers spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. Its comfortable and stylish interiors include engineered oak doors, a mix of luxury flooring including engineered oak, carpet and porcelain tiles to the bathrooms, and soft neutral colours for walls, tiling and fittings. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and in all bathrooms.

      The full layout and extent of the property can be seen on the floorplans; points of particular note include the dual aspect sitting room, a wonderful space with a Clearview woodburning stove and bi-fold doors to the rear terrace. There is a cloakroom, and a study lying off the hall with access to terrace. The triple aspect kitchen/dining/family room is an ideal space for day-to-day life, with plenty of space for table and chairs, a family area and bi-fold doors to the terrace. The kitchen is fitted with an excellent range of gloss wall-hung and under-counter units under quartz worktops. Appliances include a gas hob, a Neff double oven and an integrated Bosch dishwasher; there is a separate utility/boot room with space for appliances, and an adjoining cloakroom.

      There is a beautiful bespoke oak staircase rising to the first floor. The luxurious principal bedroom suite has a Juliet balcony with views over the rear garden, a dressing room with fitted shelving and wardrobes, and a spacious en suite bathroom with an oval free standing bath, walk-in shower and a pair of basins with drawers under.

      There are three further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a family bathroom.

      The house is set behind tall Portuguese laurel hedging and wooden electronically operated gates. These open outwards, giving access to the gravelled driveway, which offers plenty of space for parking ahead of the double garage and house.

      To the side of the garaging is an attached woodstore, and a sandstone terrace, which captures the morning sun. This leads to the side and opens out to span the entire rear elevation of the house. The gardens have been beautifully landscaped, with a water feature as a focal point, a gazebo with space for hot tub or table and chairs, a herb garden and well-stocked beds. At the rear is a detached timber framed home office/gym and workshop.
