About this property

  • Built in 2007, Sedona is an impressive detached family home characterised in an attractive Sussex style with brick, part tile-hung and part timbered elevations. The house is located in the sought-after Maresfield Park private estate, set down a long gated driveway in established, well-stocked gardens of about 0.8 of an acre, allowing privacy without seclusion. The spacious accommodation is arranged over two floors, extends to a generous 4,127 square feet and is well presented, with features including working and feature fireplaces, high ceilings, picture and dado rails, and timber framed double glazed casement windows.

    The full extent and layout of the house can be seen on the accompanying floor plan. The welcoming entrance hall lies central to the ground floor, off which lies a ground floor shower room and an L-shaped study fitted with bookshelving and cupboards. There are three large reception rooms: the drawing and dining rooms are ideal for formal entertaining and feature handsome brick fireplaces with inset woodburners; the comfortable dual-aspect sitting room has a gas-fired wood-effect stove.

    The kitchen has been attractively fitted with an extensive range of modern shaker-style cabinetry, with granite worktops and a central island; appliances include a four-oven gas-fired Aga set into a brick chimney breast, a Siemens electric oven, five-ring gas hob and dishwasher. French doors open to the garden and there is plenty of space for a large table and chairs; the kitchen is served by the adjoining utility and boot room which has space for the usual laundry appliances and additional fridges.

    There are five spacious bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate shower room lying off the galleried first floor landing, together with a sixth bedroom or dressing room with fitted wardrobes. All bar one of the bedrooms have bespoke fitted storage, and the generous principal suite has an en suite shower room.

    Sedona is accessed via a long, gated driveway which opens to a generous parking area ahead of the house and detached double garage. The house sits centrally in its gardens, well-enclosed by hedging, fencing and mature trees, including some handsome pine.

    The rear garden is south facing and mainly laid to lawn, with two paved terraces adjoining the rear of the house, both with retractable awnings over. The lawn is edged and interspersed by well-stocked and colourful borders; outbuildings include an open-sided timber breeze hut with power connected ideal for outside dining, a timber-framed tractor barn, timber shed and greenhouse.

    In all, about 0.81 of an acre.
