About this property

  • High Tree is a superb new house, completed in late 2020 and offering exceptionally generous accommodation set in a plot of around two acres. Features include engineered wood flooring with underfloor heating to the ground floor, timber framed double glazed windows, oak doors, Italian porcelain tiled bathrooms with Villeroy & Boch fittings and generous proportions throughout.

    The focal point of day to day life is the stunning open plan kitchen/breakfast room. This bespoke kitchen has handcrafted and hand painted cabinets and drawers, with modern Corian surfaces and an extensive range of integrated Bosch and Neff appliances. The large central island can comfortably seat six. Three sliding doors give access to the terrace, and the adjoining utility room has side access.
    The kitchen is open to the sitting room, which has bi-fold doors framing the views across the garden, and a wood-burning stove.

    There are two further reception rooms, offering flexible space which could be suitable for formal dining room or study, and family/TV room.

    The first floor offers an impressive and spacious galleried landing. The principal bedroom has French doors offering views across the surrounding landscape and giving access to a long balcony spanning the east facing rear elevation, creating an excellent place to sit and enjoy the views over the garden. The principal suite has the benefit of a walk-through dressing room with plentiful storage, and a spacious en suite bathroom with walk-in spa style shower, free standing oval bath, two basins with drawers under, a WC and heated towel rail.

    There are four further bedroom suites, and an office arranged over the first and second floors.

    High Tree is approached from Slaugham Lane via a driveway which leads to the electronically operated gates, in turn opening to the private driveway parking and garaging ahead of the house.

    The attached garage has two bays, each with electronically operated doors.

    The house also benefits from independent accommodation benefiting from its own entrance and en suite shower, which could also be suitable for either a generously sized home office or guest accommodation.

    The extensive garden is a particular feature of the property, stretching away to the east of the house, with a terrace close to the house. The garden is predominantly flat, with a slope up to the south east, and is mainly laid to lawn, with a mix of panelled fence, post and rail fencing and hedging at the boundaries. There are a number of mature trees planted, and High Trees has its own substantial area of woodland at the foot of the garden. The plot extends in all to over two acres.

I was really impressed with the large plot these new build properties offer.
