Substantial portion of an elegant period country house with outstanding southerly views
Wye House is a superb period property, forming a major portion of Courtlands, an elegant Victorian country house which was subsequently converted into eight properties.
Wye House is situated in the south west corner of the house, and the accommodation is mainly arranged on the first floor. It is a superb property with many interesting period features including high ceilings, sash windows and picture rails.
The property benefits from its own impressive entrance hall on the ground floor; stairs lead up to the conservatory, currently used as a dining room and enjoying lovely views over the surrounding grounds. Doors give access to the spacious private roof terrace, which has plenty of space for table and chairs, creating a wonderful spot for eating and entertaining.
The kitchen/breakfast room has space for a large table, a good range of fitted wood cabinets, a fridge freezer, and space for a range cooker and dishwasher. There are glazed interior doors to the dual aspect sitting room, with a working fireplace and southerly views.
There are five bedrooms, most with fitted cupboards, and two have basins; they are served by a recently re-fitted shower room and a family bathroom. There is a further office/box room and plenty of cupboard space on the landing, which leads on the rear entrance and fire escape.
The apartment extends in all to 2,624 sq ft, with an additional 432 sq ft private cellar space. The floorplans give an excellent overview of the full layout and extent of the property.
Courtlands is approached by a sweeping gravel drive, with an entrance on Top Road and an exit in Chilling Street. Wye House has allocated parking immediately outside the property, and a single garage located in a block of four lying to the north west of the main house. The residents of Courtlands enjoy shared use of the delightful landscaped gardens and grounds which surround the house. A formal lawn extends away from the south of the building, beyond which are outstanding views over the adjoining countryside to the South Downs. To the east of the house is a further formal lawn and a number of informal areas, interspersed with shrub and flower borders, trees and hedgerows.
A service charge of approximately £240 per month covers buildings insurance, maintenance of the building including communal areas and grounds, drainage and a sinking fund.
I love the proportions of this property, the high ceilings make the rooms feel really spacious. The views from the grounds are outstanding.Rohan Vines
