About this property

  • High Point is a magnificent contemporary home, designed by WKK Architects, and subsequently improved by the current owners in 2018. The property offers light and spacious accommodation arranged on a graceful curve over two floors. A vaulted reception hall, high ceilings, light wells and glass balustrades ensure the principal living accommodation property is flooded with natural light.

    The property has the benefit of underfloor heating, air conditioning to the main reception room, Lutron lighting and a home automation system.

    The centrepiece of the house is the superb open plan living space comprising sitting room, dining room and kitchen with full height glazing framing the spectacular panoramic views to the South Downs, and bi fold doors opening to the balcony which spans the rear elevation. The kitchen is exceptional, with Corian work surfaces, an excellent range of cabinetry and Miele appliances.

    Beyond the sitting room is a spacious study, with bespoke fitted shelving and its own entrance via the rear hall.
    On the lower ground floor is a generous cinema room with screen and surround sound side, and a dressing room.
    The master bedroom suite has two well-equipped dressing rooms, a bathroom, a shower room and French doors to the pool terrace.

    There are four further bedrooms, all en suite, with built in wardrobes and access to the pool terrace.

    High Point is approached from Brook Green by a secure electronically operated gate, which opens to the resin driveway, ahead of the garaging, a timber framed building offering three bays with automatic up and over doors and storage over, with an attached two bay open car port.

    The grounds lie mainly to the north and west of the house and are mainly laid to lawn and meadowland. There is a detached gym and garden store.

    To the west of the house is an inviting heated swimming pool set in a decked terrace, with cedar pool house, open kitchen and fire pit, creating an ideal space for entertaining.
    The garden is open to the meadow, which stretches gently away to the west, creating a wonderful sense of space. In all, about eight acres.
