Substantial family house with superb South Downs views.
Fallbrook is wonderful detached house, originally dating from the turn of the twentieth century; the property was significantly extended to create a generous and comfortable home which has been in the same family for almost forty years.
Whilst requiring some updating, Fallbrook has clearly been a much loved property which now offers an excellent opportunity for the next owners to put their own stamp on, with a substantial footprint of light and spacious accommodation arranged over two floors, set in a pleasing situation with delightful views and spacious grounds.
The floorplans offer an excellent overview of Fallbrook's layout, please do refer to them for the full extent of the accommodation.
Points of particular note include the reception hall, which forms the link between the original house and the newer, south western portion. It has a striking full height window behind the main staircase, framing the outstanding views across the gardens to the South Downs beyond, which are shared by all rooms sited along the southern elevation.
The drawing room is an excellent space for entertaining all year round with French doors to the terrace; the conservatory is ideal for summer months.
The kitchen, which lies across the hall from the dining room, has a good range of bespoke wooden wall hung and under counter units, with composite surfaces and integrated appliances including two separate electric ovens and a five ring gas-fired hob. The kitchen is open to the breakfast room, which leads to the snug. Both the breakfast room and the snug have fireplaces fitted with wood burning stoves. From the snug, double doors open to the conservatory.
The master bedroom suite has access to a private balcony, and comprises a dual aspect bedroom and an en suite shower room with a well-fitted dressing room beyond. There are five further bedrooms (one with a shower and loft storage) and a study/bedroom seven, all served by a bathroom and separate shower room.
Fallbrook is approached from Plumpton Lane via a five bar gate which opens to a brick paved drive and hardstanding ahead of the house, offering ample parking.
To the south and west of the house lie the gardens, which are open to the paddock, creating a wonderful sense of space with the Downs as a dramatic backdrop. The heated outdoor swimming pool is enclosed by fencing, and has a raised deck for seating and a timber pool house for changing. There is a separate WC.
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with established shrubs and flowering bulbs planted. The paddocks stretch gently away from the house, with a stream running through. Within the grounds are two timber sheds and a breeze house.
In all, about 4.3 acres.
