A substantial family home set in lovely mature gardens within this sought-after private estate.
Chantreys is a substantial detached home, believed to date from the early 1950s but having been the subject of improvement and a large extension in the mid-90s. The result is a generously-proportioned family home, offering over 3,150 square feet of spacious and well presented accommodation with the added benefit of a versatile detached annexe/office. Characterised in a traditional Sussex style with brick, half tile-hung elevations, the house is further enhanced by its setting in established and well-stocked gardens of nearly an acre.
The full extent of the house can be seen on the floor plan. Of particular note are the elegant adjoining sitting and dining rooms: the large sitting room featuring a marble fireplace with inset coal-effect gas fire, and both rooms having French doors opening to the terrace.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of beech wood units and a central island with granite worktops; there is a range oven with six-ring gas hob, an integrated microwave, and spaces for a dishwasher and a larder-style fridge/freezer. The kitchen opens to the family room and is served by a utility room; a study and cloakroom complete the ground floor. There are five bedrooms on the first floor lying off a galleried landing. The master bedroom has an adjoining dressing room and a luxury en suite bathroom with suite including a bath, shower cubicle and steam room; the remaining bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and a further Jack & Jill' shower room.
Chantreys is surrounded by beautiful established gardens, dotted with well-stocked shrub and flower borders, and bounded by high hedging and some mature trees allowing a good degree of privacy.
Electrically operated metal gates open to a brick paved driveway flanked by areas of lawn, leading to both the house and the integral double garage. The detached annexe lies to the south of the house and comprises a versatile annexe/office space, shower room and loft storage room over.
The east facing rear garden is very well enclosed by mature hedging and trees. A part-covered stone terrace extends across the rear of the house, leading out onto an expanse of lawn; the swimming pool is on the south-east side and is served by a timber pool house. In all, about 0.9 of an acre.
Maresfield Park is a private estate. The annual charge for maintenance is £55 for households without vehicles, or £125 for households with one more vehicles (2020).
Some of the light fittings are excluded but may be available by separate negotiation.
