A substantial rural property in the South Downs National Park.
2 Receptions Orangery Study Kitchen/breakfast room 4 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms Double garage, store & office Garden This impressive, substantial family home has expansive living space and beautiful landscaped gardens looking out across paddocks and rolling countryside beyond. Originally part of a Victorian agricultural building, designed by the famous architect Alfred Waterhouse and converted into dwellings, this property provides a sense of grandeur to match its renowned maker.
The ground floor offers generous living space in the form of a splendid double-height sitting room with exposed wooden beams, a dining room, an orangery and a study. The study could very easily be converted into a utility room. There is also a kitchen/breakfast room with oak units and a two door oil-fired AGA with two AGA electric ovens.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and a family bathroom. The first floor is split into two sections, one on either end of the property, with the master bedroom and its en suite bathroom and dressing room accessed via one staircase, and a guest bedroom with en suite shower room accessed via the second staircase.
Set within sprawling grounds down a driveway shared with the other residences on the site, this property has plenty of outside space. There is a double carport, plus an additional garage or storage room, and an external office, detached from the house while the long gravel driveway provides plenty of parking space for guests and visitors. The landscaped gardens, including lawns and a large terrace, have been impeccably maintained.
Agents note: There is an additional paddock available by separate negotiation.
