A beautifully appointed top floor apartment with far reaching views to the South Downs. The apartment forms part of Monks Manor, a country house conversion with fabulous communal grounds including a swimming pool and tennis court. The current owner has improved the property significantly, with a particular feature being a large open plan living room/kitchen ideal for entertaining.
Monks Manor is surrounded by its own grounds which include formal gardens, a tennis court and a swimming pool. It is approached by a long driveway and there is plenty of parking for residents and visitors, and a garage in a block. The manor house sits in an elevated position with far reaching views to the South Downs.
There is an entry phone system and the front door opens into a communal entrance hall, with oak paneling and a grand staircase which leads to the first and second floor. This top floor apartment has been stylishly refurbished by the current owner and features a distinctive open plan living room and kitchen arrangement that is ideal for entertaining.
The sitting room has a wall mounting for a flat screen tv, around which the seating is arranged. There is also room for a table and chairs, whilst the kitchen is fitted with a range of white high gloss units, black worktops and a range of integral appliances.
The master bedroom is a good size with a wall of build-in wardrobes and spectacular far-reaching views. Bedroom two is more modest in size, but could easily double up as a study/occasional guest bedroom. Both bedrooms are served by a very stylish and luxurious shower room which is fully tiled and has a floating sink, built in vanity unit and glazed shower cubicle.
As well as formal gardens and grounds, there is communal use of a heated swimming pool and tennis court. There is also a stable block and fenced paddocks, should a resident want to keep horses (subject to committee agreement.)
