The property is approached through a five-bar gate leading to a gravel turning circle and an oak framed barn style garage. The gardens extend to the rear of the property and consist of terraced lawns, with a variety of mature trees, clipped hedges and planted borders. There is also a large area of woodland which extends beyond the formal gardens. A paved terrace adjoins the rear of the house, which is suitable for entertaining and from which to enjoy the view. A paved courtyard area leads from the driveway to the entrance.
Inside the property is a tiled entrance lobby, off which there is a utility room, cloakroom and two useful storage rooms. The lobby then leads into central hallway which has an oak floor and a turning staircase leading to the first floor. Under the stairs is a doorway and steps to the cellars. The oak flooring continues into the Kitchen/Breakfast room, which is fitted with a cream shaker style kitchen, with granite worktops and a large central island. The sitting room is magnificent and benefits from high ceilings, ornate plasterwork and a large central feature fireplace. The dining room is another generously proportioned room with high ceilings.
Upstairs, there are six bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms, including two en-suite facilities. The master bedroom is striking in terms of the space and also the views from the three windows. It has a walk-in wardrobe and a large en-suite with a walk in shower and ‘his and hers’ basins. There are two further double bedrooms on the first floor; one of which has an en-suite shower room, the other being served by a family bathroom. On the second floor there are three further double bedrooms and a shower room. The two bedrooms to the rear of the property enjoy far-reaching views to the South Downs.
