Set at the end of a leafy cul–de-sac lane with extensive gardens and a double garage, this beautiful home is luxurious, comfortable and glamourous. The property has been handcrafted to the highest standards by local tradesmen using locally-sourced materials, such as bricks from Danehill, stone window cills from West Hoathly and oak from Balcombe. The standard of finish throughout is exceptional, and the traditional half tile-hung Sussex-style exterior with an oak-framed porch provides a warm and welcoming approach to the property.
The double front doors open into a wonderfully spacious entrance hall, perfect for welcoming friends. The hall leads to a large, light and airy open-plan kitchen/dining/day room with two sets of French doors opening onto the paved terrace and garden. The well-planned kitchen incorporates high-performance Bosch appliances, a wine cooler, and space for a plumbed-in American-style fridge-freezer. The island breakfast bar, contemporary worktops, 5-burner gas hob and high-level electric double oven/microwave will delight any cook or host. The dining/day-room space provides the ultimate flexibility for family living, informal meals and/or formal dining to meet the needs of any family.
The living room is a beautifully conceived space, featuring an attractive multi-fuel stove in a large inglenook fireplace with decorative brickwork and an oak beam. French doors open onto the terrace and garden, making this another perfect space for entertaining family and friends.
The separate family room is light and spacious, and could be used as a casual sitting room, study, playroom or possibly a sixth bedroom on the ground floor as required.
The ground floor also has plentiful storage, a utility room with space for a washer, dryer, pet baskets and boots, plus a downstairs cloakroom.
The attractive bespoke stair case with stylish chrome spindles and oak handrail leads to the landing, with two sun-tunnels bringing in more natural light to minimise lighting costs. There are five double bedrooms, three bathrooms and an airing cupboard upstairs. The sumptuous master bedroom has a walk-in dressing room with fitted shelves and hanging rails, in addition to an en-suite bathroom with twin basins and walk-in shower. The principal family bathroom has a free-standing bath, walk-in shower cubicle, and attractive decorative floor. The second family bathroom has a big walk-in shower, vanity units and spectacular feature vinyl flooring.
Outside, the detached double garage has power and light, with two separate external store rooms. The large, level gardens to the front, side and rear of the property have been mainly laid to lawn, and there are several mature trees in the front garden. The gravelled drive lies behind traditional timber gates.
Heating is provided by a high-performance energy-efficient gas-fired central heating system, and a set of photo-voltaic solar panels located on the south-facing roof of the garage will help to reduce electricity bills. The high levels of insulation and double-glazing will also make this home warm, draught-free and economical to run.
