A fantastic, detached residence in one of Ovingdean's most prestigious locations. The house was architecturally designed by the current owners father, an international renown architect. As a result, the house maximises natural sunlight, and life flows effortlessly through it.
The front garden is walled and gates could be installed very easily. The driveway and side path are laid in pale grey granite pavers. The front garden is mostly beds with some mature shrubs and trees. There are three large granite steppingstones which then lead to a raised deck, from which one enters the house through one of the solid timber double doors.
Entering the house into a sunny reception area which has beautiful green slate, at a lower level to keep shoes. The main floor is laid in bamboo, which carries through to the open plan kitchen and dining room with views to the downs and access to the front garden. Further into the hallway there is a WC with vanity sink and ample storage as well as a smart wall cupboard. Next to it is a well-presented utility area with large storage cupboards and the condensing gas boiler, and side door with stable door.
Also, from the reception area the house flows into a TV snug which has a part glass ceiling to bring westerly evening light into the centre of the house. From here timber French doors lead to the hallway, from which a large wooden sliding door opens to the games room. This has an open fireplace with driftwood surround, slate hearth and log cubbyhole. From here the quiet downstairs bedroom with great garden views, and dressing room and ensuite bathroom can be reached.
The ash staircase leads through a curved stairwell with an amazing glass roof that floods light through the house early morning, takes you to the first floor. A generous wide hallway leads to four bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room and a generous modern family bathroom with bath and shower. There are downs and distant sea views from all the front bedrooms. The rear bedroom has fabulous view over the back garden to the woods behind.
From the hallway a loft hatch can be accessed with drop down ladder which leads to a large loft storage room (5m x 5m) with Velux window. Two small doors in the sides allow access to the eaves storage areas and solar water tank, and water pressure storage tank. The Velux allows access to the roof for solar thermal panel maintenance.
The rear garden is an amazing space that extends to over 200 bounded by the original flint wall. The garden includes a patio area, a great place to enjoy alfresco dining even in the winter months. It has multiple layers and a vast array of flowers, mature fruit trees and shrubs. There are gravelled areas with raised vegetable beds, an ample space for growing your own vegetables. The garden also includes a greenhouse, woodshed, workshop/summerhouse and fire pit.
This warm and welcoming home is full of charm and character, the contemporary and stylish interior has been improved and the house extended during its lifetime by the current owners.
