GUIDE PRICE £1,000,000

Property Description: Guide Price £1,000,000 - £1,100,000. Set on an elevated position in a designated conservation area with stunning views over the surrounding downs is this gorgeous home. Originally built in the 60s, this traditional build has attractive features and has a wonderful "country home" feel to it throughout. Approached via an electric gated entrance and a sweeping gravel drive, the welcoming entrance hall has plenty of room to greet guests. Panelled walls and Parquet flooring flows from the hallway through to the split level, double aspect sitting and living rooms which have lovely charming beamed ceilings, a bay window and a stunning cream log burner to keep the rooms nice and cosy on colder days. Parquet flooring continues to flow to the dining room which also has a large fireplace with a log burner and beamed ceilings. The spacious, double aspect 18'1x18'9 kitchen/breakfast room had been neutrally decorated and was handmade. With Quartz worktops over base cupboards there is a butler sink and a range cooker with an induction hob, plenty of room for a family dining table and has French doors leading out to the patio which allows plenty of natural light in. Off here is a handy utility and separate boot room. A generous double bedroom with en-suite and WC complete the ground floor. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three of which are spacious doubles while the smaller room is currently being used as a home office, all of which have pleasing features and have been neutrally decorated. The main bedroom has a grand dressing room that has fitted wardrobes, storage and a dressing table and leads through to a spacious en-suite which features a stunning roll top bath, separate double shower, "his and hers" sinks over vanity cupboards, part tiling, sloping ceiling and gorgeous part exposed brick wall. The main bathroom is also tiled including a full length mirror tile and has a white suite with a shower over the bath.

Outside: Enclosed with established fencing and brick walls, this beautiful garden has been lovingly looked after by its current owners. The garden wraps around 3/4 of the property and has stunning sections where you can really take in the surrounding views. Accessible via the kitchen/breakfast room is a patio with plenty of room for garden furniture - perfect for taking in the views as well as al fresco dining. The hot tub has been carefully placed to really take in those views of the downs and enjoy the tranquillity that the area has to offer. There are established trees, border plants and a raised vegetable patch with a nearby aluminium framed greenhouse - ideal for those with green fingers or fancy a try at home produce. The outdoor studio is currently used as a gym and has a bedroom/office with an en-suite with power shower. This has been cleverly designed and has potential for a change of use, subject to the usual planning consents. The gravel driveway has room for four to five cars and there is a strategically placed electric car charging port. We approximate the plot to be 0.5 acres but advise all buyers to conduct their own research.

Please note: Both the hot tub and the range cooker are available for sale with the property, subject to negotiation.
