An exciting opportunity to acquire this spacious detached family home with a SELF CONTAINED ANNEXE. Built in the early EDWARDIAN period the property has many original features which are both charming and intriguing. The location allows great COMMUTER LINKS TO LONDON, with the train station just 4 minutes walk away. Original wooden floors cover almost all of the downstairs living area, with period fireplaces complimenting many rooms.
On entering this house, one is instantly struck by the high ceilings and beautifully restored original chandelier roses. The house comprises of seven good sized bedrooms, two of which are within the annexe. The whole premises has undergone a total renovation from top to bottom, with exceptional attention to detail.
The principal living area comprises an impressive modern kitchen with a beautiful granite island and a stunning lantern, flooding the whole room with natural light. The kitchen includes a dining area looking to bi-folding doors and views of the large rear garden. Also to the ground floor are a utility, gym and a further living area.
Upstairs echoes the same dramatic proportions as the ground floor, with three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is particularly luxurious with its own walk in dressing room area, leading to an en suite bathroom. A large top floor provides a further bedroom and en suite bathroom. The top floor also provides remarkable views of both the South downs and the sea.
The property comes with its own self-contained two-bedroom annexe with a kitchen, dining area, bathroom and courtyard garden. With one of the spare rooms of the main house being on the ground floor the owner has the opportunity to close off an additional door to the house and create another annexe bedroom, making it a three-bedroom dwelling for more guests. The annexe's courtyard garden is separate to the house giving potential guests total privacy.
To the rear of the main house we find a vast parking area for approximately seven cars and a garage positioned in the corner. This area would lend itself well to the prospect of future building projects, although it is up to the purchaser to make the relevant enquiries and seek the appropriate permission.
A large south facing front garden and rear lawn give ample outside space.
