GUIDE PRICE: £1,080,000-£1,125,000
Nestled in the picturesque countryside, just outside the popular village of Herstmonceux, this distinguished and historical detached Georgian influenced house offers an exceptional blend of elegance, comfort and modern luxury. With uninterrupted countryside views to the fields and far beyond and set in just under 1 acre (tbv) of formal gardens, with 5 bedrooms and an indoor swimming pool, this recently refurbished property is ideal for a family home in a semi-rural location.


Tucked away from the main road and approached via wooden entry gates to the garage complex and parking to the rear of the property or through a small gate to enter the front door, the house is situated in the middle of the plot with gardens wrapping around both sides. As you step inside this stunning Georgian residence, you are greeted by an atmosphere of refined elegance and modern luxury with neutral décor and natural light in abundance. All rooms are spacious and well-appointed, the triple aspect lounge has a feature fireplace which could be opened up to use with a wood-burner and has tranquil views to the extensive gardens and beyond as far as the South Downs. There is a large study currently utilised as an office, but could be repurposed as a formal dining room, 2nd sitting room or 6th bedroom.

The open plan kitchen/breakfast/dining room comprises a range of country style wall and base units for plenty of storage and features an open brickwork surround behind the built-in AGA cooker, terracotta floor tiles and beamed ceiling to give character to the original architecture. For convenience there is also another freestanding electric oven and hob, dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer. Continuing through the dining area, which has a large pine dresser, through the double internal doors to access the indoor heated swimming pool, offering a touch of relaxation and luxury. The doors surrounding the swimming pool open on three sides to enjoy the views of the gardens and countryside beyond.

Adjoining the open plan kitchen / breakfast / dining room is a wonderful conservatory/orangery to relax in after swimming and enjoy the winter sunshine and breathtaking views or utilise as a gym/exercise area. Access from here to the modern utility room with space for further storage and washing appliances and the downstairs cloakroom comprising a low level WC and pedestal handbasin.

From the entrance hallway, a useful cellar can be accessed for wine enthusiasts and further storage. A balustraded stairway climbs to the first floor landing highlighting the character and historical architecture of the property to access the first double bedroom with ensuite and the family luxury bathroom. The fully tiled en-suite shower room comprises a corner wash basin corner, low level WC, corner shower with glazed curved front and sides with chrome shower control system. All bathrooms in the house have been carefully refurbished during the current ownership, the family bathroom comprises a freestanding bath, modern walk-in shower enclosure, chrome shower control system, vanity unit with inset basin, low level WC and heated towel rail. Fantastic views can be enjoyed across the gardens and fields beyond.

A staircase continues to the 2nd floor landing with an external glazed door to access a flat roof which could be improved further to create a balcony area. There are two extra large double bedrooms, (one currently used as a dressing room) and an en-suite shower room. The main bedroom has the benefit of fitted wardrobes along one wall and fabulous views of the gardens and beyond. The en-suite shower room comprises another modern shower enclosure with chrome shower system, vanity unit with inset basin and chrome heated towel rail.

Accessing the 3rd floor accommodation via the landing from a further staircase leads to two double sized bedrooms, which both have stunning views of the South Downs. The house has recently undergone extensive refurbishment to insulate the walls of the house, also installing solar panelling for heating, ensuring that all rooms throughout the house are warm.
