An individual 7000 ft.² eco house built in recent years to exacting standards by the present owner occupying a secluded 1 acre (approx.) plot on the town’s outskirts. The property includes every conceivable extra with no expense spared on both the external and internal finish to include state of the art electrical, green energy heating, security and audio systems, a lift, not to mention the landscaping and impressive gated entrance. The majority of the oak joinery throughout the house has been made by ‘Conquest’ with the central reception hall being the masterpiece with its grand staircase and galleried landing above by ‘Sussex Oak’. Most rooms have fitted cabinets, furniture and wardrobes and the master bedroom has a walk-in dressing room that should satisfy even the most ‘fashion conscious’ owner.
The ground floor accommodation is arranged around an impressive reception hall and includes two impressive living rooms with fireplaces, a dining room, gym/studio, a fully fitted media room/study and separate plant rooms for the electrical and solar hot water/heating systems. The West Wing is arranged as the kitchen/living area and comprises a beautifully made kitchen fitted by ‘Designers Choice’ in Hassocks with modern units, granite worktops and a full range of high end integrated appliances to include a 3 oven Aga, walk-in pantry and a utility room. The kitchen leads through to an octagonal shaped additional living area with vaulted ceiling and doors out to the south facing terrace and swimming pool.
The first floor accommodation has a galleried landing above the main reception hall and an additional lounge area which also has a gallery looking into the secondary hallway below and a tall arched south facing glazed panel overlooking the gardens. There are six bedrooms all with en-suite facilities and all have bespoke oakfitted furniture and wardrobes.
The Gardens and Grounds
Chart House has an impressive brick wall and railings along the front boundary and a pillared entrance with electric iron gates and video entry system. A long driveway with lighting leads down the eastern side of the plot to a circular parking area in front of the main entrance to the house with additional pillars leading through to a parking compound and the triple garage block. The gardens, like the house, were a complete blank canvas and have been beautifully laid out and now matured to provide almost complete privacy. The main gardens are located on the south side of the house with a large terrace including the heated swimming pool and lead onto the grounds which are mainly laid to lawn.
