An older style DETACHED and well presented 4 BEDROOM, 2 BATH/SHOWER ROOM, HOUSE OF CHARACTER with PRIVATE PARKING, walking distance of PULBOROUGH MAINLINE STATION having MAGNIFICENT VIEWS over Pulborough Brooks and beyond to the South Downs.
The property, a stunning example of an Arts and Crafts style house, built in post-war 1949 but exuding a feel of the 1920s, has retained many of its original features thus preserving its unique character and charm. A step leads up to the front entrance door opening into a small but splendid LOBBY displaying solid oak double-opening doors and a patterned Quarry tiled floor into a generous RECEPTION HALL with solid herringbone woodblock flooring continuing into the separate sitting and dining room. The triple aspect SITTING ROOM with its imposing and stylish brick open fireplace, is fitted with various elegant oak/glass fronted cupboards along with French style doors opening on to the rear patio, coupled with a stunning outlook to the front. To the opposing elevation, is the DINING ROOM, double in aspect and featuring a cast iron Victorian styled fireplace with a natural stone hearth and a handy serving hatch through to the kitchen. A generous sized cloakroom, with a few steps down to its patterned quarry tiled floor, is also located off the hall and showcases a beautiful stained-glass window. A good size KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM laid with laminate slate-style flooring continuing through to the family room immediately off, creating an ideal hub for modern living, is fitted with solid pine country-style units with tiled worktops and an inset enamelled sink and includes a large 4 oven Aga. The FAMILY ROOM entered through a connecting doorway, is triple aspect with a pleasant view over the secluded rear garden. A turned OAK STAIRCASE, distinctive to 1920s styling, and boasting an imposing double-height window to the half-landing, rises to the FIRST FLOOR landing where there are FOUR DOUBLE BEDROOMS, the two principal being full of character with eaves’ detailing, and both having the benefit of fitted wardrobe cupboards, whilst one has the addition and convenience of a pedestal wash-hand basin. A handy double sized loft hatch is also located to the landing offering potential for further accommodation (STPP), whilst to complete the first floor is a BATHROOM as well as a separate SHOWER ROOM, both with Victorian-styled white suites.
To the outside, the property is approached via a long and gradually ascending tarmacadam driveway, initially shared then branching off to its own private section, accommodating several vehicles and includes a turning circle. A long and pretty front garden is beautifully arranged, with a neat lawned area bordered by mature shrubs, trees and evergreen hedging, with a feature sunken pond to its upper level having a paved surround and a further seating area positioned above in order to appreciate and enjoy the breathtaking views to the south. A gravelled pathway rises and continues to the garden’s westerly aspect with rail and post fencing alongside, leading to the rear garden made up of two sections. The lower, which is lawned and level, complete with a wooden shed and a large feature shrubbery, also houses a patio area outside the French doors to the sitting room with a pathway extending to the property’s perimeter. The upper level is a steep bank, located to the rear, lending itself to a further seating area with the most far-reaching views on offer, and accessed by a well designed meandering pathway gradually climbing to the summit.
