Easy access is provided to the A23 with Gatwick Airport being around twenty minutes by car and the south coast and entertainment centre of Brighton around eight miles distant.

Description
This traditionally styled and attractive house stands in a peaceful cul-de-sac of detached homes offset by wide grass verges and good size front gardens. Over the years the property has been significantly altered and extended to provide quite exceptional ground floor accommodation of an open plan design together with a self-contained studio room. The front elevation is a traditional mix of tile hanging and brick with leaded light double glazed windows together with a substantial canopy entrance porch supported by oak timbers. To the rear of the house is a good size and private garden stocked with an incredible variety of plants providing all year round colour.

Accommodation
A panelled hardwood front door within the porch leads into the reception hall where good coats and other storage is provided along with a well fitted cloakroom. A glazed door leads into the well-proportioned Sitting Room with decorative bow window and recess housing the log burner. At the far end, folding, part glazed doors open up into the Dining Room where sliding patio doors take you on through to the garden. In the midst of the house, accessed from both the Hall and Dining Room and forming a focal point with an aspect across the rear garden is the quite splendid Kitchen with its massive central island unit, extensive hardwood work surfaces with storage both over and under and spaces for all appliances. From the hall a door leads into the larger than average garage and on through to the Studio which opens out into the garden and provides an ideal space for those who work from home. The easy rising staircase leads up to the galleried landing on the first floor with further storage and airing cupboards and exceptionally well fitted bathroom providing bath with separate shower over, wash basin, w.c. and dimmable down lighters. All the four bedrooms are bright and airy with an outlook over the gardens and considered ideal for a family.

The driveway to the front provides ample parking for a number of vehicles and is offset to one side by a neat lawn with colourful shrub beds and ornamental tree. The rear garden is a particular feature having been carefully nurtured and created by the present owners who have provided a secluded area for relaxing with a decked, climbing shrub and trellis enclosed seating area with central lawn surrounded by mature and well established specimen shrubs of many different varieties. At the far end is a timber chalet with a fitted spa tub to provide a peaceful relaxation area. Tucked into one corner is a garden store together with log store along one wall.
