Down Park South is an imposing portion of a former Georgian country house which has been sympathetically modernised to provide an excellent level of bright, well proportioned and elegant accommodation over three floors. Unusually, for a property of its type, Down Park South, while being attached does not have any compromise on privacy or shared grounds and is accessed down a long private driveway. The accommodation offers much charm and character throughout with exceptionally high ceilings to the principle rooms. On the ground floor the property opens into a welcoming entrance hall and leads to a striking and very impressive dual aspect drawing room. This room has the charm and feel of a ballroom, with solid wood flooring and a wood burning stove. The room also leads directly into the orangery which is an original feature of the property and is both an interesting and stunning space. Also on this floor is the kitchen/dining room boasting an Aga and spacious walk in pantry, not to mention space for a very large kitchen table where all the family can gather together, making it the real hub of the home. It also benefits from a reasonable sized utility room. To the centre of the property is a wonderful reception room which the current owners use a family room, whilst also having space for a library and study area. The first floor is approached via a turned staircase leading to a spacious landing with two sets of double doors leading out to a terrace with lovely views of the gardens. The master bedroom is an impressive room, offering a dual aspect overlooking the garden and again offers wonderfully high ceilings. There are two further double bedrooms on the first floor, one of which has an en-suite shower room, in addition to this there is a main family bathroom on this floor. On the second floor is a further bedroom with a staircase leading to an attic room, currently used as a children’s play room/den.
The area enables easy access to Three Bridges train station servicing London Bridge and Victoria stations. Gatwick airport is approximately 6.5 miles, accessible via the M23 which also links to London. There are a number of notable schools locally including Worth, Ardingly College, Brambletye, Copthorne Prep and Cumnor House, aswell as Handcross Park which recieved an inspection report of outstanding in all areas. The village of Crawley Down is well appointed with excellent independent amenities such as a butcher, post office, pharmacy, Co-op supermarket, GP practice and dentist.
The property is approached via a long private driveway which provides parking for several vehicles and also leads to a double garage with attached log store. The gardens are delightful being predominantly laid to lawn with a terrace adjacent to the property with a glazed canopy over making for an ideal spot to sit out whatever the weather. The gardens are fenced for privacy and include a separate section of garden with a large family sized hot tub ideal for family gatherings and summer barbecues.
