Moundsmere is a handsome gabled country house with half tile hung elevations under a tiled roof and approached via a private drive leading to wrought iron electric gates with an intercom entry system. The property is set behind high walling, with raised planted boarders, creating a high degree of privacy. The broad gravel drive continues through the gates, passing a wide expanse of lawn, trees and shrubs, to a turning circle in front of the property.
Moundsmere is ideally equipped for entertaining, both indoor and out, and benefits from spectacular, unspoilt rural views to Chanctonbury Ring and Devils Dyke. Features of particular note include the impressive reception hall, with a sweeping central oak staircase to the large galleried landing above, an attractive orangery, reclaimed Burmese teak flooring, decorative cornicing and ceiling roses. At the heart of the home is the magnificent kitchen/breakfast room which opens to the conservatory. Leading from the utility room is a rear lobby which provides access to the large games room with a bedroom and en-suite shower room above.
The first floor comprises two matching bedroom suites each with a dressing area and a luxurious en-suite bathroom. The two further bedrooms both have en-suite shower rooms. From the galleried landing doors lead out to a semi-circular roof terrace, providing an ideal position to enjoy the far-reaching views. On the second floor there is a further bedroom with an ensuite shower room.
