A superbly presented and substantial family home enjoying views of farmland, in this popular and picturesque West Sussex village. The property has been extensively improved and re-modelled by the current owners and now offers extensive practical yet versatile accommodation arranged over two floors. Approached at the front via a sweeping gravel driveway leading to open barn garaging for two cars. A covered porch gives access to the front door opening into a central hallway with doors to all rooms and stairs to the first floor. The triple aspect sitting room is further complemented with an impressive Inglenook fireplace with beehive hood, carved oak mantel, exposed wall and ceiling timbers. In addition there is a separate family room with oak flooring and a separate study with bespoke fitted units. The heart of the home is the stunning kitchen family room with a second wood burning stove. This stunning room needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated. The kitchen has been refitted with a range of units under an expanse of riven slate worktops and integrated appliances. In addition there is space for an electric Aga and further appliances in a separate adjacent utility room. In recent years the kitchen has been extended at the rear to create a large vaulted dining/family room with doors leading to the garden. The first floor is of equal merit providing three double bedrooms an en-suite to the master bedroom and a refitted family bathroom. The current owners have converted the forth bedroom into a dressing room but could easily be converted back. There is a large boarded loft space for additional storage. Agents note: the old double garage has been converted into a snooker room, housing a full sized table; this space also accommodates a separate kitchen area and a separate shower room. Again subject to planning could be turned into a self contained annexe or home office.
