DESCRIPTION: A wonderful and rare opportunity to purchase a substantial sized detached six double bedroomed luxury chalet bungalow with an outdoor heated swimming pool and set within 5 acres of its own beautifully maintained gardens and grounds, as well as being totally secluded, set off a quiet country lane and enjoying wonderful views.
The property's boundary is child and dog secure with a further internal fenced safe play area. The five acres are predominantly laid to well-maintained grass lawns to a park style design, including specimen silver birch trees amongst other attractive and colourful varieties. In addition, there is the option to have the far grass areas turned into a horse paddock where there are buildings suitable for conversion into stables subject to planning. Especially as the extensive gravel driveway beyond the secure electric gated entrance has ample areas to park a horse box and trailer.
With a detached heritage style garage complex and adjoining workshop with parking in front, the property is easily able to cater for numerous vehicles for both residents or guests during family functions.
The outdoor pool area has the benefit of an entertainment bar, a pool room and a further second outdoor pool cloakroom.
Although the property already has two luxury family bathrooms/ shower rooms, as well as the outdoor pool room / shower rooms, the property has both the size and fittings to locations to allow for possibly every bedroom to have an ensuite subject to planning.
Throughout the entire exquisitely maintained residence, is an abundance of natural light with the numerous large skylights and large double-glazed windows and doors which encapsulate the panoramic views beyond the pool and sun terraces.
SITUATION: Set within its own private land of approximately 5 acres and enjoying incredible seclusion, as well as being set off a quiet country lane, this property is within only a short drive of Polegate mainline strain station, making it a perfect country residence for a London commuter to own. The coast of Pevensy Bay is minutes away and from the first-floor windows the property commands far reaching rural views to the South Downs.
There are bridleways, country footpaths and a network of cycle routes to be enjoyed, depending upon one's chosen preference of leisure pursuit. Furthermore, there are a number of good golf courses in addition to sailing at Eastbourne.
