Property for sale Bremere Lane, Highleigh
Guide Price £1,250,000
A superbly appointed and handsome double fronted Sussex Farmhouse style modern detached house located in an exclusive private development set on a relatively wide plot backing on to farmland.
This substantial house of quality was built about 14 years ago by Berkley Homes and situated in an peaceful semi-rural location on the fringe of the desirable village of Highleigh which is located about 5 miles south of Chichester city and just over 3 miles from Chichester marina. The property offers particularly spacious accommodation which is immediately apparent when entering the house through the two tall doors which open in to the impressive reception hall with a staircase leading up to a spacious galleried landing. The first and ground floor accommodation is proportionally well balanced with four receptions rooms leading from the reception hall. A stunning feature of the property and 'hub of the house' is the large kitchen breakfast room with a tasteful comprehensive range of wall and base units and quality integrated appliances. The landing leads to five bedrooms all of which have built in wardrobes and four of which are double bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms each have en-suite bathrooms. All living rooms and bedrooms have an excellent degree of natural light and the double aspect drawing room, sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room overlook the rear south facing garden. The galleried landing has a loft hatch with pull down ladder leading to an enormous loft area which may have further potential. There is a great feeling of space and welcoming atmosphere and the accommodation is versatile and ideal for entertaining.
Gardens and Grounds
The property is approached over a driveway which is laid to gravel providing parking space for at least five vehicles leading to a large detached double garage. The front garden is enclosed with post and rail fencing and the drive is flanked with a neat lawn and shrubs to one side. There are separate side entrances leading to the rear garden on both sides of the house and to the right of the house there is a useful area of lawn tucked away to the left of the garage.
The delightful south facing rear garden is an attractive feature of the property with an easy to maintain neatly kept level lawn. The paved patio extends the full width of the house and is accessed from the various rooms in the house including the sitting room which leads out onto the recessed 'Sun trap' patio area with a southerly aspect.
The property is situated in the heart of the hamlet of Highleigh which is situated towards the centre of the Manhood peninsular, about five miles south of Chichester city centre and a short distance from both Chichester Marina and Birdham Pool. Much of the surrounding area is populated by rare wildlife and designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. East Wittering is about 3 miles distant and has an excellent variety of shops and restaurants including a health centre, dentist and library
