Hurst Wickham Rise provides beautifully proportioned and light accommodation over three floors with a Georgian influence and imposing symmetrical brick elevations.
From the entrance drive, double oak doors lead through into the entrance vestibule; beyond which is the splendid reception hall with a galleried landing. The ground floor is ideally arranged for large scale formal entertaining, and includes an elegant drawing room with open fireplace and marble surround, and a wide archway leading to the dining room. At the heart of the home is the magnificent kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of cream units, polished granite work surfaces, integrated appliances, 3-oven Aga and two electric ovens; with access to the garden via bi-folding doors and to the family room. A spacious playroom, bedroom/study and useful laundry room complete the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor are the master and guest bedrooms (both with en suite bathrooms, dressing rooms and balconies), three further bedrooms (1 en suite and 2 with dressing rooms), a family bathroom and 2 additional balconies from which there are wonderful views over the property’s gardens to the South Downs.
The second floor is accessed by two staircases and incorporates a bedroom, dressing room, shower room and large gym area. Other features of note include underfloor heating, oak and limestone floors, oak panelled doors and a Crestron home management system which controls the lighting mode, heating, intercom and home entertainment system.
In addition to the main house is a detached two-bedroom cottage arranged over 2 floors.
The property is approached via electric wooden entrance gates to the private entrance drive, which is bordered by a lawn, small kitchen garden and a number of fruit trees. The drive continues to the front of the main house and a semi-circular parking area.
To the south west of the house is a decked terrace with lighting and seamlessly connects the house with the gardens; providing the perfect space for outside entertaining. From the terrace, steps lead down to the principal lawn; bordered by clipped hedges and mature rhododendrons. To the far end of the lawn an archway leads to a further area of garden bordered by numerous mature trees and intersected by a number of mown paths. To the north west of the formal gardens, and screened by hedging, is the championship-sized all weather tennis court.
