8 Bedroom Detached House

Ref: 14300_28506617
Hyde House is an exquisite, elegant and substantial, 8 bedroom detached property of 5190 sq ft (TBV) set in just over half an acre and situated in an idyllic conservation area in the village of Selmeston. Located just outside the historic village of Alfriston at the heart of the Cuckmere Valley, Selmeston is a stunning, enviable rural setting within the South Downs National Park where properties rarely become available. Built Circa 1984 this property has been extensively and meticulously refurbished and extended by the existing owners to a high standard. Whilst some rooms remain to be finalised in terms of decoration much of this property has been renovated and beautifully presented in the style of a quintessential English country home. The extensive accommodation comprises; 3 reception rooms and 8 bedrooms, 5 of which enjoy luxury en-suite bathrooms with double ended free standing roll top baths. The 25ft kitchen/day room is a stunning double aspect room which opens onto the garden and completing the ground floor accommodation is an impressive reception hallway, utility room, boot room and cloakroom. 4 bedrooms each with en-suite facilities are located to the first floor. The master bedroom suite enjoys French doors that open to a Juliette balcony. To the second floor are 4 bedrooms, 1 of which enjoys an en-suite bathroom and a separate family bathroom. Internally a wonderful palette of neutral colours works alongside ornate wallpaper designs and an abundance of features such as sash windows, bespoke hand-crafted wood panelled walls, dado rails, high skirting boards, panelled doors and storage solutions. In our opinion the quality of this renovation is evident in every detail. Modern conveniences are also present in abundance including but not limited to; intelligent lighting control, mains operated smoke detection system throughout and an air sourced heat unit to the kitchen/day room. The kitchen/day room boasts two built in electric ovens and two built in microwaves, an integrated electric fryer and charcoal griddle - both under a stainless steel extractor. A dishwasher point is located under the central island in which there's also a small vegetable preparation sink. A double butler's sink is set into a solid oak worktops and oak flooring gives this space a warm country style ambiance. Externally the addition of an impressive entrance porch majestically defined by two stone columns sets precedent for the regal quality bestowed on this home by the current owners. Landscaped gardens planted with an array of shrubs and trees envelop the property and are set alongside a patio that wraps around the house. Raised vegetable beds/flower borders to the south side outside the kitchen have been constructed with sandstone coping stones. To the west, there's a central circular lawn with box hedging planted to delineate flower borders. The rear garden is fenced with chestnut posts and stock fencing and planted with laurel hedging. A pair of antique gates open to a gravel parking area with space for 6 cars and the garage. Agents notes; We have been advised that this property has been re-wired, re-plumbed and re-plastered.
