Home with superb views
SITUATED in Highover Park, with stunning views towards the Old Town and Gore Hill, this Grade II listed residence was built in the 1930s by the renowned architects Amyas Connell and Basil Ward.
This, along with several neighbouring properties, was one of the first modernist houses to have been built in England. Over more recent years the property has been sympathetically refurbished and restored together with the addition of a fabulous extension to the rear of the house, which has created further light and airy living space.
The internal accommodation comprises a formal, dual aspect reception room to the front, with high ceilings and large Crittal windows, giving an airy and spacious feel.
A step to one side leads up to a family room and an adjoining study with fitted furniture. Leading directly from the entrance hall, a stylish glass corridor leads to the newly constructed, open-plan area incorporating a bespoke kitchen, dining area and TV room.
To one side a lavish bedroom suite, with a dressing room and en-suite bathroom, provides direct access out onto a charming decked terrace. Situated on the first floor are four individual bedrooms that enjoy delightful views of the gardens.All are serviced by a well appointed bathroom suite.
Further external access is provided by a second staircase that rises to a large balcony/terrace, affording spectacular views and ideal for entertaining during the summer months.
Driveway parking is provided to the front together with a garage that joins the house.The beautifully landscaped gardens feature large expanses of lawns to the front and rear together with an attractive variety of well stocked shrubs, topiary and specimen plants.There are also two large terraces; one of which can be accessed from the kitchen area, set upon part timber decking and Indian sandstone, enjoying a high degree of privacy and natural sunlight.The second terrace is situated at the top of the garden and, like the roof terrace, enjoys superb views towards Gore Hill and the countryside beyond. Towards the rear of the plot is a large timber framed outhouse that offers additional storage and potential living space.The plot as a whole enjoys a high degree of seclusion, enclosed by mature trees and hedges.
