Hugely versatile and beautifully filled with light, its excellently presented interior includes a spacious double aspect living/dining room with French doors to the patio and a magnificent feature fireplace. A modern Shaker-style kitchen is fully fitted with integrated appliances, and four notably sized bedrooms create ample flexibility to cater to your own needs and lifestyle.
Stretching out across the full depth of the house, a superb living/dining room sets the tone for what’s to come. The rich tones of its wood floor combine with elegant picture rails to give ample charm, and while a fabulous curved corner chimney breast is a fantastic focal point to the living area, modern French doors create a seamless connection with the gardens inviting you out onto the secluded south-facing patio. The generous proportions include a great dining area with tastefully chosen feature patterns and create an easy flowing feel by opening into an adjoining Shaker-style kitchen that is impressively appointed.
The period charm and character continues across the hallway where two highly versatile ground floor bedrooms have enviable panoramic vistas over the Downs. The commendable dimensions of the large principal bedroom easily accommodate a desk area within the wide window space, while the second bedroom with its picture perfect bow windows could easily be a dedicated home office if needed.
Upstairs, crisp white walls perfectly enhance a fantastic stream of natural light in two equally impressive bedrooms that include a magnificently sized double bedroom with eaves storage. Arranged in a refined white and sage green tile setting, the outstanding family bathroom has both a wood panelled bath and shower cubicle, and a stylish ground floor cloakroom completes the accommodation.
Steps lead up to the side entrance of this inviting two storey home past a hugely pretty garden with an established lawn and a brilliantly planted array of shrubs that add seasonal colour throughout the year.
The French doors of the living/dining room entice you out onto a secluded decked patio that’s a hugely tranquil spot for a morning coffee or al fresco meals. Landscaped south-facing tiers reach up before you giving you a choice of spots to relax in the sun beneath the dappled shade of tall trees, generating a heavenly retreat from the hubbub of the day.

What the owner says....
We’ve lived here for nearly 20 years and will be sorry to leave our lovely house and fantastic views of the Downs. After working from home for two years, I’ve really come to appreciate those views! The house has been a perfect family home, with plenty of room indoors for everyone to have their space, as well as an enormous garden for play, relaxation and growing things. The semi-open plan living room, dining room, kitchen and patio has been great for keeping an eye on the kids while cooking, as well as a wonderful space for entertaining. My two children have been very happy at the nearby play groups and schools, but now that they’ve grown up we no longer need them or the space. Patcham really has been the best of both worlds, with Stanmer Park and the Downs on our doorstep and a 15-minute drive or bus ride into town. Nearby Preston Park railway station on the London/Gatwick line also makes it dead easy to get to London or jump on a plane. We'll be sorry to leave all this great space and peace but the time has come for us to down-size and head back to the city.
