A fully restored and refurbished, principal portion of the Grade II listed stately home originally commissioned for the Bonham Carter family during the nineteenth century. This imposing residence with Gothic influences is positioned on a hillside amid the South Downs and is located within the Adhurst St Mary estate which presents an incredibly rare opportunity to own a property of historical significance in a beautiful and peaceful setting.
The substantial internal accommodation is arranged over three floors and offers over 7600sqft of living space which is complemented by stunning grounds circa 2.75 acres. As you walk from the courtyard though the impressive double front doors into the stone tiled vestibule, the sense of grandeur and space is immediately apparent, with high ceilings and ornate character oozing Victorian charm. The wood panelled entrance hall leads through into the games room and an elegant, turning staircase accesses the upper floors. The games room accesses the wonderful, dual aspect drawing room complete with a marble fireplace. Double doors take you into the kitchen which is a modern, functional space with a generous breakfast bar and a number of integrated appliances. A further set of double doors leads through into the former library which is now an excellent size family / dining room.
The first floor offers four, well-appointed bedroom suites with glorious views over the surrounding countryside. On the second floor, there are four further bedroom suites together with a laundry, utility room and a home gym which completes the internal accommodation. Further benefits include a commercial grade pressurised water and heating system which guarantees the constant supply of hot water to all the bathrooms.
Externally, the property is approached via a sweeping driveway cutting through park like grounds which accesses the parking courtyard. There is approximately 2.75 acres which is a mixture of formal lawns and woodland creating a wonderful overall package.
