Originally built in 1939, Sun House has been thoughtfully extended and improved over the years to create an impressive family home with well-proportioned rooms and a tasteful contemporary décor scheme throughout. The home is beautifully appointed with a versatile arrangement and a range of modern conveniences such as underfloor heating, generous open plan living space, and a choice of reception areas ideal for both entertaining and the demands of busy family life. Highlights include the contemporary open plan kitchen which serves as the heart of the family home complete with a wealth of storage and appealing shaker-style units and the wonderful mature gardens of 1.9 acres with delightful south-facing views towards Ashdown Forest and the South Downs. There is also an integral self-contained annexe with two bedrooms which has great potential for multi-generational living or as income if requried. The substantial accommodation is entered via a welcoming entrance hall with double height ceilings, cloakroom and w.c leading through to a bright double aspect 26ft sitting room with French doors out to the rear patio, family room, and open plan dining room and kitchen complete with complementary granite worktops and handy adjacent utility room. The self-contained annexe has its own private entrance from the front of the house and comprises a sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Occupying the first floor is the principal bedroom benefiting from an en suite bathroom with a freestanding bathtub and glass-fronted shower and large south-facing balcony which spans the rear of the home and is a particular highlight with delightful far-reaching views across the gardens and towards the South Downs. There are four further good-sized bedrooms, plus a contemporary family bathroom.


The property occupies an elevated plot and is approached over a sweeping gravel driveway providing off-street parking for a number of vehicles with access to a detached double garage. Externally the home is set within stunning gardens of approximately 1.9 acres comprising a large, raised patio for al fresco dining in the summer months with far-reaching views towards Ashdown Forest and the South Downs. There is a large level lawn with well-stocked and varied borders, flanked with a variety of established fruit trees, shrubs and bedding plants with a small orchard to the rear.
