This substantial modern detached country house has gardens and grounds of just under five acres and enjoys exquisite panoramic views of the South Downs.

Barcombe House has been built within the past five years and is unique in its styling. It was positioned on the plot to maximise the amazing views of the surrounding countryside.

The comprehensive accommodation, which totals 5,196sqft, provides plenty of adaptable space for a growing family.

Worthy of special mention is the property’s Eco House rating of 78, being almost at the top of the scale in efficiency terms. This is possible by means of ground-sourced heat pumps combined with excellent insulation. There is also under floor heating throughout providing total comfort whenever required.

Externally, there is a large south facing sun terrace, which is ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining.

The beautifully landscaped formal gardens to the rear, sweep gently towards a large lake, which attracts a variety of wild fowl and provides a most attractive scenic backdrop.

To the front of the property there are more landscaped areas along with extensive parking for several vehicles and turning space; this extends to the west of the house where there is a substantial garage complex, providing 2,623sqft with four bays plus additional workshop space.

The property also has the benefit of a remote controlled secure in and out gated access.

The ground floor accommodation includes an entrance hall, cloakroom, kitchen, lounge, family room, a 43ft reception room, large office and two large master bedrooms, each with a dressing rooms and en suite bathrooms. On the first floor there are two further large bedrooms, both with dressing rooms and bathrooms, and a viewing room from where the grounds and the landscape can be seen at their best.
