A stunning contemporary home with dramatic design features, set in gardens of about a third of an acre and having far-reaching views over neighbouring farmland to the South Downs. Bought by the present owners some five years ago, Acorns has undergone a comprehensive programme of redesign, extension and refurbishment to create a stunning family home with superb rural views. The hub of the house is a sleek, contemporary kitchen/breakfast room with porcelain tiled floor and granite worksurfaces, which opens directly on to a dining room with dramatic partly glazed vaulted ceiling and full height picture windows. Beyond, this opens on to an impressive sitting room of over 30' in length with large picture windows and bi-folding doors making the most of fabulous views over neighbouring farmland to the South Downs. Four bedrooms include three suites. A principal bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room and well-appointed shower room. The second bedroom suite can also be used as an annexe having its own kitchen with independent access, as well as an en-suite shower room. Two further bedrooms include a further suite whilst the fourth bedroom/home office has its own dedicated shower room. The shower and bathrooms are all well-appointed, some with waterfall taps and low level decorative lighting. Electric underfloor heating has been installed throughout the entire living accommodation. Double remote controlled gates open on to the approach and parking areas to the south of the house. In addition to the integral garage and workshop there is also a detached barn-style car port providing additional covered parking and storage for a garden tractor/mower. The gardens have been designed for ease of maintenance and enjoy breath-taking views to the South Downs. Bi-folding doors from the sitting room open on to a terrace looking out over neighbouring farmland. Beyond the terrace, the garden is laid to lawn with a number of trees providing attractive focal points including silver birch, willow and cherry. The terrace is equipped with outside power points and decorative lighting has been installed around many of the trees and focal points of the garden. West Ashling village has an excellent local public house as well as a primary school and village hall. The nearby village of Funtington also has a local farm shop and public house, whilst there is an organic butchers at Adsdean. Chichester city centre offers an excellent range of shops, cafes and restaurants and the skyline is dominated by the 12th century cathedral. Chichester is well known for its internationally renowned Festival Theatre and Pallant House Gallery. The Goodwood Estate a little further afield hosts the annual Festival of Speed and the Revival meeting at its historic motor circuit and also has a full horse-racing calendar including Glorious Goodwood. Sailing is one of the predominant pastimes on the coast, with sailing clubs at Bosham, Itchenor and Dell Quay. The Blue Flag beaches at West Wittering can be found approximately 12 miles to the south and the surrounding countryside is an ideal place for country walks, horse riding and mountain biking.
