DESCRIPTION 20 Highgrove is an outstanding detached family house built by Countryside Properties in the late 1980s and is situated at the end of this quiet cul-de-sac in the much-favoured southern part of the town. Coming to the market for the first time since it was originally built, the house is presented in very good order throughout and, although has clearly been extremely well maintained, would now benefit from a degree of updating and offers its new owner an exciting opportunity to put their own stamp on the property thereby creating a wonderful long term family home. FEATURES Points of particular note include: * The elegant double aspect sitting room is light and airy and enjoys wonderful outlooks over the gardens. There is an open fireplace with attractive wooden surround and marble hearth and French doors open onto the rear terrace and gardens beyond. * The triple aspect formal dining room is a very good size and has an attractive polished wood floor. French doors give access to the terrace and delightful rear garden. * The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted with a good range of wall and base units with drawers set beneath extensive work surfaces with an inset Neff gas hob and built-in electric fan oven and grill. A separate utility area has space and plumbing for a washing machine and under counter freezer. A stable door gives access to the side entrance. This whole area has enormous potential to re-model or extend subject to any necessary consents. * The study has pleasant garden views and is very well equipped with an excellent range of fitted office furniture including a corner desk, storage cupboards, deep drawers and extensive book shelving. * On the first floor the master bedroom has a separate dressing area with an extensive range of built-in wardrobes. A matching set of chest of drawers and two bedside cabinets are included in the sale. The en-suite bathroom has white sanitaryware and a separate shower cubicle. * The guest suite is another generous double with wall-to- wall fitted wardrobes and a well-appointed en-suite shower room. * There are two further double bedrooms and both are served by the well-fitted family bathroom. OUTSIDE The house is tucked away at the end of this quiet cul-de-sac and is approached via a long drive which leads to a wooden Sussex 5 bar gate. An extensive block paved driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles and leads to the substantial detached double garage with electric up and over door and light and power connected. An external staircase gives access to a very useful studio room above which would make an excellent home office or hobby room. It also has the advantage of its own separate shower room with WC. A side gate gives access to the extremely private rear garden which is an exceptional size for the town and a stunning feature of the property. Sweeping lawns are surrounded by banks of rhododendrons, camellia and clematis and many fine specimen trees including beech, hazel, whitebeam and a fine Blue Spruce. A wide paved terrace wraps around the house and enjoys a very sunny aspect which is perfect for al fresco dining. There is a delightful water feature to one side and a small, shallow brook runs through one part with two ornamental bridges leading to a shady children's play area and a woodland walk. A substantial garden shed with light and power connected houses the sit-on lawn mower and leaf mulcher which are included in the sale and an attractive summerhouse catches the late afternoon and evening sun and provides one of several delightful areas to sit and enjoy the many aspects of this superb garden. In all about one third of an acre.
