24 Shirleys is a beautifully appointed and reimagined contemporary family home, built to an exacting standard by the current owners, with great attention to detail. The property is ideally suited to modern family life and has an extraordinary sense of space and light, with extensive glazing providing a seamless connection between the inside and outside spaces. The house and infrastructure have been designed with energy efficiency and modern convenience in mind. There is underfloor heating throughout the kitchen/dining area in addition to radiators on both floors all of which are Gas powered. The glazing is Reynaers Aluminium with High UV protection, CAT 6 wiring throughout, Sonos sound and Lorex CCTV systems. The moment you walk into the entrance hall you are immediately drawn through the house to the large full height windows and the beautiful garden beyond. The large contemporary kitchen/breakfast/sitting room is the heart of the home, offering exceptional space for family life and entertaining. The kitchen is fitted with a stunning range of units, and integrated appliances, including 3 AEG wall mounted ovens, a beautiful, aged copper preparation island and beautiful Corian worktops. Running the entire length of the large kitchen is full height glazing, with sliding doors opening out onto the terrace and garden beyond. There is a wonderful fully digital cinema but all cinema equipment is available under separate negotiation. Off the entrance hall are a study and office on either side, and the office could be used as a fifth bedroom as it has an ensuite shower room. A downstairs cloakroom and a utility room complete the downstairs accommodation. A real feature of the property and designed with great flare is the floating oak and glass staircase which has been sympathetically created to allow light to filter throughout the house and allows views of the garden beyond. The well-arranged ground floor accommodation is complemented on the first floor by a large principal suite, comprising bedroom, shower room and dressing area and wardrobes. In addition, there are three further spacious bedrooms one with ensuite shower room and a large and beautifully appointed family bathroom.

To the rear of the house is a lovely, landscaped garden, mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and specimen trees. The house to the front has a more classic look of black and cream with pitched elevations and to the rear the house has been designed in a much more contemporary style with stunning burnt larch cladding and a large terrace which runs along the entire length of the house, perfect for outdoor entertaining and alfresco dining. Beyond the terrace and surrounding the property are the stunning views of the glorious Sussex countryside and the South Downs.
