Outstanding setting in seven acres

Sitting in seven acres on the edge of the village of East Grimstead, The Oaks enjoys long views across its own land towards Bentley Woods and the surrounding downland.

Built in 2000 The Oaks was designed in a contemporary barn style, to blend with its environment. There is access via an adjoining bridleway to open countryside and the natural and unspoilt surroundings are a haven for wildlife, flora and fauna, including the lake within the grounds, which has an island connected by a footbridge.

The property not only offers spacious and versatile accommodation but also has extensive outbuildings including a modern three bay barn with stables, tack room and storage, two field shelters and a detached double garage with a store room above.

Although the accommodation is laid out primarily over the ground floor, there are three rooms on the first floor, currently arranged as an open plan sitting room with a double bedroom on each side. There is also planning consent to raise the ridge height and create more substantial rooms on this level.

The front door opens into a fine, square reception hall and the drawing room and superb kitchen/breakfast room both have French doors opening into a magnificent conservatory on the southern side, which in turn opens to the garden. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with a range of cream units, a large range cooker and there is plenty of space in the middle for a farmhouse dining table, creating an intimate space for relaxed family mealtimes.

Two double bedrooms, a large family bathroom and two cloakrooms are accessed from an inner hallway.

A further mainly glazed walkway at right angles to the main building leads off to the family room, games room, study and utility room, and twin pairs of doors open to the front terrace.
