Property description

This superb home is arguably the most stunning property to have ever come on the market in Woodingdean. An outstanding and wonderful architectural design, a property like this is an extremely rare find and something not to be missed. Approached by a long private drive and positioned on a large secluded plot the property will instantly have you in awe of its sheer size and presence. The entrance hall perfectly sets the tone, with fabulous double height ceiling and a well thought out skylight, allowing light to fill the area from the moment you step inside. The accommodation downstairs is perfect for those with a large family or looking at taking in an elderly relative, as the large double bedroom has a beautiful en-suite creating the ideal space for a visiting guest or family. A large lounge offers the perfect haven at the end of the day, with lovely views out to the garden and a delightful wood burning stove.

The kitchen/family room is something which must be seen to be believed, substantial in space and sleek and modern. Upstairs you’ll find four large double bedrooms and family bathroom. The main bedroom benefits from a luxurious en suite, wonderful walk-in wardrobe and stunning Juliette balconies allowing you to enjoy magnificent sea views. As you can tell this is certainly a property not likely to be available again for some time and we advise potential buyers to arrange a viewing as soon as possible.

Please refer to the footnote regarding the services and appliances.
