Chilverbridge House is a substantial home which has been extensively refurbished over recent years to provide a home of outstanding comfort and set within magical gardens and grounds, with splendid southerly views to the South Downs. This wonderful period family home has three fine reception rooms of great character, the panelled drawing room has an inglenook fireplace and built in cupboards, the large entrance hall/sitting room has a further inglenook fireplace with wood burner and the generous formal dining room also has an open fireplace. A study, cloakroom, boot room and bathroom complete the ground floor. The kitchen/breakfast room has a dual aspect and is fitted with matching base units and ample work surfaces, there is also a separate utility room. From the kitchen, steps lead down to a spacious cellar which has been extensively shelved to provide a wine cellar and storage.
On the first floor there is a galleried landing, four double bedrooms, the principal suite enjoys the stunning southerly views and there is a squared opening leading to a palacious en-suite bathroom and there is a door to a separate dressing room. The guest suite also has a walk in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom, two further bedrooms on this floor and a family bathroom. There are stairs rising from the landing to the fifth bedroom with its own en-suite shower room.
Set to one side of the house and fronting the entrance courtyard area are a range of detached brick and flint buildings which are arranged as four further bedroom suites which have been beautifully designed and fitted, each with en-suite bath or shower rooms and have access to either a private balcony or courtyard garden. This secondary accommodation provides excellent flexibility, suitable for extended family, elderly relatives or could be utilised to provide source of income (subject to any necessary consents that may be required). A central ’long barn’ situated between the bedroom suites has a beamed and vaulted ceiling and is fully glazed to one wall providing a gym/games room.
A detached brick and tiled barn has been converted into a home office with sliding glazed doors, vaulted ceiling, built in cupboards and display cabinets and has air source heating. Lying to one side of the gardens is a three bay open fronted barn with a store room to one side and a large room above.
There is a traditional greenhouse and all weather tennis court.
Set within brick and flint walls is the swimming pool with a flagstone surround, beyond which are deep herbaceous borders. A changing room with shower, together with a plant room is nearby and there are a number of additional stores created from the former farm buildings.
There is a long gravel driveway, leading from a quiet lane, with entrance gates opening onto an enclosed courtyard with access to both the main house and the guest accommodation. The drive continues past a pond to a parking area. Both formal and informal areas of garden have been created, separated by high brick and stone walls.
Adjoining the southern elevation of the house is a stone terrace with formal lawns beyond, inset with a central water feature and a ha-ha which separates the garden from a young orchard beyond.
To the south of the gardens there is an area of pasture with stunning countryside views. In all, the gardens and grounds extend to about 5.4 acres.
