Danswood is a substantial house dating from 1937 and was built by the renowned Lion’s Green Building Company and subsequently sympathetically and stylishly enlarged by the current owners.
The house provides light and well-arranged accommodation with a wealth of character detail including leaded-light windows, oak doors, some exposed timbers and good ceiling heights. The magnificent 24-foot partly vaulted double-height drawing room has a central feature fireplace with a double-sided wood burning stove, bi-folding doors to the terrace and remote controlled mood lighting. Double doors lead through from the drawing room to the well-proportioned sitting room, which again has bi-folding doors and an open fireplace. In addition there is a large wooden panelled double aspect dining room and the kitchen is fitted with a range of cream fronted units with Corian work tops an includes a Falcon two-oven range. A generous utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor the principal suite comprises a large bedroom, dressing room and shower room. In addition on the first floor there are two further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a large mezzanine bedroom/study which is approached via a separate spiral staircase. The second floor provides an attic bedroom and a useful walk-in store. From the bedrooms there are superb far reaching views over the treetops with the South Downs in the distance.
Danswood is approached via an impressive sweeping entrance drive which winds up through the grounds to the house where there is a wide parking area. To one side is a substantial L-shaped Heritage garage comprising two open bays and one enclosed bay with an adjacent garden tractor store/workshop area. Attached to one side of this building is a log store. The principal gardens lie on the southern side of the house and immediately adjacent to the house is a wide paved terrace which is ideal for al fresco dining and affords some lovely views.
From the terrace steps lead down to the heated swimming pool which is set within a wide paved terrace. The garden is laid to sweeping expanses of lawn bordered by various well-stocked and colourful beds and includes some magnificent trees including a walnut, acer, copper beech, a tulip tree, blue cedars and oaks. Situated towards the start of the entrance drive is a further garage. The garden and grounds surround the house are a particular feature providing a beautiful and secluded setting for the house. In all about 1.8 acres.
