Understood to have origins dating from the mid 1800s, with later additions, Selmeston Croft has attractive colour washed lower elevations, with tile hung upper elevations under a pitched tile roof.
The property has recently been stylishly improved by the present owners with great flair and attention to detail. Internally the house provides well presented, bright and interesting accommodation arranged over two floors, with many of the principal rooms taking advantage of the spectacular southerly views over the surrounding countryside to the South Downs.
Features of note include a well-proportioned double aspect drawing room, which has an attractive fireplace with a large wood burning stove. From all three principal reception rooms glazed casement doors lead out onto a wide paved terrace.
Other features include extensive bespoke walnut book shelving in the study, some exposed timbers, good ceiling heights for a property of its age and some oak floors. A particular feature of the house is the spacious principal suite, which has a stylish recently installed bathroom with a stone bath, and there is an extensive range of built-in cupboards in the dressing room.
Selmeston Croft is approached from the end of a no-through lane via double wooden gates, which lead to a wide brick paved parking area, adjacent to which is the double garage and detached gym/studio annexe.
The annexe has a hot tub, steam room and shower.
Subject to the relevant planning permission being obtained, it is thought that the annexe could be converted to provide an alternative use. Beyond the annexe is a sheltered paved sitting area, the kitchen garden and the flood lit all-weather tennis court.
The gardens have been attractively landscaped over the years, and immediately to the south eastern side of the house is a wide York stone terrace, with steps leading up to a raised sitting area. Beyond the sitting area, the gardens are principally laid to lawn with a central ornamental pond, and are bordered in part by some well stocked flower beds and mature oak trees.
From the property and its gardens there are some spectacular uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside to the South Downs. About 1.1 acres.
