A beautiful family home in an unspoilt rural position in the South Downs
Yew Tree House is sited towards the end of a private lane within the South Downs National Park, with exceptional elevated views and a southerly aspect. The property has been sympathetically extended, refurbished and modernised and has planning consent to extend further. EPC rating C. Believed to have been constructed in the 1930s as a dower house for the neighbouring Upper Lodge, Yew Tree House is arranged perfectly to suit the needs of the modern family, with a wonderful through-flow of rooms to the ground floor, most of which are double aspect, allowing the house to be flooded with natural light throughout the day. Of particular note is the exceptional kitchen/breakfast/family room completed in 2014. A wonderfully open and light living space, the kitchen leads into an orangery which allows the house to make the best of its elevated position, providing exceptional views over the sun terraces, gardens and paddocks to the south. The bespoke kitchen by Neptune Kitchens benefits from beautiful marble flooring with underfloor heating. The main reception rooms are also exceptionally well considered with hardwood flooring throughout, and the drawing room having a beautiful open fire at its heart. Yew Tree House also benefits from current planning consent to add a further reception room to the ground floor with a master bedroom suite above. SDNP/12/02352/HOUS Outside is a stable block with a new yard, including three loose boxes and a tack room to the north side, while to the south of the courtyard is the triple bay barn garage with studio/home gym above, both by Ascot Timber Buildings. To the west of the property are the old orchard, children’s play area and gardens, a field shelter and two sheds, a naturally-fed trout pond and stream, and some woodland.
