Adding to the sense of space, the large modern conservatory provides a host of possibilities from a peaceful spot to relax with the weekend papers to an alternative dining room, and ensures that a maximum amount of natural daylight continues to flow into this Stanmer Village home.

Two double bedrooms offer ideal family and guest accommodation, both benefiting from plenty of storage within their newly fitted wardrobes.

This family sized home is set back from the quiet road behind a large well-kept lawn bordered by raised beds of established shrubs and flowers. The blue hues of Muscari add a vibrant splash of colour, while a statuesque palm tree provides an eye-catching reminder that the coast is within easy reach.
Raised timber beds lead you to the rear of the house where the elegant array of mature flowers, an expansive lawn and tasteful landscaping creates an instant wow factor that’s hard to ignore. Stepping out from the conservatory, a wide paved patio engenders an easy flowing extension of this wonderful village home, making it easy to step outside and entertain friends and family in the summer sun.
Offering a slice of country living and a classic English garden feel, this graceful east-facing outdoor space is bordered with the rich blooms of camelia, tulips, geraniums, cowslips and hebe to name but a few, while a bubbling stream flows into the populated fish pond that supplies a central focal point and a lovely place to relax on its decked patios.
