The Pump House project presents a unique opportunity to live in over five acres (2.023 hectares) of countryside situated on the edge of the South Downs National Park, a mere stone’s throw from the south coast.
The site is oriented to the south and offers spectacular views over the garden towards the sea.
Planning permission is in place for a stunning 580m2 / 6240 sq. ft., 5 – bedroom house, nestled amongst mature trees. The seller’s vision for the presentation of the property is a stunning ’forever home’ with a layout that reflects this both inside and out. A four-storey property with 3 bathrooms; spacious open plan living/kitchen and dining floor; magnificent master suite and the option of utilising the lower ground as a recreational and spa level with cinema.
There is an adjacent, three open bay garage with two storage levels. The storage space has been constructed by the vendor in a format that lends itself to possible further development in the future, subject to the necessary consents
A second out building is located on the approach to the main gardens and may also lend itself to development in the future, possibly to office space or guest accommodation (subject to the necessary consents).
This will be a truly exquisite family home.
SELLER’S AND ARCHITECT'S VISION IN MORE DETAIL
Approached via a scenic country road leading from the coastal town of Shoreham, the plot is signposted at its entrance and accessed via an electric gate.
Driving down through the fields, the Pump House is nestled amongst a stand of mature trees surrounded by a lush green manicured garden and acres of attractive land, imparting privacy, serenity and a natural beauty.
With 6240 sq. ft. of living space this spectacular home will lend itself perfectly to family life and entertaining. The grand scale of the interiors, expansive footprint and abundance of natural light throughout combined with contemporary fixtures, high spec finishes and impressive windows, should produce an exquisite dream home.
THE BASEMENT – Accessed by stairs from the ground floor hallway, the current plans show the lower ground opening out into a dazzling entertainment, recreational and wellbeing level including an impressive indoor swimming pool, fully equipped gym, games room, bar and chill out zone with a six-seater cinema at the southernmost extension of the room. To throw light into the lower space current plans show inspired use of impressive large-scale glass panels and a light-well created by the descending staircase. A glass panel set into the floor of the hallway above has also been suggested.
GROUND FLOOR – A porch and double loggias would usefully flank the front and sides of the property. The entrance doors would open into a gracefully proportioned hall with central staircase down to the basement and a mid-point, statement glass floor looking down over the swimming pool below.
The plans suggest a spacious utility room and cloakroom with WC near to the entrance with the remainder of this floor housing a generous family bathroom with both a bath and walk in shower unit plus 4 double bedrooms, one with an en suite. This property lends itself perfectly to inverted living with respect to the bedrooms occupying the ground floor level and the living areas occupying the whole of the first floor in order to make the most of the outstanding coastal and downland views and the spectacular sunrises and sunsets. It is suggested that the 4 well –proportioned double bedrooms be positioned to overlook the luxuriant gardens. The largest of the four rooms designed to benefit from a quality walk-in dressing area and en suite shower room. All bedrooms have been designed to enjoy sizeable built-in storage. The current design suggests a second glass floor panel on an extended patio at the rear of the property showcasing and flooding more light into the lower ground space.
FIRST FLOOR – To really add the Wow factor to the property it is suggested that the living areas be situated on the first floor enabling enjoyment of the majestic vista beyond.
The expansive, open-plan living room, dining room and kitchen would be accessed via a central staircase and laid out in a practical format with the living area appointed an east facing position making the most of the sea views, the chef’s kitchen enjoying a west facing aspect and afternoon sun and the dining room positioned at the head of the room between the two where double doors open out onto a balcony for evening drinks or al fresco dining. The plans for the practical design-led kitchen currently include an island and butler’s pantry. This floor would constitute the heart of this home and is designed to be an ideal social space for both family and friends to come together. To complete this level there is space for a good-sized, self-contained office.
THE LOFT – The top floor of the property is designed to be a masterpiece in luxury, enjoying panoramic views from the windows and external balcony. Accessed via a large staircase into a galleried space, the master suite would occupy a sublime position. A walk-in dressing room would offer a touch of pure luxe and a master-suite scale bathroom with freestanding bath overlooking the fields, double sinks and a large walk-in shower unit would complete the sophisticated layout. To enhance this gorgeous space a seating area with doors onto a rear balcony would be the ideal spot for lazy breakfasts.
The Pump House is designed for the ultimate family lifestyle, perfect as it has been planned or adapted to your own inspired imaginative style by alterations in its interiors and finishing touches. The design and setting all assure an effortless and relaxed lifestyle for family and friends. Comfort and luxury combine to make this project an ideal lifestyle choice.
The Pump House gardens are extensive and ideal for children. For keen gardeners there is amazing potential for floral landscaping. For those who like to relax and sit in the sunshine the grounds offer endless spots for quiet relaxation.
The Pump House is located in a fabulously rural area of natural beauty surrounded by picturesque countryside with ocean views, yet a stone’s throw from the nearby town of Shoreham-by-sea, the south coast and the City of Brighton and Hove with all the cultural and social life that offers. There are outstanding Ofsted recommended schools in the area in addition to high profile Independent schools in including Lancing College and Shoreham College with Brighton College being a short drive away. Shoreham, Portslade and Brighton and Hove mainline stations are nearby with excellent links to London. The A27 and A23 are very easily accessible. Local walks are stunning and here is the attraction of the National Park literally on the doorstep.
