This fine example of Victorian architecture was sensitively converted by award-winning Reside Developments in 2012.

A unique property, it dates back to 1899 and was first used as a family residence.

Later, in 1953, the house was remodelled and became the highly regarded Arundale School.

Retaining a wealth of period features and offering stunning views across the Wildbrooks to the glorious South Downs, the property features, a large and elegant designer kitchen/dining room with integrated appliances and an array of energy efficient features, not usually found in a home of such character.

Double doors open onto a south facing decked seating area and landscaped rear garden.

Individually-sourced high quality materials have been used inside and out.

The cosy snug/family room has retained the original sash bay window and is a lovely space in which to relax of an evening.

All four bedrooms are doubles, the main bedroom is en-suite and there is plenty of built-in storage.

The current owners use one of the bedrooms as a living room, making the most of the view.

All amenities are within walking distance, including a range of independent and specialist shops, pubs, cafes, doctors and dentists.

There are two supermarkets in the village and a mainline railway station provides direct access to London and Gatwick.

The owner said: “As the show-home for the development, we’ve found the fixtures and fittings in our home to be of a very high standard. The specification and quality of the conversion is excellent and we’ve since added secondary glazing to the front, which has made this feel a really quiet, relaxing place to live.

“This is a wonderful house with a flexible layout. Having two parking spaces right outside our front door is really useful for when friends or family come to visit. The property also has a brick built outbuilding, which we currently use as a store room/gym but it would also make a great office for anyone who works from home.”

Price £475,000.
