This detached residence sits within the original grounds of the Ancient Fig Gardens of Tarring. Thought to be largest ever fig orchard planted in Britain, the majority of the trees date back to 1745 and the property comes with a second garden populated with some of these historic trees.
Sitting back from a modern cul de sac behind the high bungaroosh walls of a considerable courtyard, the residence offers flexible family accommodation. Unfolding from a central hallway the ground floor includes a spacious lounge/dining room with a focal point fireplace and double aspect fully glazed doors to a wrap-around patio. A tasteful colour scheme complements the engineered wood floor and the generous dimensions provide a notable place for everyone to spend time together. A large country kitchen is full fitted with solid wood cabinets, integrated tower ovens and a gas hob. Benefiting from ample space for additional freestanding appliances has an adjoining utility room and further access to the garden.
The tasteful presentation continues in two excellently sized bedrooms and the ground floor is completed by a cloakroom/WC and a modern shower room with a glass framed waterfall shower. Upstairs a beautifully light and bright main bedroom sits across the landing from a charming bathroom with a heritage suite that includes a traditional roll top bath with claw feet.
The glazed doors of the lounge/dining room connect to a wonderful walled west-facing garden that adds a picture perfect backdrop. A paved patio extends around house providing an ideal opportunity for al fresco meals and whilst the high bungaroosh walls retain an immense degree of character, impeccably planted flowerbeds are fully stocked with perennial shrubs and feature trees that include a magnificent fig tree. A brick built shed provides handy external storage and the property also has a substantial private second garden with further established fig trees.
At the front of the house the shared gravel driveway provides off-road parking for several vehicles and the freehold title also includes a garage that sits adjoining a neighbouring property.
