Buckswood Grange is a Grade II Listed grand Victorian mansion set in park-like grounds, developed in 2003 to include prestigious apartments as part of a private gated development, ideally situated close to an extensive range of local services and amenities.
This particular apartment is on the first floor and therefore enjoys a delightful southerly aspect with glimpses of the South Downs in the distance.
Initially, you are taken in by the stunning period features to the communal entrance, typical of its age including high ceilings, balustrade staircase and stone fireplace with carved wooden surround. The first floor landing leads you to your private entrance with wood panel door to the long entrance hall with cornice ceiling, built-in airing cupboard, dado and hatch to loft space. The sitting room has an attractive stone fireplace with granite hearth along with a cornice ceiling. The open-plan kitchen has a good range of units to base and eye level with under-lighting and a complementing 'L' shaped composite stone work surface with inset circular sink unit and space for an electric cooker with extractor hood above. There is also an integrated 'fridge/freezer aswell as plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher. The two windows to these rooms have window shutters and enjoy a lovely view over the neighbouring field.
The main bedroom has the same aspect, fitted with a range of wardrobe cupboards together with a further built-in shallow cupboard. The en-suite shower room comprises a tiled enclosed bath with wall mounted shower attachment, low-level WC, wash hand basin, shelf, heated ladder style radiator, spotlighting and extractor fan. The second bedroom looks out to the side and there is also a shower room/wc.
The drive approach is via electrically operated gates with adjacent pedestrian path, which sweeps down to residents and visitors parking areas. There are a few acres (acreage to be verified) of stunning park-like grounds with manicured lawns, mature shrubs and trees. Strategic seating takes full advantage of the outlook with rock outcrops and two hard surface tennis courts to one corner. Adjacent woodland (Lake Wood) owned by the woodland trust provides a secluded backdrop and walks.
