When you are looking for a home with the 'wow' factor then look no further.

'Chantry' is an outstanding house in an elevated position with far reaching views towards Portsdown Hill and the South Downs in the distance, it sits proudly back from the road behind a high retaining wall in grounds extending to approximately 2.3 acres.

And this striking property has a guide price of £3,995,000.

This imposing home represents the unique opportunity to buy an impressive neo Georgian symmetrical fronted modern home which was constructed in 2008 to exacting standards and exceptional attention to detail.

Many of us like to cultivate a touch of luxury in our lives and what better way than in owning a spacious, modern home particularly when it is one that enjoys a very special setting with unspoilt views from an elevated position.

At the front of the property is a gated entrance leading to a gravelled driveway with extensive parking and the gardens, truly a wonderful setting in grounds laid out by the renowned plant collector Lady Norman who lived in a house which formerly occupied the site and we understand, played host to, amongst others Lord Louis Mountbatten.

The rear of the house faces south east and opens onto an extensive terrace with stone balustrades and steps leading down to lower lawns.

The well designed and symmetrical frontage is a typical copy of the Georgian era, with large windows, high ceilings and a symmetrical facade.

The accommodation provides over 7,100 sq ft of living space, arranged over three primary floors, it has the flexibility demanded by modern families with a well equipped 'Leicht' kitchen with a selection of 'Miele' appliances.

There are six reception areas, utility space and an integral triple garage on the ground floor with four primary bedrooms off the extensive galleried landing with a separate one bedroom annexe in the east wing (serviced by its own staircase), on the top floor there is the opportunity of using the open space to provide a separate teenage/au pair annexe, each bedroom has en-suite facilities.

'Chantry', although built on a grand scale the layout provides for flexible living, with large light and airy rooms with deep sash style windows, high ceilings and outstanding panoramic views, the elegant, architectural joinery by the acclaimed firm Hayburn & Co. Complimented by cornicing and handmade ceiling mouldings, the sanitary fittings are by 'Porcelanosa', in marble, limestone, ceramic and granite.

The attention to detail extends beneath the surface with all floors having a solid concrete construction with underfloor heating throughout, thick layers of insulation keep running costs to a minimum with a heating system insuring that simultaneous hot water demands on all floors are well within capacity.

Throughout the house is zoned mood lighting, CAT5 and CCTV cabling, 3 phase electricity and a video entry phone system.
