INTERNAL A rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a piece of history, dating back to the 18th century, being full of history and providing a wealth of original features throughout. Sompting Peveril was listed in Norman times and then inherited down the Peverel family becoming a Vicarage and then being rebuilt in the 1720s. Internally the property comprises of a generously proportioned grand entrance hall with feature fireplace and doors lead to all principle reception rooms and the kitchen/breakfast room. On the ground floor there is a study/office, which could also be used as a sixth bedroom if required, drawing room being L shaped with space for a family room and additional furniture. The dining room is a beautifully set up room with feature fireplace and room for a substantial dining table and chairs. The kitchen/dining room provides feature breakfast bar with a door leading straight into the dining room but also a laundry room. With built in oven, solid worktops and cupboards and an extra space for dining furniture, this room is bright and airy. Other rooms on the ground floor include a wc, games room, coach house and a conservatory with indoor pool and changing room. On the first floor there are five further double bedrooms, family bathroom, generously proportioned landing/reading area, which is currently being used as a further lounge area incorporating sofa and tv. There is also a Jack and Jill shower room which is shared between two of the bedrooms, one of which has a walk in dressing room and both which benefit views over the land.

The current vendor has installed in the region of 10,000 trees, there is a fully stocked pond suitable for fishing and a space for a vegetable plot/green house and even bee keeping! The land would also be suitable for keeping of horses/pigs or other livestock. There is a tennis court and a more formal area of garden being wall enclosed and would make a perfect football pitch for the younger family members. Alfresco dining and parties, this would make an incredible social space in the spring and summer months, offering a Westerly aspect.
