We completely refurbished our beautiful home in 2014. The house is a beautiful Victorian villa and was built in 1890 with nearly all of the original features including a black marble fireplace, coving and stained glass windows. We have restored the house back to its former glory as well as building a huge open plan (100m2), VERY high spec modern kitchen extension WITH ALL THE MOD CONS including:
RANGE COOKER 2 full size ovens, grill and 6 gas hobs,
BOSCH/ PANASONIC appliances,
Utility room with 2 WASHING MACHINES & DRYER
COFFEE MACHINE WITH PODS
Large 3D HD Smart TVs and integrated sound system,
UNDERFLOOR HEATING THOUGHOUT THE HOUSE
Large WOOD BURNER
HUGE ISLAND that SEATS 6
American Fridge Freezer with cooled filtered water and ice maker
Porcelain crockery and plenty of matching glasses.
We designed the house to have lots of people to stay. Most of the beds have memory foam (Tempur) mattresses and are very comfortable. There are 8m of bi-folding doors that open onto the large deck so it feels like outside even when you're in the kitchen.
The Victorian house is decorated in a more traditional style with a baby grand piano, and antique furniture. The modern kitchen extension is more contemporary with modern art and furniture.
There is a drawing room for the adults to relax in and a separate playroom with loads of DVDs and LOADS OF TOYS FOR THE KIDS. There is also an original Victorian conservatory as a craft/ 2nd playroom for the children.
There are 4 KING SIZE DOUBLE bedrooms, 3 TWIN ROOMS, (2 are bunk rooms where 1 bunk can become 2 single beds) as well as a cot for babies (so the house easily sleeps 14 + child/ baby in proper beds).
There are now 4 bathrooms (2 ensuite completed April 2018) and have large walk in showers and underfloor heating. 2 have baths and showers. There is a high pressure water system and large water tank to cater for lots of people staying.
The 2 ensuite bathrooms are brand new (April 2018) and have large walk in showers, WCs and basins, underfloor heating.
We have a lovely secluded back garden for children to play or for the adults to relax on the large deck. The garden is mainly grass lawn and there are 2 football goals and lots of other sporting equipment to play with such as tennis rackets and net, bikes, scooters & boogie boards. There is also a Wendy house with electric lighting for the kids to enjoy and a bouncy castle for small children. There is a large undercover gas BBQ for you to use as well.
There is off street PARKING on the drive for up to 4 or 5 cars and a large garage with 3 adults' and 5 kids' bikes, scooters and bouncy castle etc. so if you fancy a bike trip there are many places locally you can visit.
We are 1.5 hours on the direct train from central London (Clapham Junction or Victoria Station) so it's easy to go for the day and we frequently do to see friends and family. We are also only 45 mins from London's Gatwick Airport and there are direct trains to Angmering, our nearest station (1 mile away).
Rustington is a small town by the sea. It has everything you need such as restaurants, shops, banks, cafes, coffee shops, post office, pubs, Churches, dry cleaners etc all within a few minutes walk from the house. There are also good language courses a short drive from the house. We are a 10 minute walk from the beach.
There are lots of good restaurants locally and lots of local attractions such as a golf driving range and numerous golf courses, adventure golf, indoor climbing and bowling, miniature train rides, soft play, amusement parks and great walks and, lots of sandy beaches, dunes and the South Downs National Park.
