Tern House is a delightful period Grade II listed house offering well-proportioned, bright accommodation and very good sized, attractive gardens. The village setting is peaceful, with South Mundham being one of the most desirable villages in the area. Particular features of note include a detached studio annexe, the westerly aspect gardens backing on to open farmland, as well as the country cottage style kitchen.
On entering the house, the spacious reception hall offers the ideal space to greet guests, featuring a wood-burner with an exposed brick surround and timber mantle, as well as space for seating. The sitting room is part of a two-storey extension believed to have been added to the house in the 1980 s and is a light, dual aspect room with French doors opening to the side of the house. The kitchen/breakfast room offers a range of country style units with an AGA and Bosch integrated oven. There is space for a fridge/freezer and slim-line dishwasher, as well as ample space for a breakfast table. An arched opening leads from the kitchen to the dining room, which also offers a bright dual aspect with French doors opening to the rear garden. The ground floor is completed by bathroom which leads to a small utility room.
To the first floor, there is a good sized, triple aspect principal bedroom with an en suite shower room and fitted wardrobe space. There are two further bedrooms, one of which also offers fitted wardrobe space and has an en suite cloakroom.
Tern House is set behind a low brick and stone wall approached via a split gravelled driveway which provides off-road parking for a numerous of vehicles. To the front of the house is a small area of lawned garden edged by mature shrubs and fencing. The gravelled driveway extends round the side of the house and across the width of the gardens, leading to gated access to the rear gardens. The gardens have been attractively designed and planted, providing two distinct areas separated by picket fencing and both backing on to open farmland. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn and well stocked with mature shrubs and trees. To the side of the house, what is believed to be the old wash house has been converted in to a detached studio annexe. This studio has great character, with exposed beams and brickwork, featuring a kitchenette to one corner, a wood-burner and an en suite shower room. Adjacent to this is a timber summer house that would be ideal as an art studio.
