Enjoy a truly luxurious stay in a Grand Design, tucked away in the Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This idyllic home makes use of large open spaces, huge windows and a beautiful garden with its own wild pond for swimming. Guests can spend time on the tennis court before enjoying a sauna. Or head out and explore the surrounding woodland trails before going for a dip in the wood-fired hot tub.
This marvellous home, which was featured on Channel Four’s hit show Grand Designs, sleeps up to 12 guests and sits on one-and-a-half acres of land. As you would expect from a Grand Design, The Water Shed is an epic display of architectural wonder. Guests will love the triple-height atrium with its three-storey chimney, double-sweeping staircase and floating balconies that poke out over the dining space.
Chill with your loved ones on the comfy sofas that overlook the swimming pond, sweeping the huge glass doors open to let the outside in. Or gather in the lounge on the huge sofas and light the fireplace for an evening socialising over bottles of wine. After a busy day at the harbour you might just want to chill with a good movie, making use of one of the four smart TVs that feature Netflix or Amazon Prime, powered by Zen superfast broadband.
When the sun is shining you can relax on the sun loungers with a good book whilst soaking up some rays. Or, go for a dip in the swimming pond to cool off. Come the evening hop in the hot tub for a relaxing break as you gaze up at the stars above.
Back inside, the modern, spacious kitchen has all you need to whip up delicious feasts. Your fellow guests can keep you company up the kitchen island, which is also a nice spot for your morning coffee or casual breakfast. The grand dining table is ideal for more formal, celebratory meals and in summer you can dine alfresco in the pretty garden. The garden also has a number of cute seating areas, should you wish to socialise in the sunshine.
When bedtime beckons, The Water Shed has five beautiful bedrooms on offer. All of the beds are incredibly comfortable and make use of extra soft muslin linen, toppers and microfibre duvets. Add to this the peace and tranquillity of your surroundings and you and your loved ones are guaranteed a fab night’s sleep.
The master bedroom sits on the first floor with a king size bed. This space also has its own ensuite bathroom and a balcony with lovely views.
