Regency House is a beautiful example of a Regency town house in the centre of the picturesque town of Arundel, and within a short walk of the iconic castle and the cathedral. It is the perfect self-catering character house for a gathering of an extended family, or a group of friends looking for a sophisticated and elegant vacation rental. The living space on the ground floor is complemented by five luxurious bedrooms on the upper two floors.
The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall, with views through the house to the dining room at the back. As you pass through the hall you reach the wide, easy rising staircase in the middle of the house. The elegant drawing room is to your left, with a wide bow window overlooking the pavement and Maltravers Street outside. For cosy evenings at home there are working shutters on the window, so winter evenings could be spent with the fire lit and the shutters closed to enjoy the warm period ambiance. If period ambiance isn’t your thing, then the sophisticated television, Blu-Ray player and sound system will bring you right up to date.
To the rear of this luxury group accommodation is the modern, well fitted kitchen.
The large range style cooker has two ovens and plenty of hob space for cooking up a real feast. The adjacent dining room will comfortably seat the whole party and is furnished with an appropriately large antique table and chairs. The paintings on the wall have a Napoleonic theme, in keeping with the age of the house, although the Prince Regent may not have entirely approved.
On the lower ground floor the former servants’ accommodation has been retained remarkably intact. In many houses of this period this floor has been converted into a self contained flat, but here you have the full use of it. The former butler’s pantry has an old safe still in the wall, and for the benefit of the 21st century inhabitants there is a table football table, just the thing for a little inter-guest rivalry on a wet afternoon perhaps. Also on this floor is the former kitchen, now functioning as a laundry room. The former wine cellar is still down on this level too, but alas all of the wine has long gone.
On the first floor there are three glorious double bedrooms. The principal bedroom at the front of the house has an en-suite bathroom and a separate dressing area with more wardrobes than you will probably need whilst on holiday.
Overlooking the garden at the rear of this floor are two more very comfortable and spacious bedrooms, one has an en-suite shower room and a large built in closet. Also on this floor is a separate cloakroom and family bathroom with modern bath and shower attachment.
Back downstairs again, from the kitchen a door leads to the period conservatory beyond which lies a beautifully planted garden on several levels with a large terrace at the upper level. Ascending the steps through the lush almost Mediterranean planting of the garden you could almost imagine being in the South of France, and the terrace at the top of the garden is a fantastic sun trap. From this terrace there are views over tree tops towards the castle, and back towards the upper windows of Regency House itself. The terrace has a large table and plenty of chairs, along with a barbecue to allow al fresco dining and perhaps a relaxing glass of wine or two. A truly unique home stay in Sussex. Beach 5 miles.
