Elegance and character in substantial country house

A beautiful country house with character and plenty of light and airy living spaces is the ultimate for many home buyers. That perfect combination of period features and practical layout is evident at Griggs, an impressive 5 bedroom house near Horsham, which comes complete with outbuildings, a swimming pool, and a large wine cellar. 

Griggs is Grade II listed and presented with understated elegance for a fresh, comfortable feel which entirely complements the features of the house. Outside the classic architecture and Horsham stone roof reflect both history and location, while you step inside to light, bright living areas. 

Now on the market with Henry Adams in Horsham at £1,950,000, Griggs offers 5 reception rooms, one of which would make the perfect music room or family room. So there is plenty of space for large gatherings of family and friends, or to sit quietly by one of the three firesides.  

Nicholas Hapgood, Director at Henry Adams Horsham, said, “Griggs is one of the finest country homes in this area with all the advantages of period style and grace, tucked away in its own extensive gardens. The current owners have presented it beautifully to create a serene and welcoming home which offers both easy living and great style. 

“The principal bedroom suite, for example, has a dressing room and a well-proportioned ensuite which incorporates a freestanding roll-top bath and separate walk in shower. There are three further double bedrooms on the first floor plus a fifth bedroom which also has a private ensuite shower room, making it ideal for guests or a dream for teenagers.”

The bespoke kitchen, which features contrasting Corian and timber worksurfaces and a sit-up breakfast bar, affords views out across the extensive terracing to the heated swimming pool area and mature gardens, where the rose garden and a herb garden are particular highlights.  A separate stone built granary, also with a Horsham stone roof, could offer potential for further use, subject to the relevant consents.
