Full description

Offering a wealth of charm and many character features, Porch House offers well thought out living space arranged over a total of four floors. It meets the needs of the modern day buyer and is positioned within a generous plot which incorporates ample driveway parking, detached double garage with an adjoining office and lower ground floor cellar. The property benefits from being within walking distance of Horsham town centre.

To the ground floor is the principal sitting room which enjoys a double aspect and centres around an inglenook fireplace and open fire grate. There is a door then leading to the cellar. There is a further family room which also enjoys an aspect to the front and is equally comfortable with an inglenook fireplace, incorporating a log burner. Doors to upstairs are accessed via the family room. The kitchen/dining room is at the rear of the property and enjoys views over the rear garden. It has a range of wall and base units incorporating space for a dining table and also has exposed beams and brickwork. Also of note to the ground floor is a separate utility room and downstairs shower room, ideal for a growing family.

To the first floor is the main bedroom which enjoys views out over the front garden and has ample fitted wardrobe space. There is a second bedroom which is double aspect and therefore also light and airy and then a separate family bathroom. Stairs lead from the landing to the second floor where there are two further bedrooms, both of which enjoy an aspect out to each side of the property and would be ideal for occasional guest bedrooms or older children.



Porch House sits within the spacious plot which is predominantly laid to lawn and has boundaries and borders that are well stocked with mature shrubs, fruit trees and plants. Private gates open to a gravel driveway providing parking for several vehicles. A gravel pathway leads to the front door and separate path to the front access gate. Within the gardens is an insulated, double-glazed timber built log cabin with internet, power and light, currently used as an art studio. A wide gravel drive leads to a detached double garage and adjoining office with internet, light, power and night storage heating with ample roof storage above, perfect for a home business. The 8ft x 14ft garden shed also has power and light. There is also a 3 tier ornamental fountain.


There is a gate approximately 80 metres from Porch House which leads directly into Horsham Park with pathways direct to the town and other facilities. The town can be accessed directly on foot and takes only 8 to 10 minutes brisk walk or 3 minutes on a bicycle. Horsham mainline train station is also close by and is perfect for commutability to London, Gatwick, Chichester and Southampton.

Why live in Horsham?

Horsham strikes the perfect balance with its community facilities and green spaces. There’s a market square at The Carfax complete with traditional bandstand, an abundance of shops, a cinema, theatre, leisure centre and a 60-acre park right in the centre of town.

We have an impressive mix of older properties, including historic buildings from the 1400s and 1500s with later additions from the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras and some stunning artistic properties. Head out along The Causeway and you’ll see every style, from 15th century homes to new builds, on one superb road.

Horsham has many great schools, both state and private, junior and senior. Millais, Tanbridge House, Farlington, Windlesham House, St Marys and Heron Way all have excellent Ofsted ratings and have received equally positive reviews from pupils and parents. There’s a good range of shopping here too, including high street favourites and independent stores and coffee shops. You’ll also find a huge selection of eateries, bars, cafés and pubs in the town and a particularly high density of restaurants along East Street that has given rise to its nickname, ‘Eat Street’.

We have a great tradition of sports in Horsham and, more importantly, of supporting our local teams. Our town is the proud host of Sussex Cricket Club, which frequently plays on the Horsham Cricket Club grounds while the local cricket, football and rugby teams also attract great crowds on match days. If you like walking in beautiful countryside you’ll be spoilt for choice in Horsham while the Southwater Country Park has a Dinosaur Island play area for young families and kayaking and canoeing facilities for older children. The Pavilions in the Park leisure centre has indoor and outdoor heated pools and an aerial adventure course with ropes and a climbing wall. For more cultural pursuits, the Capitol Theatre and Cinema on North Street has a busy calendar of both theatrical productions and the latest movies.
