Full description

This spacious family home, in a popular location, has been in the same ownership since it was built in 1973 by a local builder and has had several extensions added. Offering excellent size rooms throughout, it provides well designed living and bedroom space arranged over two floors, totalling approximately 2,287 Sq.ft.

Through the front door, the hallway has arched double doors opening to a further spacious reception hallway; this in turn leads to the principal sitting dining room, which measures an impressive 30 ft. and enjoys a set of sliding patio doors and a full height picture window, flooding the room with light and providing views over the rear garden. Also of note in the sitting room is a large York stone feature fireplace currently housing a gas fire, but with the opportunity for an open fire. The sitting dining room and reception hallway are fitted throughout with woodblock flooring (currently carpeted).

The 22 ft. kitchen/breakfast room has an extensive range of wall and base units with a bespoke finish offering ample storage space and integrated appliances. Features include a vaulted ceiling, areas of exposed brickwork and a large breakfast bar comfortably seating 5 people. From the reception hallway there is direct access to the double garage and also a large cloak/storage cupboard and separate WC.

A turning staircase leads to the first-floor landing where the principal bedroom enjoys a superb walk-through dressing room and ensuite bathroom. This features a luxurious bathroom suite with oversize bath, separate power shower, twin vanity wash basins and WC.


There is ample wardrobe storage space, beyond which is the bedroom area that enjoys an aspect to the front of the property. A second bedroom, with views over the rear garden, has a modern refitted ensuite shower room and built-in wardrobe. There are two further bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and eaves storage, one with a vanity sink. Plus, there is a family bathroom finished to an excellent standard with a wall mounted shower over the bath.


To the front, a block paved driveway provides parking for several vehicles and leads directly to the double garage which has an electric up and over door and is well equipped with power, lighting, handbasin and facilities for a workshop. There is a selection of beds with mature planting and a boundary hedge to the front providing security and privacy. The rear garden has a patio terrace running the width of the property which provides areas for alfresco dining and leads to the level lawn area.

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.
