Full description

A charming and highly versatile Grade II listed detached house, full of fascinating history some of which relate to a Godson of Henry Vlll.

The property offers great living and outdoor versatility and enjoys beautiful views across the grounds measuring approximately 4 acres. Extended many years ago to provide a fully self contained annexe, the extra accommodation is currently incorporated into family living space with a more modern feel yet retains character features similar to those more present in the original section of the property.

The main accommodation in brief comprises a welcoming entrance hall with solid Oak flooring leading you in to the most stunning 26'4 x 17'11 sitting room with exposed beams and inglenook fireplace. The impressive dining room has an Arts & Crafts style open fire, this leads into the 14'8 x 7'3 kitchen. Further ground floor accommodation includes a shower room, cloakroom, the annexe bedroom with en-suite bathroom, sitting room and what would have been the kitchen still with plumbing but is now used more as a utility room. On the first floor there are sloping floors and exposed beams some of which have door frames with restricted head height, just what you would expect from a property of this age. The master bedroom has a walk in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. The 3 remaining bedrooms have use of the family bathroom. One very noticeable feature of this property is the amount of storage it benefits from. From the first floor there is a discreet staircase leading into a large loft space which is divided into two sections. The children have enjoyed using one side as a place to sleep occasionally.

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.
