Full description

Originally a gardener's cottage to the Wimblehurst Estate, this substantial five bedroom property is mentioned on the Horsham town list of locally important historic buildings and over the years has been transformed to provide practical accommodation suitable for modern family living. The property is situated on the North side of Horsham, close to both mainline and Littlehaven train stations, close to Holbrook Sports Club and within the catchment area of some of the best local schools.

The accommodation is very versatile and incorporates an annexe with its own kitchen, reception room, bathroom and a bedroom, however, it can easily be used as a part of the main house if that's the preferred option. The accommodation comprises hallway leading into the main reception room, dining room and the kitchen to the left and annexe to the right hand side. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Despite there being over 2000 sqft of accommodation (excluding loft spaces and garage), the house has a cosy feel, enhanced by a wood burning stove in the main reception room and feature fireplaces. A gas fired Aga, terracotta flooring and shaker style units with wooden work surface in the kitchen, wooden flooring in the dining room and the over all colour scheme of fixtures and fittings gives the house warm and homely atmosphere.

Outside, the property benefits from its own driveway leading to the garage and there is also a carport providing parking for the annexe. The rear garden is mature, secluded and mainly laid to lawn with some flower beds.

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.
