Key features


Full description

This substantial family house enjoys an enviable location at the top of the cul-de-sac with far reaching views to the front of the property and overlooking the open fields to the rear. The accommodation extending to over 2,000 sq.ft. is very versatile and offers scope to put one's own stamp on it to suit individual needs.

The entrance hallway leads to the family room which is currently being used as a gym with a door to the garage. The main reception room features a gas effect fire and overlooks the front of the property. The kitchen/breakfast room is fully fitted with oak units providing useful storage and there is also space for a table. The formal dining room is accessible from both sitting room and the kitchen and leads into the garden room with double doors opening onto the patio. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms all with good storage options and a family bathroom.

Outside, the large rear garden is a particular feature of the property, wrapping around the house and enjoying a pleasant outlook over the adjoining fields. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees. The size and the location make the house an ideal family home in a semi-rural location close to Horsham, Haywards Heath and Billingshurst with easy access to major roads for London or Brighton commuters.



The delightful Sussex countryside surrounds the village of Cowfold, offering beautiful walks and views towards the South Downs. The village is well situated for the road networks of the A272, A281 and of course the A23, offering access to the south coast, Gatwick and the M25.

Cowfold has a church, primary school, public house, doctors' surgery and Co-op. For the commuter there are excellent links up to London via Haywards Heath and Horsham and also down to Brighton via Three Bridges.

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.
