A superb GRADE II LISTED country house with immediate appeal due to the tile hung elevations and Horsham stone roof tiles. There is a superb blend of both living and bedroom space approaching 4,000 ft.² with a superb and comfortable style throughout.

A reception hallway welcomes you and leads through to the main drawing room which enjoys a double aspect providing a light and airy space and centres around a Victorian style fireplace. There are many character features including picture rails and a stunning outlook over the formal gardens. Further living space includes sitting room, with double doors directly leading onto the rear garden, space which again centres around an open fireplace which provides an ideal social space for crisp winter evenings. This is part open to a further family room which doubles as ideal reading/music room. The kitchen/breakfast room has a bespoke design with contrasting Corian and timber worksurfaces, sit-up breakfast bar and ample storage space; from here you can enjoy fine views over the rear garden terrace out over the swimming pool area. Further ground floor living space includes a formal dining room plus a well-proportioned study with bay window.

The principal bedroom suite enjoys an aspect to the front of the property and has an adjacent well-proportioned ensuite bathroom with freestanding rolltop bath, separate large walk-in shower with rosehead shower, low-level WC and washhand basin. This then leads to a further walk-in dressing room which is ready shelved with thoughtful storage. Further space to the first floor includes three further bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobe space, separate bathroom, cloakroom and then a further lobby leading through to bedroom five with an additional shower; ideal for guests.

Situation

Outside

There is a stone built granary building which also features a Horsham stone roof with excellent potential, subject to usual planning consent, to create a self-contained annex/home office. A gated entrance leads to the gravel driveway which provides parking for several vehicles and leads to an oak framed car barn with bays for three vehicles and an adjacent store room. Either side of the parking area are well-maintained expanses of lawn, mature shrubs, rose bushes and hedge rows, enclosed by yew hedging. To the south side is a further private and secluded lawned area which also offers a mixture of mature trees and shrubs. A wonderful rose garden is situated on the north side of the house. A large terrace area at the rear elevation of the property provides the ideal space for alfresco dining and incorporates a heated swimming pool. There is also an attractive herb garden bordered by a low stone brick wall.

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.
