It has the benefit of a self-contained annexe, a detached garden office with its own shower room and a further workshop ideal for use as a work from home business.

The main house is accessed via an impressive and well-proportioned reception hallway which has double doors leading into the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen has a range of wall and base cabinets with contrasting granite work surfaces running through. There is an inset butler sink and an Aga. There is ample space for dining table and a light and airy feeling due to the double aspect. The main reception space incorporates a sitting room with double doors leading to the garden. There is a fireplace that incorporates a log burner and a quality parquet flooring running through. The separate dining room is an ideal opportunity for social occasions with panelled walls and double doors leading directly onto the garden terrace. Also of note to the ground floor is a rear accessed reception lobby/boot room, plus a separate convenient utility room.

Situation

The first of two staircases leads from the reception hall to the first floor where there is a superb selection of bedrooms and bathrooms. The main bedroom suite enjoys bi-folding doors leading out to a elevated balcony where you can enjoy super views across the valley to the countryside and beyond. There is ample fitted wardrobes and cupboard as well as a well-equipped en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower and a separate personal staircase leading to the ground floor. The second bedroom is of an impressive size and enjoys views over the gardens and has a well equipped en-suite shower room with a shower, wash hand basin and low-level WC. There are three further bedrooms, plus a well equipped family bathroom which has a freestanding roll top bath, separate shower, wash hand basin, low-level WC, all complimented with travertine tiling and a classically styled heated towel rail/radiator.

Outside

The electrically operated gated access leads to driveway parking providing space for several vehicles. This sweeps around the rear of the property leading to the double bayed covered car barn. The garden office has a office space with three further storage spaces, plus an access lobby leading to a small shower room. The gardens of 0.64 of an acre have been beautifully landscaped with a selection of beds and borders with mature shrubs, planting and large expenses of lawn. There are mature hedge rows to the boundaries and super views through the vistas and to the valleys beyond. The stone paved terrace area is covered with a timber pergola and offers the ideal space for outdoor entertaining.

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.
