    About this property

    • Horsehills Farm is a family home with a fabulous history. The original house dates back to about 1500 and was the original Black Horse Inn located beside a tollgate used by travellers between London and the South Coast until the current Reigate Road was built in about 1812. An extension in about 1800, added the Georgian portion which blends seamlessly with the original house and has the benefit of high ceilings and spacious rooms. The latest addition in the 21st century is the large detached Annexe that has been created in the third architectural style, that of a barn conversion.

      The accommodation in the main house is arranged over two floors to provide 2,819 sq ft of accommodation with the detached Annexe and stores adding a further 1,445 sq ft. The property is Grade II listed. The main house is arranged as five bedrooms and two bathrooms, with four reception rooms on the ground floor as shown in the floor plan. The property has been sensitively and meticulously restored and updated to provide a comfortable blend of modern fittings within the charming character of the farmhouse.

      Externally the property sits in about two acres of beautifully maintained gardens which include a well stocked lake and gorgeous rural views. The swimming pool is positioned at the rear of the property adjacent to the large barn style Annexe which has a stunning reception room, a fitted kitchen and changing room with shower and WC.

      The Annexe provides real flexibility in its potential use for home working, additional accommodation or just for the ability to enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding countryside when relaxing by the swimming pool or as the perfect venue for barbeques and gatherings. The rear of the annexe incorporates a number of additional rooms, which could be used for various purposes.

      The property is accessed via a gated driveway to a large shingle private forecourt where there is parking for a number of vehicles. There is also a double car port. There is an additional brick built outbuilding housing the laundry room and two log stores.

      Please note the property has private drainage.
