About this property

  • A country house of immense character situated in a private position, surrounded by its own land, on the edge of an idyllic West Sussex village. Being Grade II listed, the property is believed to date as far back as the early 17th Century. The house features original timber beams, large inglenook fireplaces and original wooden doors, the current owners have carefully refurbished the house during their ownership, creating a stylish and contemporary family house, with surprisingly grand proportions for a house of this age. The entrance hall with ample storage space, opens into a full height central hall from which the family sitting room, well equipped study and formal drawing room are arranged. The kitchen, dining room and conservatory are found at the end of this open hall and flow brilliantly into one another, with views over the private pond and gardens to the side. The kitchen has double doors opening onto the terrace overlooking the duck pond (ideal for al fresco dining) and a very impressive vaulted ceiling, giving the feeling of great space and light.

    The upstairs accommodation is equally as spacious and is situated over two floors, with each bedroom coming off the circular full height landing. There are six double bedroom suites in total, all with en suite bathrooms which is again very unusual for a property of this age. The notable principal suite benefits from a double aspect, a dressing room and a full en suite bathroom.  All upstairs bathrooms have been replaced within the last year.
     
    ‘Gingerbread Cottage', which has it's own private terrace and sits adjacent to the heated outdoor swimming pool, provides charming guest or staff accommodation, comprising one bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and sitting room complete with log burning stove.

    The outstanding Tithe Barn is over 1500 sqft in space and has been beautifully restored provides ample space for entertaining and dining on a grand scale. There is under floor heating, a cloak room, a full commercially equipped kitchen and large double doors out into the garden on each side. This memorable room is perfect for formal entertaining or hosting events with a built in sound system, double doors onto the garden, two WC's and a working kitchen.

    Outside, the gardens and grounds surround the house and flow away towards the north and east. Approached through an electric gate the front driveway meanders to the house with lawn gardens either side.
