A superb period cottage and sensational barn conversion situated in an idyllic setting surrounded by farmland and woodland.
Montpelier Farmhouse has an abundance of charm and is situated in an idyllic spot on the outskirts of the market town of Petworth offering a high level of privacy. The property is made up of two dwellings; a detached former Leconfield farmhouse and a newly converted barn that offers flexible living accommodation. Dating from the 18th century with later additions, the house and barn have been extensively refurbished to a very high standard by the current owners who have created a stylish, comfortable and well-appointed home in a tranquil rural location overlooking neighbouring farmland and with access to the nearby woodland.
The property has retained many of its period features balanced with modern amenities and the accommodation comprises two fabulous reception rooms, a dining room and sitting room with inglenook fireplace. The family kitchen has been beautifully designed with a range of fitted cupboards, oak worktops and bespoke shelving, as well as a Rangemaster cooker, butler sink and Smeg fridge. The flagstone flooring has the benefit of underfloor heating and the space is wonderfully light with doors out on to the rear and front gardens. The downstairs is completed by a utility/boot room and a downstairs cloakroom.
On the first floor there are three good sized double bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room and there is a family bathroom serving the two bedrooms.
In addition to the cottage, there is an outstanding two bedroom barn. This versatile space could be used as the main residence or an ideal space for both entertaining and guest accommodation.
The barn is configured in an open plan arrangement and is a magnificent space with a vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers. The two double bedrooms both have en suite bath/shower rooms. Stairs lead to a mezzanine study area which overlooks the entertaining space below. This is currently being used as a home office but could lend itself to be an additional bedroom.

I love the setting of this property, surrounded by a sea of cornfields and it is wonderfully peaceful and private. It represents a fabulous blend of an old cottage with the modernity of a stunning barn conversion - great for friends visiting, parties and entertaining.James Machell
