Full description

SITUATION: Birchwood occupies a rural location backing onto woodland and adjoining fields about 3 miles north of Petworth. Balls Cross is a small and unspoilt village of mostly period houses and cottages and is well known for its seventeenth century Stag Inn while Kirdford (2 miles) has an excellent community run village shop. Nearby Petworth is an attractive old market town perhaps best known for the National Trust owned Petworth House with its beautiful 750 acre parkland. The town offers a good range of shops for everyday needs together with a wealth of antique shops. State schools in the area include Petworth Primary School and Midhurst Rother College. In the private sector, Seaford College, Dorset House and Conifers. Sporting activities include golf at Cowdray Park and Petworth Downs, Polo at Cowdray Park and horse racing at Goodwood and Fontwell. Communications with London are surprisingly easy with mainline stations at Haslemere (8 miles, Waterloo 60 minutes) and Pulborough (5 miles, Victoria 70 minutes). The A3 (M) is within a 14 mile drive. The area abounds with footpaths leading through some of the most beautiful countryside in West Sussex.

DESCRIPTION: Birchwood comprises a spacious detached house with mainly ground floor accommodation and planning consent to create considerable additional first floor living space. Features include a 32 Sitting room with open fireplace, fielded panelled internal doors and direct access from the principal rooms to a west facing garden terrace. The front door opens to a reception hall with cloakroom and leads on to the magnificent double aspect sitting room with its polished hardwood floor. Double doors open to the dining room and adjacent kitchen which leads to the conservatory with its ceramic tiled floor and doors to the garden. The double aspect master bedroom is well fitted with a range of wardrobe cupboards and its ensuite bathroom has a separate, bath and walk-in shower. Bedroom 2 has an ensuite bathroom and the study/bedroom 3 also has direct access to the same bathroom. From the hall, stairs rise to the first floor and a further bedroom and bathroom along with a useful storage room. The largely undeveloped first floor roof space of the property offers tremendous potential to create a much larger house (subject to planning consent) which would be well justified by the delightful rural setting.


OUTSIDE: The integral double garage and adjoining store provides space for three large cars and there is a detached timber built workshop. The property is approached from the lane by a sweeping gravelled driveway leading to a circular turning area in front of the house. Wrought iron gates lead to the rear and a paved sun terrace opening onto lawns which are enclosed by mature hedges and border directly on to light woodland and open fields.

SERVICES: Mains water, electricity and private drainage. Oil fired central heating.
