Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A classic Country House set in beautiful gardens with commanding views

We understand that Church Hill House has been lived in by only five families since it was built in 1914 by Newlands Tomkins who was the local auctioneer and estate agent. Tomkins bought the land from the church commissioners. Construction is traditional in the arts and craft style being
brick elevations under a tile roof with heavy oak and seasoned pine lead light windows.

Accommodation is arranged over three floors as indicated on the attached floor plans. The house has many notable and character features including working fireplaces which have been lovingly restored by our clients. Also of particular note, old millstones were built in several places and just outside is a George IV penny, whilst the roof has a beer bottle inset as was the tradition of roofers at the time, on completion of a new roof. Our clients have highlighted that according to auction particulars when the house was sold by Newland Tomkins’ heirs in 1962, a time capsule was listed as buried under the mill stone in the hall.

The ground floor rooms lead off a central and inner hall leading to the delightful sitting room, drawing room, study and a fabulous kitchen which has been added by our clients with a mind to entertaining and as the true focal room of the house. The room is double height with a vaulted ceiling and a floor to ceiling glazed westerly facing façade with bi fold doors stepping out to a Pergola framed patio, perfect for alfresco dining.

The first floor bedrooms all enjoy lovely views over the garden with the southerly facing rooms also enjoying commanding and far reaching views towards the South Downs. The upper floor provides a delightful guest
bedroom, again with southerly views and an en suite shower room plus a walk in attic store room.
Gardens and grounds
The gardens and grounds of Church Hill House are truly beautiful with an abundance of specimen planting, a kitchen and separate fruit garden planting producing a bountiful crop as well as providing the onlooker with a
peaceful haven for relaxing.

The house is approached from Church Hill onto a long shingle drive along the western section of the garden drawing up to a parking area and garage. Beyond the house is a lawned garden with established flower beds.
In one corner of the garden is a WWII Anderson Shelter which has been converted for the storage of wine. Above the lawned garden a mowed path leads to a wild garden and fruit garden. The views from this area stretch out over the Pulborough Wild Brooks with The South Downs National Park as a stunning back drop.
The owners advise us that Church Hill House has gas fired central heating, mains drainage, mains electricity and a broadband internet capability.
