Property Description

Key features


Full description

The property comprises an early 18th Century timber framed barn which has been converted to provide a fine country house in an excellent location with delightful gardens, grounds and outbuilding. We understand that Hundred Steddle refers to a meeting place for 100 families.

The 3509 sq.ft property comprises a main timber framed barn, the central portion of which is open to the full roof pitch, with a Dining Hall on the ground floor and galleried landings above where there is access to Bedrooms and the Sitting Room. On the north side of the building is a single storey attached building which has now been converted to provide a 2 Bedroom Annexe, although this accommodation could be easily used as part of the main house. The gardens are on the east side of the house and are delightful and well-stocked and have the atmosphere of an Italian garden. Beyond this is the swimming pool complex and to the south of the buildings is an area of pastureland. The barn itself has some magnificent original timbers and the conversion, which has been done to an extremely high standard, has some splendid solid oak internal latched doors and cupboards. The Sitting Room, which is on the first floor, has a southerly view of The Downs, but the accommodation of the barn is sufficiently flexible that the present Dining Hall could be used as a main Sitting Room and Dining Room.

The property is heated by oil-fired central heating.

There are views across the South Downs National Park to Devil's Dyke, Chanctonbury and Truleigh Hills.
Hundred Steddle Barn is situated in a delightful semi-rural location about 1
mile to the east of the village of Henfield and just north of the South Downs. Henfield village provides a very good local shopping parade and other amenities and Brighton, on the coast to the south-east, provides an extensive range of shopping. Access to A23/M23 is about 2 1/2 miles to the east with direct access to Brighton to the south or north to the M23, Gatwick Airport and the national motorway network. Rail services are
available at Hassocks and Gatwick Airport to London Bridge and Victoria
and of course south to Brighton. Amenities in the area include sailing at
Brighton Marina, racing at Brighton, Lingfield, Goodwood and Fontwell,
Hunting with the South Downs and Crawley and Horsham Packs, show
jumping at Hickstead and golf at various courses in the locality.
