**Price Guide £3,400,000 - £3,900,000**
A fantastic opportunity to purchase an attractive Grade II listed period house with its own private air strip and various outbuildings, set in approximately 80 acres.

DESCRIPTION
The property is believed to have origins dating back to the 15th Century with its latest additions having been added in the 20th Century. The house has timber framed elevations of brick and stone beneath a predominantly clay tiled roof, although parts of the original Horsham stone roof remain. The house has been listed Grade II of Architectural and Historic Interest.

The property is served by 2 staircases and the rooms to the northern end on both the ground and first floor could easily be utilised to provide a self-contained annexe. The house boasts some fantastic fireplaces, most notably the inglenook in the drawing room, and smaller examples in the sitting room and entrance hall. Other features, to name but a few, in the main house include the winklestone floor in the entrance hall, a carved green man in the dining room, a particularly fine timber mullioned window in the sitting room and a splendid galleried landing on the first floor. The kitchen/breakfast room is worthy of note, having an Aga to one wall and an open fireplace to another. Double doors also open from this room out on to the terrace which gives way to the garden and, in turn, fields beyond.

The property is a small country estate of enormous character, occupying a private position yet remains accessible to both the surrounding towns and villages, as well as being eminently commutable to London. It encompasses just over 80 acres of unspoilt West Sussex countryside and is a haven for wildlife.


OUTSIDE
The house is is approached via a long sweeping driveway which divides just before the property. The left hand spur terminates in a parking area to one side of Sparr Farm, adjacent to which there is a large outbuilding which provides garaging for 3 cars and 3 loose boxes. To the east of this building there is a further useful timber outbuilding, whilst to the west there is a kitchen garden with raised beds. The right hand spur of the drive takes you past the tennis court, which now requires some refurbishment and terminates at the open sided barn and aircraft hanger. Attached to one side of the hanger there is a large store, whilst to the other there is a useful workshop alongside an open-fronted tractor shed.

Immediately adjoining both the east and west side of the house there are attractive stone terraces which benefit from views across the gardens to the fields beyond. The gardens are well planted with a mixture of well established mature trees, native to the area, shrubs and flowers. There are two ornamental ponds and numerous productive fruit trees.

To the south-east of the gardens there is a beautiful traditional Sussex barn which has been utilised for many years for entertainment. The majority of this space is one large room with a high vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove, whilst to the other end there is a kitchen area and shower room. Above these areas there is a timber staircase that leads up to a first floor mezzanine. Beyond the barn there is a swimming pool with surrounding paved terrace, adjacent to which is the pool house. The majority of the gardens are enclosed by a mixture of post and rail and traditional iron estate fencing. The remainder of the land is divided by traditional hedgerows and areas of woodland, including a beautiful bluebell wood. There is a pretty stream that forms part of the eastern boundary. Within the fields there is a grass airstrip.

The farm land is currently productively managed and maintained by a local farmer.
