Shernfold Park is a Grade II listed Victorian mansion designed by the architect Lewis Vulliamy and built in 1855 and was converted into 12 flats around the middle of last century.
Flat 4 is a ground floor apartment in the central portion of the building, benefitting from high ceilings with decorative coving, deep skirting boards, wood panelled doors and shuttered sash windows typical of grand houses of the period. Of particular note is the drawing room, believed to be formed from part of the ballroom of the original house. The property offers potential for updating.
Further points of note include:
- drawing room with impressive high ceiling, featuring ornate coving and a ceiling rose and boasting a stunning view over the grounds, neighbouring fields and the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty through two tall sash windows. The room also features a fireplace with marble surround, mantel and hearth;
- kitchen fitted with wall and base units, a sink with drainer and space for white goods. A deep-set sash window looks out over the circular drive to the front;
- two double bedrooms, one of which has built-in wardrobes and a sash window to the front and the other with a half-glazed door leading out to a small seating area overlooking the grounds and beyond to the South;
- bathroom plus a separate cloakroom with shower;
- en bloc garage, with additional space for parking on the periphery of the circular drive to the front of the house;
- communal grounds of about 7.6 acres including formal gardens with lawns, terracing, planted borders, gravel pathways and stone balustrading leading to park-like lawns with fine specimen trees and flowering shrubs, from which the stunning views can be enjoyed.
