The Property
Coates Castle, which is Listed Grade II, was built by John King in the 1820s in the Strawberry Hill Gothic Style. He sold the property to George Wyndham whose Coat of Arms appears above the original main entrance. There is a lot of history attached to the building, with many famous visitors including Sir Winston Churchill and Kaiser Wilhelm. Coates Castle is constructed of stuccoed stone with crenulated gables, buttresses and gothic style turrets. The property is set well back from Coates Lane down its own drive, past woodland and ancient trees and surrounded by the Barlavington Estate land and beautiful open countryside which offers exclusive access for walking to the occupants of the Castle.

5 Coates Castle shares fine, castellated architectural features derived from the main house. It was most probably the residence of the head groom/coachman and his family when Coates Castle was a fully staffed Estate. It is detached from the main house but attached to a neighbour and accessed via a brick courtyard. The very large coach house also attached is built of stone under a slate roof and has 3 sets of double doors that open into a vast garage. Subject to normal consents this could be adapted to suit the purchaser.The front door opens into a large dining hall with bespoke fitted book shelves, off which is the inner hall and staircase, enriched with natural light. The sitting room has a wood burning stove and small study area. The kitchen/breakfast room has an oil fired rayburn. On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and a study/bedroom 4, and on the second floor a large master bedroom with access to a stunning roof terrace where a tree top perspective of the beautiful surroundings can be enjoyed.

The Garden
To the rear of the property is a fully enclosed, private garden with a paved terrace, lawn with flower borders and box hedging. Parking is in the courtyard with an additional parking area to the side of the house.

The Location
Coates is a hamlet near the village of Fittleworth which has a public house. The towns of Pulborough and Petworth are close by and provide for most everyday needs, whilst Guildford in Surrey and the Cathedral city of Chichester, both with renowned theatres, are within easy reach and have more extensive shopping and leisure facilities. The A3 provides fast access to London, the motorway network, Gatwick, Heathrow and Southampton airports, whilst the mainline station at Pulborough provides a fast service to London Victoria.

The surrounding area has much to offer with polo at Cowdray Park, horse racing at Goodwood and Fontwell, golf at Cowdray Park, Goodwood and Pulborough, motor racing at the historic Goodwood circuit and sailing out of Chichester Harbour and other centres along the South Coast. There are many footpaths and bridleways in the area for walking and riding.
