Full description

A beautiful, grade II listed 4 / 5 bedroom barn conversion offering flexible, family accommodation with a guest barn having 2 bedrooms and a sizeable family room. The property overlooks stunning gardens and a pond and benefits from an attractive block of 4 stables and some 15 acres with direct access onto the Downs link.

The property is set well back with the main barn arranged around a pretty courtyard overlooking the pond and gardens. Entrance into the inner hallway leads to the triple aspect kitchen with granite work tops, double oven, induction hob and integrated appliances. Off the hallway there is a good sized dining room, cloakroom and useful boot / cloakroom with a back door leading outside. The stunning vaulted drawing room showcases exposed timbers, some believed to date from the 14th century, and offers a fabulous living and entertaining space. There is a central log burning stove and double doors with double height windows overlooking the courtyard, pond and front garden. To the rear of the drawing room there is a useful study area and stairs lead up to a minstrel's gallery which is fitted as a library with a seating area. The gallery leads to the master suite which comprises a dressing room with fitted wardrobes, en-suite shower room and master bedroom with exposed beams. Downstairs there are a further three double bedrooms, one en-suite, and a family bathroom. There is also a good sized study which could also become a fifth double bedroom. An interesting and useful feature is the sizeable cellar accessed via a trap door in the hallway, currently fitted with storage shelves and wine racks.

The second guest barn has its own entrance but could also be incorporated into the main barn. There is an open plan family room with attractive views to the front. Upstairs there is a large, vaulted guest bedroom, a further guest double bedroom and a good sized bathroom. There is an integrated garage with ample parking to the rear and a pretty landscaped area with pergola, garden and orchard. To the front of the guest barn there is a circular decking area allowing for al-fresco dining and entertaining surrounded by a lawned garden which is securely fenced. A pretty brick built former granary is currently used for storage but could become a further guest annex, home office or holiday let (STP) as services are connected. There is a large pond with a fountain and a particularly fine ancient oak tree. At the bottom of the garden there is a timber block of four stables and a post and rail fenced paddock which would be the ideal location for a 60m x 20m sand school STP. Across the driveway there are further paddocks with established tree and hedge lined boundaries providing good natural shelter and shade. In all the property and land totals just over 15 acres.

Upper Swaynes Barn is situated in a rural, but not isolated position, just outside the village of Rudgwick with its post office, supermarket, farm shop and two schools; Rudgwick Primary School & Pennthorpe. There are a further range of amenities and recreational facilities in Cranleigh and Horsham which both lie 5 and 8 miles away respectively. There are good commuting links from the property, Horsham train station offers a comprehensive commuter service to London Victoria in under an hour and there is good access to the M23 which leads to the wider motorway network. There are a range of excellent schools in the area including Cottesmore, Ardingly, Handcross, Worth Abbey, Farlington and Windlesham House.

There are a range of leisure pursuits to enjoy nearby including Slinfold Golf and Country Club, Wildwood Golf Club, racing at Goodwood and Fontwell and sailing at Brighton and Chichester. The surrounding countryside offers excellent walking, cycling and riding. There is fabulous hacking from the property, a track which follows the driveway links up to the bridleway network which in turn provides direct access to the Downs Link, a public right of way which provides extensive hacking. Furthermore, there are a number of competition and training facilities nearby including Sands Farm, Bellmoredean, Coombelands, Hickstead and Felbridge.
