Tenure: Freehold

Naldrett House is a fine example of a Grade II listed country house. The imposing Georgian style façade with its tasteful symmetry complements the original design and notable Horsham stone roof perfectly.

The current owners have redesigned and extended the house using bespoke contemporary architectural design and construction by the award winning LA Architects. The classic features of the existing house have been perfectly combined with the modern additions creating a stunning kitchen/breakfast/family room and entertaining facility opening onto both the courtyard and swimming pool area. The kitchen and family room are comprehensively fitted with Poggenpohl units and Miele appliances with a four oven Aga in situ. The high ceilings, glass walling and architectural glass features allow for an abundance of natural light throughout.

Modern design features throughout include underfloor heating to the majority of the ground floor, Leax lighting control systems and an extensive bespoke wine cellar with sliding shelves and a raised counter top, perfect for entertaining.

The first floor accommodates three principal spacious bedroom suites with the main suite housing a dressing room and luxurious bathroom suite. The additional bedrooms on this floor offer adaptable accommodation which could include reconfiguration to a guest/staff apartment with independent access (subject to the usual planning and building regulations). The second floor comprises of a further bedroom suite. Panoramic views of the grounds are enjoyed from all aspects of the house.

Note:
A further 41 acres approximately of pasture land available by separate negotiation is situated on the south side of the lane, divided into two fields with stock proof fencing and water, all enclosed by mature hedging (as outlined in blue on the land plan). Potential purchasers of the house and land (which has been subject to Farming Tenancies for a number of years) may wish to instruct their legal representatives to review the impact on the effective rate of SDLT of a property assessed as being of mixed use.

Naldrett House is situated on the Surrey/Sussex border approximately 1 mile south of the village of Rudgwick. This charming village has many amenities which include local shops, country pubs, GP Surgery, Dentist and Church.

The villages of Cranleigh and Billinghurst are 5 miles and 5.5 miles distant respectively and
provide more extensive shopping and leisure facilities. The market town of Horsham is about 7 miles east with its recently opened John Lewis and eclectic range of high street and independent shops, coffee shops and restaurants. The regional centre of Guildford is just over 14 miles north and provides a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants, bars and superb recreational facilities.

The surrounding countryside provides miles of breathtaking landscape for the outdoor enthusiast with Naldrett House adjoining the Downs Link footpath and bridleway. There is an extensive range of sporting facilities close by which include Slinfold Golf and Country Club, racing at Goodwood and Polo at Hurtwood Park and Cowdray Park.

There are a number of excellent schools in the area which include Pennthorpe, Farlington, Cranleigh, Christ's Hospital St Catherine's and Charterhouse.

Naldrett House is approached via a tree lined driveway and opens to a large gravelled forecourt. Electric gates to the side provide access to the triple bay oak barn style garage and further driveway parking. A garden and log stores sit laterally with a Solspan greenhouse and automatic irrigation system and flourishing peach tree. Additional raised vegetable beds
and orchard contain a variety of fruit trees.

The house is surrounded by landscaped gardens and grounds, undertaken by Chris Moss, an award winning international
garden designer. Areas of the gardens are architecturally separated by yew, beech and box hedges. Sweeping lawns surround the property with a large pond in place to the frontal aspect. At night the gardens are spectacularly lit
with a variety of outdoor lighting.

The courtyard adjoins the house and entertaining suite and provides exceptional outdoor entertaining space. The focal point is the Allison Armour Aqualens Sphere Fountain within a Portland stone ring from the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot. Within this area is the heated swimming pool with Indian limestone surround, a loggia to the side which has heating and lighting and the tennis court with retractable lighting. The grounds of approximately 4 acres spread from all aspects making this a very private and peaceful location.
