An imposing period family home set within 34.8 acres of stunning farmland. The property has been in the same family for over 40 years and would benefit from a programme of refurbishment to restore the property and take advantage of the charm and character offered.

The house itself has accommodation arranged over two floors and is approached by an ample reception hall with stairs rising to the first floor. Further rooms on the ground floor comprise of a dual aspect siting room, similar dining room and a good sized study. To the rear is a kitchen breakfast room and a further reception room. To the first floor are five bedrooms, with the master and guest bedrooms both having en-suite bathrooms and the remaining three bedrooms being served by the family bathroom.


The property is located between the villages of Wivelsfield Green and Plumpton Green, accessible to the primary school, village hall, a general store/post office and a mainline station which has services to London (about 1 hour) and Brighton. A wider range of shops and facilities can be found in Haywards Heath (approximately 8 miles distant) along with a mainline station servicing Victoria/London Bridge (48 mins). Gatwick is approximately 25 miles distant via the M23 which also leads to the national motorway network. Public schools in the local area include Cumnor House and Great Walstead at preparatory level and Ardingly College, Worth Abbey, Hurstpierpoint College and Burgess Hill School for Girls at secondary level.


The property itself is approached via a gated driveway leading to an area which is ample for several vehicles. This also provides access to the range of outbuildings primarily centred around two yards. These outbuildings extend to 2626 sqft plus a pig sty. The buildings, some of which would benefit from an overhaul, include stables, tack room, open barns, calf shed, milking shed, feed store, cow barn and general stores.
