The Old Barn was substantially reconstructed in the late 1980's incorporating many of the materials from the former building which is believed to date from the 16th century. In recent years the property has been extended to include a stunning vaulted family room which opens from the kitchen. Throughout there is a wealth of period features including some fine exposed timbers and much of the joinery is in oak.
The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors with all principal rooms enjoying beautiful views over the gardens and grounds. On the ground floor the entrance door opens from the forecourt into the reception hall/sitting room with flagstone flooring and an inglenook fireplace with a fitted woodburner. The kitchen is exceptionally well fitted with an extensive range of units with granite work surfaces, central island and built in appliances including a 4 oven Aga. The kitchen opens to the vaulted family room creating a superb informal family/entertaining area. There is a ground floor suite with an adjoining dressing room ideal for guests or a relative.
An oak staircase rises to the triple aspect drawing room which has a vaulted ceiling, oak flooring and an open fire. Also on the first floor is the principal bedroom suite. Above is the galleried study and 5th bedroom. Throughout, the property is well appointed and provides spacious and versatile accommodation.
The Old Barn is situated in a beautiful rural location, close to the Surrey/West Sussex border and about 4 miles to the north west of Horsham town centre which provides a comprehensive selection of shops, restaurants and leisure/recreational facilities. The nearby village of Warnham, noted for its charming period properties offers good local facilities including the village stores, butcher, 2 village inns, church and a variety of social and sport clubs.
There is an excellent selection of schools in the area including the Warnham primary school, Christ's Hospital School, Farlington and Cranleigh. Recreational facilities in the area include golf at Slinfold, Rookwood Park, Horsham Golf and Fitness Club and Gatton Manor; show jumping at Hickstead, polo at Cowdray Park and over the surrounding countryside there are many miles of beautiful walks and rides. The property is ideally situated for a purchaser requiring a rural setting yet within easy reach of excellent facilities and communications.
From the lane a long private drive passes between the property's open fields and terminates in a large forecourt adjoining the front entrance. The first part of the drive is shared with the neighbouring farmhouse as shown on the enclosed land plan. A detached barn style outbuilding with tall double entrance doors provides garaging for four vehicles with a workshop facility to one side. Above the garage and with an external staircase is a 25 foot studio/games room with a cloakroom.
Adjoining the house are extensive stone terraces from which broad steps lead down to the sweeping lawns, inset and bordered by a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs. Set to one side is a large pond with aquatic plants including lilies and bulrushes. The gardens create a parkland setting and extending to both the west and to the south beyond the entrance drive are areas of pasture.
Known as Warnham Vale Vineyard the well tended and productive vines extend over 2 acres and comprise 3 varieties; Schonburger, Reichensteiner and Seyval Blanc. The present owners, helped by friends and family, enjoy harvesting the grapes which are then collected and the wine produced and bottled by a separate company.
In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 12.5 acres.
