Located down a private road leading to a local farm, Moat Barn is a stunning conversion that has made it to the open market for the first time since its completion in 2001.

Nestled in Horsham’s district, Moat Barn is surrounded by agricultural farmland and buildings, ancient woodlands, public footpaths and open fields. It has a real country feel yet is on the doorstep of two of the largest towns in West Sussex and Gatwick Airport, providing easy access to shops and amenities as well as excellent communication links.

The layout has been well designed to maximise the space with over 2580 square feet on offer, that’s not including the internal floor space of the outside open sided barn or store area.

The grand entrance hall, has a two storey vaulted ceiling with mezzanine staircase giving an instant assurance this is a very unique, exciting property. With a glazed front wall and slate tiled floor this dynamic, large space creates an impressive entrance as well as reception area.

The impressive dining room leads to the fourth reception/bedroom (currently used as a large study), a spacious WC and the kitchen breakfast room which in turn leads through to a utility/boot room with external door. The spacious lounge has high ceilings and French doors leading to the large, south facing veranda. Also on the ground floor is the property's master suite with its own lobby, high beamed ceilings and en suite shower room.

A half landing, mezzanine stairs takes you too the impressive bridge that spans the reception hall between bedrooms two and three.

Outside the gardens are beautiful and well stocked with a large variety of exotic evergreens, perennials, trees and shrubs.There are many different areas to enjoy which is important when a garden is south facing as you’ll certainly need areas of shade on hot days.

The most prominent features are the large veranda, the circular lawn, a large patio and the Norman moat. There’s also a hidden vegetable & fruit garden and a hidden seating area.

A recently constructed, open sided oak barn. Spanning approximately 350 square feet currently offers al fresco dining under mood lighting regardless of the weather. At one end of the barn, tucked away is a 11’6 x 10’8 enclosed store room and both areas have power and light.

The Norman moat is not part of the property but it can be admired for the wildlife it encourages and is listed with English Heritage.

An electric gate with key fob access is how you enter the properties gravel driveway, this can easily accommodate parking for five to six cars (many more if parked in tandem).

There is also lapsed planning for a detached double garage which one believes would be quite straightforward to re-invoke although subject to the local authorities’ processes and fees.
