Wanford Mill is a delightful former water mill listed as being of 16th century origin with attractive part weather boarded red brick elevations. It is understood that the property was a working mill until shortly before the Second World War and was then converted to a private dwelling of considerable character, charm and comfort. All rooms have splendid views over the mill pond, the river, and open pastureland beyond. The accommodation is well-proportioned and with good ceiling heights. Many of the original features have been retained with exposed timbers and parts of the original workings of the mill.
On the ground floor there is a spacious entrance hall, a triple aspect sitting room with a log-burning stove in the open fireplace, a dining room, a fitted kitchen/ breakfast room with a mains gas fired Aga, a separate
utility room, and a guest cloakroom/wc. Upstairs on the first floor there are 4 bedrooms including the triple aspect main bedroom with an ensuite shower room, and there is a family bathroom. Up again and on the second floor, there are 2 further bedrooms, another bathroom, and a study. Within the grounds, there is a detached period barn which provides excellent self-contained ancillary accommodation.
Planning permission exists for this to be replaced with a more contemporary barn (Horsham District Council reference: DC/23/1414). There is also planning permission to replace the existing stable block with a new detached home office combined with garden storage and workshop (Horsham District Council reference: DC/21/2421).


From the lane, access is via a long private drive, passing Wanford House and through double five bar gates to an extensive parking area to the front of the mill where there is also a double garage. The magical setting lies adjacent to the tranquil mill pond and is bordered to the north by the River Arun. A secluded garden lies to the south with areas of lawn, well stocked herbaceous beds and a variety of established flowering shrubs and fruit trees. There is a greenhouse and fruit cage, together with the timber stables/garden store comprising 2 stables and a tack room, and as an alternative, planning permission has been granted to replace with a home office combined with garden storage and workshop.
Adjoining the mill house itself there is a brick terrace which provides a delightful outdoor entertaining area overlooking the river and meadow land beyond. The mill race extends under the Mill House and opens into a large mill pond and then into the leat beyond. The area between the mill pond and the river is much like an island, with a large area of lawn inset with many fine mature trees and leading to an open area of pasture. In all the garden and grounds extend to about 2.4 acres.


The property is situated in a beautiful rural setting on the edge of the hamlet of Bucks Green and less than a mile to the south of the village of Rudgwick where there is a shop, village pub, church, and doctor and dentist surgeries. The larger villages of Cranleigh and Billingshurst are each within 5 miles and provide wider facilities and the larger centres of Horsham and Guildford are 7 and 14 miles away respectively. From Horsham there is a mainline rail service to London Victoria taking from 52 minutes, and from Guildford, regular trains to London Waterloo take from 37 minutes. There are highly rated school choices nearby including Pennthorpe, Farlington, Cranleigh School, St. Catherines, as well as The Royal Grammar and The High School in Guildford, and Charterhouse and Godalming Sixth Form College in Godalming. The area is well served with excellent sporting and recreational facilities including golf at The West Sussex, The West Surrey, Slinfold, Cranleigh and Rookwood, as well as racing, golf and motor racing at Goodwood, and polo at Cowdray. The property is set amidst a beautiful rural landscape a short distance from the the Surrey/Sussex border. Close by there is access to many miles of footpaths and bridleways from where enthusiastic walkers, runners and riders can explore some of these counties most scenic and protected countryside.
