Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Woodmancote Place is a rare opportunity to purchase a magnificent country house in a most private and peaceful setting.

Situated on the edge of the South Downs National Park with land totaling 149 acres, this beautiful estate offers exceptionally presented accommodation, outbuildings and equestrian facilities whilst also being in a highly convenient location with the A23(M23) offering exceptionally quick access to London. The house has been fully restored and sympathetically decorated by the current owners.

The property is Grade II listed and featured in the Domesday Book. It sits at the head of a long drive and is positioned centrally within its land with a glorious outlook over a series of lakes. The house has seven impressive reception rooms, 9 bedrooms, seven bathrooms and in addition there is a two bedroom Gardener's Cottage and two bedroom Housekeeper's Cottage.

The majority of the outbuildings have been meticulously restored by the current owners - many of which form a courtyard adjacent to the extensive equestrian facilities - extending to just over 10,000 square feet.

The gardens and grounds are undoubtedly a key feature of Woodmancote Place and extend in all to about 149 acres. There are a beautiful series of lakes to the north of the house, a walled kitchen garden, outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and extensive equestrian facilities including ten stables, tack room and manege. A mixture of well-maintained fields, parkland and woodland, the land undulates and is attractive throughout. There are wonderful woodland walks and riding and a lovely view from the eastern fields.

Henfield village, approximately one mile to the north west provides good local amenities whilst Brighton, Haywards Heath, Horsham and Lewes are all within striking distance for more extensive shopping, schooling and entertainment.

Communications by road are excellent, with the A23 within easy reach, providing access to the south coast, Gatwick airport (about 22 miles) and the M25. Rail services to London are available from Haywards Heath and Hassocks, about 44 and 51 miles respectively.

The area provides an excellent selection of state and private schools, notably Steyning Grammar, Lancing College, Brighton College and Hurstpierpoint. There are numerous sporting and recreational facilities in the area including excellent tennis, spa and fitness facilities at the nearby Wickwoods private country club, golf at West Sussex Golf Club, racing at Fontwell, Brighton, Plumpton and Goodwood, sailing from Chichester Harbour and polo at Cowdray Park. The riding and walking are superb with direct access to the bridleway network linking to the South Downs.
