The Property - West Knole House is an exceptional paring of original period features with contemporary style, which blend seamlessly to create a family home of immense charm, benefitting from every modern convenience. The present owners have upgraded and enhanced the house with the highest quality fixtures and fittings, with meticulous attention to detail, such as the beautifully appointed Siematic kitchen with its Quooker tap and built in Siemens appliances, and the Grant oil fired boiler,which provides domestic hot water and central heating throughout. The property has also been completely re-thatched in the last couple of years.
The accommodation is superbly presented and provides versatile family living with flagstone floors, exposed beams and fireplaces aplenty. The house extends to some 2170ft (GIA).

Straight on there is ample parking and the stable yard, and a little further the garage. The lawns extend around the house and contain mature shrub and flower borders, trees, a well, and an attractive patio seating area. A further walled lawn area offers stunning views to the Knole, from which the village name derives.
