DESCRIPTION Approached through electric gates along a winding driveway, a simply stunning five bedroom family home set over three floors and situated within a combination of private gardens and further large communal grounds. The property was originally built 1912 as Herontye House in a Jacobean style and was converted in 2000 in to the impressive Herontye Hall. The property was the home of Lord Glendyne and his family and was built with mellow Horsham stone elevation and roof. The private gardens extend to about an acre and the communal grounds are about 7 acres. 

The front door opens into a spacious entrance hallway with stone flooring and oak panelled walls which are evident throughout the property. The principal drawing room boasts a stone fireplace which acts as the perfect focal point for the room, and views over the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room benefits from a matching range of wall and base units with granite worktops, breakfast bar island, six ring "Smeg" range style cooker, integrated dishwasher, twin bowl ceramic sink with mixer tap, space for american style fridge freezer. The dining room is ideally located to the side and also has an open stone fire. A study and cloakroom/utility room complete the ground floor accommodation. The first floor bedrooms are accessed by a beautiful galleried landing with oak staircase and feature full height leaded light windows to the front enjoying views over the gardens. The double aspect principal bedroom suite features a stone fireplace, extensive fitted wardrobes and an ensuite boasting 'his and hers' sinks and a separate bath and shower. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor. On the second floor there are another two bedrooms and an additional bathroom.  

GARDENS The private gardens are laid mainly to lawn and are surrounded on the perimeter by large mature trees to keep the privacy. There is a large ornamental pond with fountain, space for off road parking, and access on to the larger communal gardens which extend, we believe, to around 7 acres and incorporate areas of well tended lawns and mature trees.
