Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A good sized detached family house situated in secluded south facing gardens with railed paddocks, stables and garaging - In all about 4.65 acres.
Constructed in the 1930's the property has been in the same ownership since the mid 1970's, it was extended in the late 1980's on two floors to the rear creating, what is today, 5 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms and generous living accommodation, perhaps 2750 sqft (255sqm) overall. The house is constructed in a cavity colour washed brick with some vertical tile hanging to upper elevations and over bays. The roof is clay tiled and has potential to create further living space if required, subject to consent.
Outside the stable block is set at right angles to provide a yard style area that could be sectioned off with the detached double garage set just back from the house to one side of the wide parking and turning area. The formal gardens have been a passion of the owners in previous years and comprises a well maintained lawn with several borders containing a variety of flowering shrubs, a greenhouse and mature ornamental trees including Weeping Willow, and Horse Chestnut.
The property is protected on its Northern boundary by a shelter belt of mature trees, predominantly Oak, which continues along the verge into a denser area of copse including a pond and a small spinney paddock with field shelter. A recessed secondary entrance from the road, in one corner of the holding, leads through a 5 bar gate to an area of grazing which is separated into 3 paddocks by post and rail, each with its own galvanised gated entrance.
The land is bordered by ditches and mature oak trees on the three sides.
Internally the house is well presented in a neutral colour palette with double glazed windows, sliding double glazed patio doors and full mains gas central heating to radiators. The bathrooms are both white suites with a family bathroom and ensuite shower room to the master bedroom. On the ground floor the extended main living room is treble aspect with delightful views of the gardens and benefits from an open fireplace. The dining room lies adjacent (also with a chimney breast though not open), is of good size and is double aspect with access through to the conservatory which links back through to the living room. The kitchen breakfast room has space for a table and benefits from a walk-in larder. A rear porch completes the ground floor, making a useful boot and coat storage area. The first floor bedrooms are ALL DOUBLES and enjoy glorious outlooks across the surrounding fields.
The property is for sale with full vacant possession on completion. No chain. NB: In compliance with the Estate Agents Act of 1979 it is declared that a member of the Marcus Grimes staff has a financial interest in the property. Agents note: A pair of underground cables were laid on the southern and eastern boundaries of the grassland field in 2017/2018 as part of the Rampion Project undertaken on behalf of the E.ON Group (Renewables), an off-shore wind farm development. A right and obligation on E.ON to repair and maintain this installation continues through a separate 99 year lease. Further details on request.

The land surrounding the property is similar in style and use, in that it comprises open fields with farmhouses and equestrian grazing and husbandry. Access to public bridleways for equestrian users is via Wineham Lane just 120 metres along the road. The property falls within the parish of Woodmancote but its postal address is that of Henfield, a bustling and expanding village about 2.5 miles to the west. The nearby Wheatsheaf pub restaurant is just 150 metres away along the
lane with a reputation for good food and local hand drawn ales. The location is also on the bus route for local schools and nearby towns. (bus stop by Wheatsheaf Pub). Henfield mentioned earlier, is a large village community offering everything day to day with medical centre, primary
school, beautiful church, leisure centre and a number of pubs, cafes, a post office and a village hall. Shops include a Budgens supermarket, fruiterers, hardware, health and beauty, antiques and gift, opticians, veterinary, bakery and chemist. There are also a number of specialist retailers and offices. Henfield lies almost equidistant between the larger shopping centres of Burgess Hill and Horsham, both offering fast regular mainline rail services into London Bridge and Victoria. Brighton and the coast is about 20 mins by car with the stunning escarpments of the South Downs, literally on the southern edge of the village. Gatwick International airport is about 25 minutes as is the M25 London orbital motorway. Nearby local equestrian centres include the world famous Hickstead All England ground, Brendans at Pyecombe and Combelands event course at Pulborough. Renowned local golf courses can be found close by at Singing Hills in Albourne and the downland courses of The Dyke and Pyecombe.
