Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Believed to be one of the oldest houses in Mannings Heath, dating back in parts to the 1500s, Woolmers was owned by the same family until 1925, and has had only two further owners since. The current owner has sympathetically renovated and improved the property and grounds.

Period features include wood latch doors, two Inglenook fireplaces, exposed beams, stone slab floor to the reception hall and cloakroom, and an original 1920s servants bell system which is still in working order. The triple aspect drawing room has French doors opening onto a paved terrace, complete with wisteria adorned pergola, and the spacious conservatory is accessed from the dining and drawing room with two sets of French doors leading to the garden. Completing the ground floor is the double aspect kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility, a useful boot room and cloakroom.

On the first floor, the dual aspect master bedroom has a walk-through dressing room and en suite bathroom, with original 1920s cast iron bath. There are also three further bedrooms (one with built-in wardrobes and en suite bathroom) and a family bathroom, with four useful loft rooms on the second floor.

The 2-bedroom annexe, dating back to the 1500s, was completely renovated in 2017 and now provides excellent secondary accommodation.

The property is situated on the outskirts of the village of Mannings Heath, just over 2 miles from the Horsham with its mainline station (London Bridge/London Victoria about 55 and 56 minutes respectively) and range of facilities including Swan Walk shopping centre, Waitrose and John Lewis at Home, a range of restaurants and pubs, and The Capitol - a multi-purpose arts venue. South Lodge Hotel is also just a short distance away with its 3 AA rosette award-winning restaurant, The Pass.

The A24, A23 and M23 provide easy access to London, Gatwick and the south coast. There are also a number of excellent schools in and around the area, including Handcross Park Preparatory School, Cottesmore, Farlington Girls School, Christ’s Hospital, Pennthorpe, and Millais Girls and Forest Boys Schools.

The property is approached via an electric 5-bar gate to a sweeping drive. The gardens have been beautifully landscaped to provide year-round colour with over 1500 trees planted and the addition of two ponds. The “formal” gardens have been protected by deer proof fencing and there are two paddocks to the south of the plot and a wooded area, boasting bluebells in the Spring, to the east.

The indoor swimming pool complex with snooker/games room, floodlit tennis court and well-maintained stable block, complete the recreational lifestyle.
