Nestled within a secluded plot of around two acres of beautiful grounds, is a Grade II Listed home with equestrian facilities and the option to lease a further adjoining six acres of pasture land, (subject to negotiation). Reference PAH062
A delightful Grade II Listed former lodge dating back to the early 19th century. It was previously an integral part of the neighbouring Ashfold Estate that was once owned by Lord Nelson; the woodland of the original house partly borders the property to one side.
The accommodation to the ground floor offers three comfortable reception rooms, an open plan kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, separate utility room and a laundry room with access to an attached double garage.
The first floor is accessed via two separate staircases and offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms to the left side and then two further bedrooms and another bathroom to the right.
The current owners have enjoyed living in the property for the past 27 years and comments what a 'special place' Tudor Lodge is. Our client comments further, 'Our children were 14 and 17 when we moved here so the layout of the accommodation worked really well for us as a more mature family. The grounds, the wildlife, the stables and the trees are what makes my home so special, not to mention the convenience of having two large market towns (Haywards Heath & Horsham) close by so I have the best of both worlds.
A feature of the property are the charming and lightly wooded gardens and grounds with a wide range of specimen mature trees and other shrubs and plants, with a private entrance drive that leads to the house, providing extensive parking. The attached double garage has both light and power. There is also a separate private entrance drive serving the stable yard including three useful boxes, tractor store and tack room with adjacent mud paddock.
AGENTS NOTE: -The current owners of the property have rented for several years a neighbouring block of land of approximately 6 acres and it may be possible for an incoming purchaser to approach the neighbouring estate owners to renew such an arrangement (subject to contract).
The property is conveniently located approximately midway between Handcross and Plummers Plain/Lower Beeding, located off the Horsham/Handcross Road/B2110 and providing very convenient access to the A23 linking to the M23 to Gatwick Airport (approximately11 miles) and the M25 to the North. The popular coastal city of Brighton is approximately 18 miles to the South and Handcross village offers a small range of local facilities and shops to the North-East.
To the South-West Cowfold village offers a similar range of facilities, whilst the old market town of Horsham (6 miles) accessed via the A281 Brighton Road offers an extensive range of shops, trades and general entertainment facilities and restaurants including mainline railway station with services to London Victoria. To the edge of Horsham, the A24 provides mainly dual carriageway connections to the South to the coastal town of Worthing and A27/M27 and, to the North, to Dorking and beyond to the M25.
