The Grade II-listed former home of singing sensation Adele is up for grabs, but is it for someone like you?
Grammy, Oscar and Brit Award winning superstar Adele rented this sprawling 13-bedroom mansion in Partridge Green, West Sussex, between 2011 and 2012. The singer and songwriter is now chasing pavements elsewhere (she splits her time between London and Los Angeles) and the stunning home is up for sale.
Like Adele, you’ll need to be selling out stadiums around the globe if you want to put in an offer on this £7.25m home, which is being sold through Strutt & Parker.
What’s the home like?
The Grade II-listed Lock House was built around 1900 and was then extended and refurbished in the 1930s to include a ballroom and loggia. A Jacobean style carved staircase, marble fireplace and walnut panelling are among the period features still intact.
It’s been made fit for pop royalty with more recent renovations, including a leisure complex with an indoor swimming pool and a gym and games room.
With a total of 13 bedrooms, nine bathrooms and seven reception rooms, you’ll have no shortage of space for entertaining friends and family. There’s also staff accommodation and a guest cottage.
The outside space is equally as impressive, with grounds and gardens of around 85 acres - mostly comprising of sweeping lawns, open pasture and woodland.
You’ll also be able to keep active on the tennis court or take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool, and there’s also planning permission in place for a courtyard stable block if you want to add equestrian facilities.
The house itself sits at the end of a private tree-lined drive and has extensive parking space, but there’s also a helicopter hangar for a starlet looking to evade the paparazzi in style.
Where is it?
Lock House can be found in Partridge Green, Horsham, West Sussex, and offers wonderful uninterrupted views of the South Downs National Park.
What else is interesting about the area?
Partridge Green is a small village, but the house sits just 10 miles from the market town of Horsham, where trains can take you into London Victoria in 55 minutes.
Both Gatwick and Heathrow airports are easily accessible thanks to the A24 and A23, which also link to the M25. The South Downs National Park and High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural beauty are also on your doorstep.
