Property description

Description
This estate is in a private road and extends to about 36 acres, which includes a 9 acre stocked carp lake. The main house is circa 17th century (not listed) and includes 8 bedrooms. Originally 2 Woodman's cottages, there is a wealth of exposed timbers throughout. With 4 staircases, the substantial house may form one large home, or could be suited to 2 families.

There are pretty, formal gardens and views towards the lake. The current owners obtained planning consent in June 2016 to demolish a detached bungalow in the grounds and replace this with an additional house of 5,000 sq ft house, again with views towards the lake.

The estate has been in the same ownership for over 40 years and this represents an unusual opportunity to purchase a house and plot in a magical setting.

Gardens and grounds
The outstanding grounds total 36.841 acres (14.909 hectares). There is a combination of formal gardens, paddocks, woodland, swimming pool and lake.

The front of the house has a formal manicured garden with intricate topiary and mature flowering shrubs. The south facing terrace makes for an ideal al fresco dining area with breathtaking views towards the lake. Beyond the turning area at the entrance to the house is a smaller pond, surrounded by rockery and heated outdoor swimming pool.

Outbuildings
Extensive outbuildings include a single garage attached to the house, together with a further garage of 684 , Dutch barn and a boat house situated on the edge of the lake.

Equestrian facilities include 7 stables and outdoor riding school. Furthermore, on the edge of the drive is a self contained 3 bedroom bungalow/annexe with kitchen, bathroom and lounge.

Planning consent
The property comes with the benefit of planning permission for a 5 bedroom contemporary house within the grounds. Granted by Mid Sussex Planning, the reference is: Dm/16/1597, under the stipulation of the demolition of the bungalow and other outbuildings. Plans can be viewed on the Mid Sussex council website.

Location
This compact country estate is positioned on a private estate in Felbridge. The property is approached through wrought iron gates, along a winding driveway through the grounds. The main house occupies a commanding position with outstanding views over the lake.

The property benefits from the tranquility of a secluded woodland position, yet has access to excellent commuter links via East Grinstead and Three Bridges railway stations. Access to the M23 motorway is available at Copthorne and Gatwick airport, which connect with the M25 London orbital motorway. There are local shops at Felbridge and Crawley Down, both villages are about 2 miles away. The established town of East Grinstead is 3.5 miles away and offers a wider range of facilities, including Waitrose, cinema, community theatre, and a good choice of schools in both the state and independent sector.
