Wykehurst Park is a very substantial Victorian country house estate of grand style and proportions, and notable within the county. It was designed by Edward M Barry for Henry Huth, an Austrian banker. Barry was an eminent Victorian architect whose commissions included The Royal Opera House at Covent Garden and who on the death of his father, Sir Charles Barry, completed the Houses of Parliament. The Coach House and Stables were converted by a previous owner and is now a superb family house with wonderfully flexible, innovative accommodation for modern family life. This includes the 33' x 23' games room (formerly the coach house itself) with a superb high ceiling, its own shower room, and an outlook to the courtyard. Also on the ground floor are the study, cloakroom, utility room, store, drawing room and the dramatic kitchen breakfast room, with double height areas looking up past the mezzanine floors above to the roof. The bedrooms are all very good double rooms, with the master bedroom having both dressing area and ensuite bathroom; it also features a delightful 'Juliet' balconywith views over the gardens and parkland beyond, and there are then a further four bedrooms and a further 2 bathrooms.
The Coach House and Stables is ideally located for purchasers seeking a rural location yet within easy reach of excellent facilities and communications. Wykehurst Park is situated in an outstanding rural position, amidst the beautiful Sussex countryside between the villages of Warninglid, Cowfold and Bolney. The larger centres of Horsham and Haywards Heath provide comprehensive facilities. From Haywards Heath, there are frequent main line rail services to London (Victoria/London Bridge) from about 44 minutes. The A23 provides access to Gatwick Airport, the M23/M25 and the national motorway network. There is excellent schooling nearby including Handcross Park, Worth, Hurstpierpoint College and Burgess Hill. Sporting and recreational facilities are numerous including golf at Mannings Heath, Cottesmore and Haywards Heath, show jumping at Hickstead, and racing at Plumpton and Brighton.
The property is approached over a cobbled courtyard formed by the house itself, a large detached garage with store above and a further detached outbuilding. The courtyard is further enclosed by attractive stone walls, and secure gates, and there is a notable clock tower on the roof. To the rear the garden is laid to lawn with a paved terrace adjacent to the house. Mature trees provide privacy and this part of the garden is enclosed by a post & rail fence. There is then a further parcel of land beyond. In total there is about 0.92 of an acre (0.37 ha).
