A characterful rural residence with equestrian facilities, set in 8.9 acres.

With elevations of black weatherboarding and attractive stonework, Godleys Barn is a handsome country house offering extensive, versatile accommodation with interiors showcasing vaulted ceilings and the impressive timber framework. Rustic beams and post now align alongside newer timbers and the immaculate presentation provides an appealing home ideally suited to modern family lifestyles. The reception room is zoned to offer a relaxed sitting area beside the gas fire and a dining space, with the double height glazed aperture filling the room with light and French doors providing a connection to the garden. The convivial heart of the home is offered by a charming kitchen/dining room which has a subtle division linking to a relaxed family room, where a wall of glass and doors affords a seamless transition to the terrace. Fitted with sleek timber cabinetry, topped with stone work surfaces, the kitchen is supported by a separate utility room. The bedroom accommodation is arranged over the lower level and two upper levels, with one of the bedrooms offering a secluded retreat, with adjoining dressing area and bathroom, on the first floor above the drawing room. In the westerly wing of the ground floor, the principal room has a smart en suite bathroom and French doors to the garden. This side of the home also offers a further bedroom with adjacent wellappointed family bathroom, with two additional bedrooms on the floor above where skylight windows allow natural light to flood inside. Supplemental accommodation is available in the barn annexe which has a cloakroom facility and kitchenette and a covered outside setting. Evergreen hedging forms a boundary to the side of the plot, with a timber five-bar gate marking the entry point onto an expanse of gravelled courtyard with a centre-point planted feature. The double garage sits at the edge of the courtyard, alongside the stable block, whilst a further gate offers access into the adjoining paddock. The garden around the property has been beautifully landscaped to provide sinuous planted beds; geometric raised planters; paved, gravelled and decked terraces to enjoy the various aspects and, with post-and-rail fencing, there is an open outlook over the fields. An enclosed pond with waterfall feature and pretty aquatic planting offers a magnet to birds and insects, with a majestic willow tree creating dappled shade alongside. In all the grounds extend to 8.9 acres.


The charming village of Rudgwick is nestled on the fringe of the Sussex Weald, on the banks of the upper reaches of the River Adur, surrounded by picturesque countryside. The village offers an excellent range of amenities including local shops, a public house, medical and dental surgeries, with the Firebird microbrewery and Milk Churn coffee shop also being noteworthy. The villages of Cranleigh and Billinghurst both provide shopping and leisure facilities, while Horsham offers an eclectic range of high street and independent shops, coffee shops and restaurants, including a John Lewis store. Well-regarded schooling in the vicinity includes Pennthorpe, Farlington, Cranleigh, Duke of Kent, St Catherine’s and Charterhouse School.


From the A24, just to the west of Horsham, take the exit to join the A264. At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto the A281 sign-posted to Guildford. Follow the road for approximately 4.4 miles when the access lane to reach the property will be found on the right.
