A beautifully presented, substantial wing of a Grade II Listed country house, enjoying far reaching views, in a convenient semi-rural location.
Believed to date in part from the 17th Century, and extended over the years, West Hyes comprises the major portion of a handsome Grade II listed former country house. Occupying an elevated position, the property enjoys superb far reaching views. Period features of note include; oak panelling, beamed ceilings, picture rails, architraving and cornicing, wood panel doors and Horsham stone roof.
The three spacious reception rooms include; drawing room, with wooden floorboards and attractive fireplace with wood burning stove; dual aspect sitting/dining room with marble fireplace, wood burning stove and access to the garden; games room with Parquet flooring and high ceiling. The kitchen/breakfast room boasts a bespoke fitted kitchen, integrated appliances, granite worktops and slate flooring.
A turned, oak staircase leads to the first floor, with galleried landing providing a reading/library area. The master bedroom has built-in wardrobes and features a decorative barrelled ceiling. The contemporary styled family bathroom and shower room both have plantation shutters. There are five further bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes.
This property has 0.73 acres of land.
Approached by a long, tree lined drive, to a partially enclosed entrance forecourt, providing parking in addition to the barn style garage. A wrought iron gate opens to an attractive walled courtyard garden with flagstone paving.
Enclosed by yew hedging, the gardens to the south are mainly laid to lawn, interspersed with flower and shrub borders and mature specimen trees; including an impressive oak.
A flagstone terrace, adjacent to the southern elevation, provides the perfect location for outside entertaining or simply relaxing and enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings.
West Hyes is conveniently located, about 2 miles to the east of the village of Rudgwick, close to the Surrey/West Sussex border. The village provides local facilities including a variety of shops, church and public houses, whilst the larger centres of Cranleigh, Horsham and Guildford provide more comprehensive facilities and main line railway services to London (Horsham/Victoria and Guildford/Waterloo).
There are excellent sporting and recreational facilities in the area, as well as schools for all age groups, including Pennthorpe, Farlington, Cranleigh and Christs Hospital. The surrounding countryside provides many miles of beautiful walks and rides including the Downs Link with access to public bridleways and footpaths close to the property.
From Horsham proceed west towards Guildford on the A281 for about 5 miles. At the roundabout with the junction signposted left A29 Bognor, proceed straight over and the pillared entrance gates leading to Hyes are on the right hand side after about 1 mile. Proceed up the drive and West Hyes will be seen immediately ahead at the top of the drive.
