A beautifully presented, 5-bedroom, detached family home with delightful landscaped gardens and separate paddock.

Built in 1924, and extended over the years, St Brigets Cottage is a beautifully presented “Arts & Crafts” family home, with exposed beams, wood latch internal doors, feature fireplaces, and views over open countryside to the front.

The superb Lutyens-inspired reception hall, designed by the architect Michael Edwards, boasts a vaulted glazed roof, solid oak beams and columns, and underfloor heating beneath stone tiled floor which extends through to the kitchen and breakfast room. The kitchen has bespoke, solid oak units with integrated appliances, stylish granite worktops and a Range cooker. There are three reception rooms, with the drawing room having an impressive Portland stone fireplace with working fire, solid wood flooring and French doors to the garden. The sitting room is dual aspect with exposed ceiling beams and a brick fireplace, and the triple aspect dining room has an attractive Parquet flooring and access to the garden.

The first floor is accessed by two staircases, the original turned staircase at the front and another, later addition, to the rear. There are five bedrooms in total – a spacious master bedroom with a range of built-in wardrobes and four further bedrooms; two with dual aspect and two with built-in wardrobes. The two family bathrooms both have white suites, part-tiled walls and wooden floors.

This property has 2.16 acres of land.

Outside

The property is approached via a tarmacadam drive which, along with the two garages, provides ample parking. There is also a pedestrian path to the original entrance porch and front stable door.

The property sits well within its plot and is enclosed by mature hedging and attractive stone boundary walls. The landscaped gardens are delightful, being mainly laid to lawn with mature specimen trees, and flower and shrub borders. Paved terraces provide the perfect location for outside entertaining and a vegetable and fruit garden, with small orchard area, lies to the right of the property. The paddock, at the rear, is enclosed by post and rail fence, and mature hedging and has separate access via a 5-bar gate from Hayes Lane, as well as from the garden.

Situation

The property is situated on the outskirts of Slinfold with its shop, church, public house, sports clubs, and primary and pre-school. The market town of Horsham is close by and offers a comprehensive range of facilities including John Lewis at Home/Waitrose, Swan Walk shopping centre, varied restaurant quarter, The Capitol – a multi-purpose arts venue, and a mainline railway service to London Victoria and London Bridge (in approximately 60 minutes). There are also a number of excellent schools nearby including Cottesmore, Pennthorpe, Farlington, Christ’s Hospital, Cranleigh and Millais.

Recreational and sporting facilities nearby include Slinfold Golf & Country Club and Horsham Sports Club, as well as walking and hiking in the surrounding countryside.
