A stunning family home set in an elevated position in the sought-after village of Bolney. The main house has been sympathetically extended over the years, and is accessed via three electric gates, one to either end of the sweeping driveway and the other with access to the outbuildings and walled garden.

Beautifully presented by the current owners, the property has spacious accommodation over three floors. The kitchen/breakfast room has been hand built by Chalon, with custom made six-oven Aga, Miele appliances and beautiful oak flooring, flowing through into a substantial dining room. Both rooms have direct access onto the south facing wrap-around original Cathedral York stone terrace with Chilstone stone and glass balustrade. The oak panelled drawing room is south facing with open fireplace to one end and French doors onto the terrace. The charming sitting room has beautifully fitted joinery, providing book shelving.

To the first floor a master bedroom suite with beautiful views to the South Downs and a delightful balcony. There are a further five bedrooms on this floor, two of which are ensuite. The bathroom/shower rooms are a particular feature of the property and have all been individually designed and bespoke fitted by Catchpole & Rye and The Albion Bath Company, featuring custom cisterns and marble wash stands. To the second floor are three further bedrooms with bespoke shoe room and bathroom.

This property has 23 acres of land.


The custom designed swimming pool with stunning mosaic tiles, is surrounded to two sides by bifold doors which allow the pool to open to the large York stone sun terrace. The swimming pool has an advanced air system to control humidity, reinforced electric pool cover, and a beautifully fitted bar to one end. There is separate access to two individual changing rooms with showers and cloakrooms with Catchpole and Rye facilities.

The parkland gardens with sweeping views to the South Downs, mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with mature trees and shrubs, leads to ancient woodlands. To the west boundary is paddock land with access via Horsmanshoad or Buncton Lane. To the gardens is a beautiful walled garden, with well stocked beds and advanced irrigation system. To the northern wall are two bespoke greenhouses.

There is a secure chicken and wild fowl area with a large pond and silver birch trees.

To the front of the house there is an orchard with a range of mature fruit trees and natural pond. The hedge lined tennis court is well maintained and has a charming tennis pavilion.


The property is situated in a rural yet convenient location in the village of Bolney with its Award winning Bolney Wine Estate and vineyard cafe, local village hall with recreational ground and play area, St Mary Magdalene Church and two popular traditional public houses.
