A handsome, detached 6-bedroom family home with delightful gardens and grounds, in a secluded yet convenient “tucked away” location.

Believed to date from the 1920s, and improved and extended over the years, Paddock House is a handsome family home.

The spacious and welcoming reception hall has solid wood floors, a wood burning stove, study area and attractive turned staircase leading to the 1st floor. The dual aspect sitting room boasts a Bath stone open fireplace and French doors opening to the south-facing garden. There is also a formal dining room with bay window overlooking the gardens. At the heart of the home is the kitchen/breakfast/family room with fully fitted, solid wood kitchen, breakfast bar, Walnut worktops, Aga Range cooker, terracotta tiled floor which extends through to the utility, walk-in larder and cloakroom; and French doors opening to the garden.

On the first floor, the dual aspect master bedroom has built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower. There are four further bedrooms (two with built-in wardrobes) and a family bathroom with white suite and free standing bath; as well as a family shower room. The loft space has been converted to provide an additional double bedroom, with door to a useful loft storage area.

This property has 2.38 acres of land.

Outside

The property is approached via a long private driveway to the front, with a brick paved drive providing ample parking.

The property sits well within the plot and is enclosed by mature hedging, giving a high degree of privacy and seclusion. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn, with mature specimen trees including an impressive Oak and a beautiful Magnolia, as well as wild flowers, including bluebells and daffodils. The “formal” garden area is enclosed by low-level Beech hedging and has deer-proof fencing. A paved terrace adjacent to the rear of the property provides the perfect location for enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings.

There is also a substantial outbuilding – the barn – which offers potential for an annexe or ancillary accommodation, subject to the usual consents.

Situation

The property sits in a convenient, semi-rural location on the outskirts of Horsham. This historic, thriving market town offers a comprehensive range of facilities including a John Lewis at Home, Waitrose, Swan Walk shopping centre, a varied restaurant quarter, Horsham Park and Pavilions Leisure Centre, Horsham Sports Club, an Everyman Cinema and The Capitol – a multi-purpose arts venue. Horsham also has a mainline station with links to London Victoria/London Bridge (about 56 and 55 minutes respectively).

The A24, M23 and wider motorway network are easily accessible providing access to London, Gatwick and the south coast. There are also a number of excellent schools in the area including Christ’s Hospital, Millais Girls and Forest Boys Schools, Farlington Girls School, Pennthorpe and Cottesmore.

Directions

From the centre of Horsham, head south on the B2237 (which becomes Worthing Road). Turn right onto Salisbury Rd, just after The Boars Head and turning to Tower Hill, and the drive to the property will be found on your left shortly thereafter.
