A handsome, double-fronted family home with flexible accommodation and delightful gardens, set in the sought after village of Barns Green.

Dating from 1904, Sillwood House is a detached family home which has been sympathetically updated by the current owners; blending the original character with modern amenities. The property offers versatile accommodation, and overlooks the village green.

To the ground floor, the sitting room and play room benefit from bay windows welcoming in plenty of natural light, and an open fireplace with stone surround in the sitting room. The dining room also features a fireplace with exposed brick surround and a cast iron coal “stove”; whilst the family room has French doors opening onto a raised terrace area. There is a utility room with plenty of storage, plus an additional shower room on the ground floor. At the heart of the home is the superb dual aspect kitchen/breakfast/family room with bespoke “Tom Howley of Guildford” fitted kitchen, central island, integrated appliances, range cooker, hot tap, stylish worktops and underfloor heating; bi-folding doors extend the space out into the rear garden.

On the first floor is the master suite with dressing room and en suite shower, guest bedroom with en suite shower and feature period fireplace, 3 further bedrooms and a family bathroom with white suite, including a free-standing roll top bath and separate shower.

Outside

Sillwood House is approached via a shingle driveway which leads to the integral garage, providing ample off-street parking. The rear garden is beautifully presented and mainly laid to lawn, with a large sweeping Indian sandstone paved terrace area on two levels, including an area covered by a glass roof; making it the perfect spot for outdoor entertaining. There is also a delightful pond, fed by the original well, a further paved seating area, pergolas providing shade, and mature trees and colourful flowerbeds.

Situation

The property is situated in the popular village of Barns Green with its local store, Public House and Sumners Pond with lakeside café. The historic market town of Horsham is about 4.5 miles distant and offers a comprehensive range of facilities including Swan Walk shopping centre, Waitrose and John Lewis at Home, Horsham Park and Pavilions Leisure Centre, a varied restaurant quarter and The Capitol – a multi-purpose arts venue. The nearby historic Christ’s Hospital School also has a Sports and Leisure Club with comprehensive sports facilities and pool, and is open to the public.

Horsham’s mainline service to London Victoria takes about 55 minutes, or the nearby station at Christ’s Hospital (about 3 miles distant) offers the same mainline services. There is also easy access to the M23 and wider motorway network.

The area boasts a number of excellent schools for all ages including Southwater Infant and Junior Academies, Castlewood Primary School, Christ’s Hospital, Millais Girls and Forest Boys Schools, Tanbridge School, Farlington and Seaford College.

Directions

From Horsham take the B2337/Worthing Road, turning right at The Boars Head pub onto Tower Hill, which becomes Two Mile Ash Road. Continue on this road for just over 3.5 miles then turn right onto Sandhills Road at the crossroads. The property will be found shortly thereafter on the right.
