A superb Grade II Listed family home with stunning landscaped gardens and views to the South Downs, on the edge of the sought after village of Henfield.
Believed to date from the 17th century, and sympathetically extended by the current owners, Old Mill House is a superb Grade II Listed family home, beautifully combining the original charm and character with modern amenities. Original period features include stain glass windows, Sussex wood latch doors, exposed ceiling beams, Horsham stone roof and an impressive inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove in the spacious drawing room.
From the welcoming entrance hall with parquet flooring, there is a natural flow to the accommodation. At the heart of the home is the kitchen/breakfast room boasting part vaulted ceiling, attractive stone tiled flooring, Aga, double electric oven with Neff induction hob and combination oven, bespoke solid oak fitted units and stylish granite worktops. On the first floor, the master bedroom suite is dual aspect with vaulted ceiling, spacious dressing room and modern en suite bathroom with separate shower. Three further bedrooms and the family bathroom complete the first floor.
This property has 1.3 acres of land.
The property is approached via double wooden electric gates to the drive which, together with the double garage and gravel area, provides ample parking. A further wooden electric gate provides pedestrian access to the property.
The stunning landscaped gardens surround the property on three sides, dropping down to a beautiful natural fed pond complete with floating duck house, and a formal/croquet lawn. The chalet and summerhouse both feature decked verandas, which extend out and over the gardens providing the perfect locations for entertaining or simply enjoying the beautiful, peaceful surroundings and views to the South Downs.
The property is located in the thriving West Sussex village of Henfield with its assortment of local independent shops together with a supermarket, public houses and restaurants. For a more comprehensive range of amenities Brighton and Horsham are both within easy access by road. For rail links, Burgess Hill and Hassocks both provide a regular mainline service to London Victoria (about 53 mins) and London Bridge (about 55 mins). Alternatively, Haywards Heath is about 13 miles away providing a frequent service to London Victoria and London Bridge in approximately 45 minutes.
There are a number of excellent schools in the area, including Hurstpierpoint College, Brighton College, Burgess Hill School for Girls and Handcross Park Preparatory School.
