A beautifully presented, 5-bedroom family home set in just under an acre of delightful gardens, in a peaceful semi-rural location.
Believed to date, in parts, from the 16th Century, and extended over the years, Sarsens is a beautifully presented family home offering versatile and flexible accommodation, combining the original charm and character with modern amenities including BT Superfast Fibre Broadband.
At the heart of the home is the superb dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room boasting a bespoke fitted kitchen with breakfast bar, electric Aga, oak worktops, Belfast sink, tiled splashbacks, engineered oak floor and anti-glare/heat-reduction glass to the full height picture window overlooking the garden. The adjoining family room has a log burner with brick surround, and sliding doors giving access to the garden.
Double doors open from the inner hall to the sitting room with brick built fireplace, wood burning stove, solid French oak floor and triple sliding doors giving access to the garden. The dual aspect master bedroom has fitted wardrobes, a contemporary styled en suite shower, exposed ceiling beams and double doors also providing access to the garden. There are four further bedrooms, a contemporary-styled family bathroom, useful laundry room (with space and plumbing for washing machine and dryer) and a study/playroom.
This property has 0.93 acres of land.
Approached via electric 5-bar gates, the shingle drive provides ample parking together with the integral double garage and detached barn-style double garage.
The delightful gardens, which surround the property, are divided into four different areas. The front garden being a cottage garden with brick paved path to the front door. To the rear, with views over surrounding fields and up to Chanctonbury Ring, are the south facing gardens. Immediately adjacent to the property is an attractive Indian sand stone terrace; perfect for outside entertaining and from which the lawn, interspersed with flower and shrub borders and mature specimen trees including Medlar fruit trees, extends to the post and rail boundary. A further area of lawn, with impressive oak tree, leads to the small orchard and vegetable garden complete with fruit cages containing raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, redcurrant and cherry, and raised vegetable garden.
Sarsens is set in wonderful countryside south of Horsham. The rural village of Shipley is nearby and offers a church, the Knepp Castle Polo Club and Shipley Windmill. Southwater, and its various amenities, is just under 5 miles away, with the larger village of Storrington about 5.5 miles distant providing a useful range of shops including a Waitrose supermarket.
Horsham is within easy reach and offers a more comprehensive range of shopping/recreational facilities including a theatre, cinema, various sports clubs and a mainline train station with services to London Victoria and London Bridge (about 51 minutes and 65 minutes respectively). The A24 provides easy access to the south coast and connections to A23/M23 and north to the M25 and national motorway network.
Sports enthusiasts can enjoy golf at West Sussex Golf Club, horse racing at Goodwood and Fontwell, show jumping at Hickstead, sailing at Chichester and miles of footpaths and bridle paths across the beautiful South Downs National Park. There are also excellent schools in the area including Christs Hospital, Millais, Farlington, Steyning Grammar, Cottesmore and Lancing College.
Leaving Horsham, take the B2237 and join the A24 at the Hop Oast Roundabout. Proceed on the A24 for about 5.5 miles before turning right onto the A272 at the large crossroads. At the next crossroads turn left onto Smithers Hill Lane and, at the fork in the road, turn right onto Countryman Lane, then right onto Saucelands Lane where the property will be found shortly thereafter on your left.
