A unique opportunity to acquire this outstanding Grade II Listed country house and coach house, set in stunning gardens and grounds
Main House: This important Grade II Listed Sussex house has an interesting history with various castles and houses having stood on the site since the 13th century. The Henderson family transformed the neglected house and garden in the late 19th century into what is seen today.
Still privately owned, the current proprietors have also made their mark, with extensive renovation and redecorating. The West Wing remains an exciting project for the next owner.
Arranged over 3 floors, the house exudes Edwardian elegance and grace with refined formal south-facing reception rooms on the ground floor and 15 bedrooms on the upper floors. The house has been used occasionally for weddings, open days for the local community and also as a residential wellness centre at weekends, and would lend itself very well to a boutique hotel, retreat or similar, subject to the necesarry planning permissions.
The Coach House: Entrance hall | Sitting room | Dining room | Kitchen/breakfast room | Cloakroom | Utility | 4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms, one ensuite | Double open bay car port | 2 stores | Garden | EPC: E On the west side of the main house and garden is The Coach House, which has been converted into a spacious detached 4 bedroom home with its own garden. The house sits in approximately 1.61 acres of garden.
This property has 23.32 acres of land.
The gardens and grounds at Sedgwick Park House are simply stunning and were the brainchild of the mistress of the house, Mrs Emma Henderson, who enlisted the help of Harold Peto, during the family's tenure. Parkland, meadows and woodland surround the house, extending to approximately 21.71 acres. The formal gardens are worthy of special mention and include a south terrace, formal and informal lawns and a spectacular Italian-inspired garden featuring 20 interlinking ponds, an impressive ship themed water garden known a the White Sea. Within the grounds there is also a swimming pool and a turf labyrinth with superb views over the South Downs. An additional 34.59 acres is available by separate negotiation.
The property is situated in a beautiful rural location, about 3 miles from the historic market town of Horsham, with its comprehensive range of facilities including a John Lewis, The Carfax with its cobbled streets and vibrant Restaurant quarter. The A24 and A23/M23 provide easy access to London, Gatwick, Heathrow and the south coast. There are a number of excellent schools in the state and private sector including Handcross Park Preparatory School, Cottesmore, Farlington, Christs Hospital and Millais.
