The Little House is an impressive detached family home with extensive accommodation, set in a semi rural location, on the edge of the South Downs (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). The property displays stylish features, including exposed timber beams which, combined with the elegant contemporary décor creates a bright and airy home. The sizeable dual aspect drawing room has a beamed brick-built fireplace housing a wood-burning stove, creating a delightful focal point in the summer and later, perfect winter warmth. French doors open onto the terrace with views over the gardens beyond. Further versatile reception space is provided by a generous dining room with two sets of double doors linking to the drawing room and garden room. Bifold doors lead from the garden room to the rear gardens and the vaulted ceiling, along with the deep bay window allows for an abundance of natural light. A study and an office provide further adaptable reception space. The kitchen links to the garden room and is fitted with shaker-style units arranged around a generous central island with a breakfast bar. Upstairs accommodates four double bedrooms, including the principal bedroom suite which has a Juliet balcony, a dressing room and an en suite shower room. One of the bedrooms has an en suite shower room and an additional family bathroom and separate shower room complete the accommodation on this floor.


The property is approached via a driveway, providing plenty of parking space and access to the detached double garage block, a workshop and a gym with a shower room and balcony above. A further outbuilding houses the sauna and hot tub. Additional outbuildings are currently used as a workshop, a dog room and wood store. The south-facing gardens have paved terracing for entertaining, extensive level lawns, bordered and enclosed by mature trees, shrubs and flowerbeds.


The property is situated in a semi-rural location, approx. 2.4 miles from the thriving West Sussex village of Henfield, which offers an 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 and, for rail links, Hassocks provides a regular and direct mainline service to London Victoria (48 mins). There are a number of excellent schools in the area including Lancing College, Hurstpierpoint College, Brighton College, and Burgess Hill School for Girls, as well as St Peters CE Primary School in the village. Sporting and recreational facilities nearby include Henfield Health Centre and Sports and Leisure Centre, Wickwoods Country Club, golf at Singing Hills and Pyecombe, show jumping at Hickstead, horse racing at Brighton, Plumpton and Goodwood and sailing at Brighton and Chichester. The Downs Link and the South Downs, now a National Park, provide many miles of beautiful walks and bridle paths.


From Horsham head south on A281 towards Henfield/Brighton, passing through Henfield village to take the 2nd exit at the Shell garage onto the A2037/Barrow Hill, which becomes Shoreham Road. The property will be found on your left, shortly after the turning to Horn Lane.
