A detached, Grade II listed character property with 5/6 bedrooms, set in a semi-rural yet convenient location with views over open fields.
Believed to date, in parts, from the 16th century, Brook House has been sympathetically modernised to combine the benefits of modern amenities with the retained period features.
Features of note include exposed timbers and beams, parquet and wooden flooring, wood panel doors and vintage style radiators. The sitting/dining room has a wood burning stove and French doors giving access to the garden, whilst the family room boasts an impressive Inglenook fireplace. The bespoke fully fitted kitchen, with granite work tops, butler sink and integrated appliances, has the same attractive flooring as the inner hall and cloakroom. A cloakroom and useful study (or 6th bedroom) completes the ground floor accommodation.
From the inner hall, with a side door onto the drive, a painted wooden staircase leads to the first floor. The dual aspect master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, impressive wide wooden varnished floorboards and feature period fireplace. The guest bedroom has an en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms, and a traditional styled family bathroom with free standing roll-top bath.
This property has 1.46 acres of land.
The property is approached via a 5-bar gate to the gravel drive, which provides ample parking. A paved path to the right of the drive leads around to the front door and garden beyond. To the rear of the drive, a wrought iron gate provides an alternative access point to the garden and, immediately adjacent to the rear of the property, is a spacious, attractive, paved terrace providing the perfect location for outside entertaining.
Steps lead up to the garden, which is enclosed by mature hedging and post and rail fencing, and is mainly laid to lawn. There is also a summer house, a useful garden shed with light and a small brick outbuilding which also has power. At the end of the garden is a 5-bar gate providing access to the propertys natural wooded area complete with stream.
The property is situated in a semi-rural position, close to the village of Faygate with its public house and mainline train station. The historical market town of Horsham, about 3.5 miles away, offers a more extensive range of shopping and recreational facilities as well as a mainline train station to London.
The area is well-connected with the A264 providing fast access to the M23 and Gatwick Airport (with the Gatwick Express providing a regular service to London Victoria in about 30 minutes). There are also a number of excellent schools in the area, including Cottesmore, Handcross Park, Christs Hospital, Worth School, Ardingly College and Hurstpierpoint College.
From Horsham, take the A264/Crawley Road towards Crawley and Gatwick. At the roundabout with the B2195, take first exit to stay on the A264. Shortly thereafter turn left onto Wimland Road. The property will be found on your right after approximately 0.3 miles.
