The property is situated just north of Petworth and south of Northchapel, within easy reach of Haslemere mainline station and the A3 at Hindhead. Petworth (2.3 miles) is an attractive old market town perhaps best known for the National Trust owned Petworth House with its beautiful 750 acre parkland. The town also benefits from a regular farmers market, first class deli and shops catering for most everyday needs. There are annual Petworth music and literary festivals and a range of vibrant societies. Sporting activities include golf at Cowdray Park and horse and motor racing at Goodwood. More comprehensive shopping facilities, including major supermarkets, can be found in Haslemere (8.5 miles) and Chichester (16 miles) which also has the renowned Festival Theatre. Communications with London are surprisingly easy with mainline stations at Haslemere (Waterloo 60 minutes) and Pulborough (7.5 miles, Victoria 70 minutes). The A3 (M) is within a 11 mile drive.

Probably dating from the late 1800's, this attractive detached house has been extended in more recent years and now provides extensive and adaptable family accommodation. The front door opens to a welcoming reception hall with cloakroom. The light and airy formal dining room opens to the double aspect drawing room with its open fireplace and doors to the south facing garden terrace. A separate study provides a quiet work from home space whilst at the other end of the house is a spacious family room. The well fitted kitchen has an Aga and an adjoining breakroom room with doors to the east facing terrace, A utility room completes the ground floor. From the hall a staircase rises to the first floor which offers not only three self-contained bedroom/bathroom suites but three further bedrooms (one currently fitted as a dressing room) and a fourth bathroom. Most bedrooms have custom made wardrobes and one has an adjoining roof terrace. A second staircase to one suite provides potential to create a self-contained annexe if required.

The property is approached by a gravelled drive leading to a wide parking area in front of the house and on to the garage. The well kept grounds are designed for ease of maintenance and mostly to the east and south of the house. An extensive shaded terrace extends along two sides of the property, providing a perfect setting for al fresco dining. A croquet lawn bounds the terrace to the east and is overlooked by an attractive Dovecote. To the south a short walk across the lawn leads to the heated swimming pool enjoying its own oasis of calm encircled by mature Photinia hedges. The refurbished and re-lined pool is heated by a recently installed air source heat pump and new pumping-room equipment. The gently sloping grounds continue beyond the pool and are laid mainly to lawns surrounded by mature oaks and ashes and with a variety of specimen trees and shrubs and a childen's play house. There is also a
brick-built artesian well affording alternative water supply.

SERVICES: Mains water and electric, oil fired central heating, Klargester private sewage system .

Places of interest

    Founded in 1988, Barrington and Company are leading independent residential and commercial estate agents and property managers. We have prominently located offices in Petworth and Midhurst covering one of the most sought after and desirable areas of West Sussex.Our approach to property sales and lettings is a little different from other estate agents. We concentrate on a select few properties at any time and this policy enables us to devote our efforts and resources to achieving the results our clients expect, a rapid sale or let at the best possible price or rent. What we do not do is leave your property to sell itself while we are out taking on yet more properties in order to meet a head office quota. Our clients deal directly with the person who conducted the initial property appraisal, who will see the transaction through from beginning to end. We do not employ part time viewing ladies or expect our clients to conduct viewings of their properties for us. All our instructions are sole or joint sole agencies. We are often invited to act with some of the country’s most prestigious London agents. We will only take on a property that we know we can sell or let. We advise our clients on achievable prices not prices to win the instruction. Sometimes this policy does not win us the instruction first time round but we are often asked back when the first appointed agent has failed to deliver. We’ve been around along time and have traded successfully through boom and bust markets, always aware that we are only as good as our reputation. We rarely lose an instruction and most of our business now comes from personal recommendations from previous clients. We don’t need to blow our own trumpet – our clients are happy to do that for us - read our "Testimonials".

    Broadband availability and predicted speed: obtained from Ofcom on May 25, 2022

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength: obtained from Ofcom on May 25, 2022

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
