A delightful 148.2 acre grass farm with four bedroom character farmhouse, and diverse buildings in a tucked away location, yet close to the centre of Henfield.

For Sale as a Whole

The House: The property is approached by a gravelled drive, passing a mature orchard. The house is full of character but understood not to be listed. It was extended some years ago to provide comfortable family accommodation. The solid oak front door leads to an entrance hall with brick floor and galleried landing over, understairs cupboard and cloakroom off. The main sitting room is double aspect again with brick floor, large inglenook fireplace with log burner, and has study off. There is a second sitting room and a piano room again with an inglenook fireplace and traditional stove. In the extension there is an outside door leading to the farmhouse kitchen with pine units, high ceiling, slate floor and Aga, and utility room with similar slate floor and pine fronted units with wooden work surfaces, corner butlers sink, and oil-fire d boiler serving radiators.   

The dining room is a feature being a vaulted room with much exposed timbering, flag stone floor with under floor heating and french doors to garden. On the first floor there is a spilt level landing with a good range of built in cupboards including an airing cupboard. The main bedroom is double aspect with internal shutters to the windows and an en-suite bathroom with shower cubicle and free standing bath. There are three more bedrooms, one semi-vaulted and a family bathroom.

There are delightful gardens to the west and east including a large brick surfaced terrace with flower and shrub borders and a well with a pump. Beyond is an outdoor swimming pool with cedar wood pool house housing the filtration unit and oil-fired boiler. Domestic greenhouse and feature pond with lawned areas surrounding and lean-to log store.

To the north of the house is a detached building known as Rede House, 30.6m x 4.0m divided into four offices/stores and a shower room with WC. Adjacent gravelled parking area.


The Stables and Farmbuildings: With access from both the garden and the drive there is a concrete stable yard with a range of two timber stables, tack room and outside tap. There is a separate range of four stables and a lock up tack room.

A five bar wooden gate leads to a hard standing area which serves the range of farm buildings.

The first is a five bay Red Alce steel framed barn, 23.0m x 7.6m, with four open bays and one enclosed workshop bay with timber cladding under a fibre cement pitched roof. Lean-to stores on either end. The second is a four bay Red Alce steel framed barn, 18.0 x 7.6m, partially enclosed with timber cladding under a fibre cement pitched roof.

Beyond the farm buildings is a fenced and floodlit all weather outdoor arena 40m x 20m with sand and rubberised surface.


The Land: The land lies in a single block and is divided into traditional pasture fields with hedgerows and two copses and an area of brookland pasture which provides excellent summer grazing and is a haven for wildlife. The land benefits from two separate access tracks (one overgrown) to the public highway and direct access of the Downs Link Bridlepath.
In all it extends to approximately 148.2 acres (59.97 hectares).
