It is not often we offer a rural property to sell that has so much potential. It will appeal directly to those seeking a house with space and an annexe, views of the South Downs, peace and seclusion plus a property with land and outbuildings. All these things are available here, where access is along its own private 200m drive. The main dwelling and the grounds need some improvement but this has been adequately provided for in the realistic asking price. A chance for a family to create their forever home in glorious countryside, just a mile due west of the village of Bolney.
A substantial country property with granny annexe, enjoying complete seclusion within gardens and paddock of about 4.5 acres.
Built in what is believed to have been the 1960's as groom accommodation to the adjacent Ormonde Hall, the property was substantially extended over the next 25 years to create what is today, an imposing country dwelling, enjoying complete seclusion with the benefit of a number of outbuildings and an integral annexe, ideal for a dependent relative or possibly as a lettable asset (AST or AirBNB).
The house requires some modernisation but appears inherently sound with enormous scope for enhancement and further extension (subject to consent).
Outside, the long private driveway terminates in front of the main dwelling with a detached double garage to one side, the roadway runs past the house connecting with the outbuildings which comprise a substantial tandam garage or workshop, a large timber multipurpose building (which could be used as an office or converted into stabling) and a further machine store. A dilapidated swimming pool lies to the back of the house and patio with heating and plant shed, also in need of repair.
The gardens are laid for the most part to grass with some shrubbery and a heavily overgrown fruit cage. Approaching the property one passes an orchard with a number of fruit trees. There is also an area of woodland, triangular in shape that adds an element of interest to those seeking different types of play areas for children. The enclosed field measures about 3 acres and is accessed from a metal farm gate off the drive, an ideal location for one or two horses. Modern LPG (Calor Gas) fired central heating. Double glazed windows. Private drainage.
The area surrounding the property is rural in nature with commercial apple orchards and open fields being the immediate neighbours with Bolney Vineyards to the north east.
The private roadway that leads off the Cowfold Road (A272) serves a number of other country properties up the lane. This property enjoys complete peace and tranquillity with an attractive outlook. This little enclave of property stands about a mile from the pretty High Street of Bolney with its beautiful church and old Inn. There is also a petrol filling station with a useful convenience store just half a mile towards the village on the A272. Bolney itself has a respected primary school, 2 pub restaurants, 2 filling stations with convenience shopping, an active cricket team and other sports played on the recreation ground with a newly built village hall. Bolney Vineyard offers a popular cafe facility and enjoys an excellent reputation for its award winning wines.
The A23 linking Brighton to the M25 is just a 5 minute drive with Crawley, Haywards Heath mainline railway station and Gatwick airport all being about a 15 minute drive.
