Walden Hall is a sensation detached Tudor House. Originally part of a larger house in Saffron Walden and believed to have been the home of Sir Thomas Moore's widow after he was executed. Walden Hall was dismantled and erected in Sussex in 1934 by Sir Ralph Harwood (Deputy treasurer to King George V).
The property has been the subject of much refurbishment by our clients with subtle extensions and alterations made to provide a wonderful blend of stunning traditional features and modern conveniences. As the attached floorplan explains the ground floor now offers a wonderful open plan entrance with open plan snug and a sensational vaulted dual aspect kitchen dining / family room. The ground floor also provides a main reception hall, bay fronted dual aspect sitting room and a dual aspect drawing room with a fabulous open fire. The first floor offers five bedrooms, the master with a spacious refitted ensuite. Two refitted family bathrooms are accessed from the first floor landing. On the second floor can be found two further double bedrooms and a newly fitted shower room.
The property benefits from planning permission to extend, with extant planning for a substantial great Hall on the western side of the house (a replica of part of the original house from Saffron Walden).
The Property is situated in the parish of West Grinstead, about 2 miles to the west of the village of Cowfold. The nearby villages of Cowfold and Partridge Green both provide local shopping facilities whilst the larger centres of Horsham, about 6 miles to the north, and Haywards Heath, about 10 miles to the east, provide comprehensive facilities and main line rail services to London (Victoria/London Bridge). The A23/M23 provides access to Brighton, Gatwick, the M25 and the national motorway network. Sporting and recreational facilities in the area include golf at Mannings Heath and Cottesmore, show jumping at Hickstead and
racing at Lingfield, Plumpton and Brighton. There is an excellent selection of schools in the area including Handcross Park, Cottesmore, Burgess Hill, Hurstpierpoint College, Worth
and Lancing College.
The property extends in all to about 13.3 acres. The gardens lie to the south, west and north of the property and provide a lovely setting for the house. Walden Hall is approached from the road via its own tarmac driveway, which is bound on either side by the property's paddocks. The driveway leads through automated gates and continues to the house. A double garage can be found beside the house with a large newly constructed outbuilding behind providing garaging, stables and a store, planning was also granted for a first floor pool changing room and spacious games room although this has not yet been completed.
The principal gardens are mostly laid to lawn and partially enclosed with hedging, with some well stocked beds, an orchard and there is a variety of mature trees and shrubs.
A large paved terrace sits to the north and west of the house and leads to the swimming pool set in a paved surround. A tennis court sits behind the pool, although it is now in need of re-surfacing. There is an attractive bluebell wood with natural ponds to the north of the house, and lying to the south and west are the paddocks.
