Approached by a long tree-lined driveway the property sits in an elevated position. Built during the early 20th Century, the property represents a large family home, extending to approximately 5,759sq ft., with generous room sizes and overall proportions throughout.
The every-day entrance to the property, being adjacent to the main parking area, is into the rear entrance, with its adjoining utility and downstairs wc, which in turn leads to the Clive Christian kitchen with AGA and Orangery with plantation shutters. Immediately of note are the generous
ceiling heights throughout the property and the abundance of light from the recently replaced timber-framed double glazed leaded-light windows.
The ground floor consists of three formal reception rooms each with feature working fireplaces and having the benefit of a southerly aspect along with a study and further guest wc. The original formal entrance to the property is from the south side and leads into the current family room.
Rising to the first floor from the wide and impressive solid oak staircase, there is a spacious landing area flooded with natural light and leads to a family bathroom at both ends of the floor and four double bedrooms. The master bedroom has an adjacent dressing room.
Stairs rise to a spacious second floor with three further large bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen.
Positioned in a stunning rural location close to the Surrey/West Sussex border and with extensive views, Durfold Place is well located being just beyond the picturesque village of Warnham.
The village centre itself is within easy reach of the town of Horsham with its more extensive amenities and shopping facilities.
Horsham’s mainline railway provides services to London Victoria and London Bridge (approximately 55 minutes). The Horsham bypass also provides excellent access to Three Bridges station, the M23/25 and Gatwick airport. Schooling in the area includes Warnham Church of England Primary School with many nearby state and private schools
including Farlington, Pennthorpe, Cranleigh and Christ’s Hospital.
There is extensive parking surrounding the property and on the north side is a large, detached converted barn of 2,152 sq. ft. incorporating a shower room and a large media/ entertainment/gym area with a Jotul woodburner to the ground floor. An external staircase leads to a large open
room above with electric heating and could be utilised as a home office or as secondary accommodation subject to the necessary consents. Furthermore, there are three garden stores to the rear of the barn.
The formal garden is laid mainly to lawn with a range of mature trees to the boundaries and with an outdoor heated swimming pool located in the rear garden.
Adjacent to the driveway is a 1.3 acre paddock suitable for grazing and bordered by a post and rail fence. The driveway creates a wonderful approach to the property which itself is set well
back in its plot and away from the lane.
In all the grounds extend to just over 3 acres.
