10 Bedroom Detached House, Steyning, West Sussex, BN44 3AA

Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

Wappingthorn Manor has always been an important house and this is evident in its outstanding location and the scale of its accommodation. It is constructed of red brick with stone transom and mullion windows and a magnificent Horsham Stone roof.

From the lane the house is approached by a magnificent chestnut tree avenue which is 0.4 of a mile long. Passing through the majestic wrought iron gates, the drive gently descends and culminates in a wide oval carriageway, circling a central lawn featuring a pair of mature yew trees and an ornamental fountain.

Internally there are fine exposed timbers, panelling and floors. No expense has been spared in recent restorations which are extensive and in keeping with the historical and stately character of the house.

The accommodation is over three floors and is accessed by staircases and/or a passenger lift to all floors.

There is a comfortable, well planned and balanced mix of formal and informal living rooms, bedrooms and guest suites. In addition there are 2 separate self contained staff apartments.

Although very much a wonderful family home, the outstanding location, scale, and historic provenance, make it equally suited to potential conversion for commercial uses. Planning consent would of course be required.

Situation
Wappingthorn Manor is situated about two miles north of the attractive market town of Steyning which offers good local shopping and other facilities. There is easy access via the A283 to Shoreham, the A27, M23 and A24. Brighton and the south coast is approximately 13 miles to the south east, and Chichester, about 20 miles to the south west. Central London is only about 50 miles. Trains to London are available at Haywards Heath from 46 minutes to London Victoria or London Bridge. Gatwick Airport is easily accessible and only about 25 miles to the north.

Sporting and recreational facilities in the area include showjumping at Hickstead; golf at Pulborough, West Chiltington and Mannings Heath; racing at Brighton, Goodwood, Fontwell and Lingfield; and sailing from Chichester and Brighton Marina. The surrounding countryside and the South Downs provide many miles of beautiful walks and rides. Good schools in the area are numerous and include Ardingly College, Brighton College, Hurstpierpoint College, Lancing College, and Roedean.

Outside
From the lane the house is approached by a magnificent chestnut tree avenue which is 0.4 of a mile long. This culminates in a wide oval carriage driveway circling a central lawn featuring a pair of mature ornamental yew trees and an ornamental fountain.

To the south a part raised York stone terrace overlooks a sunken lawn surrounded on three sides by brick retaining walls and herbaceous and shrub borders. Brick steps lead to the main lawns which are terraced on two levels and are interspaced by gravel pathways.

There are some superb southerly views to the South Downs and Chanctonbury Ring. To the south west, mature hedges enclose a tranquil rose garden with brick and stone retaining walls on one side and York stone steps leading into a beautiful terraced garden which contains the swimming pool and pavilions. The gardens and wider grounds also contain a hard tennis court, impressive lake and many venerable trees.

From the front carriage drive there is access to a large paved courtyard and a detached garage for five cars. A short distance from here, and well screened, lies the two bedroom detached cottage in its own private garden.

Beyond the formal gardens and wider park, and to the south, there is a large area of mixed woodland measuring approximately 15 acres.
