This pretty period family house is ideally placed in a semi-rural position adjoining a bridleway straight into St. Leonards Forest and occupies a total plot of about 2.29 acres. As shown on the attached floorplan the accommodation on offer is expansive and includes a boot room store off the entrance lobby and a hallway which leads to a wonderful triple-aspect 30' sitting room, a downstairs wc second kitchen/generous utility room, conservatory and 22' kitchen breakfast room. Beyond this a dining room and a ground floor double bedroom and bathroom. This end of the house lends itself to an attached annexe if required.
The first floor offers four lovely bedrooms and a family bathroom.
In total the whole amounts to about 2359sqft.
The property is situated in a beautiful rural location about 4 miles to the east of Horsham town centre, set off a small private lane and close to St. Leonard's Forest, which is known for its walking and riding, stretching to the South abutting Mannings Heath and Hammerpond Road. Horsham provides a comprehensive selection of shops, restaurants and both sporting and leisure facilities. Colgate itself offers a junior school, excellent pub, village hall and Church. The property benefits from excellent road and rail communications, with the M23 junction 11 about 2.5 miles distant. Both Horsham and Three Bridges offer an excellent train service to London (Victoria/London Bridge) and the Gatwick Express is about 11 miles (Victoria 30 minutes). Over the surrounding countryside there are many miles of beautiful walks and rides.
A particular highlight of this wonderful home is the generous plot of about 2.29 acres. Accessed from a private lane/bridleway there is an in and out driveway to the front of the house with a separate driveway leading to the detached double car barn, with a further integrated enclosed bay, which is utilised as a workshop/tool shed. There is also a log store to the other side of the building and a shed and garden store. The gardens are predominantly set to lawn but this expanse gives way to beautiful mature woodland at the edges of the plot. A sizeable patio sits to the immediate rear of the house.
