Set within a prestigious private estate, yet in a private and tucked away position, Ranworth Farm is a very well thought out, detached country house of quality, which was constructed in 2015 to the present owners’ exacting specification. Enjoying a fine outlook over its own land and adjoining local countryside, the house has been designed with modern day living and technologies in mind, whilst at the same time being mindful of its surroundings. With classic medieval style exterior elevations of exposed oak beams, painted render and red brick, interiors are spacious and sophisticatedly contemporary. Twenty first century standard construction techniques ensure a high level of insulation and energy efficiency, together with under floor heating, an air ventilation system, Solar panelling and wiring for a Sonos sound system. The accommodation is laid out over three floors to provide open plan family living areas and more formal reception rooms. Windows are large, which together with French and bi-folding doors allow for maximum natural light penetration and views of the surroundings. Flooring throughout is either porcelain tiles or wooden. The kitchen/breakfast room is sleekly furnished with a range of floor cabinetry and a large island and has integrated appliances. The lower ground level is a marvellous, light filled space, at present arranged to provide additional living space and an office, it could easily be used as ancillary accommodation for relatives or staff.
The first floor is given over to four bedrooms, supported by three bath/shower rooms, two of which are en-suite. The Master Suite occupies the whole of one side of the property with a stunning bedroom and Juliet balcony, dressing room and spacious en-suite bathroom with separate shower.
The property is situated in Dormans Park which is a favoured residential area with privately maintained roads in a semi-rural location. Dormans Station is about 1 mile away and has direct train services to London Bridge, London Victoria and London St Pancras. Lingfield Village is about 2 miles away and has a good range of local shops, supermarkets, restaurants and public houses as well as the racecourse. More comprehensive shopping can be found in East Grinstead, which is just under three miles away. Local schools include Lingfield College and a village primary school, with schools such as Worth College, Brambletye, Ardingly College, Caterham and Woldingham within driving distance.
Approached via a long, sweeping drive and two sets of electric gates, the gardens and grounds extend to just approximately 10.5 acres (4.25 hectares) and free flowing, natural areas. Large expanses of lawn give way to some lovely ancient woodland, terracing adjoins the house and is ideal for outdoor entertaining, whilst elsewhere is a kitchen garden with raised beds and deer proof fencing as well as a young orchard. Paddocks are fenced and there is an exceptional outbuilding which provides a large barn, a workshop and two loose boxes, a wood store and has a covered area for vehicles. A detached triple garage provides covered car parking.
