Hall Land is a substantial detached village house, dating from the late 18th Century with later additions and which has been extensively renovated to create a home of exceptional quality, ideal for a family and entertaining.
From the drive a pillared entrance porch and door open to a reception hall with an inglenook fireplace. The inner hall gives access to an excellent suite of reception rooms providing both formal and informal areas for entertaining including a library with extensive built in book and display shelves and a marble fireplace, sitting room with a marble fireplace and a dining room from which panelled double doors open to an elegant drawing room with a magnificent marble fireplace with a wood burning stove. Throughout great attention has been paid to detail including ornate plaster cornicing and ceilings and in the Georgian part of the house the traditional sash windows have period shutters. The kitchen and adjoining breakfast room have been fitted to an exceptionally high standard with hand made oak units, granite work surfaces, built in appliances and an Aga. From the kitchen a concealed door provides access to a potential self contained annexe which has its own entrance door and staircase to the first floor.
On the first floor are 5/6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, including both the principal suite with a walk-in wardrobe and a guest suite. Throughout, the property is beautifully presented and a viewing is essential to fully appreciate the excellent and versatile accommodation that it offers.
Hall Land is situated close to the centre of the sought after village of Slinfold and about 4 miles to the west of Horsham.
The delightful village of Slinfold is noted for its period cottages and houses and provides a village store, an historic church, school and inn. At Broadbridge Heath, about 2 miles, there are excellent facilities including superstores and sports facilities whilst Horsham provides comprehensive facilities including John Lewis at Home/Waitrose, shops, restaurants and The Capitol Theatre.
In the area there are excellent schools including Slinfold Primary School, Farlington, Pennthorpe and Cranleigh as well as golf at the nearby Slinfold Golf and Country Club, which has a swimming pool and health and fitness facilities, Rookwood (Horsham) and The West Sussex Golf Club near Pulborough.
There are many miles of walks and rides over the surrounding countryside including the Downs Link. The A24 Horsham bypass (about 2½ miles) provides access to Gatwick Airport, the M23 and the national motorway network.
From The Street electrically operated wrought iron gates open on to a sweeping gravel drive, bordered by lawns and mature trees and extends over a stream to a large parking and turning area adjacent to the house. The gardens lie principally to 3 sides of the house and have been beautifully landscaped to provide a mature and secluded setting.
To the rear of the property the garden is enclosed by high brick walling and laid to lawn, fine specimen trees and terracing. To the south of the entrance drive the gardens are laid to lawn, divided by established yew and laurel hedges creating separate areas, one arranged as an ornamental Japanese garden.
The detached former coach house provides excellent garaging, workshop and storage facilities on the ground floor with a large store/studio room above. Planning permission was granted in 2005 (now lapsed) for the conversion of the first floor to staff living accommodation.
