Miswells House is a handsome Grade II Listed period house with many fine period features, the western part of which is a 2 bay, 16th century or earlier, timber framed building while the eastern section is a later addition. A plaque above the
door states ‘This house was built in the reign of Queen Elizabeth and restored in the reign of King Edward the seventh by Sir Weetman Pearson Bart 1902’. The house has tile hung painted and rendered elevations with exposed timbers. The
extensive accommodation of the main house extends to 4483 sqft of living and entertaining space including elegant principle reception rooms. These rooms have beautiful exposed wooden flooring and attractive fireplaces. The bedroom
accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes a wonderful master suite including a beautiful en-suite bathroom with a free-standing claw foot bath. The further four bedrooms on the first floor offer much charm and character and are
served by a good sized family bathroom. The second floor has been re-designed to include a wonderful space which would suit a teenager or staff and has its own bathroom.
Miswells House is situated in a slightly elevated position protected by formal gardens and grounds yet within easy access of excellent amenities and
communications. The nearby villages of Turners Hill and Crawley Down offer local shops whilst a wider range of facilities are available in the towns of East Grinstead and Haywards Heath. From Three Bridges there is a main line rail service to London (Victoria/London Bridge from 37 minutes)
and Gatwick Express provides a direct service to Victoria in about 30 minutes. The M23 provides access to Gatwick Airport, the coast, the M25 and the national motorway network. There is an excellent selection of prep and senior schools in the area including Handcross Park, Worth, Brambletye, Cumnor House, Cottesmore, Ashdown
House and Ardingly College. Sporting and recreational facilities in the area include golf at Copthorne, Effingham Park and Royal Ashdown, horse racing at Lingfield Park, Plumpton and Brighton, show jumping at Hickstead and polo at Rowfant and Knepp Castle.
The property sits comfortably within approximately 3.844 acres of formal gardens and grounds. The current owners have spent much time to create
a wonderfully diverse garden including expansive lawns interspersed by mature trees, a vegetable and fruit garden, a natural meadow garden and a fenced pigsty. A beautifully positioned timber
summerhouse has double doors opening out to the lawns making a superb enclosed dining area where entertaining can extend outside when the weather dictates. The property is approached by a large private driveway providing parking for numerous
vehicles and into the courtyard area.
Within the grounds the current owners have skilfully converted a stable to create wonderful annexe accommodation over two floors which could form two separate living spaces or one larger. They are beautifully presented throughout with much attention to detail and extend to over 1100 sqft. It would equally suit someone looking for extensive office space outside of the main residence. This also forms part of a courtyard to the front of the property where you also have another large outbuilding arranged as garaging and workshop space.
