Lackhams is fine Edwardian country house, built in about 1910 and which has been in the ownership of the present family for 55 years. A number of the original Edwardian features have been retained including floor tiling, polished herringbone wood flooring, cornicing, doors, radiators and the stained glass feature window above the staircase. The property is in need of refurbishment and provides an outstanding opportunity to create a spacious family house in a truly delightful setting.
The principal accommodation comprises a spacious reception hall with a charming corner bay and fireplace, an elegant double reception room, dining room and kitchen. From the hall the staircase rises to a large landing, 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A later 2 storey extension provides a self-contained 2 bedroom staff/relatives cottage but which could be incorporated into the main accommodation.
Lackhams is situated in a beautiful elevated setting about 1 mile to the east of Slinfold village centre and about 3 miles to the west of Horsham. The delightful village of Slinfold is noted for its period cottages and houses and provides a village stores, an historic church, school and inn. At Broadbridge Heath, about 1 mile, there are excellent facilities including superstores and sports facilities whilst Horsham provides comprehensive facilities and a main line rail service to London. In the area there are excellent schools including Slinfold Primary School, Farlington, Pennthorpe and Cranleigh as well as golf courses at Slinfold, Rookwood (Horsham), Wildwood (Alfold) 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 1 ½ miles) provides access to Gatwick Airport, the M23 and the national motorway network.
From Lyons Road an impressive part tree-lined entrance drive with broad grass verges rises between the paddocks to a large gravel parking to the front of the house and then extends to one side. The gardens to the west of the drive are laid to lawn, inset and bordered by a variety of mature trees and beyond is the former swimming pool and pool house (both in need of repair). To the south of the house is an open area of garden suitable to be laid to lawn and to the west is an area of woodland. To either side of the drive are paddocks and close to the entrance drive there is a loose box. In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 12.5 acres.
