Guide price

Bedrooms: 6
Kings comprises a handsome and sizable detached farmhouse that has been sympathetically improved and modernised by the current owners to offer a beautifully presented period house with the benefit of modern comforts including super kitchen/breakfast room with triple aspect orangery off and modern fitted bathrooms. Grade II Listed, the house is understood to be at its core of 15th Century origin with later additions to the rear and including attractive external elevations of part brickwork and part mellow tile hanging and part exposed timber framing under a pitched and part hipped roof covered in Horsham stone slabs.

Internally, there are a wealth of period features including exposed beams and period fireplaces combined with the stylish interior design to provide a very appealing and comfortable family house also ideally suited for entertaining. The reception rooms face South with the large drawing room with fireplaces to either end and the similarly impressive, beamed dining room with feature inglenook fireplace with study/sitting room off with corner fireplace and door out to the garden. The real heart of the house is the stylish kitchen/breakfast room with pantry and utility room off and with contemporary hand-built fittings topped by stone work surfaces and featuring a circular breakfast bar, Belfast sink and Aga. Two sets of glazed doors open into the elegant orangery with fine outlook over the gardens and grounds and including leading out to the adjacent swimming pool terrace with internal or externally accessed shower/cloakroom. To the first floor, the accommodation can be reached by two separate staircases and includes six bedrooms, three of which benefit from en-suite modern bathrooms and including vintage style family bathroom adjoined by a cloakroom.

Outside, the property is approached by its own electric gated private driveway opening into a sweeping gravel drive with parking for a number of vehicles and leading to the detached timber framed double garage with side log stores and also to further timber framed outbuildings providing flexible additional garage or storage space, or a base for equestrian-minded buyers with side fodder/tractor storage space and a yard including two stables and tack/feed room and with pretty outlook across the gardens and grounds, adjoining brook and kitchen garden area with mixed tree planting beyond.

The gardens themselves lie principally to the South and East of the house providing a wonderful setting and outlook with wide expanses of lawn with terracing adjoining the house and clipped box hedging to the edges of paths and terraces. A path leads to the outdoor swimming pool with paved surround and retractable cover plus adjacent pool plant room. To the Southern extremity of the garden is a large ornate fish pond with part jettied deck and framed by fine willow trees to the outer edges.

Beyond the drive and outbuildings are the additional areas of pasture land to the North and East sides with fence enclosed hard tennis court to one side and then land beyond including a post and rail fenced home paddock with field shelter to the East side and then an area of light copse and wildlife pond to the furthest, North end. The fields provide a great base for mixed grazing or, as currently utilised, for quiet enjoyment and exercise with mown pathways between the swaths of wildflowers and grasses. The property as a whole extends to approximately 10.39 acres (4.20Ha).
