We are delighted to bring to the market this character filled four bedroom detached house with a fabulous two bed annexe in a popular location in Horsham. Located just under two miles from Horsham town centre with its wealth of shops, cafes and restaurants, this property is also conveniently located for the Coltsfoot Drive shopping parade, which boasts a chemist, Budgens, Post Office, beauticians, hairdressers, café and takeaway. It is also within easy walking distance of Littlehaven Station with its regular trains to London and two very good primary schools, Holbook and North Heath. Finally, it is also within walking distance of the recently constructed Bohunt Secondary school and is also in the catchment for Millais and Forest schools.

Coming to the market for the first time in 40 years this much-loved family home is bursting with character and charm.  Stepping into the entrance hall, from the storm porch, there is plenty of space to store coats and shoes. You then enter the original heart of the home with a large inglenook fireplace, oak beams and a wonderful oak staircase. Both the kitchen and dining room can be accessed from this room. The kitchen at the rear, has a range of wooden base and wall units and breakfast bar, the dining room has a modern touch with large patio doors leading out to a decked area, to make the most of the southerly aspect. To the other side of the kitchen is a utility/downstairs shower room, with separate WC at one end. Finally, a second reception room, which is currently being used as a home office but could be a playroom or snug, completes the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is a fantastic size, with feature fireplace and a shower. Bedroom two is a good-sized double, bedroom three a small double but with a quirky mezzanine area accessed by a ladder and bedroom four is a single. We believe this unique property was built in the 1920s, with an arts and crafts feel, it has original cast iron diamond pane windows and an internal viewing is highly recommended.

Brook Barn annexe was completed in 2019 and was cleverly designed to maximise the space within.  It is completely self-contained. The front door leads you into a large entrance hall with plenty of space to hang coats and store shoes. Directly ahead is the downstairs cloakroom which is also home to the washing machine, doubling up as a small utility area. A further door leads you through to the spacious kitchen area which has a large number of cream base and wall units, oak worktops, hob, oven and fridge.  It also has a breakfast bar area which can seat two, possibly three people. The kitchen area is open plan to the living area which is dual aspect and also has double doors leading out onto a small patio area -  ideal for enjoying the afternoon/evening sun. A large understairs cupboard completes the downstairs accommodation. To the first floor are two double bedrooms, the larger of which has some built-in storage, both have vaulted ceilings and velux windows as well as side windows. Finally, the modern bathroom is comprised of a white suite, with large walk-in shower with waterfall shower head.

A gated gravel driveway leads up to the property. There is ample parking for 4-5 cars, in addition to the allocated space for the annexe. There are mature shrub borders and trees and the garden of the main house wraps around the property. At the rear is the vegetable garden, to the southern side is a decked area, lawn and patio to accommodate a garden table. There is a large double garage with power and lighting and PV solar panels on the roof for heating and hot water. The annexe has a patio area and a gravelled area suitable for a clothes line and further seating.
