Coneyhurst is a rare family-sized estate that is full of surprises. The farmhouse stands at the end of a chestnut tree-lined drive in manageable and charming gardens and farmland surrounding the house.
The house is a Grade II-listed, half-timbered, Sussex farmhouse totalling nearly 4,300 square feet with six bedrooms – each with their own bathroom. There is a south facing breakfast room, kitchen and small TV room. The dining room leads off the kitchen and into the drawing room to provide excellent circulation for family and entertainment.
Listed building consent has been granted for the reconfiguration of the breakfast room, family room, boot room and utility room which would enable the existing kitchen to be moved to this area thereby enjoying a considerably larger open plan layout. We believe this work could be carried out cost effectively and relatively quickly. Plans are available from the vendor’s agent.
Folly Barn is a very practical three bedroom family home in its own right.
Coneyhurst is surrounded by English country flowerbeds and delightful garden vistas as well as the more distant views. Herbaceous borders and lawns lead to the pond that is crossed by a bridge made from Coneyhurst oak. To one side, through a tall hedge and just a few steps from the house, is the almost secret swimming pool.
An Asian-style Pavilion is another surprise with its shingle roof, bamboo sunblinds and an unlikely wood burning stove. This structure connects the pool and the tennnis court, which has its own rustic Tennis House.
Beyond the tennis court there is a triple closed garage, a triple carport and a drive-in tractor/wood shed.
Beyond the garden and pond, the estate offers about 94 acres of farmland that is kept under grass and grazed by a local farmer. Well-managed fields are bordered by mature hedges and more than 500 oak trees.
At its heart, and partly visible from the house is a one-acre lake with an enchanting Lake House.
The far reaching views to the South Downs include the Chactonbury Ring.
This property has 109 acres of land.
