Believed to date from the late 1500’s, and extended in the 1800’s and 1970’s, Nutknowle Farm has been sympathetically improved and modernised over the years to become a stunning seven bedroom family home, offering spacious and versatile accommodation, yet retaining the charm and character of the past. Features of note include; part Horsham Stone tiled roof, exposed timbers and beams, beautiful Parquet flooring in the entrance hall and dining room, impressive Inglenook fireplaces in the drawing and dining rooms (including original bread oven to the latter), wood latch doors, traditional styled bathroom with free standing bath and part wood panel walls, second bathroom with spa bath and separate “drench head” shower, built in book cases to the first floor landing and built in wardrobe cupboards to some bedrooms as well as eaves storage. The “L” shaped kitchen/breakfast room boasts a bespoke fully fitted solid oak kitchen with stylish granite worktops and central island with oak worktop, two oven electric Aga and conventional Aga Module double oven and hob, built in microwave and dresser unit and ceramic tiled flooring which extends to the utility room, inner hallway and cloakroom. The dual aspect sitting room has a feature fireplace (non-working) and double doors giving access to the paved terrace and garden beyond. A superb turned staircase leads to the first floor. The dual aspect master bedroom suite has a spacious en-suite bathroom with separate shower and fully fitted dressing room.
The property is approached via electric wrought iron gates to an extensive gravelled drive which, along with the garaging, provides ample parking. The mature gardens surrounding the property are delightful, being mainly laid to lawn with specimen trees and flower, shrub and hedge borders providing privacy and seclusion. The more formal garden area of symmetrical box hedging is complemented by areas of “natural” garden, including the delightful pond, and the vegetable garden complete with greenhouse. The former pool house, with quarry tiled flooring and shower room, could be put to a variety of uses, including a gym, home office, studio or, if a swimming pool were desired, back to its original use. The attractive paved terrace to the rear of the property provides the perfect location for outside entertaining and has stunning views to the South Downs and Devils Dyke. To the south of the gardens is a good sized paddock with large block and steel barn which could, subject to any necessary consents, be adapted for a number of purposes such as equestrian or leisure facilities, such as a swimming pool.
