Gay Street Lane is a picturesque rural lane in the hamlet of North Heath set between Billingshurst and Pulborough. The area is ideal for those that enjoy walking and riding with many interlinking Footpaths and Bridleways within it. Pulborough to the south and Billingshurst to the north are both about 3 miles distant and offer a range of local shops, supermarkets and mainline railway stations to London (Victoria). First and secondary schooling can be found in Billingshurst, and there are a number of private schools in the area.
The town of Horsham can be found approximately 11 miles to the north which provides more extensive shopping and recreational activities, and fast dual carriageway access to Gatwick, the M23 and the national motorway network beyond.
Recreational opportunities include golf at the West Sussex course in Pulborough, racing at Goodwood and Fontwell Park, polo at Cowdray Park and Knepp Castle and sailing at Chichester Harbour.
The property is approached via its own private drive which leads to the detached Grade II listed farmhouse which offers immense character, being mainly stone built with timber framing and some brick infills. The character continues as soon as one enters from the stone pillared porch to a studded front door. There is a beautiful main double aspect reception room with a wealth of exposed beams and a fine inglenook fireplace with log burner. The second reception room is also double aspect and is currently used as a sitting room/study. The newly appointed and fitted kitchen offers a complete contrast with light modern decor including reconstituted French limestone flooring and extensive bespoke units with a new Sandyford Classic range for cooking, heating and hot water. In addition there is a refitted cloakroom and a coats/boots/utility room with WC on the ground floor.
A staircase rises to the first floor landing with airing cupboard and linen cupboard. This leads to the main bedroom with fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower room, second bedroom and family bathroom. Steps lead down to a second landing which provides access to two further semi-vaulted double bedrooms with fine wall beams and oak floorboards, one with and en-suite shower room. A staircase provides access to the attic.
A mature garden surrounds the house and provides a lovely setting from which there are distant views to the north.
The garden has an array of mature trees and shrubs and features include an old flagstone path to the front door bordered by rose bushes, a stocked pond with lillies, timber and tiled privy building, domestic greenhouse and further brick and stone paths and terrace areas. The buildings include a traditional potting shed, a three bay open fronted garage and implement store with workshop. (N.B. Planning consent exists to convert this to an annexe). Hardstanding to the side and mono pitched open fronted two bay barn with concrete floor and windows to the rear.
The land rises to the south and includes some permanent pasture fields and attractive Bluebell woodland with a number of mature Oak Standards and an array of Azaleas and Rhododendrons. There is a separate entrance from the main drive leading to an existing outdoor sand school, approximately 45m x 22m (not measured), bordered by hedging and trees, and an area with planning consent for an agricultural barn, approximately 20m x 10m. It extends in all to approximately 15.32 acres.
