Far reaching views towards the South Downs and to the north are just one of the treasures of Peacocks Hill, a wonderful five bedroom country house located in one and a half acres of countryside near Maplehurst, just to the south of Horsham.

“The location is amazing and the views are awesome,” enthuses selling agent Alex Harvey of Henry Adams.

“There are no near neighbours but you’re only four miles from Horsham and about 20 minutes from Gatwick, or in the other direction from Brighton, so you’re never out of touch - unless you want to be!”

The renowned restaurants at South Lodge Hotel are a short drive away, or a slightly longer walk, and the prime location also falls within the catchment of top local schools Millais and Forest.

“The house itself is mainly Victorian and although it already offers a very generous 3,300 sqft of accommodation with 5 double bedrooms and 6 reception rooms, there is also planning consent to enlarge the ground floor further if required,” says Alex.

“The current owners have created a fabulous family home with stunning bespoke kitchen.

“The classic design includes a larder cupboard and bakers have the choice of using the Aga or the Bosch convection oven or ceramic hob.”

With large windows and good ceiling heights, the rooms are light and spacious throughout, offset by a galleried entrance hall.

Outside is a detached garage block with a double car port and an attached log store, ready for storing fuel for the open fire place in the drawing room this winter.

Peacocks Hill is available through Henry Adams of Horsham for offers in excess of £1,175,000.
