This pretty period barn conversion is one of the oldest properties within this exclusive estate. A beam on the first floor shows a carpenter’s inscription of 1831, although the building may well be older. The barn was converted into a family home just after the second world war, with later extensions. Many of the principle rooms enjoy tranquil views over the gardens. There are many character features including exposed timbers and vaulted ceilings to the first floor. The house, however, now requires updating and this represents an ideal opportunity for a buyer looking to introduce a new lease of life to an historic building. There are two low beams to the first floor and the current owners have obtained advice as to how this aspect can be re-configured.
Outside, the property is approached through high, double wrought iron gates, where the driveway provides ample car parking. Beyond the driveway, there is a double garage which was constructed in the early 1970’s. There is a room over the garage which has been used as a home office. Further useful outbuildings include a large workshop with power and light, which could be suitable for alternative uses, subject to any consent which may be required. In addition, there is Hartley Botanic greenhouse. The gardens are a particular feature, with formal lawned areas, as well a natural woodland, a haven for both children and wildlife.
Situated on the West Sussex/Surrey borders, Dormans Park originally comprised of over 200 acres of farmland and woodland. Following the arrival of the railway in the Victorian period with London just 28 miles away, it became a peaceful environment in which to live. Today, it offers an interesting variety of houses, both old and new, in tranquil surroundings.
The property is set back from this private road, with open views to the front. The old market town of East Grinstead is within 2.5 miles away, with its wide selection of shops, stores and supermarkets. Dormansland village is about 1 mile with village amenities and pretty church, whilst Lingfield is about 2.5 miles with local shops and the renowned Lingfield Park Racecourse.
There is a good choice of schools, in both the state and independent sector. For commuters, Dormans Station is just under 1 mile away. The station provides a service to Croydon and London (about 50 minutes). For national travel by road, junction 6 of the M25 (Godstone) is about 10 miles away. For the international traveller, Gatwick airport is about 9 miles distant.
