A beautifully renovated Grade II listed house, and detached annexe set in beautiful gardens in a private yet highly accessible location

Dillions Farmhouse
The Farmhouse has been the subject of an extensive programme of extension, refurbishment and redecoration during the vendor’s ownership and now offers an exceptionally well-presented family home. The core of the house is thought
to be a timbered Tudor Hall house with Horsham stone roof, adapted by the later insertion of a large inglenook fireplace, which now serves both the formal sitting room and drawing room. Later additions provide both the spacious kitchen/breakfast room and family snug on the ground floor, and the master suite on the first floor.
The house has been the subject of complete redecoration overseen by a well-known local interior designer. Of particular note are the hand-built Martin Moore Kitchen, the quality of the internal joinery and finishes, and the bright and stylish country décor throughout. The house extends to some 3,766 square feet (349 square meters).

On the ground floor accommodation
includes drawing room, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, family room, entrance hall, utility/
boot room and cloakroom. On the first floor is a master bedroom suite comprising bedroom, dressing area, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom, 5 further bedrooms and family bathroom. The house offers all the charm and character of a historic Sussex Farmhouse, whilst benefitting from a layout that lends itself to modern family living and is presented to the
very best standards.

Old Stables Cottage
The Old Stables Cottage was the site of former stabling and was converted by the vendors and is
now presented to an exceptionally high standard, again with interior design over-sight.

Accommodation extends to 671 square feet (62.4
square meters) and comprises an open plan living area and kitchen with wood-burning stove, well proportioned double bedroom, second bedroom/study and shower room.

Gardens and Grounds
The vendor’s passion for gardening is clearly evident at Dillions. During his ownership, with the advice and input of renowned garden designer Richard Taylor of Taylor Tripp Ltd, fantastic gardens have been created around the house. To the east of the older parts of the house is a charming cottage style garden surrounding an old
well, with Cotswold stone gravel paths edged by planting including Verbena, roses, Mexican Daisies
and perennial Geraniums. At the front of the house, accessed from the French doors from the kitchen is a newly created terrace with wonderful alfresco entertaining space, hedged parterres and sunken spa pool. To the rear of the house is a beautiful circular pond, created using the old horse-pond at Dillions, and now a wonderful feature surrounded by Lavender, a large block of white Hydrangea Annabelle, roses and a striking red maple. There is a formal vegetable garden, greenhouse, and treehouse, whilst the area to the
front of the property provides a wildlife pond and area of grassland giving wildflower habitat.

A range of traditional outbuildings currently provide storage for winery equipment and the infrastructure related to the water supply, a workshop, garaging and old stable.
