Hamptons International Horsham is bringing to market a stunning Tudor house situated in West Grinstead.
The property was originally part of a larger house in Saffron Walden and believed to have been the home of Sir Thomas Moore’s widow after he was executed. Walden Hall was dismantled and erected in Sussex in 1934 by Sir Ralph Harwood (Deputy treasurer to King George V).
The property has been the subject of much refurbishment by our clients with subtle extensions and alterations made to provide a wonderful blend of stunning traditional features and modern conveniences.
The ground floor now offers a wonderful open plan entrance with open plan snug and a sensational vaulted dual aspect kitchen dining/family room. The ground floor also provides a main reception hall, bay fronted dual aspect sitting room and a dual aspect drawing room with a fabulous open fire.
The first floor offers five bedrooms, the master with a spacious refitted en-suite. Two refitted family bathrooms are accessed from the first floor landing. On the second floor can be found two further double bedrooms and a newly fitted shower room.
The property benefits from planning permission to extend, with extant planning for a substantial great hall on the western side of the house (a replica of part of the original house from Saffron Walden). The property extends in all to about 13.3 acres.
The gardens lie to the south, west and north of the property and provide a lovely setting for the house.
A double garage can be found beside the house with a large newly constructed outbuilding behind providing garaging, stables and a store, planning was also granted for a first floor pool changing room and spacious games room although this has not yet been completed.
A large paved terrace sits to the north and west of the house and leads to the swimming pool set in a paved surround. A tennis court sits behind the pool, although it is now in need of resurfacing. There is an attractive bluebell wood with natural ponds to the north of the house, and lying to the south and west are the paddocks.
The agents are quoting a guide price of £1,750,000 for the property.
