The owner told me that this is just an ordinary house in an extraordinary location, and whilst I totally agree with the latter I do feel that to describe this spacious four bedroom home as ordinary would be very unjust indeed. Built in the 1930’s and extended twice since then this wonderful family home offers extensive accommodation with stunning views from many of it’s windows. The lounge area extends to over 19 feet, the log burner will keep you cosy and warm throughout the cold winter months whilst the adjacent conservatory will entice you on warm sunny days. The kitchen is in solid oak, whilst the carved dove detailing reflects the properties well chosen name.
I particularly like the master bedroom, on warm evenings you can fall asleep to the sound of the water cascaded over the little waterfall and then wake up in the mornings to the most beautiful of views, the new owners of “Dovecote” will be very fortunate indeed.
The village of Slinfold is just a short walk away so you can always pop along to the Red Lyon for a drink and a catch up with your neighbours and friends.
The plot extends to 1.38 acres and includes the paddock and formal garden. The driveway leads to the double garage and provides plentiful parking, and the path meanders through the wooded area and over the footbridge across the stream towards this truly stunning family home.
What the Owner says:
We were moving down from Surrey, looking to be nearer my business in Billingshurst and hoping for somewhere that was secluded and private, but not remote. So this location was perfect for us, not only was the office just 10 minutes away but so was Horsham, and with the A29, A24 and A264 all nearby.
The position here, 0.5 km off the Lyons Road means that there is no road noise pollution, so it is beautifully peaceful. The tranquil setting attracts plenty of wildlife including a multitude of birds and a number of Deer that regularly wander into the garden. They often come under the cover of darkness to feed on the camelia's by the kitchen window!
