Lindfield Place is a unique Grade II* listed village house, believed to date from the mid-17th century with later additions together with a detached coach house and beautiful mature gardens and grounds. Coming onto the market for the first time in over 30 years, this property offers a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial family home with enormous potential on the High Street of the highly sought-after village of Lindfield.
The house is arranged over three floors together with a cellar and offers more than 6,000 square feet of accommodation. In addition to the main house and located within the grounds is a detached coach house and a very spacious 1 bedroom self-contained first floor apartment which is considered ideal for guests, extended family or alternatively could be let to provide an additional source of income.
Set back on a secluded plot on the high street this very special village house has a wealth of period features, elegant and well proportioned rooms with high ceilings, exposed timber beams, wooden doors and architraves, a beautiful period staircase, wall panelling and charming fireplaces. This much-loved family house is now in need of some updating and offers a purchaser the opportunity to put their own stamp on the property. The original features have been very well preserved, maintaining the character and history of this important property.
This exceptional house offers fine architectural examples of the era with elegant proportions throughout. The ground floor accommodation leads from a lovely central hall from which there is access to a double aspect elegant formal drawing room, stunning family/sitting room, a large snug/study and an office. In addition, on the ground floor there is a kitchen/breakfast room with Rayburn and from the kitchen/breakfast room there is direct access to the garden. Beyond this room is a utility and two cloakrooms and a lower ground floor cellar with wine bins.
The ground floor accommodation is ideally arranged for both formal and informal entertaining and family life. From the entrance hall the main staircase leads up to the lovely first floor landing and arranged over the first floor are six good sized bedrooms, two with ensuite facilities and a family bathroom.
The second floor provides additional rooms for use as bedrooms, teenagers den or study and a large additional bathroom.
Lindfield Place has extensive gardens and grounds totalling approximately 1.6 acres which is very unusual for a house on Lindfield High Street. There is ample parking within the large entrance courtyard which is approached from the High Street via an electrically operated wrought iron entrance gate. To one end of the courtyard is the detached Coach House which offers storage, two former loose boxes and garaging on the ground floor. To one side of the front of the coach house a door gives access to an entrance hall with stairs leading to the spacious first floor self-contained apartment which provides a kitchen, large sitting room, double bedroom and a bathroom.
The gardens are beautiful and offer formal and informal areas and terraces. There is an orchard, walled swimming pool and tennis court (both in need of refurbishment) and a charming summer house used for summer garden parties and entertaining.
