Wheelwrights House is a unique country property in a beautiful, rural location in West Sussex, north of the historic town of Petworth and close to the border with Surrey. The property includes Wheelwrights House, an historic Grade II listed 4 bedroom farmhouse, a Grade II listed 2 bedroom, converted barn and extensive equestrian facilities with land extending to approximately 47.31 acres. The farmhouse is believed to have origins dating from the 1520's, with later additions and has attractive external elevations which include timber framing with brick infill, as well as red brick and local stone with brick quoins, all under pitched roofs covered in clay tiles. The house has many period features, which include some exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace and is currently arranged as a reception hall with cloakroom to one side and open to the conservatory, a spit level sitting room with open fire, a kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, a large utility room with larder and 2nd cloakroom. On the first floor is a main bedroom with en suite bathroom, 2 further double bedrooms, a single bedroom and family bathroom. The house offers much scope for improvement.

Adjacent to the house is Wheelwrights Barn, an attractive timber framed Sussex barn, which is believed to date from the 1480's and which has recently been substantially refurbished to a very high standard, into a stunning 2 bedroom annexe/party barn, with very well presented accommodation that includes a large living room with extensive exposed beams, a high vaulted ceiling, wood burning stove and bar to one end. This is all open plan with the fully fitted kitchen that includes an electric Aga. A door to one side leads to the 2 double bedrooms, both with skeiling ceilings, a shower room and cloakroom.

Outside, the property is approached over a large gravel entrance drive which leads to the right, towards the house and barn and, to the left, to the equestrian facilities and land. There is a garden on 2 sides of the house, from which there are very pleasant views over the land and on to the surrounding beautiful countryside.

The entrance drive leads past the studio/office and on to the equestrian facilities, which have been constructed in recent years to a high standard and are arranged around a concrete yard. The timber buildings include 5 stables, a feed store, log store, wash bay, tack room, cloakroom, foaling box and an open bay garage. Adjacent to this is a modern manège, with rubber dressing, flood lights and measuring 40m x 25m. There is also an area of hard standing, suitable for horse boxes etc.

The land is a very important part of the property, as it provides extensive grazing as well as the immediate view, privacy and protection. All is enclosed by mature hedgerows, interspersed with trees, and with extensive stock proof fencing, plus a small area of woodland. There are no public rights of way over the property

Wheelwrights House is situated in the rural hamlet of Hill Grove, a very rural location, close to the popular village of Lurgashall and is within what is known locally as the 'golden triangle'. Lurgashall has a village shop and the popular Noah's Ark public house which sits at the edge of and overlooks the village green. To the east is Northchapel, which includes a village shop/post office, and which offers easy links by road to the old market town of Petworth to the South, with a good selection of independent shops.
