The Coach House is a charming Grade II listed property, built in the mid 1800's, and is located in the heart of Petworth. The building is, as the name suggests, an old coach house, which was converted into a residential dwelling in 1975, with later alterations. The attractive external elevations at the front are mainly of stone, with brick quoins under a slate tiled roof. The spacious and well-presented accommodation includes many period features such as exposed beams, wood floors, wooden doors and high ceilings.
From the street, the front door opens into a lobby, which in turn opens into the lovely sitting room, with a high ceiling, exposed beams, a wooden parquet floor, gas fired stove, door opening into the garden and staircase. The kitchen/breakfast room includes a range of fitted units with a wooden work top, electric hob and oven and space for a kitchen table, exposed beams and an attractive bay window overlooking the courtyard garden. Also off the sitting room, a door opens into a double bedroom, with a high ceiling, fitted wardrobes and a door opening into an ensuite bathroom with bath, incorporating a shower, wc, basin and heated towel rail. From the sitting room room a staircase rises to the first floor with double bedroom, with fitted wardrobes and a separate bathroom, with bath, basin, wc and heated towel rail.
From Bartons Lane there is access to the garage with electrically operated up-and-over door. At the rear of the house is a pretty, private courtyard garden, which is mainly paved, and includes a wide variety of plants and shrubs, with a garden shed to one side and street access.
