The Property
Howick Farm is approached over a long private drive, flanked by open fields and woodland. Located in an unspoilt rural setting, it is nestled amidst some of the most attractive countryside in West Sussex.

Originally an orchard, the groves were converted to pasture, but many of the varied species of fruit trees remain. Subsequently, the property was actively farmed for many years, the fields being used for grazing cattle and sheep and haymaking. Now, Howick Farm is a purely equestrian estate, boasting its own polo field and an indoor riding arena.

The aspect of the estate is mainly south facing and incorporates approximately 60.38 acres (24.44 hectares) of good pasture. The land is largely untouched with many rare and interesting species of plants and wildlife, including wild orchids and visiting barn owls. The most northerly field has the benefit of two small ponds and has been left to flower as an indigenous meadow which teems with wildlife.

The well established woodland covers approximately 33.54 acres (13.57 hectares) and comprises broadleaves and conifers. The woodland and open pasture with streams and ponds combine to provide a particularly attractive amenity for the farm. Sporting rights are in hand.

The main residence has grown from the original converted granary, by incorporating the large adjacent Sussex barn and log store. Double glazed and with underfloor heating throughout, the old barn now comprises an extremely large living room and master bedroom suite with a mezzanine floor. Whilst the old granary now contains the kitchen/diner, library and two good sized guest bedrooms.

The outbuildings are well maintained and together with the main house form a quadrangle. This large courtyard is a rare authentic representation of a Sussex farmstead and creates a sheltered haven. On the north side, there is an unconverted Sussex Barn This barn has a fabulous structure and does present many possibilities for its use, but it would make a great "party barn". Across the courtyard from the main house is the stable barn, which has 3 stables, feed room, tack room and guest accommodation with one bedroom (easily two with minor amends), bathroom and kitchen. This could form staff accommodation or a granny annexe. The Sussex barn and stable barn were re-roofed in the last 6 years.
