Actress Annie Lambert has put her 20 acre equestrian property on the market with Jackson-Stops & Staff, Midhurst. The four bedroom 17th Century Sussex house has been her home for the past 16 years, since retiring from acting and London life. The actress is best known for her roles on British television, in series including Dr Who, Morse and Poirot.
Anstead Farm, which is not listed, sits at the end of a gravelled drive off a country lane and has an attractive, period Sussex barn forming a small courtyard. The accommodation comprises three excellent reception rooms including a large kitchen breakfast room as well as utility space. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Anstead Farm has extensive equestrian facilities such as eight stables, hay barns and a dressage arena. The property also has delightful gardens, a swimming pool and a duck pond in the grounds.
Nick Ferrier of Jackson-Stops & Staff, Midhurst, says “Anstead Farm sits in most attractive West Sussex countryside moments away from Wisborough Green but also with great access to London. It will appeal to a family of equestrian enthusiasts or someone looking for a hobby farm. Finding a farmhouse of this quality, with a pool, superb equestrian facilities and 20 acres is not easy under £2 million. Plus one has the opportunity to let the land or offer livery in the stables. Moreover there is enormous potential here; the Sussex barn in the grounds could be transformed into an annexe or office space. The block of eight stables has its own access and also has redevelopment possibilities, subject to planning permission.”
