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. The aspect of the farm is mainly south facing and incorporates approximately 12.25 acres of gardens and pasture. 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. Further adjacent land could be available under separate negotiation. The Location Howick Farm is beautifully positioned in a secluded area about 2 miles from Kirdford and approximately 5 miles from Petworth, both of which offer good local amenities.
