It stands in its own grounds surrounded by farmland and has wonderful views and walks from the door over the Arun Valley towards Wisborough Green. Lee Place Cottage was extended to accommodate a substantial vaulted drawing room in the last 5 years and its layout improved to incorporate a study/home office in lieu of two stores. Both of these additions to the accommodation enjoy a wonderful outlook over the gardens and grounds. As well as an extended house, an annexe has been created adjacent to the house and stables. It has a well equipped kitchenette, WC and living space on the ground floor and a very comfortable double bed and shower room en suite upstairs. The living space benefits from an informal sitting room with open fire beyond a welcoming reception hall. There is an open plan kitchen/breakfast/sitting room fit for modern day living complete with its own fire place, a dual aspect dining room which leads conveniently to a newly built drawing room with vaulted ceiling. The utility room and boot room provide ample room for coats and dogs with a covered link to kick off wellies and provide shelter from the elements - this leads to a home office, a converted and very attractive repurposed outbuilding. Gardens and Grounds The property is approached through a 5 bar gate to a large gravelled drive leading to the gravelled parking area beside the house. The gardens surround the house, mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees and an orchard, including apple, pear, plum, quince and walnut. The formal gardens are planted with flowers and shrubs and retaining dry stone walls with roses. Steps lead down to a disused lawn tennis court, which (subject to planning) could be made into a hard court. There is a large pond stocked with fish surrounded by an area of woodland underplanted with spring flowers. To the north there are 2 parcels of pasture of about 4 acres with post and rail fencing and water. The whole garden has stunning views over the open countryside to the canal and on towards Wisborough Green. A path from the house leads to the Harlow stable block, timber built beneath a tiled roof. There are two stables, tack room and hay barn, outside light and hardstanding.
