Summary

Wyckham Farmhouse is an attached Grade II Listed period house of 16th Century origin with later additions providing spacious family accommodation. Elevations are brick under pitched roofs of Horsham Stone and clay tile and internal features include some exposed oak framing, open fireplaces and exposed pine doors. The gardens, with banked lawns, provide some fine views over the adjoining open farmland, and a swimming pool and large terrace provide an ideal space for outdoor entertaining. The house is on the market for the first time in 45 years, during which time it has been carefully maintained, but a buyer will see an opportunity to further modernise and enhance the accommodation to complement this extraordinary country location.

Location

The property is in a delightful rural setting within sight of a wide sweep of the South Downs National Park. Wyckham Lane is an unmade single-track road which is a continuation of Kings Barn Lane on the eastern edge of Steyning. It is also the 'Downs Link' which traverses the Sussex Weald and connects the North and South Downs and joins other paths and bridleways for the enjoyment of country pursuits. Steyning High Street is about two miles with independent shops, cafes, a Post Office, library, health centre, leisure centre with swimming pool and schools for all age groups.
