Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 6
PRICE RANGE £1,250,000 to £1,300,000. Westlands Grange comprises a handsome and deceptively spacious wing of the fine old period house at Westlands which is believed to originally date from the 17th C. or earlier origins and then with substantial remodelling and additions in the 19th C. by Mr. Wildman Cattley, previously of Brighton, who had bought the 118 acres estate in 1897. It is reputed that Wildman Cattley employed an architect to oversee his aggrandisement of the house by the name of Lutyens, afterwards Sir Edwyn.

After a range of different owners between 1909 and 1945, in the last half of the last century, the estate was broken down into different parts with the principal dwelling being divided into three separate freehold residential units and with Westlands Grange forming the West Wing and the largest and most private part of the building.

The house affords beautifully presented and proportioned accommodation of great character and style and ideally suited to entertaining and family living as well as home working with two separate studies plus beautiful gardens and grounds for quiet contemplation and relaxation. The external elevations include an attractive mixture of part painted and rendered walls, part exposed timbering and with a mixture of pitched roof slopes covered in part Horsham stone, part clay tiles and part slate. The traditional timber windows have been stripped and polished pine to the inside of the principal rooms to further enhance the character of the accommodation and with secondary glazing to some rooms and part double glazing. In addition there is a very spacious cellar.
