About this property

TENURE: Freehold

An outstanding Grade II listed country house, dating from 1913 and retaining much of its fine Arts and Crafts architectural integrity, originally designed by the renowned architect Barry Parker. It is an excellent house for entertaining with substantial family accommodation over three floors. There are many original features, including the intricate Moorish screen in the impressive entrance hall, carved oak joinery, oak floors and wall panelling, and some magnificent fireplaces. The handsome principal staircase features a two-storey high west facing window which overlooks the rose garden, and contains stained glass by Ernest Heasman depicting the four seasons. The principal reception rooms and bedrooms have a superb outlook, facing due south at the rear of the house, with distant views to the South Downs and St Hugh's Charterhouse Monastery.

Outside
Clock House is approached via a long drive that sweeps to a large turning circle in front of the handsome double fronted north elevation. The house is surrounded on all sides by established landscaped gardens with many beautiful trees, including Pine, Magnolia, Palm, Oak, Portuguese Laurels, Swamp Cypress, and a notable Atlantic Blue Cedar. Mature hedges provide a high degree of seclusion.

To the west, a stone wall featuring Barry Parker's arched, rose-clad, wrought iron gated entrance, encloses an impressive paved sunken rose garden, and there is a unique stone built octagonal gazebo and separate loggia.

To the south, the original formal terrace of rippled Horsham stone has excellent views to the distant South Downs. It overlooks a lower lawn with walled herbaceous borders and further semi-circular terrace with a dry stone wall balustrade. This in turn overlooks a further lower lawn to the haha. The heated swimming pool is to the west and lies behind Yew hedges and to the east there is an orchard and a productive vegetable garden with a greenhouse. The wider gardens contain many various flowering shrubs and mature specimen trees, interspersed by grass paths through areas of light bluebell woodland and parkland grounds, which in all extend to some 7.85 acres (3.18 ha).

Situation
The property is located about 1 mile to the west of the village of Cowfold which offers a post office, general store, a public house, village hall, medical centre, Indian restaurant, St Peters Primary School and a 13th Century Church. The larger village of Henfield lies about 4 miles to the south, with the historic town of Horsham, about 8 miles to the north.
