Wineham Place is an excellent small country estate extending overall to approaching 79 acres and including an outstanding country house set perfectly in the centre of its own grounds consisting of gardens, paddocks and woodland at the end of a long driveway and with good secondary accommodation and recreational and equestrian facilities. The house dates from the early twentieth century with parts of the first and second floor believed to date from Elizabethan times meaning it has an abundance of character with many classic features including, exposed timbers, drop latch doors and inglenook fireplaces, all beneath a Horsham stone roof.

The property has been considerately updated and was extended in 2006 creating a feature room central to modern living, on the west side of the property overlooking the gardens.

The galleried reception hall sets the tone for the house, with wood panelling, stone flagging, and a sweeping central staircase. The study, one of two adjoining the hall, has a range of oak shelves with a built in desk and cupboards.

The winter drawing room has an impressive inglenook fireplace with cast iron hood and brick surround; the summer drawing room, situated in the modern extension, has stripped wood flooring, superb views over the croquet lawn and gardens to the west, and an adjoining cloakroom.

The half panelled dining room has a lovely decorative stone fireplace, with a carved stone surround. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with granite surfaces, a four oven Aga set in a tiled recess and excellent range of wall hung and under counter bespoke cupboards. To the east of the kitchen are the utility room, boot room, laundry, office and a cloakroom.

The principal bedroom has a well-appointed en suite bathroom with under floor heating, bath, separate shower, two basins, heated towel rails and WC. There are four further bedrooms, one with an en suite Jack and Jill bathroom, a family bathroom, separate shower room and WC situated on the first floor; four bedrooms and a bathroom are situated on the second floor. Finally there is a viewing platform at the top of the house giving 360 degree views across Sussex.

The weatherboarded Pool House comprises a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, gym area, shower room with WC, kitchen and integrated pool equipment shed. In front of the pool house is a terrace, with a brick and tiled barbecue shelter.

The garage and stable block is situated to the north east of the house, and features a sliding door opening to the garage, and through to the tack room, and groom’s room with sink and WC.

Above the main stable is a groom’s flat comprising: kitchen, sitting room, 2 bedrooms and bathroom.

There are three stables opening to the yard, and two at the rear, together with space for vehicle storage and a generator room. There is a further stable building with two boxes and a feed store to the east. Beyond this lie the sand school, a winter paddock, a small enclosed paddock, a horse walker for six horses and a timber framed machinery store with secure garaging. The woodstore is also located close by.

The six paddocks lying to the north and west of the house are fully enclosed by post and rail fences and have water connected. The southern paddock has been used as a polo stick & ball pitch. To the North side of the holding is a pretty mixed woodland block.

The single storey Lodge House, which has scope for updating, sits within its own hedged garden and comprises an open plan sitting/dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom, and WC.

Wineham Place is approached through wrought iron electric gates opening to a drive which sweeps past the Lodge House and paddock to a gravelled parking area in front of the house.

To the front of the house is a lawn which borders the southern paddock, and a large pond with seating area, duck island and stocked with fish. A second pond is situated to the south west of the house.

The main gardens are situated to the west of the house, with a croquet lawn between the Pool House and the Summer House loggia, and flower beds beyond. To the north west are the kitchen garden, the orchard, greenhouse, and the northern terrace with pergola, low level hedging and space for table and chairs. Beyond this lies the all-weather tennis court.
