The Ridge Hill Manor Estate is a classic West Sussex country house believed to date back to the 18th century. Inside are a number of period features which add character including exposed timbers and attractive open fireplaces.

Principal accommodation is largely centered around the entrance hall and the magnificent galleried drawing room, with its vaulted ceiling. The majority of the bedroom accommodation is arranged over two floors, linked by the drawing room gallery.

Accommodation comprises: entrance hall, galleried drawing room, dining room, family/games room, study, kitchen/breakfast room with pantry, cloakrooms, boot room, and internal integral annexe (sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom); upstairs are the master suite and further bedrooms (two are en-suite), plus a further two bathrooms.

Three cottages provide additional accommodation external to the house while the formal gardens lie to the rear of the property. A stone terrace lies adjacent, opening onto an expanse of lawn and to the south and the west are paddocks and pasture with the river meandering from north to south. To the west is a wooded area, which has a fun tree house. The gardens and grounds come to over 48 acres.

The Ridge Hill Manor Estate sits two miles to the west of the village of Turners Hill and just over two miles from East Grinstead.

The guide price is £4m. For further information please contact Savills on 01444 446 000 or visit the house on their website.
