Formerly a Georgian Rectory, which was demolished around 1970, The Old Rectory was built to exacting standards to replace the original. The property has been designed using a combination of styles; the Georgian large sash windows dominate the external symmetry, whilst there are four large Victorian-style bays at each end of the main house.

Downstairs, there are an abundance of impressive rooms with no shortage of space, light and tall ceilings; the expansive entrance hall and double staircase set the scene. There is an extensive range of facilities, including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, games rooms, a squash court and a tennis court.

There is a large three bedroom lodge adjacent to the main house, providing ample secondary accommodation with six garages

The property also benefits from having no visible neighbours and sits almost exactly in the middle of its own land with views across manicured lawns.

The gardens and grounds have been beautifully created and maintained to the highest standards. They comprise two ponds feeding into a large lake a walled garden with flowerbeds, paths and box hedging. There is a three-hole golf course, a small copse and a wonderful parkland setting which embraces the house and outbuildings totalling circa 27 acres. The house sits in an
elevated position with views over the ponds and lake and is west-facing.

Horsted Keynes church spire is in the background, giving the property a wonderful country village feel and yet totally private.

The Old Rectory is beautifully positioned, being on the edge of the Ashdown Forest and enjoying sweeping views of the South Downs. The location is exceptional, with easy access to the coast (30-minute drive), Haywards Heath mainline station 6.8 miles (London Victoria 44 minutes), Gatwick Airport 15 miles and the M23 11 miles.
