Bines Farm Barn

Bines Farm Barn is an impressive modern conversion of a 17th century flint and timber barn with outstanding panoramic views to the South Downs. The property is in the village of Partridge Green, between the market towns of Horsham and Steyning in West Sussex, and comes with a range of outbuildings. This includes a new ancillary property built on the site of a former agricultural barn and a Victorian block providing garaging and storage. At the rear of the property, the land and paddocks gradually slope down, leading to and fronting the River Adur.

Savills Bines Farm Barn 1

Formerly part of Bines Farm, the barn was acquired in 2003 by the current owners, who undertook a sympathetic and comprehensive conversion to create a spacious home that celebrates the beauty of the barn and its original materials, with exposed flintwork and the original oak beams enhanced by oak flooring, white painted plasterwork and contemporary kitchen and bathroom fittings.

The property offers a versatile layout which is well suited to both family life and to multi-generational living, with potential to be arranged as one six-bedroom or two three-bedroom homes. In addition, the detached ancillary building offers further potential to create a separate three-bedroom home or, for example, a games room with home office and flat above.

It is open to the dual aspect kitchen/ breakfast room, which has an excellent range of bespoke painted wood cabinets under black granite worktops, a four oven oil fired Aga, separate electric oven and hob, integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer, and a space for table and chairs or a sofa.

From the entrance hall, an oak staircase with glass balustrade rises to the mezzanine office and walkway. To the south lies the principal bedroom with a dressing area, en suite bathroom and wonderful views to the Downs. Beyond the office is bedroom two, a vaulted room with an en suite dressing room, which could be changed to a further bedroom or en suite bathroom if required.

Beyond the sitting room on the ground floor is bedroom three, which has an en suite with a large walk-in shower, basin and WC. The rear hall leads to the eastern former dairy wing which is currently incorporated into the main accommodation but could be used as a separate self-contained annexe. This comprises two further en suite ground floor bedrooms and an open plan living room with sliding doors to the side garden and pond. There are stairs up to a further bedroom/attic storage which currently connects to the dressing room of bedroom two. 

The barn is approached via a long private driveway, with an electronically operated steel frame wooden clad gate giving secure access. At the top of the drive is the recently developed two-storey timber-framed detached outbuilding with attached garaging on the site of the former Dutch barn. The driveway leads on past the property to a Victorian former outbuilding which offers covered pen bay parking and storage. To the east of the house is a courtyard garden, with a large pond, stocked with carp, lilies and iris, with an adjoining lawn and orchard.

The paddocks lie mainly to the south of the house and are currently arranged as fenced paddocks, one with mobile timber stables with water and power connected, and one with a field shelter. From the main paddocks, there is a separate meadow that leads on to the bank of the River Adur. In total, the land extends to about 9.95 acres.
