One of Steyning’s most expensive properties sells within weeks

14th October 2019

We were delighted to act on behalf of the owners of Charlton Court recently, to market a stunning 7-bedroom character family home set in the beautiful Steyning countryside.  We believe this is one of the area’s most expensive and most impressive properties to be sold this year.

The residential accommodation in the manor house is full of fantastic original features such as inglenook fireplaces, beautiful beams, flagstone flooring and even a well in a delightful combination of 17th, 19th and 20th-century design. There is plenty of room for all the family to roam about or gather together, with multiple reception rooms and an annex. Also on the 12-acre site sits a heated swimming pool, expansive gardens, and several outbuildings including offices, stables and a huge Grade II listed 15th-century barn that lends itself to all manner of exciting business or leisure opportunities.

With so much on offer in this very unique property, and our marketing strategies for attracting interest before the property was listed, we weren’t surprised that there was a little healthy competition among prospective buyers, and that the result was the property selling above the asking price in just a matter of weeks of coming onto the market. And a property like this in such a fantastic location is worth every penny.

With the South Downs National Park in view, plus the bright lights of Brighton and Hove just a short drive away, or the charming town centre itself just a healthy ramble’s distance, there’s the perfect mix of the quiet life, the good life, and nightlife to enjoy. Steyning is certainly a town that embraces its history and rural location; there is never a shortage of fairs, fetes, bake-offs, gardening shows, farmers markets, beer festivals and the like. In addition, our wider area of lower West Sussex including Shoreham, Lancing, Worthing and Steyning is becoming increasingly popular, with Shoreham high on the list of places to move to for those emigrating from Brighton city life. Shoreham is developing in size and amenities and has a great coastal vibe to it and looks set to be the place to be in 2020.

Charlton Court was sold by Nick Williams and his team at our Oakley Shoreham branch in New Road. The team handle residential sales and lettings, new homes, land and commercial properties.
