The ‘Colonial Collection’, an executive range of luxury four and five bedroom homes offering between 2,600 and 3,100 sqft of living space has now be released for sale by Countryside. With spacious, flexible living accommodation all within the sought after area of Broadbridge Heath near Horsham, these superior homes offer the dream lifestyle for families looking to take that next step up on the property ladder.

The new homes form part of St Irvyne’s, the second phase of properties by Countryside at Wickhurst Green which combines traditional styling with mature landscaping surrounded by modern amenities. The internal courtyards, terraces off a variety of rooms, balconies and gardens create a seamless tradition from indoor to outdoor living. In every home, the quality and attention to detail is paramount and the superb specification and light, contemporary layouts reflect this.

Tony Travers, Managing Director of the New Homes & Communities division at Countryside comments: “Each home within the St Irvyne’s development has been designed with timeless style and exceptional attention to detail. The blend of traditional and colonial style exteriors with the mature landscaped environment harmonises with the surrounding beauty and distinctive character of West Sussex. Our first phase of Wickhurst Green, ‘Great Oaks’, has been so successful that we are very excited and extremely proud to be bringing this Colonial Collection of homes to Broadbridge Heath.”

St Irvyne’s showcases a superb range of exquisite homes, all beautifully arranged in a picturesque village style development. The four and five bedroom executive homes benefit from grand entrance halls, impressive staircases, chimneys and feature glazing to front and rear elevations, generous living spaces and french doors opening out onto beautiful gardens. With a collection of two, three and four bedroom cottages also available, St Irvyne’s is an impressive choice for homebuyers.

The four bedroom Glenwood exudes character, both inside and out and is a stunning example of The Colonial Collection. On the ground floor, the grand entrance hall leads to a spacious living room which opens out onto a beautiful rear garden. The adjoining kitchen and dining area is a welcoming family space. Also downstairs is a cloakroom and storage space and separate utility room leading to the double garage.

As you move your way up to the first floor, you are presented with two staircases; one up to the main floor which boasts a master bedroom with private balcony, dressing room and en suite shower and bath room, along with a second double bedroom and family bathroom. The other staircase takes you to a private guest or au pair suite, complete with en suite shower room, and impressive feature beams, completed by beautiful contemporary glazing. Back to the main house, and up on the third floor is a further impressive guest suite. This beautiful room boasts a Juliette balcony, large storage cupboard (ideal as a walk in wardrobe) and a large en suite shower room.

Neighbouring Horsham boasts great schools in and around the area, including Shelley Primary which is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and is within walking distance of the development. The secondary schools and colleges in Horsham include Tanbridge House School and Millais, which is one of the leading specialist all-girls secondary schools in the country with an enviable reputation for academic success and was rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted in 2010. Farlington is also an outstanding independent girls' day and boarding school located just outside Horsham, where 57% of all A level grades achieved were at A/A.

There are also a number of independent schools nearby including Christ’s Hospital, a co-educational boarding and day school for 11-18 year olds, which is one of the oldest schools in the country and was established in 1552 by King Edward VI.
