VENDOR'S COMMENTS My wife and I were looking for a character property that we could make our own. In the time we have lived at South Barn we have improved the house and garden. It is a fantastic space in a country setting with the convenience of Crawley and Horsham just around the corner offering shopping, restaurants, cinema, sports facilities, schools etc, in addition to Gatwick Airport, the M25 and main line train stations all within a 3-15 minute drive. We love our garden which gives us the space for entertaining as well as to sit have a drink and enjoy! In the winter the house is cosy with the log burner blazing away. We both currently work from home the majority of the time which is easy as we have the convenience of super -fast broadband. The villages of Lambs Green and Rusper are around the corner, and they have great pubs and places to walk the dog. We have lived here with our dog for over 5 1/2 years with the previous occupiers here for 20 years before us. The impact of the Covid pandemic being the only reason we are having to sell!
