Situation : Beautifully situated in quiet wooded surroundings amidst land owned by the Barlavington Estate in the rural hamlet of Coates (Fittleworth) , No 4 forms a substantial wing of Coates Castle which is a striking Grade II Listed castellated mansion dating from the early 1800's.
History has seen many famous visitors including Winston Churchill and during the second world war when it was requisitioned for the army. Built by John King in the Strawberry Hill Gothic style, he sold the property to George Wyndham, the 3rd Lord Egremont of Petworth House, whose coat of arms appears above the original main entrance.
The property lies well back from a country lane and is discretely approached by a long shared private driveway leading past woodland to a secluded setting close to countryside which offers superb and convenient access for walking to occupants of the castle. Nearby is Fittleworth with its village shop, local inn, Primary School and many wonderful walks.

Safeguarding your information
Important information regarding cybercrime. We are aware that computer hackers are seeking to target property transactions to access funds. As we understand it, they will either hack a phone, tablet or PC, maybe by sending out a random email which mistakenly gets opened, or even whilst opening a website, which gives them access to that machine.
The reason for us mentioning this is to you is to alert you that once they have gained access, they can monitor email correspondence, without you knowing, throughout a transaction. Then, at a relevant point, e.g. just before exchange of contracts, they can send an email to a client mirroring that of their solicitor asking for funds to be transferred to a certain bank account. That money then, of course, disappears.
Fortunately, we have not had such an instance but, feel it important to highlight the fact that if you do receive an email requesting funds, it is worth double checking with the person concerned by phone that it is genuine and the bank details are correct, before sending money. This could, of course, affect other areas of finance beyond property. Many solicitors are starting to highlight this point now, but for safety, we would urge you to be vigilant and check before sending money or passing on any personal details regarding any bank or credit card information.
Referral Fees We may inform (on request) clients and prospective purchasers details of local services. These may include mortgages, conveyancing, general planning advice, surveys and valuations, estate agency services and removals.
Our policy is that we do not take referral fees for these introductions - except under the following circumstances : Should a person (introduced by us) to the mortgage or conveyancing services of London & Country Mortgages (L&C) - L&C will pay us 25% of any payment they receive from mortgage lenders. If that person engages the services of their recommended conveyancer, L&C will pay us £100 plus VAT for each completed sale and/or purchase instruction.
