3 Highfield is a substantial five-bedroom wing of this elegant and impressive period property with living accommodation (3509 sq. ft) arranged over two floors, the ground floor (with potential to extend) and the lower ground floor.

Situated in a peaceful and tranquil semi-rural setting on the spur of the North Downs ‘Highfield’ an historic Victorian manor house, is surrounded by open fields and ancient bluebell woods and is approached by a sweeping driveway with bordering woodland and specimen shrubbery.

The property is approached via wide steps to a pretty semi-circular raised terrace with courtesy lights and a beautiful wood and stained-glass front door with stained glass side windows.

Built in 1881 by the architect Spencer Chadwick, ‘Highfield House’ in the Parish of Shoreham was his country estate until 1897, when it was sold to a prominent and influential local family. Sir Herbert Cohen died in 1968 without a direct heir and subsequently the entire Highfield Estate was sold, and the house divided into four luxury apartments each with their own secluded private gardens, extensive guest and resident parking and double garages en-bloc.
