Stanbridge Grange, Staplefield

Just off to the right of the road from Staplefield to Five Cross Ways, Warninglid lies Stanbridge Grange, an impressive residence with a stone roof slightly raised above the main aspect looking over the large lawn to a pond in the distance.
The rockery at the edge of the lawn looks fairly new, and seems to have only young plants, many with their labels still on view.

Comments:
We lived next door to this lovely house built in the Arts and Crafts style it had (has?) Horsham Stone roof tiles.
In the 1950s it belonged to a Mr Cooper, rumoured to be a retired tea planter, who presided over a magnificently laid-out garden tended to by about five gardeners including John Robins, father of one this website's contributors.
After Mr Cooper died in the early 1960s the house was bought by Mr W. H. Scott-Aide who I think owned some kind of Scottish clothing outfit in London.
