Full description

Dating back to 1827 this substantial family house offers any purchaser a 'change of lifestyle' opportunity to buy a character property with adjoining village store and post office.

Our vendors who have run the business for 15 years have turned the store into a thriving convenience store that is pivotal to the village and the surrounding area. Full trading accounts will be made available to interested parties after an initial inspection.

The living accommodation is accessed via the double height entrance hall with doors opening off to the two principle receptions both with restored, working inglenook fireplaces and beamed ceilings. The kitchen/breakfast room enjoys rear garden views via the French doors opening onto the large patio. The ground floor continues to a well appointed shower room with large walk in shower enclosure, separate cloakroom and a utility/boot room. Finally there is a 'chill out' double aspect TV room.

On the first floor the galleried landing gives access to the 4 double bedrooms all which enjoy open field views to the front aspect with a good sized family bathroom.



The property has a large rear garden terrace which is ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining. This leads into a large expanse of level lawn which is well presented with a selection of beds and borders with mature shrubs trees and planting making a superb recreational space for a growing family.


Barns Green is approximately 5 miles from Horsham town centre whilst Christs Hospital with its extensive sports facilities and mainline railways station are approx 2.5 miles distant.

Why live in Horsham?

Horsham strikes the perfect balance with its community facilities and green spaces. There’s a market square at The Carfax complete with traditional bandstand, an abundance of shops, a cinema, theatre, leisure centre and a 60-acre park right in the centre of town.

We have an impressive mix of older properties, including historic buildings from the 1400s and 1500s with later additions from the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras and some stunning artistic properties. Head out along The Causeway and you’ll see every style, from 15th century homes to new builds, on one superb road.

Horsham has many great schools, both state and private, junior and senior. Millais, Tanbridge House, Farlington, Windlesham House, St Marys and Heron Way all have excellent Ofsted ratings and have received equally positive reviews from pupils and parents. There’s a good range of shopping here too, including high street favourites and independent stores and coffee shops. You’ll also find a huge selection of eateries, bars, cafés and pubs in the town and a particularly high density of restaurants along East Street that has given rise to its nickname, ‘Eat Street’.

We have a great tradition of sports in Horsham and, more importantly, of supporting our local teams. Our town is the proud host of Sussex Cricket Club, which frequently plays on the Horsham Cricket Club grounds while the local cricket, football and rugby teams also attract great crowds on match days. If you like walking in beautiful countryside you’ll be spoilt for choice in Horsham while the Southwater Country Park has a Dinosaur Island play area for young families and kayaking and canoeing facilities for older children. The Pavilions in the Park leisure centre has indoor and outdoor heated pools and an aerial adventure course with ropes and a climbing wall. For more cultural pursuits, the Capitol Theatre and Cinema on North Street has a busy calendar of both theatrical productions and the latest movies.
