Full description

A fine example of a Grade II Listed farmhouse set in 1.8 acres amongst the beautiful countryside, within half a mile of the local amenities.Little Daux Farm is a charming and characterful Grade II listed property which retains many character features and in parts we believe date back as far as the 1500's with later additions in the 1800's and 1900's. The exposed beams run through the oldest parts of the house with an impressive inglenook fireplace in the snug, Sussex wood latch doors and wooden strut barn windows are just some of the original features throughout the house. The kitchen/breakfast room is dual aspect and has recently undergone a transformation to the stunning farmhouse kitchen with dual eye level ovens a large walk in pantry and adjoining utility room providing access to the garden. The sitting room is the most recent addition to the house and has an open fire place and bespoke alcoves. The ground floor is completed with the study, cloakroom and stairs down to the cellar.On the first floor the main bedroom has two built in cupboards, exposed wooden floor boards and the en-suite has been transformed to now incorporate a full walk in shower, separate bath, Jack and Jill sinks with a W.C and views over the countryside. There are then three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Two further separate staircases each lead to the second floor and to bedrooms 3 and 4.Outside the property is approached via a private road and a gravel drive set behind a five bar gate which provides ample parking along with the garage/barn which could also be converted to a potential annex subject to the usual planning applications. To the front, the property is bordered by a low brick wall, behind is a small area of lawn with flowers and shrub borders.The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs, a pathway leads to the summer house which could be used as home office. The garden is enclosed by hedging, a lower level brick wall and gates making it secure for families with pets. There are two brick stores and a greenhouse which complete the formal gardens. Adjacent to the garden is the one acre paddock with mature oak trees. The stables are attached to the back of the barn and behind this is the full size sand school. There is a public bridle way which runs up the side of the driveway and leads onto the adjoining countryside.

Why live in Billingshurst?

Billingshurst is a thriving village with a welcoming community, a pretty high street and a wealth of shops and leisure facilities. It has a quaint mixture of old and new properties, including farmhouses, timber-framed buildings, thatched cottages and modern developments. The heart of the village is in a Conservation Area, which protects and preserves the character of The Green and the local buildings, such as the row of medieval terraced houses that are set back from the main road.

Many later additions were designed to include features to reflect the medieval, Edwardian and Victorian homes in the area, such as the red brickwork and projected front gables, which add to the very distinctive style of this beautiful West Sussex village.

There are two local schools – Billingshurst Primary School and The Weald School & Sixth Form, which shares a site with the Billingshurst Leisure Centre. Other local facilities include the football and cricket pitches at Jubilee Fields, a skate park, fishing lake and lawn bowling club. The village is also home to a large library and the Billingshurst Community and Conference Centre that hosts a range of sports clubs and regular activities such as the monthly film night.

Plenty of leisure time can be enjoyed on the Wey and Arun Canal – just hop on one of the three tourist boats that run from Loxwood. There’s also an abundance of independent stores and many traditional pubs in the village, including The King’s Arms and the King’s Head and a selection of restaurants and cafés that cater for all tastes.
