Full description

A wing of a manor house situated in the hidden gem of a private estate, Hawkhurst court. East House forms part of a manor house and is located on the Hawkhurst Court estate in the heart of the Sussex Weald. Hawkhurst Court itself has had a varied past, including being the headquarters of troops during the Second World War. Later, Hawkhurst Court became an independent school and after its closure it was converted to private residential homes. The house and gardens have been lovingly looked after over the years and provides versatile space for a new buyer to put their mark on it. The high ceilings, large windows and view over the gardens are part of the characterful charm this house has to offer. The private driveway leads you to the front of the house with ample parking and a double car port with storage. The main reception room is a good size with patio doors leading outside and a large brick fireplace. The dining room is off the kitchen which provides ample space for a large dining room table and has potential to create a more open plan kitchen/diner if required. The study houses the 2nd staircase and another set of doors leading to a walled garden.From the main staircase there are three bedrooms, the main is on the first floor which has walk-through wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. On the second floor are two further bedrooms plus a bathroom. The staircase from the study leads to the final bedroom which is double aspect and looks over the gardens and has an en-suite shower room.Outside the garden has been well maintained, with plenty of shrubs and trees. The main part of the garden is to the front of the house, which is mainly laid to lawn with a large, paved terrace. At the bottom of the garden there is a useful workshop and greenhouse. From the study patio doors there is a further walled garden with a patio area and another walled garden to the side of the house which is mainly laid to lawn.

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.
