EPC - E. This stunning property, which is believed to date back in part to the late 1700s, sits proudly in its plot of approximately 0.3 of an acre. The scale of the two formal entertaining rooms combined with the magnificent windows and delightful façade, suggest a grand and substantial house which belies the true nature of what is in fact a charming family home.
Upon entering the home you are greeted by an entrance hall which has been used as a formal dining room with a turned staircase leading to the first floor along with a wealth of character. To the right is a wonderful 378 sq ft living room filled with charm including exposed beams and a majestic inglenook fireplace. The entrance hall has doors to the cloakroom before opening up into the kitchen/breakfast room which takes in the views of the garden with peace of mind that you are able to watch your children play. To complete the downstairs space there is a study nestled centrally within the heart of the home.
The staircase with its exposed beam work leads to a large landing with a window allowing plenty of natural light to flood in. There are four good size bedrooms along with a family shower room.
Outside, the property offers plenty of parking and a carriage style driveway as well as an area of lawn and raised flowerbeds, all enclosed with a stone wall. Adjacent to the driveway is the detached double garage. This substantial building also offers a mezzanine level and good size workshop. There is also an attached greenhouse and shed.
To the rear of the house there is a large sweeping lawn, and summer house all well enclosed providing excellent seclusion.

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.
