A particularly spacious architect designed detached chalet house occupying a rural position on the southern side of Billingshurst with open fields to both front and rear. The gated entrance leads to a large driveway and timber garage, and a good size front garden laid to lawn with flower and shrubs borders plus very well established hedgerows providing excellent seclusion. The front door takes you into a reception hall with cloakroom and staircase to the first floor. All rooms both ground and first floor are very generous in size with the lounge/dining room being 24'6 x 15'8 and a large 20'6 x 19'5 kitchen/breakfast room with Aga and separate utility room. The ground floor double bedroom has a large en-suite shower room and upstairs there are two further bedrooms, the first one measuring 25'11 x 12'11 and the smallest is 16' x 13'8. There is an equally generous bathroom.
Outside the rear garden backs onto open fields and is mainly laid to lawn, again with some flower beds and there is a paved patio adjacent to the rear of the chalet. The property also benefits from gas fired central heating and double glazed, and presented in good order. This unique property offers scope for the manipulation of rooms internally as there is plenty of space to play with.
The property is situated some 2 miles from the charming rural village of Billingshurst which oozes architectural and historical interest straddling the Roman road known as Stane Street. Its thriving high street sits on one of the longest straight roads in Sussex and is home to many character buildings such as The Six Bells coaching inn being one of the oldest in the village. There are secondary, infant and junior schools, leisure centre and a mainline railway station to London/Victoria making this an ideal location for family living and commuters alike. The larger provincial centre of Horsham and Gatwick International Airport are approximately 7 and 21.5 miles away respectively.

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.
