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.
