'Ashwood' is an attractive home providing an excellent opportunity for those wishing to purchase a property with generous yet adaptable accommodation for the whole family. The welcoming entrance hall has a ground floor cloakroom and staircase leading to the first floor with a deep understairs storage cupboard. The cosy sitting room enjoys outlook and casement doors to the rear garden along with real effect fireplace and there is a particularly spacious separate dining room, a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a separate utility room with doors to outside and garage. On the first floor there is a generous galleried landing with access hatch to boarded roof space, built-in airing cupboard and five double bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms.
A large sweeping driveway provides parking and turning for several vehicles leading on to a double garage. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn bordered by hedgerow providing good screening and accesses either side lead to the rear garden. At the back of the property there are patio areas, an attractive pond and a good size area of lawn well enclosed by mature hedgerows and shrubs providing a high degree of privacy and seclusion. There is a very useful workshop/store, greenhouse and a detached office/play room which would appeal to those wishing to work from home or seeking separate accommodation for a dependant relative or teenager. This outbuilding is insulated and benefits from power and light, a decked verandah to the front and an area of lawned garden bordered by picket fencing.
The property is within walking distance of a local convenience store/filling station in the small hamlet of Five Oaks, which is midway between Billingshurst, Slinfold and Horsham with Billingshurst being the closer of the three. Billingshurst has a very good medical centre, a post office, excellent baker, butcher, library and supermarket as well as schooling for all ages. There is also a mainline railway station with services into London/Victoria and the south coast. The larger provincial town of Horsham is approximately 7 miles away and Gatwick International Airport is approximately 20 miles.
From our office in Billingshurst head north and straight first two roundabouts. At the third roundabout take the second exit onto the A29 and after approximately 1.5 miles the property will be found on the right hand side.

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.
