Full description

EPC - F. An imposing turreted wing of late Victorian origin with south facing views towards farmland and the South Downs from the first and second floors. The property has undergone modernisation and refurbishment whilst retaining features typical of the era. The property is approached by a gabled entrance porch opening to a part vaulted entrance hall and a ground floor cloakroom. The elegant dual aspect sitting room has a fine open fireplace with a marble slip and hearth plus dining section within the turret area. The large kitchen/breakfast room has been beautifully fitted including a Rayburn and a range of units incorporating a deep Belfast sink unit. The adjoining utility room has a twin bowl Belfast sink and is well fitted with storage cupboards and worktops.

Situation

The first and second floor accommodation is approached via an inner hall with a useful understairs storage cupboard. On the first floor is the exceptionally large master bedroom with its turreted end and south and west facing views, off which is a stylishly re-fitted en suite shower room with underfloor heating. The two other bedrooms on this floor are served by a bathroom (also with underfloor heating) which has been re-fitted in a period style with a fine roll topped bath on ball and claw feet with a shower over. The second floor landing leads to a cloakroom and second bedroom with eaves storage along with a vaulted and beamed turreted area enjoying magnificent panoramic views.

Outside the front boundary extends to the other side of the private driveway where there is a shingled parking area in addition to the parking immediately to the front of the house. The gardens lie to the west and south of the house principally laid to lawn with shrub borders and espaliered fruit trees including apple, pear and cherry and a productive grape vine. An extensive paved terrace adjoins the kitchen, ideal for the al fresco lifestyle. There is also a double glazed summerhouse and external power sockets.

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.
