Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situation: Findon is north of Worthing in a valley between South Down hills. To the east lies Cissbury Ring, an Iron Age hill-fort just beneath which is Nepcote Green, scene of countless sheep fairs since the Middle Ages. It is a favoured small village, the tiny heart of which is The Square formed of close-built buildings mainly of 18th Century and earlier origin within the Conservation Area.

Approximate Distances: Findon is about four miles north of Worthing on the east side of A24 London road. It is about 16 miles from Horsham and 57 miles from central London.

The Building might well have been an ancient cruck-framed barn originally and over the years it has changed greatly. The building was for many years the well-known village store and following the retirement of the owner it is offered with vacant possession.

Services: All main services are connected or available.
