Tenure: Freehold

Beautifully presented with a wealth of period detail and featuring a wonderful 18th century barn/studio, this is a substantial detached 5/6 bedroom listed Grade II home set in a charming garden of approx 0.5 acre

Believed to date from around 1580 with later additions, Hammonds offers a rare chance to acquire a substantial period home with barn enjoying good access to the centre of Billingshurst. Featuring many of the period features one would associate with a property of this age (eg beams, inglenook fireplace and Horsham stone roof) this is a home of immense charm and character with generous accommodation and potential for ancillary accommodation (subject to planning).

The Ground Floor has a delightful 19'7 x 18`9 sitting room (formerly 3 rooms) with a striking inglenook and a wealth of exposed beams creating a wonderful area for entertaining. There is a separate dual aspect dining room or family room with wood burner and an exposed brick wall .

This leads to a charming farmhouse style kitchen / breakfast room with beams and Aga. The kitchen overlooks the well screened garden and leads into a rear porch with glazed panels and space for coats and boots. An inner rear lobby leads to a cloakroom and a generously proportioned utility room .

The First Floor has a flexible arrangement with a principal bedroom, wardrobes and a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom. There is a family bathroom, 4 further bedrooms (one currently used as a study and one smaller single leading off bedroom 4).

There are exposed beams and 2 staircases leading to a loft area and attic bedroom / loft room accessed via an oak hatch.

Barn /Annex : In the grounds adjacent to the property is a magnificent 18th century four bay barn restored in 2000 and currently providing exceptional space as a studio /workshop. With full height windows, double doors to the gardens and a wealth of beams this might appeal to an artist, hobbyist, as a home office or games room .The barn has potential scope as ancillary accommodation for a dependent relative and might make a wonderful annex (subject to obtaining any of the necessary consents and regulations).

The plot is surprisingly large and extends in all to approximately 0.5 acre. Approached by a gravel driveway with parking and turning space a path leads to the barn and the rear garden. The front garden is raised and lawned with a central path and well stocked beds. The rear garden has a large formal lawn (with a gardener's WC), an orchard and a shaded informal garden.

.he well screened garden leads round the house to a large west facing paved sun terrace ('The Garth') plus a wild flower garden with well stocked borders and beds. There are 2 artesian wells.

To the rear of the garden there is access to a public footpath out to countryside and a park.

The property is ideally situated within several minute's walk of the centre of Billingshurst. The town has a vibrant high street with supermarket, restaurants, post office and banks and there is a well equipped leisure centre with pool and gym.

There is a mainline train station serving London and the South Coast as well as good road links with the A272, A29 and A24.

Notable schools in the local area include The Weald Community School, Christ's Hospital, Farlington Girls School and Penthorpe.

Recreational facilities include playing fields with cricket and football at The Jubilee Fields, Golf at Slinfold and West Chiltington, Racing at Fontwell and Goodward, sailing at Bosham and Chichester and Polo at Cowdrey Park.

The larger towns of Horsham and Guildford with their comprehensive shopping facilities and theatres and cinemas are approximately 7.7 and 18.9 miles distant respectively.
