A rare opportunity to acquire this 16th century character cottage located in the heart of the revered village of Warnham. Formerly three attached dwellings, Bay Cottage is now a Grade II listed detached property and has an abundance of character features, many of which are original, including exposed beams and joinery, leaded windows throughout, and feature fireplaces including a magnificent inglenook to the main sitting room. Sitting under a classic Horsham stone roof, the property is of attractive brick and stone construction with half tile hung elevations to the front, and the rear elevation shows characteristic oak beam framework. The accommodation, in brief, comprises an entrance hall, a good sized sitting room, inner hall with cloakroom, separate dining room (affectionately known as the parlour) and a cottage style kitchen. On the first floor there is a large double master bedroom with semi-vaulted ceiling and built-in walnut wardrobe cupboards, two further bedrooms, an occasional fourth bedroom/dressing room and the bathroom. Equally delightful are the glorious cottage style gardens to the rear which incorporate a number of landscaped features including a herb garden, various seating areas and a lawned garden. Situated in the rear garden is a large studio and attached workshop.
