Property description

Tenure: Freehold

GRADE II LISTED | A rare opportunity to acquire an historic 17th century home, requiring full restoration and renovation within the West Sussex village of West Hoathly.

The Barn... - An intriguing opportunity to acquire a beautiful Grade II listed former Tithe barn on a highly secluded plot of just under an acre (not measured), on the fringe of the quintessential Sussex village of West Hoathly.

Lower Barn extends to approx 2,300 sq ft and is believed to originally date from around the 16th century and historically belonged to St Pancras Priory at Southover, Lewes, which was attached to the nearby Priest House.

The barn now requires full renovation but offers an exciting restoration opportunity for a discerning purchaser looking to acquire a piece of local history and create a truly stunning family home.

Internally, the majority of the property is a stunning 58ft barn with impressive, vaulted ceiling and a wealth of exposed beams and enormous Inglenook fireplace. This space was previously used to host theatre shows and could be transformed into an exceptional open plan living space. The volume provides the opportunity for a potential mezzanine or creation of a first floor (subject to any necessary consents). The exposed beams, lead light windows and solid wood doors provide a wealth of character

Further current accommodation includes a kitchen/diner, two double bedrooms (both with open fireplaces), bathroom, store room and a mezzanine storage level (temporary structure). Above these rooms is a further large loft space with vaulted ceiling. There is a small cellar that is accessed from the garden.

We would recommend any intending purchasers take the advice of the necessary specialists (mortgage broker, conservation officer, surveyor, architect etc) before proceeding with any offer or purchase.

Step Outside... - The plot extends to approximately just under one acre and is very established with an array of tree and shrubs. The main garden area enjoys a favoured westerly aspect meaning there is plenty of afternoon/evening sun and overlooks adjoining fields.

West Hoathly itself is a beautifully quintessential Sussex village with an array a gorgeous period homes and the Grade I listed St Margaret's Church that dates from as far back as the 1100.
