Meadows is a delightful characterful home located in one of Billingshurst's most prestigious locations. Having been in the same family for many decades now the property needs a new owner who is prepared to update and improve the house for many years to come. Believed to have been built as a farm workers cottage, the property is arranged over two floors and comprises an entrance hall, living room, separate dining room which forms part of an earlier extension, kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, ground floor bathroom and a lean to utility lobby. Upstairs there are 3 nicely proportioned bedrooms all of which have partly vaulted ceilings and feature the original windows and their hand made ironmongery. The property occupies a decent sized plot which has a large area to the side extending to some 47 feet or so and there is cottage style gardens to both the front and rear and a garage with decent off road parking. We believe there may be further potential to enlarge this property subject to the usual consents being obtainable. In all then, a lovely blank canvas for the lucky buyer, offered for sale with no chain and viewings are strongly recommended by the vendors' sole agents Courtney Green.
Billingshurst is a large village situated in the heart of The Weald, surrounded by open countryside and with an excellent range of shopping facilities, schooling for all age groups including the Ofsted "Outstanding" Weald Community School and Sixth Form College. There is a mainline railway station with a train service into Victoria (about 65 minutes). The large market town of Horsham, with its pedestrianised shopping mall, John Lewis at Home, arts centre and leisure facilities, lies about 7½ miles to the north east and there are excellent road links to both the M25 and M23, with Gatwick International Airport and London being about 21½ and 43 miles respectively.

The property has a particularly wide plot which extends to around 47 feet and there is a lawned area which from the side extends to the front where there is a paved pathway leading to the front door and with a pedestrian gate out on to Marringdean Road.
The rear garden is a little over 30 feet long and has a paved area and a pretty area to the left behind the garage and there is also a coal house/workshop about 7'1 x 7. The roof is in a very decrepit state and it is our advice that this building should only be viewed from the outside through the doorway. Attached to the workshop is a second shed which was formerly a coal hole and the roof is in a similar state of disrepair. In addition there is a generous gravel driveway which in turn leads to a oversized single garage. The garden is enclosed by newly erected lapped fencing. From the driveway area there is a rose and crab apple clad pergola and a pathway which leads to the front door from the garage.
Garage 16'7 x 12'
