Billhurst Farm is a beautifully presented Grade II Listed Georgian house built in about 1720. The house has been in the same ownership for the last 40 years and has been a much loved family home. The original Georgian part of the house has a traditional square layout in keeping with its age and there are an abundance of original features, including high ceilings, sash windows, exposed beams and of particular note, a wonderful inglenook fireplace in the drawing room. In 1983, the current owners extended the rear of the property to incorporate the brightand airy kitchen/dining room with French doors leading out to the delightful south facing terrace and gardens beyond.Upstairs there are six bedrooms including the master bedroom suite which has a dressing area and large en suite bathroom. There is a separate family bathroom in addition. Within the grounds of the house, adjacent to the enclosed outdoor swimming pool, is a separate self-contained ConvertedBarn, which features a stunning vaulted reception room with sprung wooden floor and wood-burning stove.
Billhurst Farm sits well in its stunning gardens and grounds which extend to just under 8 acres in total. The house is located just off the village green with the driveway leading up past two large ponds sitting to the front of the property on its northerly aspect. These ponds, which are within the curtilage of the house, provide a delightful haven for ducks and heron, and are divided by a York stone causeway and sit behind a mid-height brick wall with a gate.The formal gardens and paddock lie on the southern side of the house with a splendid terrace at the back which can be accessed from both the drawing room and the kitchen. The study and breakfast room both face east and look out on to an enchanting parterre, whilst on the westerly side of the terrace anoutdoor seating area, with pergola clad in mature wisteria, makes an ideal spot for alfresco dining. From this terrace a pathway flanked by giant box balls leads down to the walled outdoor swimming pool, the Converted Barn dating back to about 1690, and the large additional outbuilding. The barn is a wonderful addition to the house with its a fabulous vaulted reception room, sprung wooden floor and wood-burning stove, andwould make wonderful pied a terre for an elderly relative or as overflow guest accommodation.The remainder of the formal gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a split level and an area of orchard. A secluded astro turf tennis court enjoys a peaceful spot along the western boundary of the property. There is also a large paddock beyond, extending to circa 5.4 acres.The gardens and paddock will be subject to an overage clause for any future development of the site.
