Courtney Green are delighted to be offering for sale this Grade II listed character house, believed to date from the late 16th century. The original building was designed to receive a Horsham slab roof and was built in three unequal bays. The property exhibits many fine features of the era including a wealth of exposed beams to most rooms, lovely inglenook fireplace as well as Victorian style fireplaces in the bedrooms. The main bedroom has a superb vaulted ceiling and the accommodation is quite light and spacious. On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms, a bathroom and separate shower room. On the ground floor there is an entrance porch opening to a hall, a spacious living room and a dining room with the inglenook fireplace. A large kitchen/family room to the rear provides ample space to congregate. In addition there is a cloakroom with a utility area. Outside, to the front, a five-bar gate leads to a crazy paved drive providing hard standing and leads to a large detached garage. The property enjoys an area of garden to the front which overlooks the Common and to the rear there is a private garden with lawn and shrub beds. Historically, Willow Cottage and the adjoining Beaulieu Cottage were the former Dog & Bacon Inn and became private dwellings in the 1900's.
