Offered for sale for the first time since 1948 this semi-detached house was originally built by the local authority but was acquired by the then tenants in the 1960's and was the village Post Office through the 1980s. Now in need of full modernisation, the house has plenty of scope for both improvement and enlargement and occupies a generous plot with plenty of parking and of course a garage. Arranged over two floors the accommodation comprises an entrance hall, a sitting room which has been enlarged into the former dining room and there is a good-sized kitchen/breakfast room/utility. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a bathroom with a separate WC. Being within the heart of the village, the house is just a stone's throw from the amenities but also is directly opposite the local cricket ground. The gardens are a shadow of their former splendour but those with green fingers will enjoy rejuvenating this large and delightful feature. There will be no ongoing chain and the vendor's sole agents thoroughly recommend an internal inspection.
SITUATION: Slinfold is a much sought after and picturesque village almost midway between Billingshurst and Horsham (both have direct railway services to Victoria/London Bridge). The ancient St Peter’s Church and the highly regarded C E Primary School occupy central locations. For older children there is The Weald comprehensive school in Billingshurst and Tanbridge House secondary school in Horsham. Pennthorpe (mixed) and Farlington (girls) private schools are a short car journey away. There is a village store/post office and the well patronised Red Lyon Public House. Bus services to Horsham and Guildford run through the middle of the village and local sporting facilities include golf at Slinfold Park, and there are football, cricket and tennis clubs in the village and sports centres at Christ's Hospital and Broadbridge Heath.

The property is accessed by a pair of decorative iron gates and this leads to the tarmacadam driveway turning area where there is space for 3 or 4 vehicles along with an extra area of lawn to the front enclosed by a mixed hedgerow. The side driveway area extends beyond the house onto a concrete base where there is aLarge Single Garage
of pre-fabricated construction with a single up and over door to the front. To the right hand side is the pipe which aids filling of the oil storage tank which is situated at the rear of the garage.The Garden
itself is a tremendously appealing feature of the house being approximately 100 foot in length and a complete blank canvas for a budding gardener. There are two sheds and two greenhouses and we have pictures on file which show the garden previously as being incredibly well stocked and with productive beds. The garden enjoys an almost directly southerly orientation and enjoys a very high degree of privacy. Outside tap to front and outside water supply to rear, outside light point.Agents Notes:
There are other examples of this house type that we have sold over the years where the loft area has been converted into accommodation. We believe this would be possible subject to the usual consents permissions and approvals being obtainable. The property has its own gas supply but there is no meter fitted as this has not been connected by any gas supplier.Referral Fees:
