Without doubt, one of the most elegant Grade II listed period homes in the heart of this sought after picturesque village with the additional benefit of having been thoughtfully restored with large rooms, a generous South facing garden and extensive off road parking and garage.
The most beautiful Grade II Listed village house opposite the Church and a former Tap House believed to have been built in the mid 1600's or late 1700's, the house has been fully restored by the present owners and has exposed timbers and character features in almost every room. Bold proportions and an almost South facing garden and off-street parking make this a very unusual old home. Five bedrooms, luxurious bathroom and shower room, three reception rooms, fabulous kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, and a South facing 100 ft garden, off-street parking and garage.

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 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.
