The property is located in the heart of a picturesque village which lies amongst beautiful countryside to the north of the South Downs. The popular and vibrant town of Horsham is within 5 miles and a mainline railway station with services to London Victoria is just 2 miles away. The village itself has great character and there is a fishery and campsite nearby which is set in 100 acres of lakes, woodland and pasture.
The Grade II listed house is an outstanding period property with 4 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, a bathroom, shower room, utility room and modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room. Double French doors lead to the terrace and superb rear garden with extensive areas of lawn, shrubs and trees. There is also a large outbuilding of approximately 700 sqft which is currently used mainly for storage but could also serve as a games/cinema room or den. Altogether, this is superb living accommodation on a plot of approximately half an acre providing ample opportunity for further development (subject to planning permission).
The current owners took over the village store in 2008 and, during the last 11 years, the business has built a fine reputation and enjoys great support from the local population and beyond. Together with the post office and national lottery facilities, the shop sells an extensive range of items including newspapers & magazines, alcoholic & soft drinks, tobacco, sweets, snacks, greetings cards, fruit & vegetables, delicatessen & bakery products and a selection of household & convenience goods. The most recent trading accounts show Annual Sales of £588,434 and a Gross Profit of £141,193.
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a substantial property in a lovely rural setting with a successful business already in place. Purchasers would receive a healthy income from the shop whilst enjoying the benefits of living in a very desirable village location. Such an appealing high-quality combination of house and business is rarely available and, to fully appreciate, a viewing is highly recommended.
