Burgess Hill’s second oldest house on the market


A former farm house, believed to be the second oldest house in Burgess Hill is on the market for £1.65m.

Dating from the sixteenth century, Theobalds Farmhas been billed as a ‘particularly important building of more than special interest’.

The property, on Theobolds Road, is a Grade II listed house.

A spokeswoman for Savills in Haywards Heath, the estate agent handling the sale, said: “Of particular note is the seventeenth century western wing, with its facade of mathematical tiles and symmetrical sash windows with red brick window dressings; typical of the Georgian era.An original front door, studded with the date 1627, opens to the entrance hall and in turn an inner hallway, off which lies the majority of the ground floor accommodation and from which there is understair access to the cellar.”
