Steps House has that fabulous mix of old Period charm and character, plus modern touches and open plan principle accommodation making the most of the views via bi-fold doors to the rear. The comprehensive redesign and extension work was carried out by the current owners in 2007, which included a major redesign of the rear garden to include a sweeping driveway and landscaping of the rear garden.
One enters via an Oak framed porch to the open plan family room/dining room/kitchen, tastefully decorated with windows to front, side and bi-fold doors to the rear garden and patio. Within the family room are sets of built-in cupboards, oak flooring with under floor heating and steps up to the dining area, with matching bi-fold doors to the rear garden and magnificent views, oak flooring with under floor heating, plus a range of cupboards beneath the breakfast bar. Door to an under-stairs cupboard, also housing the under floor heating systems.
The kitchen opens on to this room, with a further window to rear and superb views, and a range of cream gloss fronted cupboards and drawers, black granite worktops, integrated double sinks and etched drainer, five ring ceramic hob with extractor above, chest level oven, grill and warming drawer, dish washer and fridge/freezer. Slate tiled floor with under floor heating and access to the larder cupboard and into the rear hall.
From the rear hall, there is a door to the cloakroom, comprising a WC and sink, plus an office, with window to front and side, beamed ceiling and oak flooring. The utility room is also off this hallway, with windows to front, side and a door to rear. Cupboards and drawers beneath oak worktops, plus floor to ceiling cupboards, butler sink, space for washing machine and tumble dryer, slate tiled floor.

A door leads to the sitting room, within the original part of the house, with an exposed brick inglenook, oak bressumer, wood burner, oak flooring, white painted ceiling beams with three glass panels to increase natural light and two windows to front.
The first floor has a wonderful open landing with large roof lights, oak flooring and is a very bright open space with doors to all four bedrooms.

There is a large wall of fitted wardrobes, French doors to a south facing balcony with amazing views over the Rother Valley to the South, step up to a dressing area and sliding door to a generous en-suite, comprising a modern roll top bath, walk-in shower with a glass screen, WC and basin within the dormer window with lovely views.
The guest bedroom is a wonderful vaulted room, again with the views to rear and a wall of fitted wardrobes and cupboards, plus a landing area with further wardrobes and a door to a store cupboard, which could form an en-suite if required.
Two further double bedrooms are at the front of the house; one with a chimney breast and oak flooring, the other with a mezzanine area, forming a perfect teenage den/study area.
The family bathroom is a large room, comprising a panelled bath, glass shower cubicle, WC and two basins, part tiled walls, windows to front and rear.
Outside, to the front facing Fletching Street, there is a small gravel area with steps leading up to a front path leading to the driveway and a further path to the side. The path is edged with flower beds and box hedging with a gate to the parking area.

To the other side of the rear driveway, is a landscaped area with several terraces, including flower beds, an area for a greenhouse, espalier fruit trees and areas for vegetables.
