Middle Cottage has been beautifully restored and refurbished by the current owner, to include new electrics, new central heating, new windows and roof, new insulation and decor, new fireplace, increased off road parking to front and a landscaped, resin-bound rear courtyard garden with a well and rendered surrounding walls.
The layout has also been revised, to convert the original rear garage to form a vaulted kitchen/breakfast room opening on to the courtyard garden, as well as reducing the size of the original bathroom, to create a study area on the landing.
One enters via the front door into an entrance lobby, with a further door to the sitting room, with a window to front, brick open fireplace with display shelves to side and recesses, and an opening to the rear hall.
The rear hall has the stair well to the first floor, under stairs cupboard, windows and door to the rear courtyard, and provides access to a cloakroom, comprising a WC, basin, window to rear and the wall mounted central heating boiler.
Also off the rear hall is the vaulted kitchen/breakfast room, enjoying windows and door to the rear courtyard, plus further window with views across the property to the rear towards open countryside.
The kitchen comprises a range of off-white cupboards and drawers, with wood block worktops, inset sink, range cooker, dishwasher, plus a central island containing a fridge, freezer and wine cooler, plus space for further American style fridge/freezer. The exposed beams above form a lovely feature within the vaulted roofline, and there is a drop down ladder to a small mezzanine area at one end.
Also on the ground floor is a further reception room/third bedroom, with a former fireplace and a window to front.
The first floor provides a spacious open landing with space for a desk, with a window to rear enjoying countryside views beyond the property to the rear, and access to the loft (not inspected).
There are two double bedrooms, both with windows to front enjoying countryside views, and the master bedroom having a wall of fitted wardrobes with sliding doors.
The bathroom is still a generous size, complete with modern tiling and fittings, with black taps and trim, comprising a WC, basin and large walk-in shower, grey tiled walls and floor, window to rear and heated towel rail.
Outside, the front garden has been transformed into off road parking for two vehicles, with the front of the property partially rendered, with tile hanging above and an overhauled slate tiled roof.
The rear courtyard is wall enclosed, and completely private. It has been levelled, with a resin bound base, feature well with lighting, and all the walls have been rendered, for a crisp, contemporary look, providing ample space for entertaining and ideal for alfresco dining. There is a gate to the rear, with pedestrian access back to East Street.
The house is situated in East Street, approximately 1 mile from the 16th Century beauty of Mayfield High Street.
