A rare opportunity to acquire a detached bungalow in a private, elevated position just 100 yards from the High Street, comprising two double bedrooms, en-suite cloakroom, bathroom, kitchen, utility room and an open, split-level dining/sitting room, gardens, garage and parking space. NO CHAIN. EPC Rating D.
High Banks forms an often sought, yet seldom found detached bungalow, enjoying an elevated position with an outlook over towards the Rother Valley, all in a central, yet private location in the heart of this popular village.
The house has been well maintained by the current owners, and has the added benefit of UPVC windows and an overhauled roof. It is considered that there is ample scope to add to the property, with a garden that surrounds the property, subject to any necessary planning consents.
The property is approached via a shared, but privately owned footpath (shared with one other bungalow) off West Street. There is space for a vehicle off road in a private drive area in front of the garage which faces onto West Street.
The property is then accessed via a front door into a spacious hallway, with access to the sitting room, which is an attractive, open space, open to the sloping roof above, a large picture window to front with the outlook and a fireplace. Open to the sitting room, and on the main level is the dining room, again open to the roofline and a widow to side which looks out over the garden.
The dining room has a door to the kitchen, which comprises a range of Pine cupboards and drawers, vinyl flooring and tiled splash backs, integrated sink with drainer, window to rear looking out over the rear garden, and space for several appliances and wall to wall storage cupboard that also houses the warm-sir central heating boiler. There is a further door to a utility area, with window and door to rear garden, and further fitted cupboards, and a ceramic butler sink.
Also from the kitchen, a door returns to the entrance hall, with a door to the front facing bedroom, which has a large picture window to the front and enjoys the lovely outlook across West Street and the valley beyond, plus fitted wardrobes.
The rear bedroom is also a double, with window to side and a door to an en-suite cloakroom, comprising a WC and basin.
The bathroom is to the rear of the property, comprising a bath, separate shower, WC and basin, window to rear and part tiled walls.
Outside, the gardens surround the house. The front path leads from West Street to the two bungalows, with a gate and picket fence forming the boundary. The path continues to the front door, via a lawn and well-stocked, colourful flower bed borders.
A pathway leads around the house, with the right-hand side of the property enjoying an area of lawn, flower beds and border fence and shrubs, whilst the rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, with mature shrubs, boundary fence, a greenhouse, brick block seating area by the rear door, tool shed and a large workshop. The left-hand garden is mainly a large flower bed/former vegetable/fruit patch with shrubs and side fenced boundary.
There is a large and beautiful flower bed across the front of the property, providing screening from the lane below, and the garage is located below the picket fence, at road level, with an off road parking space to the front. The neighbours have an adjoining garage, also with a parking space to front.
The house occupies a convenient location, just yards from the beautiful 16th Century High Street, with amenities that can provide for most day-to-day needs, including a small supermarket with post office, butcher, baker, pharmacy, florist, greengrocers and deli as well as GP surgery, dentist and hairdressers. There are also a couple of cafes and Period Inns, including the renowned Middle House Hotel.
There are pretty churches of various denominations, a flourishing primary school and the well-regarded Mayfield School secondary school.
