Two attached cottages with permission to form one dwelling, occupying an elevated position within the centre of this popular village, with superb views, south facing garden and off road parking, four double bedrooms, two bathrooms, three reception rooms, kitchen, utility and attached stores and summerhouse. EPC N/A.
Gable End and Yew Tree Cottage currently form two cottages, linked by a door on the ground floor and have permission to form one dwelling under ref: WD/2016/0251/LB.
With the flexibility of the accommodation providing either a substantial townhouse, or two smaller houses to suit two generations by way of an annex, or separate guest accommodation.
It is considered that with further planning permissions and listed building consents, one could link the first floors, and indeed, look to expand into the large open attic space above Gable End.
The house is Grade II listed, and is believed to date from circa 1400, and was believed to have originally been one substantial house, along with Ancient Cottage to the East.
The accommodation would still allow for a sitting room with the inglenook, vaulted kitchen with an adjacent dining room, utility room, bathroom and cellar, plus four double bedrooms and a first floor bathroom, and the outbuildings, which still offer considerable scope for conversion, subject to the required planning permissions and listed building consents.
The gardens provide two paved seating areas which enjoy the views out across the gardens and Rother Valley beyond, as well as access to the summer house which also has the views.
There are flower bed borders and areas of lawn leading down to the parking area, providing off road parking for three vehicles, accessed from St Mary's in the Field.
The house occupies a convenient location, close proximity to 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.
