The property forms a wonderful Grade II Listed character semi-detached cottage, enjoying both a central position and a stunning Southerly views over the Rother Valley behind.
The Cottage, with period origins, was extended in the Victorian era, and now forms a surprisingly spacious open plan sitting/dining room, with brick fireplace and wood-burning stove, Oak flooring and part timbered ceilings, and central upright yet still retaining good ceiling heights, windows to front and built in cupboards.
The kitchen/breakfast room at the rear of the property enjoys the views, plus a range of painted wooden cupboards and drawers, space for appliances and wood block worktops and inset ceramic sink with drainer. A central heating boiler has been installed into a chimney recess within the kitchen. Windows and a door lead to the rear garden.
Stairs leads up from the kitchen to a small landing, with access to all rooms. The main bedroom is a generous double, with window to front, small window to side and former fireplace.
The second bedroom is also front facing, complete with fitted wardrobes, fireplace and window to front. There is also a loft hatch with a pull down ladder which accesses the attic space, which has excellent storage and window to side.
The third bedroom is currently used as an office, with window to rear with the views. Adjacent is the bathroom, with panelled bath, shower screen and shower over, WC and a built-in vanity unit with inset sink and tiled splash back, window to rear again with the views.
The front gardens are private, with pedestrian gate to front, path to front door and side, flower bed borders and a gate to the rear garden. The rear garden is beautifully landscaped and planted, with an array of specimen shrubs and plants, patio areas to enjoy the views, a brand new shed at the bottom of the garden and the outbuilding.
The outbuilding currently forms a very useful external store, with former W.C. and has planning permission to be re-built and extended to form a home office/studio or garden room. WD/2017/1221/F. Plans are available upon request.
