NO CHAIN
Cornfield Cottage forms a lovely characterful cottage, set within a lovely location within striking distance of the village centre, and indeed, with the ability to walk to the village with direct access to Court Meadow from the rear garden. The house is presented in good order throughout, with a modern boiler and even some conservation double glazing.
One enters via a covered porch and door to the entrance hall, with window to front, stairs to the first floor and door to an under stairs cupboard, beamed ceiling and door to the double aspect sitting/dining room, with a fabulous open inglenook fireplace and windows to front and sliding glass doors to the rear patio.
The kitchen was skillfully extended to form a part vaulted breakfast area, with windows and door to the rear garden and a velux style window to rear. There is a range of cupboards and drawers with worktops and inset ceramic sink with drainer and a little window to side, four ring gas hob and oven/grill below and space for further appliances.
The first floor landing has a window to side and front, and provides access to two double bedrooms, both enjoying beamed ceilings and beamed walls. The front bedroom enjoying views and fitted wardrobes, whilst the rear bedroom enjoys an outlook over the rear garden. There is access from the landing to the family bathroom, comprising a corner shower, separate bath, WC and basin, towel rail, part tiled walls and window to side. There is also a separate WC.
Stairs lead on to the top floor, with a vaulted master bedroom, with simply stunning views, exposed timbers and access to eaves storage. Opposite this room is a fourth bedroom, or a room that could be used as a study/nursery/walk-in wardrobe, or even an en-suite, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
Outside, to the front is a front garden, which has an area of lawn, with mature Magnolia and flowerbed borders with steps up to the front door from the front path which leads along the side of the garden and to the side of the house, round to the rear garden. The neighbouring property has access to their property over this path.
A gate then leads into the rear garden, with patio area and main area of lawn with flower beds on either side, with mature shrubs and plants, leading to the rear part of the garden, complete with shed, summerhouse and vegetable patches, plus a gate to the rear footpath which leads up through Court Meadow to the village, or off into the countryside.
Agents note: There is also an unused right of way for the adjoining property over the rear part of the garden, but that property now has access via the footpath.
The property is located on Fletching Street, merely 200 yards from the sixteenth century beauty of the High Street.
Facilities in the village include 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 St Leonards Mayfield School secondary school.
