Charming Grade II listed cottage with two double bedrooms situated in a quiet lane within easy walking distance of this popular village and a five minute drive to the station. This beautiful cottage has been extensively upgraded and extended in recent years whilst retaining an abundance of period features and enjoying immaculate gardens both front and rear.
Accessed from Gloucester Road and set back behind a mature hedgerow, sits this small collection of pretty 'Sussex' tile hung 17th century cottages. At the front of the property is a secluded well stocked, mature yet low maintenance garden full of colour, sun and shade: a haven in which to unwind.
The front door opens into the living room with its' warm, honey coloured exposed beams, wooden floor and large open fireplace with inset wood burning stove. There is a large fitted storage cupboard to the left of the chimney breast and ornate window overlooking the front garden. The stairs are accessed through a period wooden door from this room.
Beyond the living room is a passage with fitted bookshelves and a recess for coats leading to the pretty country style kitchen. The solid wood flooring and beams continue blending in attractively with its' wooden painted kitchen cabinets and oak work tops. There is a large, fitted Rangemaster oven, integrated dishwasher and butler sink. Further storage is located tucked beneath the stairs and there is space for a tall fridge freezer.
The kitchen leads into the oak-framed dining room extension with solid wood flooring and underfloor heating. Bi-fold doors opens the room into the rear garden and there are fitted blinds making it a useable room throughout the year.
On the first floor is the master bedroom and bathroom.The bedroom sits at the front of the house with ample space for a large double bed and additional bedroom furniture. A useful walk-in cupboard takes care of storage and offers potential to house a WC/wash basin.
At the rear is the bathroom, finished to a high, yet sympathetic standard. Painted wooden flooring retains the period theme with a free standing bath, walk-in power shower (with external on/off controls), WC and wash basin. A separate cupboard houses the combi-boiler (installed 4 years ago).
A door opens onto an area with a large storage cupboard and stairs to the second double bedroom. This pretty room has a small cupboard and potential for eaves storage.
Entering the rear garden from the dining room, you step out onto an Indian stone paved terraced area edged with flower beds. Two useful outbuildings in this area offer a utility area for dryer and plumbing for a washing machine and a separate outside toilet with wash basin. Beyond the outbuildings is the studio perfect for a home office or similar. This leads to a further secluded paved and pebbled area of garden with climbing roses, large acer tree, shrubs, a small greenhouse and shed (with electrics). There is sole use rear access to Gloucester Road.
The wonderful well stocked gardens are undoubtedly a feature of this charming home with an apple tree, weeping birch, wisterias, camellias, azaleas and rose arches. Both gardens are sun traps as well as offering shade and privacy.
