A most attractive and quintessential old Sussex cottage located within this highly desired village. With dressed stone and weatherboard elevations, four bedrooms and large garden, this UNLISTED home is a must see.
This charming detached UNLISTED cottage is in the highly desired village of Old Heathfield and is surrounded on three sides by meadow, giving the home a high degree of seclusion and privacy. The original house probably dates back about 300 years old and is built of attractive dressed stone elevations, part weather boarded, under a slate tile roof. The current owners undertook extensive refurbishment works when they bought the cottage about 15 years ago, together with a 2-storey extension. The property has many character features, including colour washed old brick walls, exposed wall timbers, old pine internal door and an inglenook fireplace.
A central front door leads into an entrance lobby with staircase rising to the first floor. A bright and spacious triple aspect sitting room is awash with natural light and has French doors leading directly out to the back garden. A second reception room could equally be used as a dining room, family room or large study and has many exposed wall timbers and an old fireplace. The kitchen/dining room is fitted with an extensive range of cream coloured "Shaker" style cabinets having ceramic sink and drainer, a 1200mm LPG Range style cooker with twin ovens, grill and warming oven together with 7 rings and cooker hood over. There is an integral dishwasher together with space and plumbing for an American style fridge/freezer. The floor has terracotta tiles which continue through a stable door to the back hall, utility room and cloakroom. A further stable door leads from the back hall to the garden and garage/parking area.
On the first floor are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room and enjoys an attractive outlook over the gardens to meadows beyond.
The gardens extend to approximately 1/3rd acre (TBV), with an "In and Out" gravel drive leading to a large parking area and detached timber single garage. The attractive cottage gardens wrap around the house and have well stocked flower and shrub borders and beds giving much form and colour throughout the year. There are various paved sun terraces around the house to gain full advantage of the sun day-long, including a large patio ideal for entertaining. There are several garden sheds, plus a workshop with power connected.
