An enchanting, unlisted "CHOCOLATE BOX" cottage, located between the desired villages of Dallington and Rushlake Green, with approximately one acre gardens.
Earlsdown is a small hamlet on the B2096 Heathfield to Battle road, between the highly sought-after villages of Dallington and Rushlake Green, where there will be found a public house in each village, excellent village stores/post office and primary school. Heathfield is just 4 miles and offers an excellent range of day-to-day shops, whilst the larger regional centres of Tunbridge Wells, Eastbourne and Hastings are within 16 miles. The nearest London line rail station is at Robertsbridge 6.7 miles.
Understood to have been built in the mid-1700's, this charming unlisted cottage has been owned by our client for nearly 30-years and has been the subject of ongoing improvement during that time. The cottage has surprisingly good ceiling heights, with just a few low doorways that could easily be raised if required. The cottage benefits from LPG central heating, a wood burner and some of the windows have been replaced with hand crafted oak framed units in keeping. With gardens extending to about 1 acre, there is obviously plenty of opportunity to extend the cottage, if so required.
An old front door leads into the entrance porch, which features a brick floor and a further door leading into the entrance hall, which has a terracotta tile floor, The bathroom is fitted with a modern white suite including a corner bath and attractive stained glass window. The cosy dining room has a window overlooking the front garden, with a further window to the side looking into the sitting room. The ceiling has exposed beams and there is an attractive metal "ducks nest" fireplace.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a surprisingly bright room, having a part-vaulted ceiling with glazed skylights and windows overlooking the rear garden. There is a range of modern "High Gloss" white cabinets with solid wood worktops, pull-out pantry units, "carousel" corner cabinets, built-in double oven and LPG hob, together with space for a fridge/freezer. There is a breakfast/snug area. The well-proportioned sitting room has inglenook style fireplace with fitted wood burning stove, wide patio doors leading out to a covered deck area, ideal for al-fresco entertaining, together with an archway leading through to a large, modern conservatory that enjoys a superb outlook over the gardens.
On the first floor are two bedrooms, both with wardrobes and eaves storage cupboards/wardrobes.
The gardens lay predominantly to the front and side of the cottage, with a sunny south-facing aspect. Lovingly created by our client over the years, there are sweeping areas of lawn, semi-woodland borders under-planted with spring bulbs, formal areas of garden including a rose-walk path to the front door, vegetable patch, polytunnel area and a winterbourne stream. There are many specimen shrubs and trees. The back door from the kitchen leads to a vine-covered "Mediterranean" garden area. There are two garden sheds, and an outside utility room/studio with adjoining garden workshop.
Adjoining the road is an extensive gravel parking area for several cars, together with a single detached brick-built garage and a double-bay open-fronted car barn style garage with adjoining workshop/tool store.
