An attractive 16th century UNLISTED cottage, beautifully presented, with large garden, parking and garage. Located in the heart of the village, in a surprisingly private and secluded setting.
Probably originating to the 16th century and believed to have originally been a former staging post, this charming attached UNLISTED cottage has been lovingly refurbished to a high standard in recent years by our client. The home is situated in the centre of Cross in Hand village, in a surprisingly private location, yet is only moments from local amenities, and with an excellent and diverse range of shops and services in Heathfield High Street, which is just over 1 mile distant.
The property benefits from gas fired central heating, "New England" style shutters fitted to many windows and the potential to create extra accommodation in the attic rooms.
A solid oak door leads into an entrance porch, which leads in turn to the attractive and beamed sitting room, a double aspect room with oak floor, outlook over the garden and square bay window to the side. The focal point of the room is a huge inglenook fireplace with fitted wood burning stove. The dining room has modern oak laminated flooring, French doors out to the garden and a wood burning stove.
