Rowland Gorringe are pleased to offer to the market for the first time in over 20 years this wonderful period home located in the desirable village of Chiddingly. The property offers an abundance of charm throughout and must be viewed to appreciate what is on offer.

Rowland Gorringe are very pleased to welcome to the market a wonderful period home situated in the heart of the highly sought-after village of Chiddingly, recorded in the Domesday book 1086. Originally the property was a 15th century cottage which was very sympathetically extended in the 16th century and then again in Victorian times when another wing was added. Pilgrims is a Grade II listed home and is on the market for the first time in 25 years.
Externally this handsome house is of traditional Sussex design with red brick and half hung tile elevations. Of particular note is the cat slide roof at the rear of the property. Both internally and externally there is an abundance of character and charm throughout. Situated on Church Lane in the centre of the village close to the popular Inn, Church and well-regarded primary school at the opposite end of the village. There are a number of walks across nearby countryside and allowing appropriate time on viewings to take in the location is highly recommended.

Internally the property comprises an entrance porch leading to the kitchen/breakfast room. A country style, well presented, handmade and high quality kitchen with granite worktops, a number of base and eye level units and built in cupboards. Tiled floor, integrated appliances, a butler sink and upright modern radiator are just some of the features. A characterful hallway gives access to both the formal dining room, which is a beautiful room and also the pantry. Back along the hall is a family room/snug with a feature wood burner, exposed brick fireplace and bressummer beam as well as exposed ceiling timbers. Furthermore to the ground floor is the very spacious sitting room which simply oozes charm with a part vaulted ceiling, exposed wall and ceiling timbers and cast iron support beam which makes this a very unique room. An additional wood burner with exposed brick and tile fireplace completes the overall feel of this room. There is a rear hall/reception space which gives access to the rear garden and steps down to a cloakroom.

Stairs lead to the first floor where you will find three very good-sized bedrooms, two of which are over 17ft in length and one over 15ft. There is a completely modernised en suite bathroom which has been upgraded to a very high standard and modernised family bathroom too. This is a spilt level floor and a very quirky landing, which sits below the catslide roof, leads to a staircase and another bedroom. The second floor is a fabulous space which offers fantastic flexible accommodation for older children, a multi-generational family member or simply two double bedrooms and a spacious office space. There is also a bathroom on the second floor too.

Throughout the home, there are numerous charming period features including exposed beams and timbers, vaulted ceilings, an inglenook fireplace and Victorian floor tiles to name a few, all of which provide a historic and welcoming ambience.

Externally the garden is a particular feature of the property. A splendid walled garden is hidden behind this gem of a property, which is extremely private and very well stocked. With a number of trees, plants, well established shrubs and bed borders this magical garden is really rather special. There is an array of colour throughout the seasons from daffodils to wisteria. A charming sun spot with a stone paved patio, timber framed pergola and paved paths. Of particular note is the large detached garage. The current owners had looked into alterations to the existing annex and garages to create a dwelling of a two bedroom cottage. The owners are happy to provide evidence of this pre-app advice they received, and we hold details of this on file for any interested parties. There is already residential use established within the current building which consists of a door into a kitchen area, and shower room and then stairs lead up to a modern open plan space for a bedroom and living area. This is a very useful space for any potential buyers looking for air BNB usage, a home office or if they run a business and of course for multigenerational buyers with additional living space for a family relative. The entrance to the annex is on The Street and central within the village, immediately adjacent to the pub, church, village hall, playing field and cricket ground. The primary school and village shop at Muddles Green are within 1km.

Overall this property must be viewed internally to appreciate what Pilgrims has to offer, please contact the sales team at Rowland Gorringe Estate Agents to request further information.
