A semi-detached three bedroom period cottage of considerable charm that is most welcoming and tastefully presented. Previously extended in the 1980's, the property offers considerable potential for further accommodation, subject to attaining the requisite planning and building consent.

The well planned living space as detailed in the accompanying floor plan, affords views over the surrounding countryside that is designated of being of outstanding natural beauty and the aspect is one of the same.

Outside: There is a detached single garage with electric light and power and metal up and over door, accessed via hardstanding driveway that provides off road parking for vehicles. The garden is a true feature feature, bordering the property on three sides and immediately abutting the adjacent countryside. Providing excellent walks and a spectacular aspect, the rear garden is particularly private with a south/easterly aspect.

Mains water and electricity are appointed to the property, oil fired central heating by way of a Grant combination boiler that is less than two years old. The Rayburn found in situ in the Kitchen has been de commissioned. A private drainage system serves each of the railway cottages, and whilst this is in functioning and working order, the drainage does not comply with todays regulations. A quote of £20,000 has been ascertained for the provision of a new system, of which the owners of 4 Railway Cottages would be responsible to pay a quarter share. Please be advised of this requirement, which has been fully factored into our asking price.


4 Railway Cottages is one of four properties that enjoy a tranquil residential location, and falls within the parish of Firle. It is set well back off the A27 to the south of the village of Ripe with its local shop that caters for everyday needs. Nature lovers, walkers, runners, cyclists and horse riders can enjoy the nearby foot and bridle paths found at the foot of the downs and National Park. Found a short distance to the west are the neighbouring, acclaimed and highly sought after villages of Firle and Glynde, with Lewes town centre so easily accessible via the A27.

The county town of Lewes (2.5 miles due west) is fondly described as a small town with a big heart. Historians believe the name derives from the Old English ‘hlaews’ (‘hills’ or ‘mounds’) as Lewes is built into the slopes either side of the Ouse Valley. It was here that Simon de Montfort fought the Battle of Lewes against the King and where Tom Paine, author of ‘The Rights of Man’ once lived. Lewes has long been known for its spirit of independence and the inhabitants are proud of its significant history stretching back to Saxon times. Lewes is a great place to shop with so many independent, antique and quirky shops and also the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat or a drink in one of the eclectic number of pubs. There is also a working brewery situated in the heart of the community on the banks of the Ouse. Commuters abound with a mainline railway station (London/Victoria just over the hour) found at the bottom of Station Street, which in turn leads off the High Street. There are three supermarkets, the acclaimed independent Depot cinema, leisure centre, tertiary college, along with well attended primary and senior schools. The universities of Sussex and Brighton and the coast at Brighton are found 6 and 9 miles away respectively.


Although these particulars are thought to be materially correct their accuracy cannot be guaranteed and they do not form part of any contract.
