    About this property

    • The Orangery is situated on the outskirts of the village of Ringmer, in a rural and yet not isolated position, with superb panoramic views across adjoining farmland to the South Downs on the horizon. Originally the stabling to the neighbouring Maple House, over the past three years the house has been the subject of reconfiguration and refurbishment, including Amtico flooring in many of the rooms, a stylish newly-installed bathroom suite, a hand-painted kitchen, and redecoration throughout.

      The living space is open plan, comprising a dining area and kitchen with range of fitted cupboards and display shelving, and appliances including a Neff oven and induction hob and a Bosch dishwasher. The comfortable dual-aspect sitting room features a barn door opening to a sash window overlooking the garden.

      There are three bedrooms (one currently used as a study), all with lovely views and bedroom one having a range of deep, built-in wardrobes. The bedrooms are served by an attractively fitted bathroom with feature panelled wall and modern white suite.

      The Orangery sits in level gardens of about a fifth of an acre which surround the house to four aspects, and comprise a parking area (in the process of being created), newly-seeded lawn and a large gravelled terrace ahead of the house.
