About this property

  • Dating from 1905, Sixpenny Lodge is a charming detached Edwardian house originally the lodge house and stables to the neighbouring property, The Blenheims. Clearly a much-loved and comfortable home, the property offers versatile accommodation over two floors, with potential for extension (subject to the necessary consents) and for the new owner to put their own stamp on the house. Of particular note are the well-established and pretty cottage-style gardens, which surround the house and are well enclosed by mature trees and shrubs.

    The full extent of the house and its layout can be seen on the floor plan; points of particular note include:

    The wooden front door opens to the entrance hall, off which lies a cloakroom. A glass partition wall partially divides the entrance hall from the inner dining hall, a versatile room which lies central to the ground floor accommodation. The kitchen and breakfast room is fitted with a range of wooden units with spaces for appliances and a pair of Butler sinks, and has a walk-in utility cupboard with space for laundry appliances. There is space for a breakfast table and a pretty feature fireplace.

    The light and bright sitting room has a working fireplace, and French doors opening to a south-facing conservatory; adjoining the sitting room is a spacious study which has French doors opening to the garden and could be used as a fourth bedroom. A large ground floor bedroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

    There are two bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, both bedrooms with built in storage and the master bedroom having a separate dressing area.

    Outside
    Sixpenny Lodge is well screened from Keymer Road by mature trees and shrubs, and is approached by a long gravel driveway. The driveway leads to a parking area ahead of the house and then onto the detached single garage, which has a ladder rising to a large attic storage room with lighting and power sockets.

    The gardens lie all around the house and are mature and well-established, offering number of separate areas from which to enjoy the sun throughout the day. Areas of lawn are dotted with well-stocked and colourful flower beds; trees include plum, apple, cherry and contorted hazel; there is a pond and second smaller water feature, a storage shed/workshop and a productive kitchen garden with a large area of paving, fruit cages and two greenhouses.

    In all, about 0.4 of an acre.
