About this property

  • Originally dating from the 1940s, Little Canons was significantly extended and modernised 10 years ago and offers a superbly presented modern home in the classic Sussex vernacular, with part tile hung, part rendered elevations under a tiled roof.

    The property is exceptionally well-presented, having been further developed by the current owners and has the benefit of double glazing throughout and is arranged over three floors.
    From the gabled porch, the wooden front door opens to the light and spacious entrance hall.

    Glazed double doors open to the sitting room, which is triple aspect, with a brick fireplace set with a dual fuel burner, and doors opening to the garden room. This vaulted extension was added by the current owners in 2016 and has French doors to the west-facing rear terrace.

    The dining room has wood flooring with French doors leading to the garden and is open to the kitchen, which has a good range of solid wood Shaker-style cabinets, a two oven Rangemaster with five ring induction hob, an integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher and an adjoining utility room. There is a cloakroom lying off the hall.

    On the first floor, the principal bedroom has bespoke fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room.

    There are two further bedrooms, one of which is accessed through the study which could be used as a bedroom, and a family bathroom with a bath and separate shower situated on this floor.

    The loft has been converted to create an additional second floor bedroom with en suite bathroom.

    The full extent and layout of the 2161 sq ft accommodation can be seen on the floorplans.

    Little Canons sits centrally in its plot and is enclosed by recently erected close board fencing, with a five bar gate opening from Tanyard Lane to the gravelled parking area ahead of the house.

    The front garden has an area of lawn, with a good sized timber storage shed and workshop, and an open bay tiled roof, oak framed garage suitable for two cars.

    The rear garden is securely enclosed, with a paved sun terrace spanning the rear elevation and providing space for table and chairs. The remainder of the garden is mainly laid to lawn, with some established fruit trees and a summer house with adjoining store.

    In all, about 0.3 of an acre.
