About this property

  • Bank Cottage is a beautifully presented semi-detached cottage, situated in an elevated position in the centre of Bolney, with views over the historic main street and to the 11th century village church. Although the cottage's charming façade of red brick with sandstone dressings dates from the early 1860s, the property was extensively rebuilt in 2017, resulting in a superbly appointed home combining the charm of a period property with all the comfort of modern fixtures and fittings.

    The front door opens directly to a sunny and spacious dual-aspect sitting room, which features a fireplace with a wooden mantle and slate hearth set with a woodburner (fitted 2022), flanked by fitted cupboards and shelving. Lying off the sitting room is a study (or third bedroom) together with a shower room with a stylish white suite and marble-effect tiling.

    The kitchen extends across the back of the cottage, flooded with light by way of French doors opening to a courtyard terrace and a large skylight. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern shaker-style units, with woodblock worktops, a ceramic sink and drainer with boiling water tap, and a number of integrated appliances; there is ample space for a breakfast table.

    There are two bedrooms on the first floor, both with built in storage. Bedroom one has an air conditioning unit, an en suite bathroom with the same stylish fittings as the ground floor shower room, and a large built in storage cupboard.

    Bank Cottage is accessed on foot from The Street via stone steps, which rise to a terrace to the front of the pair of semi-detached houses; picket gates open to a brick pathway leading to the front door. The front garden is laid to lawn, the brick pathway continuing around to the side of the house where there is gated access to the rear garden, together with a screened log, bin and oil store, and two timber sheds.

    The garden has been attractively landscaped, arranged over a series of terraces. Immediately adjacent to the rear of the house is a paved courtyard seating area, above which is a further paved terrace and two areas of level lawn, edged by wooden sleepers and well-stocked cottage garden style flower and shrub beds. At the top of the garden is a timber garden room with double-glazed windows, wired internet connection, power connected and a separate WC and basin, which ideal as a homeworking space. Tucked behind the garden room is a small kitchen garden, with raised beds.

    There is ample on-street parking on The Street, plus a free car park nearby, no permit required.
