    About this property

    • Situated in a popular country lane on the semi-rural outskirts of Bolney, with far-reaching views to Truleigh Hill on the South Downs, Daizes Cottage is an attractive Victorian house, understood to have been built as one of a pair of properties for the manager of the neighbouring brickworks and with the remains of an original forge on site. The house is typical of the Victorian vernacular, built using the local brick, with part-painted and part tile-hung elevations, striking gable ends and casement windows. In addition to the main house, the property benefits from a sizeable modern garage built in 2011, its style in keeping with Daizes Cottage, which offers versatile, self-contained further accommodation.

      The original arched front door opens directly to a spacious and bright sun room with maple wood floor, facing south over the garden. There are two further reception rooms lying off the sun room: the formal dining room, and a lovely triple aspect sitting room which features a Charnwood wood burner set on a granite hearth as its focal point.

      The kitchen and breakfast room is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units and display cupboards, recently re-painted in Farrow & Ball's Charlotte's Locks, complemented by dark granite worktops and appliances including a Britannia range oven and hob; there is ample space for a breakfast table, and the adjoining utility room offers additional storage and space for laundry appliances. An inner hall, from which steps descend to a useful cellar store room (with the original Victorian safe), a cloakroom and a boot room complete the ground floor accommodation.

      There are four well-proportioned bedrooms lying off a part-galleried landing on the first floor, all with built in storage, together with a family bathroom. Bedroom one is a lovely room facing south over the garden, with original fitted wardrobes together with a small dressing room with further wardrobes and an en suite shower room.

      Built in 2011, this substantial outbuilding offers versatile accommodation ideal for use as a self-contained annexe, studio or homeworking space. It comprises a double garage with electronically-operated roller door, kitchenette, and studio with tiled floor and French doors opening to the adjoining terrace; an internal staircase rises to a large open plan reception room/bedroom over, with an en suite shower room.

      Daizes Cottage is accessed from Jeremy's Lane via a red brick driveway, which leads up past the house to a parking area and the detached garage beyond. The colourful and well-stocked cottage-style gardens are of particular note: to the front is an expanse of south-facing lawn with a stone terrace next to the house, edged by flower and shrub borders, with swathes of bluebells and mature hedging to the southern boundary.

      The part-walled rear garden is tiered, mainly laid to lawn with sandstone retaining walls, a number of fruit trees including plum, mulberry and raspberry, a timber Wendy house (now used as a log store) and brick terrace to the rear of the house, together with infrared security lighting and external power points. In all, about 0.27 of an acre.
