Immaculate stone cottage with pastoral views
Maple House is a delightful period cottage set in an elevated position in a convenient location in the town with outstanding views to the South Downs. Dating from around 1850, the cottage has a handsome exterior built from ironstone and weatherboard cladding. Internally the property has been modernised and updated by the current owners to a high standard over the last two years and represents either a charming family home or perfect weekend escape.
The entrance hall leads to the dining room, a stylish entertaining space with a beautiful brick fireplace and log burning stove. The well-appointed kitchen features a mains gas AGA, informal dining area, a utility room to the rear and access to a terrace.
There are two further reception rooms, a dual aspect drawing room with views across the garden and a cosy sitting room with integrated log burner. The downstairs benefits from a boot room and WC.
To the first floor, the master bedroom has exposed beams, dressing area, built in cupboards and en suite shower room. There is a further double bedroom with extensive fitted wardrobes and a large en suite walk in shower room and exceptional views of the South Downs from a large feature bay window seating area. The accommodation is completed by a third double bedroom and a family bathroom.
Outside, the gardens are delightful with areas of lawn, mature trees, flowering borders and a vegetable garden. There is ample parking for several cars to the front of the property and behind the wooden gates. Of particular note, Maple House has private access on to Batts Lane via a gate in the garden with parking for a further 2 -3 cars.
Planning permission has been granted to erect a two bay car port. Reference: DC/18/0401
