Beautifully presented semi-detached Victorian cottage with south-facing garden.
5 Sawyard Cottages is a beautifully presented, four bedroom semi-detached property, believed to originally date from around 1880 and with clay tile hung and brick elevations under a gabled tiled roof with. The property has been thoughtfully extended and refurbished to create a wonderful and spacious family home, with oak flooring to the ground floor and neutral décor throughout; the exterior woodwork has been recently repainted.
The property retains much of its Victorian charm, cleverly combined with modern fittings such as bespoke double glazed casement windows, some fitted with plantation shutters, and contemporary bathroom furniture.
The floorplans give an excellent overview of the full extent of the layout with points of note including the triple aspect sitting room, which has large French doors opening to the south facing garden and views across the land beyond; the kitchen/dining room has a mix of tiled and oak flooring, painted wood cabinets with wood surfaces, a central island breakfast bar, an Aga woodburner, a range oven and space for a fridge freezer.
To the side of the dining room lies a study, with access to the rear terrace.
The utility room has been recently refitted with bespoke cabinetry and a cloakroom completes the ground floor.
The principal bedroom has lovely views across the gardens, a good range of bespoke fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom; three further bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the accommodation.
5 Sawyard Cottages is approached from Lewes Road by a track, leading past the neighbouring properties to the five bar gate which opens to the gravelled parking area and recently added oak framed car port.
The path leads down to the front door and terrace, which is bordered by wood planters which contain range of herbs; there is access to an outside store where the boiler is sited and the detached summer house/home office which has power connected.
The terrace extends around the house; there is further terrace with space for seating at the rear of the dining room, and a raised deck with hot tub sited at one end.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a post and rail boundary, and established trees providing a screen to the west with new planting of hornbeam and silver birch. The garden extends in all to about 0.28 of an acre.
