    About this property

    • Rose Cottage is a delightful, four bedroom, detached house with a separate home office and further outbuilding, in this charming and peaceful semi-rural location. Approached via Sweethaws Lane, which cuts through the golf course, this attractive character property has been updated and extended by our clients over the years, to create a functional family home with spacious accommodation throughout, whilst still retaining the period charm.

      Forming part of the extension, the oak framed porch provides a useful area for coats and shoes, and opens onto an impressive, spacious kitchen/breakfast room. Fitted with underfloor heating, an abundance of shaker-style units, granite worktops, and a sizeable oak central island, the kitchen/breakfast room offers ample storage and plenty of preparation space, together with integrated appliances including a Rangemaster, combi oven, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher, whilst the island provides space for a wine fridge. The vaulted ceiling with exposed oak beams is fitted with solar-powered, remote control Velux windows, that shut automatically when it rains. A door opens onto the good-sized utility room, with ample storage cupboards, and space for a washing machine and dryer. French doors open from the kitchen onto the terrace and garden beyond.

      The dining room and snug showcase the original charm of the property, with exposed beams and a delightful stone open fireplace that offers subtle zoning between the two areas. There is a further good sized, double aspect sitting room fitted with a log burner and French doors opening to a small terrace. A separate WC completes the ground floor accommodation.

      Upstairs, there are four bedrooms in total, arranged over two floors. The generous, double-aspect principal bedroom is found on the first floor and enjoys a triangular feature window, together with an en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms on this floor, served by the well-appointed family bathroom, fitted with a bath, shower, sink basin, wc, and bidet. The fourth bedroom is found on the second floor, with far-reaching views towards Buxted, and the potential to add an en suite, subject to further investigation and all necessary consents.

      Outside, there are two outbuildings, one of which has been converted into a home office with power, lighting, and electric heating, and the other provides both a useful storage area and separately, a lit and powered workshop.

      The South facing garden is mainly laid to lawn, with herbaceous borders and a hedged boundary to one side. There is also a south facing courtyard situated next to the outbuildings, which can be transformed to create a further charming area to enjoy.

      The gravel driveway offers parking for up to three vehicles, whilst the double garage offers further parking, together with mezzanine storage.

    Rose Cottage is tucked away down a quiet lane with views over the surrounding countryside, but being on the outskirts of a well-equipped town, here you can enjoy the very best of both worlds and for lovers of golf this spot is a no-brainer! <BR>With garaging and an office/studio already in situ, the old unconverted stables are an interesting remaining proposition for conversion subject to all necessary consents. A super sum of parts on offer here!
