    About this property

    • Believed to date from the mid-1960s, Bramblings is a modern detached home ideally located in a semi-rural yet accessible location in the village of South Chailey. The house was significantly extended by the current owners in 2004/5, and now offers over 2,700 square feet of very generously proportioned and well-presented accommodation. There are two large, formal reception rooms on the ground floor both with French doors opening to the terrace: an elegant dining room and an impressive dual-aspect sitting room with marble open fireplace and a large square bay window.

      The kitchen was remodelled in 2018 and is superbly appointed, fitted with a range of handmade shaker-style units, Quartz worktops and number of integrated appliances; it features a small fireplace with inset woodburner. There is a utility area to one end of the kitchen with space for laundry appliances, and at the other end of room, ample space for a large breakfast table.

      Also on the ground floor, lying off the entrance hall, is a good-sized study and a cloakroom.

      There are four bedrooms on the first floor, lying off a part-galleried landing with deep airing cupboard. Bedroom one benefits from an en suite shower room; a family bathroom with modern suite including a free-standing bath and separate shower cubicle, serves the remaining three bedrooms.

      A timber five-bar gate opens from Markstakes Lane to a long gravelled driveway, which extends along the western side of the house to a parking area beyond. Adjacent to the parking area is a timber triple garage, with electronically operated roller doors and power connected; to the rear of the garaging is a tractor shed.

      The garden is mainly laid to lawn, private and well enclosed by mature trees and hedging. To the northern boundary is a young yew hedge and a lovely outlook over neighbouring farmland; adjoining the southern elevation of the house is a sunny paved terrace, an ideal spot for dining alfresco. In all, about 0.67 of an acre.
