Historic cottage in an enchanting location.
Waterfall Cottage, lying within the South Downs National Park and nestled at the foot of the Downs, is a Grade II listed property with features associated with its period dating circa early 1700s. At one point in its history it was a fulling mill supplied from the spring fed ponds from the South Downs and remained a working mill into the 19th century. The cottage was subject to modest additions during this era and the current owners have been sympathetic custodians during their ownership ensuring its charm and character have been retained. Approached over a shingle driveway the stone cottage comprises a sitting room with wide fireplace and doors opening on to the garden. The fitted kitchen has a range of units and can comfortably accommodate an extended family for dining. An adjoining store and cloakroom complete the ground floor. On the first floor are a pair of good-sized light bedrooms with pleasing aspects over the gardens and neighbouring farmland with a family bathroom. A staircase leads to a charming top floor bedroom with a wonderful southerly outlook to the Downs.
A stone, tile hung and slate roofed detached one bedroom guest suite/home office was converted in recent years creating a versatile annexe building with a generous sitting room/bedroom with shower room together with a staircase leading to a large storage space. The gardens are of particular note comprising wide areas of lawn bisected by the drive which provides parking for several cars, while a delightful stream leading from the Downs runs over chalk beds meandering around the perimeter. Sheltered by a number of mature trees and high hedges, the gardens offer shade and privacy whilst retaining a glorious outlook over neighbouring land to the top of the South Downs.
