About this property

  • Well screened from the road by mature hedging, Mariteau Cottage is a delightful attached Grade II listed property, featuring elevations enhanced with climbing roses and wisteria. Situated in the Conservation Area of the ancient Cinque Port of Winchelsea, this versatile single storey home is understood to have once been the dairy to the former neighbouring mansion, Mariteau House.

    Attractive east facing reception rooms comprise a dining room and a lovely light and airy triple aspect sitting room with wood burning stove and door opening out to the pretty walled courtyard.
    The kitchen is equipped with a range of fitted modern cupboards with wooden work surfaces. Appliances include a wall mounted oven, a 4 ring gas hob and a freestanding dishwasher.
    Three bedrooms include the master bedroom, which benefits from wardrobe cupboards and an en suite shower room. There is a further bathroom and a conservatory leads from the master bedroom to the attractive rear garden. One of the bedrooms is currently utilised as a study.
    The property enjoys very pretty easterly and westerly facing gardens. To the front there is an area of lawn with mature maples and borders planted with seasonal shrubs, bulbs and roses. Whilst to the rear the garden continues, with fruit trees including fig, plum and peach, a magnolia tree, rose beds and a vegetable garden.
    There are two useful garden sheds with power and light connected and an attached single garage.
