Superbly presented detached house in a sought after no-through road.
The Cottage is a fine detached property, believed to date from the 1950s and built to the design of renowned local architect Turner, and offering superbly presented, bright and spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. The house and its grounds have been the subject of thoughtful renovation and refurbishment by the current owners, including a two-storey extension to the sitting room and principal bedroom, bespoke oak front door and staircase, oak engineered flooring to the kitchen, wood burners fitted to the sitting room and dining room, and modern fittings to all bath/shower rooms. There is herringbone parquet flooring to much of the original ground floor.
The Cottage is ideally suited for family life, offering plenty of versatile reception space. The extended, dual aspect sitting room has a bay window and French doors to the front patio; the dining room is also dual aspect, and could be used as a family room, as the well-appointed and extended kitchen/breakfast room offers space for table and chairs. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted, with white Sileston surfaces, a good range of wall-hung and under-counter units by Gardiner of England complemented by Smeg appliances including steam oven, fan oven, fridge and a four-ring induction hob with extractor fan over; French doors open to the eastern patio.
Beyond the kitchen is the rear hallway/boot room, which gives access to the study, ideally set away from the rest of the accommodation and fitted with bespoke oak bookshelves, and also to the refitted utility room. A door leads outside to the side of the house. Lying off the main entrance hall is a shower room; from the hall the bespoke oak staircase rises to the first floor.
The principal bedroom, its dressing room and shower room form an impressive suite; the 21ft bedroom has fitted cupboards, and wooden shutters to the window which frames the distinctive views to the top of the South Downs. The dressing room has a pocket door to the shower room.
There are three further bedrooms, two with fitted cupboards, and a contemporary bathroom with drencher shower fitted over the bath. Please refer to the floorplans for a comprehensive overview of the accommodation.
The Cottage sits almost centrally within its generous plot, which extends to about a third of an acre and is set on a gentle incline. It is approached via a five bar gate which opens to a long brick paved driveway, leading up past the front garden and offering plenty of off-street parking ahead of the house and garage.
The tandem garage and workshop is secure and has power connected; a wisteria clad pergola walkway leads down the side of the garage. There is a cedar framed greenhouse with lighting, and to the rear of the garden are two garden sheds and garden storage.
The gardens lie almost equally to the front and rear of the house, and have been cleverly landscaped to provide separate areas to sit and enjoy the sunshine throughout the day and into the evening, with outdoor lighting throughout the plot. The front patio adjoins the sitting room, creating a superb spot to sit and enjoy the views. To the east side of the house is a larger patio with a large pergola, space for table and chairs and low level lighting. The rear lawn slopes gently upwards away from the house, with a further seating area and a pond at the top of the garden.
