About this property

  • This plot offers a superb opportunity to create a contemporary, sustainable home with full planning permission granted for a c. 3,200 sq ft four bedroom house, cleverly designed to blend into the surrounding landscape and set in a glorious edge of village location with superb views. The planned accommodation briefly comprises entrance hall, open plan kitchen, living and dining room with doors opening to the south-facing terrace, separate reception/media room, utility room and cloakroom, together with four bedrooms on the first floor (two en suite), a family bathroom and a study.

    Outside, there is a wrap-around ground level terrace and an external deck on the first floor, both of which will take in the superb views to the south east, together with a south-facing garden. The property will have its own private access from Lewes Road, and there is provision for two parking spaces and a wheelchair compliant platform lift to the entry level of the house. In all, about 0.5 of an acre.
