About this property

  • Peacocks is an attractive detached property, built in 2003 of local Chailey stock brick, with Keymer tile hung upper elevations, under a handmade clay tilted roof. Situated in a no-through road in the heart of the village, the house benefits from a lovely outlook to the rear with far-reaching views over glorious rolling countryside.

    The full extent of the well-presented and neutrally decorated accommodation extends to nearly 1,600 square feet and can be seen on the floor plans. Points of particular note include solid oak doors and flooring; under-floor heating throughout the ground floor; oil fired zoned central heating; and double glazed wooden casement windows.

    The property has a pleasing layout and a good flow, particularly on the ground floor. The front door opens to a spacious entrance hall with cloakroom and a turned staircase rising to the first floor; double doors open to the sitting room which features a slate fireplace with an inset woodburning stove, and a further set of double doors open to the study. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with oak fronted units complemented by granite worktops and integrated appliances including Rangemaster electric range oven; there is ample space for a dining table and French doors open to the terrace.

    There are three well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, one with an en suite bathroom and the other two served by a further bathroom.

    To the front of Peacocks is a block paved driveway, with space for two or three cars. To the southern side of the house is a small lean to storage shed, to the northern side is gated pedestrian access to the rear of the house. The garden lies to the west of the house, with an L-shaped stone terrace leading from the kitchen, and steps rising to an area of lawn well enclosed by mature mixed hedging and post and rail fencing.

    There is an additional portion of land beyond the formal lawn, currently marked with pegs, this will be included in the sale.
