About this property

  • 40 Allington Road is an attractive detached home, understood to date from the mid-1950s and offering well-presented accommodation extending to over 1,650 square feet. The house is ideally positioned in a central location, perfect for families or older couples alike, within easy reach of the primary school and many village amenities; its position, slightly elevated and set back from the road affords the property some lovely far-reaching South Downs views from the first floor. The layout and full extent of the house can be seen on the floor plan; particular points of note include double glazed windows with leaded light panes, some solid oak internal doors, wooden flooring through the majority of the ground floor, and stylish modern bathroom suites.

    The front door opens from a covered entrance porch to the hall, off which lies a sitting room with bay window and an open fireplace with limestone surround. The spacious dining room and kitchen has bi-fold doors opening to the garden and has ample space for a formal dining table, as well as an excellent range of shaker-style cream units with black granite worktops, a central breakfast bar and appliances including a Rayburn range. Adjacent to the dining area is a study fitted with bookshelving and a desk; the kitchen is adjoined by a good-sized utility room with further larder-style cupboards, space for laundry appliances and a separate cloakroom with WC.

    There are four bedrooms on the first floor lying off a galleried landing with fitted cupboards. The main bedroom has a bay window from which there is a view of the Downs, and a generous en suite tiled bathroom with modern suite including a freestanding bath and separate walk-in shower. The other three bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.

    Outside
    40 Allington Road is accessed via a gated, block-paved driveway offering parking for at least two cars, ahead of the attached single garage with electronically operated door. To the front of the house is a lawned front garden, bounded to the front by post and rail fencing and beech hedging.

    There is gated access to the eastern side of the house to the rear garden, which has been attractively landscaped into distinct areas: offering paved terraces, well-stocked raised beds, and an expanse level lawn.
