    About this property

    • Property being sold by Auction on Tuesday 18 June 2024. Viewings strictly by appointment with the Agent.

      Fantasy is a detached period property, believed to have been a former brickworks storage barn for the old Chailey potteries and having been converted into a residential dwelling in the 1950s. Now in need of extensive renovation, the property offers a new owner the opportunity to create a character home, tucked away in mature gardens, off a residential road in the centre of this popular village.

      The accompanying floor plan shows the full extent and layout of the accommodation, which extends to over 2,000 square feet and features a wealth of period character including exposed timbers and Flemish bond brickwork, clay tiled floors and an open fireplace set with a wood burner in the sitting room. In brief, the ground floor comprises an entrance hall, two reception rooms, a south-facing conservatory, kitchen with adjoining utility/boot room, shower room and small study.

      There are four bedrooms on the first floor lying off a spacious split level landing, with a bathroom.

      Outside, Fantasy is approached via a right of way over a private driveway, leading to a detached double garage. There is gated pedestrian access alongside the garage across the garden to the house; the garden is laid to an expanse of level lawn, well enclosed by picket fence and mature trees and shrubs, and with a brick patio adjacent to the house. There is a further area of enclosed garden extending away from the house to the south, together with a courtyard next to the conservatory.

      In all, about 0.2 of an acre.
