Idyllic country retreat.
Understood to date from the 1920's, this former orchard keeper's cottage has been sensitively and tastefully restored over the last 21 years by the current owners.
Retaining the original proportions whilst adding larger open living areas, the property now provides flexible, family accommodation over 3 floors. Pinecroft is built in the typical Sussex style of brick and tile hung elevations under a plain tiled roof. Recent improvements (2018) include the handmade bespoke kitchen, with top quality appliances (including 2 ovens) and cleverly designed storage solutions. The kitchen is part of an open plan arrangement with a generous informal dining area and comfy lounging space with wood burning stove. French doors lead onto an outdoor dining area and inviting cottage style garden. Further entertaining and relaxing space is available with a formal dining room and light filled snug with open fire.
First floor accommodation comprises four bright and spacious double bedrooms with en suite to the master and a family bathroom. Stairs to the redeveloped attic space lead to a useful study or further smaller bedroom, further office or teenage den/playroom and another bathroom. This area would also be an ideal nanny' or au pair flat.
Gardens and Grounds
Pinecroft is approached from the lane directly onto a large gravelled forecourt with space for about four cars. A rustic timber gate opens to a path leading between lawns and attractively planted borders to the front porch. The remaining grounds are to the rear of the house and comprise a generous paved terrace area that is ideally suited to summer dining. From here well-tended lawns slope gently towards the boundary where a mature yew hedge provides a high level of privacy and seclusion. The gardens are planted with an attractive collection of flower borders, shrubs and ornamental trees for year-round colour and interest.
