- Part glazed oak doors lead through to a light spacious dining room with recessed lighting and views of the garden. The dining room is open to a kitchen, which has been re-fitted with a range of fitted units with oak worktops and a sink with drainer. Appliances include a Bosch double electric oven, gas hob with stainless steel splash-back and extractor fan over, Lamona integrated dishwasher and integrated fridge/freezer.
- An oak part glazed door leads to a utility room with a worktop and sink with drainer, plumbing for a washing machine and dryer and glazed door leading to the side of the house.
- The master bedroom has built-in double wardrobes and French doors opening to a decked balcony with panoramic views to the South Downs. New part tiled en suite shower room, with a large walk in shower with drencher head, WC, basin with a cupboard underneath.

- Fully tiled modern family bathroom with a bath and separate shower head, a basin with a cupboard underneath and a chrome heated towel rail.
- Separate WC with basin and tiled floor.

The property is approached from Lewes Road through high wooden gates, which open to a large drive with ample parking space for several cars, secluded by fencing and hedges. Integral double garage with electric roller door and floor mounted Ideal Mexico boiler.

The front and rear elevations of the property are attractively clad in climbing wisteria, roses and clematis. There is pedestrian access around both sides of the house to the South facing rear garden, which is mainly laid to lawn, with a secluded patio with a pergola and attractive flowering climbing plants lying adjacent to the rear of the house. The garden is bordered by a wooden fence with mature trees, shrubs and a summer house. A wrought iron gate opens to a wooden staircase, rising to the balcony which overlooks the garden and has panoramic views to the South Downs.
