DESCRIPTION A fine Grade II Listed period property of sixteenth century origin, largely re-fronted in the nineteenth century, presenting painted brickwork to the ground floor with two Victorian shop windows with fluted columns dividing the lights and curved hanging tiles above beneath a pitched peg tiled roof. The well presented, recently renovated living accommodation is arranged over three levels, as shown on the floor plan and the sale of the freehold includes two retail premises, which are subject to short term business tenancies.
GROUND FLOOR The property is approached via an outer part glazed front door leading to a shared lobby also serving the two shop units with a tiled floor and an inner front door opening into a hall with stairs off to the first floor and a cloak/utility room with a close coupled W.C, wash basin and space for a tumble dryer and washing machine.
The dining room has views to the rear over the Town Salts and a range of built in storage cupboards. An open doorway leads through to an open plan sitting room and kitchen. The double aspect sitting room has tall double glazed windows providing widespread, far reaching views across the Town Salts and River Rother and a double glazed door opening out to the rear terrace. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of contemporary units comprising cupboards and drawers beneath granite effect work surfaces with tiled splashbacks, an induction hob, double oven, integrated dishwasher, sink unit with a waste disposal and boiling water tap and space for a fridge, together with a built in larder.
FIRST FLOOR On the first floor there is a landing with stairs off to the second floor. The well proportioned sitting room (bedroom 3) is an impressive room with exposed timber framing and a bay window overlooking the High Street. Bedroom 1, which benefits from far reaching views to the rear over Walland Marsh, has a cast iron fireplace, exposed timber framing. Bedroom 2 overlooks the front and has fine exposed timber framing and a fitted wardrobe cupboard. The shower room has modern fitments comprising a walk in shower, a low level W.C and a wash basin.

COMMERCIAL The two retail premises each have attractive Victorian shop fronts with fluted columns and share a cloakroom with modern fitments. Current businesses unaffected: the commercial elements are included within the sale of the freehold of the building, subject to the business tenancies which collectively yield a good annual rent. Further details upon request.
