Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Sold Subject To Contract Similar Properties Urgently Required

Set in a secluded position within the heart of Herstmonceux village and offering sensational countryside views.

Nestled away set well back from the road, a bright and spacious three bedroom detached bungalow with a self contained annexe, constructed in the 1800's and more recently extended to allow space for a feature farmhouse kitchen breakfast room which includes an American style fridge-freezer and a 'Rangemaster' double oven. The kitchen also allows direct access to a sunny secluded courtyard which is ideal for entertaining.

The main living room stretches over 25 feet in length and hosts a brick built feature fireplace as well as double aspect glazing. The hallway from the living room provides access to three bedrooms and a large family bathroom with 'his and hers' wash hand basins set into a vanity unit. Bedrooms one and two are both double rooms and all bedrooms feature built in storage. The master bedroom also has the benefit of direct access to the courtyard via French doors.

A self contained annexe hosts a central living room which has been divided to provide a kitchen breakfast area as well as a cosy lounge. There is a double bedroom as well as a large bathroom with separate cloakroom which could potentially be changed to increase the size of the main living room.


A long meandering driveway leads down to the property which is set back from the road and the village itself. In front of the property there is parking available to accommodate approximately ten vehicles and a a triple garage has side access and is easily long enough to provide a workshop area at the rear. Currently the garages are divided internally to provide a double and a single garage side by side. Also featuring motorised door as well as light and power.

Opposite the property there is a spring fed stream which runs down a channel beside the driveway and makes a wonderful feature waterfall leading to the main garden area. An area of lawn lies adjacent to a private seating area which is perfectly positioned to soak up the views of the surrounding meadows and fields. In addition to the above, the property features renewed roofs on both the garages as well as the annexe. The property has previously been used to run more than one business and there are clearly a multitude of uses that the garages and annexe may have depending on ones circumstances.

With the property being CHAIN FREE and a shortage of similar properties in the area, we do expect it to sell quickly and we would advise an early internal inspection to avoid any disappointment.
