Why you’ll like it:

Offering the best of both worlds, you can enjoy all that the coast and the countryside have to offer from this bright and spacious house which has been sensitively brought into the 21st century and now has energy efficient windows and flowing rooms, ideal for a stylish living.

From the outside this traditional Sussex house of red brick and tiles with scented climbing roses by the sheltered front door is very appealing. Inside, sunshine streams into the living room through the large window which also brings in relaxing views of the horses on the Downs as well as views across to the historical church and buildings at the heart of the village. This room is unusually light and airy as the glass doors behind you are opposite French doors into the garden, bringing this outside space also into the room, and for cooler evenings, the tiled fireplace already has a flue in situ for a wood burning stove.

The stylish kitchen is large enough for a dining table and has plenty of pale shaker units and gleaming dark work surfaces. There is space for a freestanding cooker beneath the fitted extractor as well as a tall fridge freezer and there is an integrated dishwasher and plumbing for a washing machine in place. The door to the left opens into a guest cloakroom, whilst French doors swing wide to a gravelled part of the garden with a discreet seating area and raised beds which run the full length of the side, past a lawn and circular paved dining area, to the private gate at the south side of the building.

Returning to the house, the luxury bathroom is at the top of the stairs and has room for both a bath and a separate shower. Simple but chic with soft flooring and an aquamarine glass border, this airy room has natural light and a shower attachment on the bath. The views from the master bedroom at the front of the house are stunning and the room is coloured a soft green on a feature wall to connect to the verdant scenes outside. There is a fitted wardrobe to your left and a delicate period fireplace is on the right. The peaceful second double bedroom is also a generous size and looks over the garden and brick built out house which has a tiled roof.

Bear in mind:

This spacious home is beautiful as it is but also offers interesting possibilities regarding the attic and shape of the garden.
