Full descriptionA charming one-bedroom mid-19th century white-washed cottage with pretty front and rear gardens situated in Steyning.
Arranged over two floors, with excellent natural daylight throughout, No 10 possesses many original features and lots of character. It is offered for sale in good decorative condition, having been well cared for and sensitively refurbished.
Solid oak flooring is laid to the ground floor with two interconnecting reception rooms providing charming space for entertaining. A cosy, south-facing sitting room enjoys a fireplace with oak-effect mantel and a wood-burning stove on a slate hearth. Adjoining the sitting room is the dining room with white-painted brick and plastered walls. A Shaker-style kitchen overlooks the rear garden with solid timber work surfaces and plenty of cupboard space and includes integrated gas oven, hob, fridge/freezer, and plumbing for a washing machine. There is convenient access to the garden via a stable door from this end of the house.
Upstairs via a slightly winding staircase, there is a south-facing double bedroom with original fireplace surround and space for a built-in wardrobe, together with loft access and pull-down aluminium ladder for storage. Adjacent is a spacious contemporary bathroom complete with white suite, overhead shower and stylish yet practical Amtico timber-effect flooring and a cupboard housing the boiler.
Two things stand out equally: the first is the real sense of community that exists in this unique terrace of homes with interconnecting gardens leading to the mill stream, affording a sense of space and also plenty of opportunities for socialising and barbecues with friendly neighbours in the summer. The second is the path which leads from the mill stream to Mouse Lane and onto the glorious South Downs: an absolutely joy for those who enjoy fresh air and walking, painting and particularly for dog lovers.
