Vines Cross is a small rural village with a popular pub/restaurant. The larger village of Horam is 1.5 miles, whilst the market town of Heathfield is 3 miles and offers a diverse range of shops and amenities, including both Waitrose and Sainsbury's supermarkets. The major regional centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells and the coast at Eastbourne are within 16 miles. The beautiful countryside around the village is a superb venue for walking, cycling and riding and there are numerous excellent pubs and inns nearby.

This detached Victorian former schoolmaster's house has been renovated recently to an exceptionally high standard and exudes character and charm throughout. The entrance hall has exposed brickwork to one wall and a polished oak floor that continues throughout the ground floor. The Drawing Room features a wide bay window to the front with the original sash windows, whilst the focal point is a fireplace with wood burning stove. The hub of the home is certainly the open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, which again has a fireplace with wood burning stove and a sash window giving an outlook over the back garden. The kitchen area is fitted with a wide range of Shaker style cabinets with oak worktops and twin bowl Butlers Sink. A large Range style cooker has a multi-ring Induction hob. There is an integrated fridge and dishwasher, walk-in pantry and understair cupboard. A rear lobby has a stable door leading out to the garden.

On the first floor two generous double bedrooms enjoy rural outlooks, both have original fireplaces and the main bedroom has fitted wardrobes. A luxurious bathroom completes the first floor, has a heated floor and is fitted with a Victorian style suite of roll-top freestanding bath with chrome claw feet, twin wash basins, WC and large shower enclosure.

The gardens are wall enclosed, to the front with the original old iron railings, whilst the south facing back garden enjoys an outlook over adjoining farmland. The back garden has two gravelled sun terraces, relatively level area of lawn, a summerhouse and a brick outbuilding used as a laundry room, with WC. There are two parking spaces and an old prefabricated single garage. EPC Rating = E

Agents Note: This property is heated by the two wood burning stoves only as this suits the sellers lifestyle. There is no reason why central heating could not be installed by the buyers if they wish and this fact has been accounted for within the asking price.
