DESCRIPTION
This detached, Victorian, villa style property has been sympathetically remodelled and restored by the current vendors with only a few rooms now requiring a final decorative finish to suit an individual's personal taste. The property is the perfect blend of ambient light and space with well balanced accommodation across two floors, and there is potential in this home with space in the cellar and previous planning number 12/04339/FUL from Mid Sussex District Council granted on 14th February 2013, now currently expired, which gave permission for conversion and extension of the existing garage to create annexe accommodation serving the main house.

The current accommodation briefly comprises a pillared storm porch leading to the entrance hall with access down to the cellar. The front two reception rooms both enjoy large bay windows with a front aspect; both in need of redecoration, but with period details already in place these rooms just need a final decorative lift. The rear reception rooms have been combined to provide a lovely sitting room/dining room with re-installed, beautiful Victorian style fireplace, bay window enjoying a bright rear aspect and subtle details including a recessed book shelf. From this room there is access through to the completely remodelled bespoke oak kitchen/breakfast room with a stunning range of wood fronted wall and base units and a blend of contemporary styling alongside the period charm. There is also access to the rear garden from the kitchen/breakfast room and a doorway through to a useful downstairs cloakroom.

Moving to the first floor, the four double bedrooms all enjoy either front or rear aspects. The shower room has been completely remodelled to now provide a luxury suite with a further family bathroom and separate WC on this floor. There is further potential to create your own choice of individual design.

OUTSIDE
There is a beautiful front garden landscaped with mature planting, shrubs and ornamental trees, bordered with a brick wall, railing and central gate with garden path leading to the covered storm porch giving the perfect entrance to this lovely home. The rear gardens are mainly lawn behind walls on the rear and left boundaries. The garden widens towards the rear giving plenty of space for the growing family. Directly behind the sitting room and to the side of the kitchen, this area of the garden is the perfect space to consider an orangery style extension, subject to planning, and in our opinion, this would be a stunning feature to add.

Currently the property has a side driveway with access leading to a detached double garage, which is 17' 7" x 15' 9" with electric roller door, power and light and personal door. This currently has planning, as mentioned above, although currently expired, which could be refreshed subject to the usual consents and in our opinion, perfect for a teenage den, granny annexe or office accommodation.
