Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming detached period cottage having been sympathetically extended over time to provide well presented four bedroom accommodation, situated in this seldom available sought after village location. The property sits in a bold plot extending to approximately a third of an acre (tbv) with off road parking via an in/out driveway and with delightful secluded gardens, including a large private rear terrace, adjoining countryside. The property is set away from main roads in Old Heathfield within walking distance of local Inns and the Church. Viewing highly recommended.  

SITUATION: One of the main features of the property is indeed its location. Old Heathfield is regarded as one of the most sought after Sussex villages with an idyllic environment and many attractive walks nearby, such as the famous Cuckoo Trail. All Saints Church is nearby, part of which is understood to date back to the 13th Century as is Heathfield Park Estate and Old Heathfield Cricket grounds. These are all within walking distance of the property, as is the highly regarded fourteenth century Star Inn with gourmet restaurant, excellent bar food and beautiful garden and the Half Moon public house in the opposite direction. Although the property enjoys an idyllic location it is far from isolated with a Primary School less than half a mile distant and the thriving market town of Heathfield nearby. The market town offers a range of shopping facilities some of an interesting independent nature with the backing of supermarkets of a national network. The area is well served with schooling for all age groups. Mainline stations at both Buxted and Stonegate are approximately 6 miles distance, both providing a service of trains to London. The Spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells with its excellent shopping, leisure and grammar schools is only approx 16 miles distance with the larger coastal towns of both Brighton and Eastbourne being reached within approximately 45 and 35 minutes drive respectively.
