Full description

A unique opportunity to acquire a two bedroom single storey detached cottage offering a wealth of charm, situated within the picturesque village of Offham just moments from the county town of Lewes. Steeped in local history, Toll Cottage - as the name would suggest - was the former Toll House at Offham Gate and is understood to date back to the early 19th century. Records show that in 1888 the property was home to the shepherd who tended the Southdown flock which grazed between Offham Village and Lewes racecourse. Today, this enchanting home provides all the prerequisites of modern family living whilst maintaining the original character of its unusual heritage. Externally, the delightful gardens are truly exceptional and a particular feature to the property being creatively landscaped and immaculately maintained. Predominantly laid to lawn, the surprisingly private rear garden includes a selection of seating areas so that al fresco dining and entertaining may be enjoyed from the covered pergola, the decked terrace or the paved patio. Two garden stores and a brick-built potting shed provide useful storage. To the front there is off street parking for one vehicle which continues through double timber gates to two further spaces to the side of the property. Internally, the lateral living arrangement comprises in brief; entrance porch, 16 ft living room warmed by a wood burning stove, luxurious bathroom, a guest bedroom with fitted storage and a triple aspect master bedroom with stunning fitted wardrobes and direct access to the rear garden. Furthermore, the modern fitted kitchen enjoys a vaulted ceiling and comprises a range of units with space for appliances and an integral oven set into the chimney breast. Offham is a picturesque Sussex village offering a Public House, village church and direct access to some to the regions finest walks. The town of Lewes is approx. 1.6 miles distant boasting a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants and a mainline railway station (London Victoria 70 minutes).
