Why you’ll like it:


At the heart of this friendly village, beloved by many and made famous by the Victorian art critic and social commentator John Ruskin, and close-but not too close- to the gourmet foodie pub, a short track leads from the street to a peaceful idyll where these two cottages gaze across the protected fields of the National Park to the Devil’s Dyke. 


The front of this delightful and surprisingly spacious home has a quintessentially scented front garden where you can sit beneath roses and clematis and admire the sweep of the Downs whilst enjoying the occasional horse and rider as they pass. Inside, a high ceiling with painted beams welcomes you in, the gleaming oak floor reflecting all the light pouring in through the south window, set low so you can delight in the unique views even when seated. For winter – or more intimate evenings- the energy efficient windows can be closed, and the wood burner in the corner will then add warmth as well as character to the room.


Privately tucked away at the heart of the ground floor is a quiet study, also used as a guest room, and at the back, this home really spreads its wings in the stunning kitchen where light pours in through the vaulted roof light high above your head, and the garden is brought into the room by the broad French doors and window in the far wall. Thoughtfully designed, gleaming grey units are topped by wood and all of the high spec appliances are integrated including the sleek Bosch touch induction hob and oven and electric slimline heating throughout,


Outside, sleeper edged stairs lead up into a perfect example of a cottage garden, with brick paths gently meandering past imaginatively planted flowerbeds to a sunny seating and eating area where you can enjoy the garden and views of the Downs with friends, and hidden away amongst sweet smelling roses is a wood store and a pretty summer house which could also be an extra work space as there is power.


Up, past under stair storage concealing plumbing and power for a washing machine and drier, the restful double bedroom has plenty of fitted wardrobes already in place for you and looks over fields to the gently rolling Downs, making the room very private as well. Next door the luxurious bathroom is lined with Travertine marble and has a shower above the bath, heated towel rail and a contemporary hand basin which sits above storage and under a touch lit mirror. Perfect!


Bear in mind:


The track is being resurfaced in August, and it is all paid for.  


Owner’s secret:


“It is really peaceful here, but with village life literally at the end of my drive and central Brighton and the beach still within easy reach”


Where it is:


Shops: Dyke Road Avenue is a 10 minute drive


Train Station: Hassocks 15 minutes


Seafront or Park: Beach 20 minutes, there are local bridle ways and footpaths


Closest Schools:

Sitting high above the road to Devil’s Dyke, the thriving villages of Fulking and Poynings are around the corner, each offering bistro pubs and clubs for local entertainment. The coastal City of Brighton and Hove is within a 20 minute drive and for those needing to venture further afield, the railway station at Hassocks, with a fast and regular service to Gatwick and London, is within easy reach.
