Location Location Location

With the added advantage of planning permission to build your own 'Eco Friendly Dream Home' to take further advantage of the amazing views and location. At present the 1930's house is in need of some modernisation and maybe an extension (subject to consents) if a new build house was too much of a project. Hill Cottage has an interesting history and is on a historic site, owned by the Nevill family, Marquises of Abergavenny, from Henry V111 until circa 1930 when the current property was built.

The property is approached by its own private long driveway with plenty of parking and a garage. This hidden gem, has enormous charm with stunning views over the Ouse Valley and one blue glimpse of sea at Seaford Head in the distance. It has versatile and flexible accommodation with a bedroom and shower room on the ground floor. There is an 27' kitchen/breakfast room with 18' double aspect living room, and a separate dining room for more formal entertaining, with French doors looking out over the wonderful countryside.

There is a study for those wishing to work from home, and a delightful double aspect conservatory. On the first floor is the main bedroom with en-suite and a further guest bedroom.

For those that love fantastic views, privacy, tranquillity, and being a short drive away from Lewes (3 miles tbv) with a mainline station to London (Victoria 65 mins), Hill Cottage is an amazing opportunity.
