Full description

A beautiful example of a quintessential 'worker's cottage' of considerable character, situated at the foot of the South Downs and enjoying a semi rural outlook over the surrounding countryside. This charming semi detached two bedroom, three reception room home was built in 1910 (TBV) and has been sympathetically and lovingly refurbished throughout by the current owners harmoniously incorporating many period features alongside modern conveniences such as double glazing throughout. The gardens of this unusual home are of particular note, having been thoughtfully landscaped to include numerous lawn and seating areas whilst wrapping around three sides of the property. Pathways meander through the lawns, past mature and established planting of specimen trees, and lead to timber-built garden stores, an endearing former outhouse used as a potting shed and a brick-laid patio adjacent to the property ideal for al fresco entertaining. Trellis fencing and further planting reveal a further area of garden to the rear which backs on to paddocks and where a summer house with a decked terrace can be found. To the front, a private gravel-laid driveway provides off street parking for up to three vehicles. Internally, the flexible accommodation has been delightfully decorated and briefly includes, to the ground floor; 11 ft living room with a central cast iron fireplace, a second reception room warmed by a wood burning stove and a triple aspect conservatory (currently used as a dining space) enjoying views and access to the stunning gardens. The bespoke fitted kitchen includes a range of wall and base units with block-wood work surfaces, a Butler sink and integrated appliances. A useful utility room provides further storage, space for appliances and a ground floor cloakroom. Stairs ascend from the entrance hall to the first floor where the property's location can really be appreciated with elevated views over the gardens towards the Sussex countryside beyond. The 12 ft master bedroom enjoys an ornate fireplace and fitted wardrobes. Completing the accommodation is a further bedroom and a family bathroom to include a bath and separate shower cubicle. Furthermore, we have been advised that outline planning permission has been granted to create a two-storey extension which would provide a living room and bedroom - full plans and details of which are available upon request. The village of Wilmington lies within the South Downs National Park and, as such, provides an ideal location from which to explore the picturesque countryside either by foot or via the numerous bridleways available. The village was noted in the Domesday Book as "Wineltone" and this rural location is believed to have been occupied from pre Saxon times. Particularly noteworthy is The Long Man of Wilmington, a 226 ft high figure which is carved into the chalk face of The Downs. The mainline railway stations of Polegate & Berwick are approximately 2.5 miles distant with the county town of Lewes being just 10 miles to the west providing a plethora of shopping facilities, amenities and a mainline railway station (London Victoria 70 minutes). Agent's note: Energy Efficiency Rating E. Viewings are highly recommended to appreciate the location, gardens and accommodation of this truly charming cottage.
