The Cottage... - Welcome to 'Green Man Cottage', an exceptional, 16th century, Grade II listed semi-detached cottage situated in the heart of this sought after Sussex village, overlooking the village green. This period home has been the subject of a vigorous & painstakingly detailed restoration by the current owner which has transformed the cottage into the archetypal chocolate-box home in the quintessential Horsted Keynes.
Historically believed to be the landlords quarters of the nearby Inn, this delightful home provides a purchaser with a genuinely individual and seldom available proposition, boasting a wealth of retained character and charm with attractive beams & woodwork, stunning inglenook fireplace, stripped latch doors, exposed brickwork, York stone flooring in the kitchen and exposed floorboards.
The inviting sitting room offers a lovely retreat and extends across the entire front of the cottage with newly installed log burner. The 17ft5 kitchen/diner is dual aspect and provides an exceptional space for entertaining guests. The contemporary kitchen has been recently refitted, the inglenook fireplace is a glorious feature and there is a door leading to the rear garden.
Staircase rises to the first floor which provides two spacious double bedrooms and a beautifully refitted bathroom with Drench overhead shower & stylish white suite. The master bedroom is an impressive 17ft7 and enjoys views over the village green whilst the second double bedroom enjoys fitted wardrobes.
On the second floor is the versatile 20ft9 studio/loft room which could be used as an occasional bedroom, home office or snug. There may be potential, subject to gaining any necessary consent, to split this space to create an exceptional master bedroom with en-suite.
Modern attributes include gas fired central heating with LPG combination boiler and upgraded electrics including a new fuse board & earth cabling.
Outside... - Externally, the transformation continues allowing floods of natural light and a real feeling of openness. The rear garden is fully enclosed (ideal for dogs) with new fencing & secure gate.
