Full description

NEVER BEFORE OFFERED FOR SALE is this three bedroom semi-detached cottage that has been in the same ownership since the 1920's. The subject dwelling occupies a semi-rural position on the "northern" fringes of the Sussex village of Herstmonceux, and thus enjoys open countryside views from both the front & rear elevations.

On the ground floor can be found the kitchen complete with coke stove and "rotary" doorbell, utility store and WC, plus sitting room with windows to both front & rear elevations. Whilst upstairs there are three bedrooms of a good-size plus a bathroom/wc. The cottage occupies a reasonable plot and also offers some driveway parking, established gardens and a useful outbuilding. Viewing is highly recommended of this CHAIN FREE home.
