Full description

John Edwards & Co are delighted to present a rare opportunity to purchase a charming spacious 1950’s cottage-style property in the heart of Findon Valley, just a short walk from the Findon Valley shopping parade, providing easy access onto the South Downs and Cissbury Ring, and close to several prominent bus routes into the town centre.

This will be only the second time in its existence that the property will have been offered to market, and is a truly unique home, designed in the 1930’s but constructed in 1950, and retaining many of its original period features, including parquet flooring, stained-glass windows, tiled inserts, and a beautiful walk-in inglenook. The property has been sympathetically maintained and updated over the years to include modern electrics, a recently installed combination boiler and majority double glazed crittall framed windows and doors, and comprises three/four bedrooms, one/two reception rooms, a fully fitted kitchen, a family bathroom, and a separate garage with space for multiple off-road parking.

This is a genuinely lovely family home with many charming features, and one in which we anticipate a great deal of interest. Viewing is essential to fully appreciate all it has to offer.

EXTERIOR/FRONT GARDEN 
The front garden is brick wall enclosed, and is laid to lawn with established plant, shrub and flower borders. A hardstanding driveway leads to a pair of wood gates and access to the separate garage. There is outside lighting, and a path along the south side of the property into the rear garden.

ENTRANCE HALL 
The spacious entrance hall has a parquet floor, a picture rail, a skimmed ceiling with pendant lighting, a smoke detector, a radiator, power points, the doors to reception rooms one and two, the downstairs bedroom, the kitchen, bathroom, the airing cupboard, the understairs storage cupboard, and the stairs to the first floor landing. A feature stained glass window provides natural light into reception room one.

RECEPTION ROOM ONE – LIVING AND DINING ROOM 
The generously sized family living room has parquet flooring, a picture rail, a skimmed ceiling with pendant lighting, TV and power points, radiators, and ample space for both lounge and dining seating. Natural light is provided courtesy of two windows to side aspect, the stained glass leaded window to rear, and the steel Crittal double-glazed doors leading out into the rear garden. In addition, this room boasts a particularly stunning large inglenook fireplace, with a bressumer-type oak beam overhead, pendant lighting, and inset shelving on all sides. The fireplace itself is brick constructed, open, and with a tiled hearth. This is a genuinely beautiful family living room, guaranteed to become the heart of the home.

RECEPTION ROOM TWO – HOME OFFICE 
The second good sized reception room – currently used as a home office by the present owners – has parquet flooring, a skimmed ceiling with pendant lighting, a radiator, and a window to front aspect. This could also be utilised as a further downstairs bedroom.

KITCHEN BREAKFAST ROOM 
The kitchen features a range of wall and base mounted kitchen cabinets, rolltop work surfaces with an inset sink and drainer, space and plumbing for a dishwasher, power points, a radiator, a quarry-tiled floor, a skimmed ceiling with pendant lighting, wall-mounted shelving, the door into the pantry, and windows to rear and side aspects. A door opens to side providing access onto the driveway.

PANTRY 
The convenient and good-sized pantry has various wall racks and shelves, and space and plumbing for a washing machine, effectively creating a concealed utility cupboard.

BEDROOM THREE – DOWNSTAIRS BEDROOM 
The downstairs bedroom – a good sized single room – has parquet flooring, a skimmed ceiling with pendant lighting, power points, a radiator, and a window to front aspect.

AIRING CUPBOARD 
The airing cupboard has a tiled floor, a radiator, and various linen shelves.

BATHROOM 
The family bathroom features a three-piece suite comprising a panelled bath with cascade-style shower over and glass screen, a marble-topped cameo hand wash basin with storage below, and a vintage-style low level WC. There is a tiled floor, a skimmed ceiling with a centre ceiling light, part-tiled walls, a heated towel rail, and a further inbuilt medicine cabinet, and a Crittal double-glazed frosted window to side aspect.

STAIRS AND FIRST FLOOR LANDING 
The original wooden stairs lead to the first floor landing, where there is a wooden floor, a skimmed ceiling with pendant lighting, a mains-powered smoke detector, and the doors into bedrooms one and two. A fanlight looks into bedroom two.

BEDROOM ONE – MASTER 
The good sized double bedroom has a wooden floor, a skimmed ceiling with pendant lighting, a radiator, power points, and a double-glazed window to side aspect. There is also walk-in access into the under-eave storage space.

BEDROOM TWO 
The second double bedroom has a wood floor, a skimmed ceiling with pendant lighting, power points, a radiator, a double-glazed window to side aspect, and two under eave storage cupboards, one of which houses the combination boiler servicing the property.

REAR GARDEN 
The doors from reception room one lead out onto a hardstanding area, with space for potted plants. The garden is otherwise laid to lawn, with established plant, shrub and flower borders, including several mature trees. There is a patio section with space for dining and seating furniture – perfect for barbecuing or alfresco dining – and two large raised allotment areas. There is access to the front of the property along the south side, and on the north side, access to the driveway, the separate garage, and the door into the kitchen. There is also an outside tap, an external storage cupboard (formerly the external coalshed), and wooden double-gates opening onto the front garden.
