Full description

hidden gem |

Falmer Village has a rich history dating back to the Saxon times of the 13th Century, and it is today so quintessentially British, with cottages dotted around a central duck pond, a Church, a lovely country pub; The Swan, and a farm shop selling local produce. This cottage style house is one of nine within a courtyard, and although it was a later build in the 1960s, it is very much in keeping with its older neighbours. It has two generous double bedrooms, a spacious living and dining room, a private parking space and a sunny patio garden. It is wonderfully quiet, yet still well connected for the city, with the A27 and a station nearby, so it would suit those who love city life, but also the tranquillity of the countryside - or even for investors as a unique holiday let?

Living rooms: 1 spacious living/dining room

Area: 953 sq. ft. 88.5. sq. m

Why you’ll like it:

Falmer Village is a Conservation Area due to its wonderfully historic mix of properties, dating back to a barn from the 13th Century, and it is quietly tucked away on the outskirts of the city between Brighton and Lewes; very close to Stanmer Park and the universities. This delightful house is terraced, and on a corner plot surrounding an immaculate courtyard with private resident’s parking. You approach the sweet red brick and hung tile, gabled facade, down a short path where your door is on the left.

Inside you are welcomed in to a wide entrance hall where you have a downstairs WC ahead (complete with a very sizable storage cupboard which could easily be transformed into a double shower should you choose), and light laminate floor takes you through to the living and dining room to your right. This is a wonderfully light room due to the large picture windows at either end, and the pale lemon walls lift the space further. The windows are double glazed throughout (triple glazed in the front bedroom for extra insulation), and you look out to pretty planting either side. 

The kitchen is through an opening to the left, and is fully fitted with wooden units in a shaker style, topped with dark granite effect surfaces, and these colours are picked up in the marbled stone floor tiles which add a touch of luxury. The village doesn’t have a gas supply, so the heating is electric, but this house has a separate gas connection from a cannister in the lean-to next to the kitchen, and this powers their range cooker which will be staying. There is also space and plumbing for a washing machine, and space for a freestanding fridge freezer too. 

A stable door leads out to the garden from here which is a lovely suntrap with space for comfortable garden furniture, and colourful planting pots. You can just spy the decorative gables of the neighbours over the hedge; akin to a gingerbread house, and you can hear the chirping of the birds in the trees.

Upstairs there are two generous double bedrooms; the master benefitting from a wall of wooden wardrobes, and two windows overlooking the village. Bedroom two also has some fitted wardrobes, and both share the same plush fawn carpet underfoot. 

The family bathroom is easily accessible from both bedrooms, and is traditionally decorated in white with a navy border. It has a white bath suite with pine accessories, and a separate shower cubicle for when you don’t have time to relax in the bath looking at the stars through the Velux window overhead.

This is a really well designed home, in a highly sought after location - especially for football fans too who’d need not travel far to see their beloved Seagulls at the Amex Stadium! It has so many fantastic features, that it is sure to be admired by many.

Bear in mind:

This house shares the freehold with the other residents of The Courtyard. They all pay a monthly maintenance fee which includes a window cleaner, a gardener and also the water rates.

There is an allocated outside 'bike shed/cage' in a communal block, which is ideal for storage as well as space in the loft.
