Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Drawfield Cottage is believed to date from circa 1890 and was originally two farm workers cottages
and is now a charming property, which has been thoughtfully refurbished by the current owners.

Notable features include a recently fitted bespoke Neptune kitchen with granite work surfaces,
limestone floors with underfloor heating, a vaulted ceiling and some NEFF integrated appliances. The
breakfast area has glazed doors which give access to the rear garden and has an oak floor which
leads to a double aspect sitting/dining room with log burner. From the dining room, a glazed door
leads through to a large conservatory with a well established grapevine laden with fruit.

Upstairs, the principal suite is spacious, has a double aspect with stunning views to the Downs
and a well-appointed bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, two with pretty period
fireplaces and a further bathroom.

Drawfield Cottage lies in a peaceful position with stunning views to the South Downs, and is set well
back from the village lane. The property is situated at the end of a long shared private lane in the
historic village of Wilmington which lies within the South Downs National Park and is famous for its
Long Man, a large chalk cut figure, which can be seen from the house.

Wilmington has a public house and a church and is about 9 miles to the east of the county town of
Lewes with its mainline train service to London (Victoria/London Bridge about 64 minutes). Berwick station is some 2 miles distant and has a mainline train service to London (Victoria/London Bridge in about 1 hour 35 minutes). Local village shops and a primary school can be found in the nearby village of Alfriston. Alternatively, Polegate Station is 2.7 miles to the east with mainline train services to London (Victoria/London Bridge in about 1 hour 23 minutes).

The principal gardens lie to the south west, are mainly laid to lawn enclosed by neatly clipped
hedging and some mature trees including a Ginkgo Biloba and a Walnut. There is a pond with rockery and water feature in the centre of the garden. Immediately adjacent to the house on the
west side, is a paved seating area ideal for al fresco dining. To the east side of the garden is an
established kitchen garden with several raised beds and a greenhouse. At the far end is an arbour over planted with fragrant honeysuckle and climbing rose which leads through to a timber garden store and the property's paddock which is enclosed by a post and rail fence.

At the end of the shared private lane, there are two parking spaces to the front of the property
and a double garage. A bespoke hand-made wrought iron gate leads to the front door and
also provides access to the studio/home office above the garage.
