Tenure: Freehold

Exceptional rare opportunity to acquire an exquisite gem of a character coastal home, set in a peaceful semi-rural location with valley views and beautiful woodland walks on the doorstep.

This unique single storey cottage style property has been lovingly and thoughtfully developed over 35 years by the current owners and is set in almost an acre (TBV) of stunning private gardens. With Little Common village and Bexhill seafront just a few minutes' drive away, along with local schools, two golf clubs, direct rail links to London and amenities, this property makes the perfect family home.

You enter the property via a large and impressive in-out gated drive with double oak garage and parking for multiple cars. Once inside you are struck with a stunning vaulted ceiling and solid oak floor in the dining hall, which immediately sets the tone. This then leads into the main lounge, which is naturally lit through windows and skylights. The Inglenook fireplace with wood burner, exposed brick and ceiling timbers add a wonderful feeling of character making this the perfect room for family to come together. Leading on from this room is the summer lounge for more peaceful moments with doors looking out to the landscaped gardens.

The dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room sits to the rear of the property with a range of light-coloured fitted storage and display units, wooden works surfaces and a double ceramic butler sink and built-in dishwasher. A split stable door leads you outside. The front wing to this side of the property is home to the master bedroom with feature exposed brick wall and ceiling timbers and original timber frame dividing the two sections of the room. These features extend through the wing as it is home to the original lazy eye roofed farm cottage. There is also a second double bedroom and large bathroom with oak cupboards, double sink, heated towel rail, bathtub and separate walk-in digital shower cubicle.

The second wing to this amazing home is also accessed via the dining hall. Here you will find two further double bedrooms, one of which having its own access to the garden patio. There is also a second bathroom with jacuzzi bath, digital shower and heated towel rail. Following through the hallway you arrive in the incredible 25'5 x 25'4 dual aspect, vaulted studio room. This room has the wow factor with exposed timbers running across the ceiling and skylights opening the space up even further. Exiting the studio you finally arrive at 40'11 x 26' indoor heated swimming pool room. Yet again another amazing room with patio pool doors taking up two sides looking out to the grounds.

Beautiful private landscape gardens surround the house. From the kitchen and pool is a sweeping terrace patio leading down to the pond, which provides a peaceful setting, attracting an array of birds and wildlife. This area is surrounded by flower, shrub and tree borders and leads to a lawn area that has the feeling of a secret garden. Sleeper borders surround this space with wonderful hedges and orchard with fruit trees and a beach hut tucked away in the corner. Wrapping around to the side of the house is a second, and larger lawn. At one end is a double stable block with hidden 4kw solar panels, currently used as a garden storage area, and to the side is a raised and fully insulated, double glazed studio/office building. There is also a greenhouse and raised vegetable garden. The garden area by the original cottage has a wisteria arch gate with cottage planting and flagstone path. One part of the garden could support an additional dwelling subject to the necessary consents.

Gotham is a small hamlet outside of the lovely local village of Little Common which has a variety of shops, churches, village halls, butchers, delicatessen chemist, coffee shops, school, doctors, hardware store and more. A short walk towards the sea takes in the beautiful Cooden Beach Links golf club and the very popular Cooden Beach Hotel with its popular brasserie and beach-front terrace.

A short distance away is the stunning Edwardian Bexhill Sea Front with its well maintained beautiful promenade stretching almost 2 miles with far reaching views towards Eastbourne and Beachy Head. Centre stage on Bexhill sea front is the world-renowned 1930's iconic De La Warr Pavilion hosting art exhibitions and theatre/music/film events. There is a lively schedule of public sea front events including The Great Gatsby, the 1960's Festival, Classic Car Festival, Fish Fesitval and more. Sailing, Rowing and Sea Fishing Clubs all have their own beach-front premises alongside nearby beach cafe's to chill out and take in the views.

The Old Town of Bexhill sits atop the hill overlooking the sea and is a popular and attractive area for the town with pretty period properties. A short walk down the hill leads to the "new" town, a traditional family orientated Edwardian seaside resort, with its wide selection of shops and boutiques.

Running parallel to the seafront, Bexhill is blessed with fabulous tranquil Egerton park and gardens which host childrens play areas a boating lake, 2 bowls clubs, tennis club and sports grounds with social clubs for the local football, cricket and bowls teams.
