This wonderfully situated, semi-detached cottage, set midway along a quiet country lane between the sought after villages of Forest Row and Hartfield, has been extended to provide good sized family accommodation but still has consent to extend further.
An entrance porch leads through to the sitting room, which is an excellent size and has exposed beams and a fireplace housing a wood burning stove, either side of which doors lead through to the dining room and the kitchen. The kitchen has well-fitted Shaker style units, electric range cooker with 5 ring hob, hot plate, grill and ovens, plumbing and space for dishwasher and washing machine, and 1½ bowl sink with mixer tap. Beyond the kitchen is a rear lobby, off which is a cloakroom, which leads through to an excellent size conservatory with French doors to the garden. There is also a well-appointed family bathroom.
Upstairs, the 2 larger bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and there are 2 further bedrooms overlooking the garden, together with a shower room.
The property is set up and well back from the lane and is approached along a drive, flanked by lawn and mature hedging, that leads up to the front door. To the side of the drive is a further parking area for several cars, beyond which is a second drive that leads up to the double garage.
The main garden lies to the south and east of the property and is divided into different sections, with shrubs, fruit trees, pathways, terracing, decking, pergola and pond. There is also a large vegetable garden with greenhouse and garden stores and the garden is surrounded by mature hedging.
