This charming property was built in the 1940s, and has been a cherished family home for a number of years. The vendors have made many improvements and additions including a large double storey extension to the side which has been done in keeping with the existing style and is almost indistinguishable from the original house.
Inside there is a large sitting room with multi-fuel burning stove, which opens out through sliding doors into the wonderful conservatory offering further living space to sit and dine and enjoy the delightful garden and views beyond. The open-plan kitchen has plenty of room for a dining table and incorporates a snug area making it ideal for families and modern living. The kitchen has a range of shaker style base and wall units with solid wood worktops and butler sink. There is an integrated dishwasher and included in the sale is a large electric range cooker, perfect for those with a flair for cooking. A door with beautiful stained glass leads to a handy utility space and to the downstairs shower room which is fitted with a white suite with glass shower cubicle. Solid oak style vinyl plank flooring flows throughout the downstairs space and there is a further W.C. under the stairs.
The stairs lead to the spacious 1st floor landing which has new carpets and is large enough for a study area with views out across the Shoreham hills. There are 3 spacious bedrooms that can all accommodate double beds and all benefit from beautiful far reaching views out to the rear. The master bedroom and bedroom 2 also boast built-in cupboards. The family bathroom is well fitted with floor to ceiling tiling, vinyl plank floors and a white suite with a bath and shower over.
There is a huge loft space which offers potential for conversion, as a number of the neighbouring properties have already done (subject to any necessary planning consents) and further loft space above the extension providing storage. The property has electric underfloor heating in many rooms and elsewhere has digital electric radiators which can be programmed using a smart app.
The property is approached via a block paved drive with space for one vehicle with a gravel path leading to the front door. The front garden is screened by a picket fence and mature hedging and offers space for the drive to be extended should further off-road parking be required. A decked path set behind a gate leads down the side of the property to the kitchen door and around to the back of the property.
The rear garden, which is South East facing, offers plenty of space for children to play or to relax and enjoy the sunshine and is mostly laid to lawn with borders containing a variety of flowering plants and shrubs. There is a patio to the immediate rear of the house with a further raised area accessed from the conservatory which offers a pleasant spot for al-freso entertaining with pleasant views of the surrounding countryside. A shed provides handy outside storage and there is also a coal bunker and childrens play house. The entire garden is enclosed with mature hedging, several trees and close panel fencing providing a high degree of privacy.
