Pretty period cottage on Henfield's historic and picturesque High Street occupying a corner plot with sunny walled garden and useful garage. Thought to date from about 1700, the property has been extended and improved over the centuries and now offers modernised stylish accommodation that could be construed as 3 bedrooms (although bedroom 3 has been used as a dressing room). Situated at the top end of Henfield's bustling High Street, the outside is deceiving in terms of space. The interior rooms are generous and plentiful, creating accommodation that extends to over 1200 sq ft. The present owner has recently replaced the gas boiler with a Worcester Bosch unit, there us also a Morso wood-burning stove. Other features include a quarry tiled kitchen floor and a converted attic room that could have a number of uses. A few years ago a cylindrical brick built structure was found in the garden and local historians believe it to have been a small anti-aircraft gun emplacement during the second world war, that was operated by the local home guard. Today it has been excavated, back filled and made into a pretty water feature. A long garage (24ft max x 10ft wide) has an electric up and over door and personal door to the stunning walled gardens, which offer complete seclusion. There are planted beds and borders offering a riot of colour and interest particularly through the summer months. There is room for a swing seat and a brick patio with wood store and barbecuing area adjacent to the dining room door. A garden wall door leads you the 100 meters or so to the lovely Henfield Common, with extended walks across the beautiful local countryside. Our client has a property to go to and there is NO onward purchase to consider in this transaction. Henfield is a village, with a busy and diverse High Street of shops, cafes, pubs and other everyday facilities. It is almost completely self-sufficient from this perspective. There is a stunning Anglican church with a church aided primary school at St Peters, also a modern medical centre and dispensary, dentist, opticians and pharmacy together with a number of specialist retailers. Henfield has a tennis club, leisure centre, bowls club, recreation ground and garden centre. The South Downs national park is 5 minutes drive away and glimpses of these can be seen from the upstairs windows. Mainline rail services are nearest at Hassocks (7 miles) with services to London Bridge, Victoria, Gatwick airport and the Thames link service to St Pancreas.
