- Period Grade II listed 3 bedroom cottage
- Spacious fully modernised accommodation
- Private courtyard and good sized garden
- Central High Street position
An important period cottage on the picturesque High Street in Cuckfield having been completely renovated and extended in 2003, creating a charming and spacious arrangement of accommodation on 2 floors with a courtyard and sizeable garden. Built about 450 years ago, the cottage once included the retail premises to the front, now an opticians and as a result there are parts of the first floor that sit above the shop below. Over the last 100 years the building has had a number of extensions and modifications but much of the original character and features remain, in particular the exposed beams, stonework and oak floors. The interior is deceptive with a large reception hall or snug leading to a family room, integral living room, separate dining room and a step up to the delightful vaulted kitchen. The first floor has a master bedroom with a flank of wardrobes and 2 further small double bedrooms. There is a bathroom and separate shower room and total of 3 WC, one of which forms the cloakroom located off the utility room. Additionally, there is a primary and secondary staircase giving a strong indication that this was once two dwellings. The property is listed Grade II. On the second floor a spacious loft area with ladder staircase in a bedroom cupboard may have potential to develop in some way (subject to any necessary consents). The courtyard accessed from double doors in the dining room is a lovely sun trap and also has the original well and wellhead (with secure gauge covering), brick steps lead up to the large gardens which comprise two parts, extending to perhaps 80ft in length, being fully enclosed and with gated access to Broad Street. Modern fittings include a beautiful vaulted kitchen with black granite worktops, elegant white bathroom and shower suites, full gas fired central heating and the remainder of a timber preservation guarantee. This pretty home will appeal to a buyer looking for a central village position with over 1500 sqft of accommodation and a good sized garden. There is no allocated parking or a garage but the free public carpark is on the corner a few yards away and there is unrestricted street parking right outside. Note: Head heights are limited in some of the rooms.
Situated on the picturesque High Street the property is within a stones throw of the bustling shops, cafes, restaurants and boutiques. Cuckfield has a convenience store that supplies most everyday grocery, news and off licence requirements. The are village has a stunning and ancient church, famous spa hotel and is surrounded by beautiful woodland and open countryside. The cottage is within a short walk of the recreation ground and a couple of minutes stroll of the public footpaths that link up with New England woods.
