A rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully refurbished Victorian semi detached cottage in an idyllic rural setting situated along a country lane approximately 5 minutes drive from Henfield village. Standing in a large plot with gardens to the side and rear enjoying glorious far reaching countryside views. The current vendors have updated and modernised the accommodation and retained the character and period features whilst mixing this with contemporary fixtures and fittings suited to modern living. There exists enormous potential to extend both the ground and first floor to create, for example, additional reception/family living space and two further bedrooms and a second bathroom (stpp).
The accommodation includes: large kitchen dining/family room, dual aspect, with a working fireplace and with the kitchen over looking the rear garden. A conservatory with door to the front and double doors to the gardens with lovely all round views. Also on the ground floor, a boot room/utility and separate w.c.. On the first floor there is the double bedroom with stunning far reaching views to the front and an outstanding bathroom, larger than average size as was likely to have been a bedroom originally, with a separate shower and a free standing roll top bath. On the first floor is the master bedroom again with stunning views and an ensuite shower room.
A key feature of this pretty rural cottage are the grounds. The extensive gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with a large timber shed to the rear and with a variety of mature shrubs and trees and pretty well stocked flower beds. A large patio area provides a great outdoor dining and entertaining space all enclosed by thick hedging with fields beyond. Ample parking to the front.
In all a lovely character cottage with huge potential and set in an outstanding rural position within a large plot. Viewing highly recommended.
