This charming, characterful property was converted from a former barn and is the most southerly of three houses that were created. This pretty flint-stone fronted cottage is known as Number One The Green and has delightful views over Southwick village green.
The barn is approached from the rear and the charming wooden front door opens into a welcoming hallway with the kitchen and living room leading off it. The kitchen itself has been decorated in neutral tones and whilst it has been relatively recently fitted, it is in keeping with the period and atmosphere of the house and features a one and a half "Franke" sink. The living room has an attractive tiled floor, featuring what are ostensibly the distinctive original stone quarry tiles, ceiling beams and lime rendered walls. The room exudes warmth, whilst still having deceivingly ample space, and is enhanced further by an impressive red-brick inglenook fireplace with working open fireplace and striking brass canopy, as well as views of the village green.
Immediately above on the first floor is a double bedroom of the same generous proportions, a nicely presented family bathroom and a utility space. Because of its size, the current owners use this first floor bedroom as a second reception room. It is the ideal flexible space and works as a lounge, home studio, office or guest bedroom equally well with its carpeted floors, relatively high beamed ceiling and built in wardrobe which conceals a king size guest bed that pulls down when needed. The family bathroom is again well-presented in elegant neutral tones and a white suite with bath and shower over.
The top floor houses the master bedroom with its impressive vaulted beamed ceiling, built-in wardrobes, attic space and en-suite shower room, again tastefully decorated to suit contemporary tastes.
The enchanting, well-tended garden is a little oasis of calm and extends away from the house to take advantage of the afternoon and evening sunshine. It's the ideal spot for sitting out in and enjoying the balmier evenings with friends, or indeed for indulge anyone's green-fingered inclinations.
This is a well-converted, beguiling flint-stone barn with a superb village location offering all the amenities just across the green. Southwick mainline train station is just over quarter of a mile away and offers direct links to London and Brighton. There are sailing and watersports opportunities at the Lady Bee Marina and the beach is just across the lock, both under half a mile distant.
The property has a beautifully laid out garden to the rear which is west aspect. It is mainly laid to lawn with well stocked flower/shrub/plant boarders and a door leading onto the single garage which is accessed at the rear via The Cotswolds which is a private road to the side of number 3.
