This attractive home is set back from the road beyond a good size front garden, bordered by mature laurel bushes, which give the house its name and also provide wonderful privacy. The covered front door opens into a hallway from which all the room emanate. The two ground floor bedrooms are at the front of the house, one either side of the hallway, with a favoured easterly aspect. The master bedroom is large and bright whilst the bedroom opposite is a good size single, ideal as a guest room or home study, and both bedrooms have been recently repainted. Just beyond the staircase to the first floor is a well-proportioned bathroom with a white suite, several storage vanity cupboards and a separate bath and shower cubicle. On the first floor is a large double bedroom which doubles as a a home office for the current owners with separate WC. There is also a sizeable attic space with easy access via a door on the landing.
At the far end of the hallway, towards the rear of the house, is a good size eat-in kitchen with a large sitting room adjacent to it. The kitchen has a lovely large picture window overlooking the generous rear garden and the back door leads out to a partly covered side return which access both the back and front gardens beyond a lockable gate. The living room lends itself to having zoned areas as the front and rear portion have a small steps’ difference in height. The current owners use the front portion opposite the attractive brick feature fireplace as the TV area, whilst the rear portion is the sitting/dining area, ideal for reading or just to enjoy the view to the garden through the double glazed french doors.
Access to the A27 leading east to Worthing and west to Brighton & Hove is quick and easy, whilst Lancing train station, with direct links along the coast and to London Victoria in less than 90 minutes is under 1 mile away.
The rear garden itself is a delight! With a charming wooden pergola just outside the french doors, a veggie patch beyond that and a paved pathway that diagonally bisects the garden with a fragrant clematis covered wooden archway in the centre, there is lots to enjoy. The planting is mature so that the garden is very secluded and private and the side door into the garage is useful for garden equipment and tools. The garage is large enough to fit a mid-sized modern car, with some storage space in the ceiling above and at the far end. There is also a well-proportioned car port and a parking space in front of the garage.
