In a sought after location in the heart of Ditchling village, this characterful detached house retains many period features and much charm. The property has exposed beams, wooden floors and doors and interconnecting rooms of good proportions creating a cosy open plan living space. A highlight of the property is the spacious sitting room, with beamed ceiling and a feature brick and beamed fireplace with an inset log burner. This opens to a most elegant dining room, with polished wooden floors. There is a delightful country style kitchen with Aga, tiled floor and a range of wooden units. There is also a studio/conservatory overlooking the garden and a utility room with stable door to the garden.
A split staircase leads to the first floor where there are three good-sized bedrooms of much character, serviced by a family bathroom. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite and a door from this room leads to an additional room on the second floor up a narrow steep staircase. This room is multi functional and can be used as either Bedroom 4, a dressing room or even a studio or office.
The property is situated in the very heart of the picturesque downland village of Ditchling. The home is close to the primary school and a variety of local shops and eateries. A wider range of shops can be found in Hassocks (2.2 miles) where there is a mainline train station to London Bridge/Victoria (approximately 55 minutes). The city of Brighton is situated on the south coast (9 miles). The M23/A23 provides good access to Gatwick and the national motorway network. There are a number of excellent schools in the area, including St. Margaret’s Primary School in Ditchling, Downlands Community Secondary School in Hassocks, Hurstpierpoint College, Burgess Hill School for Girls and Brighton College are just a few.
The property is fronted by an attractive brick wall enclosing the front garden featuring colourful shrubs with a path to the stable door. The wall curves and leads to a block paved parking area for several cars and leading to a detached garage with 5 bar gate to the garden. Of particular note beyond this is a garden studio which could be used as a home office or play room which overlooks this most charming garden. Offering a high degree of seclusion and landscaped with lawns, patio, seating areas and trees and shrubs, this is a delightful place to relax in the summer months with many colourful climbing plants to enjoy.
