A generously proportioned three bedroom cottage beleived to date back to the 15th century with a delightful array of original features. The property has a charming rustic feel to the décor that is in keeping with the character of the home, particularly in the country-style kitchen with its exposed stone walls, quarry tiled floor and wooden worktops. The kitchen also offers ample space for appliances and an external door leading to the garden. The heart of this home is a cosy sitting room complete with stunning inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and a doorway leading through to the separate dining room. A family bathroom with integrated bath and overhead shower completes the ground floor accommodation.
Three bedrooms set across the first and second floors all have solid wood beams and flooring, and the largest also boasts a quirky open fireplace flanked by deep storage cupboards. The second floor bedroom opens onto a separate space that could be utilised as a dressing room or office.
The property is situated in the sought-after village of Balcombe which has a thriving community with a popular primary school, village shop, public house, church and village club. Nearby is Ardingly Reservoir with opportunities for walking and water sports at the Ardingly Adventure Centre. The area is renowned for the standard of its schooling in both the private and state sectors. Haywards Heath offers more extensive shopping and Balcombe offers excellent road communications via the A/M23 to the M25, the motorway network and Gatwick Airport. The mainline station nearby is within easy distance and offers direct services to London Victoria, Blackfriars and London Bridge from 43 minutes and Brighton in 26 minutes.
The pretty tile-hung façade of this charming semi-detached cottage is adorned with climbing plants, while the hedges ensure the garden is sheltered and private. At the front is a patio area, which is ideal for outdoor seating. The side and back garden are both tiered areas, which are laid to lawn with fruit trees and wild flowers.
