This super house has not been on the market since the current owners bought it over 30 years ago. It has been a dearly loved, family home and is now looking for the next generation to take it over and be just as happy in it.
Hillside Cottage sits on the ideal spot on Woodland Drive with a ca. 160ft garden which, due to its position, has only a gentle incline and accesses directly out onto the Three-Cornered Copse at the rear. This in turn leads out onto The Downs or straight down to the corner of Hove Park so is ideal for runners, dog-walkers and of course the kids to get straight out and explore the countryside safely without crossing a single road.
The house itself has been extended but there is huge scope for further development if required and the garden could easily accommodate a substantial garden studio or workshop, as well as a sizeable veggie patch. This 1930s detached, four bedroom family home offers well-proportioned rooms throughout, a particular feature being the large extended lounge across the rear with a gorgeous window seat, and the two-storey side extension which now houses the bespoke shaker-style kitchen with a double bedroom above.
The front door opens into a characterful oak wood-panelled entrance hallway off which all the rooms and the staircase to upstairs lead. There is a guest cloakroom and generous dining room with feature brick fireplace, commensurate with the period of the house, at the front of the property whilst the living room with its own, even more striking, brick feature fireplace is at the rear with double doors onto the garden. The extended kitchen also accesses the rear garden and there is an integral door through to garage from the hallway.
The first floor comprises a generous master bedroom with an even more amply proportioned en-suite bathroom with bath and separate shower. There are two further double bedrooms, a small double and a family shower room.
A driveway approaches the house on the garage side to provide off-street parking for 2 cars. This also means that the house is a good distance away from the road and screened from it by mature trees and shrubs beyond the pretty front lawn.
