Dating back to 1756 is this semi-detached family home on Lindfield High Street, once described by Pevsner as ‘without doubt the finest village street in East Sussex’. The property enjoys a pleasant setting towards the northern edge of the tree-lined road, within easy reach of the plentiful amenities. Though the interiors may benefit from some updates to the décor, the property is beautifully presented with a variety of character features including a striking fireplace in the living room, picture rails, bay windows and fitted storage in a number of rooms. The property is arranged over two floors and benefits from a well-proportioned floor plan, including three reception rooms on the ground floor, a kitchen/breakfast room and separate storage rooms including a utility room, larder and garden store. Completing the ground floor is a partially-glazed entrance hall with roof light, and a cloakroom.
On the first floor there are five double bedrooms of excellent proportions, either with views over the stunning gardens or the pretty High Street to the front. Arranged together around a galleried landing, the bedrooms share a family bathroom with both bath and shower and a separate wc. Bedroom two also benefits from an en suite bathroom.
Planning has been granted for a loft conversion (DM/18/2945) – agent please verify, thank you.
