The Property A traditionally built village house located at the end of a private no through lane within a short walk of open countryside and the South Downs National Park. The house is surrounded by its garden with a sheltered west facing sitting area and small orchard of fruit trees to the north. The layout of the accommodation is highly adaptable with the possibility of converting one of the reception rooms into a ground floor bedroom suite if required. A stone flagged entrance hall leads to a 25 ft long sitting room with open fireplace and double doors opening west onto the garden. Alongside this is a south facing family/dining room with doors opening south onto the garden. This room has plumbing for the creation of a bathroom en-suite at its western end if an additional ground floor bedroom is required. The kitchen/breakfast room lies adjacent to the sitting room and is fitted with a good range of matching cupboards and drawers and a breakfast/dining area with fitted bench seats and access to the garden. There is a nearby ground floor cloakroom and back door leading to the driveway and approach. On the first floor there are four bedrooms including a principal suite with its own hallway and bathroom. A second bathroom serves the remaining three bedrooms. It is also thought that the large roof space may provide potential for conversion into additional accommodation if desired, subject to the necessary planning consents and compliance with building regulations. Outside Stable Cottage is approached by way of a private no-through lane with a five bar gate opening onto a driveway and approach immediately to the east of the house. This leads to two attached garages which provide secure parking and storage, both with fluorescent lighting and power. The well-established gardens surround the house and are approached by way of doors from both the family/dining room and sitting room. A sheltered west facing terrace provides an attractive sun trap with a nearby border planted with flowering shrubs and variegated bushes. To the north there is a well-established orchard of fruit trees including apple, pear and plum. From here steps lead back down to the driveway with a colourful border planted with lavender, roses and neatly clipped evergreen shrubs. Paddock A nearby paddock of approximately 2 acres, title number WSX282939, is for sale by separate negotiation. Further information available on request.
