  • Charming Detached Two Bedroom Character Cottage (Scope for Third Bedroom)
  • Recently Landscaped Garden with Detached Timber Outbuilding
  • Oak Frame Double Car Port
  • Large Workshop and Greenhouse
  • Small Paddock Area

The cottage is believed to date back to 1680 and it was comprehensively refurbished and extended by the present owners in 2020. Whilst currently arranged as two bedrooms, there is a spacious landing that the present owners use as a study area that has planning permission and approved building regs to provide a third bedroom.

The useful range of outbuildings and small paddock provide ample space for poultry and self-sufficiency.

The property is set on a small country lane, surrounded by attractive countryside, with many miles of local walks through community owned ancient woodland, known as Vert Woods. There are several local riding stables and a fantastic local community with several popular pubs, including The Six Bells and The Gun. There is a village shop with Post Office and a Tea Room in nearby Laughton, whilst Hailsham and Uckfield provide good ranges of shops, supermarkets and amenities. Lewes has a mainline rail station on the London Victoria line, which takes just over an hour, and Eastbourne, with its popular beaches, is a short drive to the south.
