We are delighted to bring to the market this unique and exceptionally presented, detached 4 bedroom property together with a 1 bedroom self-contained annex, offering harmonious multi-generational living in a village setting. Experience the epitome of country living with far reaching and breath-taking views of the Sussex countryside.
Nestled in the heart of Herstmonceux village, but set back from the road with a private winding driveway, you enter this spacious character property boasting a wealth of features that have been completely refurbished to a very high standard by the current owners. There are two entrances to the main property, through either the main front door or via the mediterranean style courtyard garden which leads you directly into the modern but rustic style kitchen. You will immediately notice the attention to detail this meticulously presented property has, exuding modern design, whilst maintaining the appeal, warmth and charm of the original features.
The large kitchen is a culinary haven exposing an abundance of light from all angles and is fully fitted with base cupboards for plenty of storage as well as incorporating a central island with an oak worktop, integrated dishwasher and fitted Rangemaster double oven. There is a separate utility room leading from the kitchen with space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and has further storage cupboards.
Leading from the kitchen into the cozy lounge with beamed ceilings, character brick-built feature fireplace with log burner and fitted white shutters to the windows, a perfect place to relax on cold winter nights. The fourth bedroom currently leads on from the lounge with fitted white shutters, this could also be converted to an office or further snug if an additional bedroom was not needed. A small corridor leads to three further bedrooms all immaculately presented and a family bathroom with bath and electric shower over, the master bedroom benefits from fitted white shutters, an en-suite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe.
DETACHED ANNEX: The detached annex has been just as thoughtfully designed and refurbished as the main property and everything is fully insulated and electrically heated. The front door opens into the lounge/kitchen/diner and has everything you could possibly want for multi-generational living. The fully fitted kitchen offers plenty of storage and even has its own central island for dining and additional storage, a built-in hob and space for a washing machine. There is a modern shower/wet room which is part-tiled and a double bedroom with built-in mirrored wardrobes. Outside there is a seating area for morning coffee/lunch or a glass of wine to take in the stunning views and tranquil setting.
OUTSIDE: The properties are approached via a private winding driveway, ensuring that they are completely hidden away and no noise can be heard from the road. A five bar gate opens into the driveway for parking many vehicles and both properties are completely detached from each other. There is a triple garage which has power and light and a fitted electric car charging point, on the main house, there is an outside tap for convenience. The garages could be converted to further accommodation/AirBNB (subject to planning).
Leading out from the kitchen of the main property, there is a cute mediterranean style courtyard garden for alfresco dining and entertaining and a sun bathing area to enjoy warmer days. A further garden area and patio can be enjoyed by both properties, taking in the panoramic views across the Sussex countryside and relishing in this peaceful location.
