A two bedroom semi-detached period cottage in need of some modernisation with large gardens, agricultural and equestrian outbuildings, ménage, and pasture fields in a desirable rural location with a wonderful open outlook.


Situated in a peaceful and highly desirable rural location on the northern edge of the pretty village of Chiddingly which has a primary school, a popular public house and a farm shop, surrounded by beautiful Sussex countryside with an extensive network of public footpaths and bridle ways providing wonderful walking and riding opportunities.

The market towns of Heathfield and Hailsham are some 6 miles and 6.5 miles respectively, both with a good range of shops, supermarkets and amenities along with schooling for all ages. The county town of Lewes is some 11 miles, whilst the coast at Eastbourne is about 15 miles.

Uckfield mainline train station is about 8.5 miles, (London Bridge), alternatively there is a mainline train service to London from Lewes (London Victoria).


A two bedroom semi-detached period cottage in need of some modernization with potential to extend (subject to all necessary consents) with large garden and a good range of out buildings to serve agricultural and equestrian purposes, ménage and pasture land in a highly desirable rural location.


The living accommodation is presently set over three floors and has been extended in recent years with double glazing in parts. On the ground floor, there is a kitchen with Rayburn, fitted units, worksurface with stainless steel sink and inset two ring gas hob, utility room with fitted cupboards and stainless steel sink, cloakroom and study.

A small stairway from the kitchen lead up to the first floor landing off which is a double bedroom with pretty period fireplace and built in storage cupboard and also a good size bathroom. Off the landing there is also access to a large eaves storage space and stairway to second floor landing. On the second floor a double bedroom with eaves storage. Both first and second floor bedrooms are double aspect and take in fabulous views over the land.

The cottage would benefit from renovation and modernisation throughout. The living space may potentially be extended subject to all necessary consents and we would advise all interested parties to make their own independent enquiries in this regard.


The property is accessed off a long shared private drive off Parsonage Lane leading to residences at Hilders Court. At the entrance to the property is a field gate leading into a courtyard area providing parking for a number of vehicles and off which is an open fronted steel framed three bay garage with corrugated cladding. To the east side of the courtyard steps lead down to the cottage entrance doors. To the side and rear of the cottage is a good size attractive garden that overlooks the land with lovely open views, mostly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs to the edges and also incorporating a large vegetable patch. To the end of the garden is a wooded area with a small pond.


On the west side of the courtyard are the buildings comprising of a large steel framed portal barn measuring about 60ft x 40ft with fibre cement corrugated roof, partially clad with fibre cement corrugated panels but largely open on one side. To one end, immediately off the courtyard, a bay has been adapted to stabling and provides three loose boxes and a tack/store room all constructed of concrete block walling and with a concrete apron in front of the stable doors.

Adjacent stands a steel framed livestock building of about 34ft x 24ft with corrugated metal roof and cladded with a combination of Yorkshire boarding and corrugated metal sheets.


Beyond the buildings and set in the south west corner of the holding is a 40m x 20m ménage which has a sand surface and is enclosed by post and rail fencing, largely screened by mature trees and with a metal field gate at the entrance.


The land immediately adjoins and extends northwards and eastwards from the cottage and buildings and is set in two separate blocks, a largely rectangular level pasture field of about 2.2 acres which is subdivided into two enclosures and a further block of gently sloping pasture of about 1.9 acres all enclosed by stock proof fencing and with mature trees along some boundaries.
