The property forms part of a small terrace of attractive cottages which, we believe, date back to the 1920's/30's. It has been modified and refurbished to a very high standard by the current owners providing excellent contemporary living space whilst retaining some of the original features such as fireplaces and picture rails. It benefits from having gas central heating, double glazed windows, a good-size garden and an off-road parking space. There is potential to extend further into the garden subject to the usual planning consents.
The house provides some 72 sq m of accommodation over two floors with, on the ground floor, a sitting room with open fireplace to the front and a superb open-plan kitchen and dining room to the rear which opens directly onto the garden. The kitchen and dining area was a major part of the refurbishment of the property and is a lovely feature of the property - the kitchen is newly fitted and equipped with an integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher, one and a half bowl stainless steel sink, electric oven, induction hob and extractor hood. The former single storey brick-built outhouse attached to the back of the house provides a practical utility room which houses the gas boiler and provides plumbing and space for a washing machine and dryer and further storage space.
On the first floor there are three good-size bedrooms - two with original fireplaces - and an attractive fitted bathroom with inset wash hand basin, WC with concealed cistern and a bath with shower over. On the landing there is access to sizable loft space.
A good size garden with timber decking leads onto an area of lawn together with brick paved path to one side. There is a timber shed and a gate gives access to the parking space and lane to the rear of the property.
The property is conveniently situated on the Chiddingly Road within a short drive of Horam village and is just under four miles from Heathfield. Horam provides very useful day-to-day facilities and services including a Co-op convenience store, doctors surgery, a café, dentist, vet, pharmacy, petrol station, tennis courts, play areas and a couple of general stores. The larger towns of Eastbourne and Uckfield are 13.5 miles and 11 miles respectively; Tunbridge Wells 17.5 miles and Lewes 14 miles away approximately. Heathfield and Hailsham provide very good shopping facilities and are within a short drive; the larger towns provide comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities as well as mainline train services to London.
The area is well served with schools at both primary and secondary levels including Maynards Green Primary School and Heathfield Community College.
