Property description

***open house 13th Jan by appointment only***

Positioned to the lower end of tree lined Ditchling Road and in catchment of sought after schools, this truly wonderful and surprisingly spacious split level period conversion occupies the entire first (top) floor of this handsome red brick Edwardian house and includes a large loft space just calling out for conversion!

Offered with a share in the freehold, this charming property is beautifully presented throughout, offers a wealth of period features and has proven a wonderful home for our vendor who has been in residence for the last 10 years and has greatly improved the property to include a refitted boiler.

Our vendor says "Location has been perfect for ease of access in and out of town and proximity to Fiveways with its parade of local shops is extremely convenient for those everyday items. I'll miss my lovely neighbours and I hope to be able to find an onward property which is as wonderfully light and airy as my current home - just a little smaller and ground floor."

Well arranged accommodation includes 11'10" x 13'11" lounge dining room with feature fireplace and impressive box bay window - sufficient in size for a table to comfortably seat four and perfectly positioned for distant countryside views. The kitchen diner measures an impressive 11'7" x 11'10" and enjoys an elevated outlook over roof tops - as does the master bedrooms with West facing bay window. A charming Parisian style bathroom is complete with French doors which open to a balcony - appropriately sized for a bistro table and two chairs.

Our lovely vendor looks forward to meeting you at the openhouse where she will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
