The village chocolate box home you've been looking for! A unique Grade II listed home in the village of Framfield. The house sits in a designated conservation area of special architectural or historical interest with Church Approach being encompassed as part of the historic core.
Residents benefit from unrestricted parking and super fast broad band. Framfield has a highly regarded primary school, local village hall and St Thomas ã Becket Church. The Hare and Hounds public house serves lovely home made food and only across the way from the property. No taxis home needed!
If you are an avid walker, dog owner or lover of the countryside there are plenty of walks straight from the front door, including the Vangaurd Way and Weald Way. Only a short drive there is Lake Wood, Ashdown Forest AONB, The South Downs, Abbots Wood and more.
On approach to this charming home you are greeted by its pleasant double fronted aspect with sash windows. The lavender wisteria and sweet smelling honeysuckle blooming in spring greets you home as you walk through the gate to the front door. The brick paved frontage gets the morning sunshine, perfect for that after-walk coffee.
Inside you step into the lounge, and you'll immediately feel at home as you shut the frantic world behind you, warmed by its natural wooden floor and soothing sandstone walls.
To the left is a side room which can be used for a number of purposes from study, cloakroom and boot storage or a third bedroom. The wooden double wood doors give the home that country cottage feel which continues as you step into the kitchen with old red floor tiles. The kitchen is practical and clean with black painted units and red wall tiles for a quirky twist. The vintage style butler sink sits under the window allowing you to dream away whilst lost in the flowers flourishing in the yard.
Flowing through into the dining room the striking chimney breast accentuates the room with its high vaulted ceiling giving a feeling of space and airiness. There's room for a table seating 6 to 8 for family and friends or convert into a snug during those long cold winter nights, snuggled up in the warm in front of the wood burner, luxury!
The down stairs bathroom provides complete escapism. Light the candles, fill the old steel roll top bath, relax in the peace and quiet afforded by the solid sand stone wall and soak away your cares.
The staircase is accessed from the lounge and you are reminded once again of the property's cottage feel with its dark oak walled beams.
The master bedroom offers built in bespoke cupboards with the original chimney providing a single feature to an otherwise serene chamber. The windows have been fitted with quality shutters that keep in the warmth and reduce external sounds whilst you're deep in slumber.
The second bedroom has its own delightful presence with oak beamed wall and designed to give a sense of openness.
Outside to the rear of the home is a red bricked paved courtyard, surprisingly secluded, ideal for barbeques, or the connoisseur gardener of pots, tubs and shrubs. Currently the owner has faux grass to add calming greenery without the need for mowing! And should the British weather do what it does best there is an equally sized timber framed barn style gazebo with pitched slate roof to keep you dry! The gazebo houses large functional cupboards with additional loft space. This area could be used as a workshop, seating, dog kennel, seedling prepping area for those connoisseurs or simple storage
