SET on a large corner plot backing onto countryside in an area of outstanding beauty is this charming and spacious three-bedroom, semi-detached cottage being marketed in the hamlet of Friston by Fine & Country.
The property – which commands stunning views to all sides over scenic downland – has a guide price of £575,000.
This lovely home is beautifully presented and has been vastly improved and thoughtfully extended in recent years to create light, well planned and generously proportioned accommodation.
Situated just a few hundred yards from Friston Church and pond and having easy access to bus services between Eastbourne and Brighton, the cottage features a welcoming hallway and two double aspect reception rooms.
One is an almost 23ft by more than 13ft living room, the other a nearly 15ft by 12ft dining room.
Linked by steps, these, like much of the ground floor, have ceiling beams.
The larger area comes with a brick-built open fireplace with tiled hearth and mantle, while the adjoining room has a vaulted ceiling and windows and double doors looking to a patio.
The property has a refitted L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room, which extends to just under 23ft at its widest and faces the front garden and countryside beyond.
As well as a range of units, work surfaces and a high-level breakfast bar, there is a tiled fireplace able to accommodate a range cooker. Space is also available for an American-style fridge freezer.
At one end of the room is a rear aspect fitted utility room with access to the garden. The floor is tiled here and in the kitchen/breakfast room. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.
Upstairs, all three double bedrooms and the landing have beautiful views over the rolling countryside. Bedroom one, at almost 16ft by well over 10ft, is double aspect and also captures a vista which extends towards the sea.
This and the second bedroom, which has stripped floorboards and measures just under 14ft by 11ft, both have wardrobes. The bathroom has been refitted with a modern white suite including a double ended bath and a double-sized shower cubicle.
This delightful home is set well back from Crowlink Lane and approached via a five-bar gate opening to a driveway flanked by lawns and providing parking for several vehicles.
There is a detached garage and a further gate to the rear gardens, which are a particular feature of the property and run to around 150ft in length.
Beautifully maintained, secluded and adjoining the open countryside, these include the wall enclosed paved patio, an extensive expanse of lawn, a large fishpond with paved surround, a potting shed, mature trees and herbaceous and fence boundaries.
