This house has plenty of character

A DELIGHTFUL and spacious four bedroom cottage offering a variety of charming living areas, far reaching views and lovely gardens adjoining open fields is now for sale in a semi-rural setting through Fine & Country.

Located on the fringes of the much sought-after hamlet of Hankham, this individual and versatile home has an interior brimming with character.

As well as beamed ceilings and battened doors with thumb latches, there is painted brickwork and both leaded and diamond light windows to the ground floor.

Most rooms on this level are designed with double aspect windows to take full advantage of their surroundings.

The entrance hall opens into the two main reception areas – a good sized dining room and an L-shaped sitting room extending to nearly 17ft by almost 16ft and having a brickette fireplace.

Across the sitting room is the kitchen, which also runs the depth of the house. Equipped with a range of units and work surfaces, this has an electric hob with extractor above, an eye level electric double oven and a built-in fridge. Plumbing is available for a dishwasher.

A door leads into a breakfast room with larder cupboard, a stable door to the outside and a wide opening through to a useful double glazed timber conservatory with two sets of double doors to the garden.

From the dining room, on the other side of the property, is a ground floor bedroom. This has a bay with window seat, a walk-in wardrobe and a deep understairs storage cupboard. Its en suite cloakroom has potential to include a shower tray.

A shower room and cloakroom are already located off the central hall.

The Hankham Hall Road property – which has a guide price of £495,000 – includes two sets of stairs to the first floor.

One flight leads from a small lobby off the dining room and opens directly into the two principal bedrooms, both of which have tall windows providing a superb outlook towards open countryside and beyond to Pevensey and Westham.

The largest of these rooms forms part of a master suite with an adjoining dressing area with wardrobes and a spacious en suite bathroom.

A dog leg staircase from the sitting room rises to a landing with plenty of storage. This area opens to the third bedroom which benefits from a most attractive wooded outlook.

A door links through to bedroom two, meaning the entire first floor can be accessed from either staircase.

The gas centrally heated property has a large garage with electric door, plus a wide tarmac and gravelled driveway proving parking for at least three cars. Within the gardens are well tended lawns, a sunken paved patio and an array of ornamental shrubs and trees providing some seclusion.

Viewing is by appointment through the Eastbourne office of Fine & Country on 726060.
