DESCRIPTION: An opportunity not to be missed, as this delightful detached three double bedroomed cottage has amazing potential to be enlarged and improved further (subject to planning), especially considering that it is not grade II listed and is located at the end of a long private lane with no close neighbours, as well as enjoying panoramic breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside. In addition, to also being set within its own grounds of approximately 5 acres, this property with its idyllic and exceptionally quiet location, in our opinion, is not only a wonderful home to own already, but could possibly be a perfect redevelopment plot for the creation of a most wonderful bespoke secluded country residence within only a short drive of the mainline train stations of Stonegate and Etchingham, making it ideal for a London city commuter.
Although there has already been some historical planning approval, with the correct professional architectural guidance, this property and its attributes could be combined to create a most fabulous bespoke family residence beyond its existing perfect cottage charms presently on offer (subject to planning).
Furthermore, with a network of bridleways nearby and the existing equestrian facilities that already come with this cottage, including an all-weather menage and stabling for at least two horses, this property provides an existing equine enthusiast with a possible stress-free transitional move.
SITUATION: Located at the end of a long private lane away from any busy roads or close neighbours, this country residence is also ideally positioned within only a short drive of the delightful picturesque village of Burwash and the country town of Heathfield for both shopping and leisure needs.
Depending upon educational needs, there is an exceptional choice of renowned teaching institutions within the locality, including, Mayfield School for Girls, Vinehall, Bedes, Skippers Hill and Heathfield to name but a few.
London city commuters from this particular property’s location can be on a mainline train from either Stonegate or Etchingham within minutes, creating a perfect working lifestyle.
