3 Bedroom Detached Bungalow
A unique opportunity to acquire this characterful former forge nestled at the foot of the South Downs and within the National Park, the property comes to the market for the first time in over 30 years and whilst presented in good order is considered it could benefit from some cosmetic updating. Standing in a South facing plot of 0.6 acres the views from this property really need to be seen to be fully appreciated. Pleasantly situated on the eastern edge of the village of Fulking with nearby footpaths and bridleways leading directly onto the Downs. A feature of the property is the outdoor heated swimming pool measuring 13m X 5m and surrounding South facing patio which enjoys a panoramic view over the National Park, we also particularly like the Inglenook fireplace in the sitting room which includes a ‘Deville Charleville’ solid fuel stove. The accommodation briefly includes, an entrance porch leading into the vestibule with small snug off to the side, there is a double aspect kitchen/breakfast room with double doors out to the private secluded courtyard with mature and thriving grape vine. The sitting/dining room is U shaped with a substantial adjoining conservatory where, upon entering one cannot fail to be impressed by the view. A second conservatory overlooks the courtyard and is accessed via the hall, from the hall all bedrooms are accessed. The master bedroom has a en-suite shower room/WC and a walk- in sauna (not tested). There is a white contemporary family bathroom. Outside, there is a large gravelled parking/turning area approached from the lane via an electronic five bar gate and providing parking for numerous vehicles. A sliding door leads into the private courtyard with further covered car port parking and access to the garage/workshop. It is considered that the garage/workshop could be converted to create additional accommodation to the cottage if required and subject to any necessary consents. Adjoining the pool and patio there is a plant room having filtration system etc, and a detached timber chalet 12’7 x 12’7 ideal as a changing facility for pool users. The remaining gardens are arranged to level lawns also discreetly screening the private drainage system.
