A much improved semi detached period cottage, substantially extended in the 1980’s with a large south facing garden, siding onto woodland, located in a semi rural lane in the heart of Wivelsfield Green.
The ownership records for the original portion of the property date from the 1600’s yet the property is believed to have earlier origins. Oakwood retains a wealth of character features whilst having been sympathetically modernised. Period features include an original oak door, beams to most rooms an entrance porch, an exposed vaulted ceiling and an inglenook fireplace.
Although situated within a quiet country lane all local facilities are within walking distance to include the recreation ground with village hall, primary school, store and the pub.
The accommodation includes an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor, a polished concrete floor and a refitted cloak/shower room leading off it. There is access to a study that faces the front with an adjacent dual aspect dining room with polished concrete floor. The generous living room has a beamed ceiling, windows and a door that leads to the rear garden and a fabulous central inglenook fireplace with inset norwegian woodburner (2018). The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted and includes a butlers sink, a Rangemaster cooker and double doors opening to the garden.
Upstairs all the bedrooms are on the south side of the building and enjoy views over the garden. The master bedroom enjoys triple aspect windows whilst bedroom 2 has built in wardrobes. There are 2 further bedrooms, one enjoying a decorative fireplace and the adjoining bedroom has a delightful exposed vaulted ceiling (accessed via bedroom 3). The modern bathroom has been refitted with a white suite.
Outside the front garden is laid to block paving and borders. There is a private hardstanding for 1 car leading to the attached garage which has light, power and an electric up and over door.
The rear garden measures 85’ x 40’ and is south facing. Having been the subject of much landscaping the garden consists of a brick paved patio just outside the reception rooms and kitchen with a raised lawn extending to the rear of the garden. A brook flanks the garden which is enclosed by mature hedging and larch lap fencing. Elsewhere in the garden there is an ornamental well, numerous flower and shrub beds and a large garden shed. There is rear access to the garage.
Benefits include gas fired central heating (the boiler is located in the study) and sealed unit double glazed windows.
