Delightful cottage

editorial image

This delightful character cottage, part of which is believed to date back to the 1700s, has been extensively and sympathetically improved by the current owners yet retains many original features.

The property, on Durrants Road, Rowland’s Castle, has new solid oak floors to the majority of ground floor rooms, double glazed windows and a modern gas heating system via a combi boiler and radiators. A bespoke fitted kitchen has solid beech worktops and ceramic butler style sink, a cosy sitting room with bay window and inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, double doors lead into the dining room which in turn leads into a large conservatory.

Also on the ground floor is a quarry tiled entrance porch and reception hall and a further side entrance lobby next to the kitchen.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom, plus a single bedroom and a separate shower room. There is a partially converted loft room (accessed via a folding ladder from the landing) which has been boarded and lined and has a Velux style skylight plus a rear facing double glazed window. There is restricted headroom due to the sloping roof.

Outside there is a detached single garage and driveway for two cars, plus another parking space to the front of the property. The front garden is planted with a wide variety of shrubs and small trees, as is the attractive large corner bed at the entrance to the drive. The charming low maintenance rear garden is in two sections, with a large enclosed, quite private decked area to one side of the conservatory and the main rear facing garden to the other side of it.

Price £379,995.
