3 Bedroom Chalet Bungalow - Detached
Carters Corner, Hailsham
For Sale £425,000
We think you will appreciate the far-reaching countryside vista, toward the South Downs, that can be enjoyed from the rear balcony of this interesting and individual CHAIN FREE home. The subject dwelling was originally constructed in the 1930's and has been subsequently extended and converted into a chalet over the ensuing decades. In our opinion the accommodation provided offers a degree of flexibility with a shower room on the ground floor plus a bathroom/wc situated between the two bedrooms on the first floor. As a result of the extension the house now boasts a generous-sized dual aspect 22ft long reception room with sliding patio doors to the rear garden. Adjacent to this is a study/utility room with an internal door opening to the capacious single garage. The house enjoys a semi-rural plot with hedgerows forming most boundaries and to the front elevation there is a parking/turning area, whilst the back garden offers a high degree of privacy with a substantial timber-built workshop building. For those not familiar with this area then we can advise that "Carters Corner" is a locale to the northern fringes of Hailsham and the nearby hamlet of Magham Down. Intending viewers also need to be aware that this home is offered for sale CHAIN FREE.
