4 Bedroom House - Detached
Boreham Street, East Sussex
For Sale £685,000
Stevens & Carter are pleased to offer for sale this fastidiously presented four bedroom chalet-style home set within 2.5 acres (TBV) of rolling Sussex Countryside, and enjoying far-reaching views toward the High Weald. This dwelling was originally constructed "between the wars" and has been subsequently extended on the ground floor with the additional of a garden room plus a utility/boot room. Technically, the accommodation provides three reception spaces albeit the proximity of both a shower room and WC means that one room could be used as a bedroom, and therefore in our opinion offers potential "multi-generation" living. The kitchen is also of a generous size and can accommodate a table for less formal dining, whilst on the first floor can be found three double bedroom-sized plus a bathroom/wc, noteworthy is that three bedrooms have fitted furniture. This superb home is approached by a winding driveway that terminates in car parking/turning area with a detached garage with attached store room plus "tractor garage/workshop". Two patio areas, one with an ornamental pond, are strategically placed in the back garden to enjoy the countryside views. Beyond the second patio the land follows the hillside down , with a fresh water stream to one boundary, whilst a further paddock area runs along a "dog leg" from the bottom of the garden.
