Offered to the market CHAIN FREE and sitting directly opposite the green open spaces of Southwick Green, behind the picture perfect period exterior with its striking chimney stacks, attractive facade and leaded windows, this three storey home retains a wealth of charm and character, dating back to the 17th century and the property is surrounded by the original flint wall.

Generating a great sense of space the large central hallway opens onto an impressively sized sitting room where exposed beams, a flagstone floor and a superb inglenook fireplace combine to offer a real sense of a bygone era. Wonderfully lit by wide bay windows, the fireplace is a striking focal point and the generous proportions of the room supply a lovely amount of space to relax and entertain, easily accommodating a dining area.

Fully fitted with plenty of cabinets that complement the grey tones of the exposed beams, the adjacent kitchen has ample storage and workspace. A classic serving hatch opens onto the dining area of the sitting room, while the room has plenty of potential to be styled to your own tastes and needs. A cloakroom/WC completes the ground floor.

The abundance of charm and character continues upstairs where four bedrooms provide plenty of family and guest accommodation. Stretching out across the top floor, the double aspect principle bedroom creates an instant wow factor that's hard to ignore. Elegant and graceful, its vaulted ceiling enhances the enviable sense of space. The exposed beams once again lend original charm, while a wealth of natural light and a soft grey and white colour scheme lend a truly calm and peaceful feel. The adjacent bathroom adds a contemporary twist with its rich blue countertop glass basin, modern bath and mosaic tiles. Generously proportioned three further bedrooms on the first floor are equally charming and while two look out over Southwick Green, all three share a family shower room.
