Oh, So Sweet & Charming

A nurturing haven for more than 100 years, this tranquil cottage nestles comfortably on one of Eastbourne's most desirable streets. Close to the beach and bush track it unfolds as a one bedroom home with high studs, matai floors and rich character that reflects a long history. It has a gorgeous sitting room plus a front sunroom, which is perfect as a library or home office. The dining room, with some reconfiguration, has potential to become a second bedroom. Mini woodland style gardens thrive beneath sculptural trees such as silver birch and prolific plums. Rambling roses, camelias, granny bonnets and blue geraniums love it here. And you will too. The owner is heading south so call me today to arrange a private viewing. There will be no open homes. LIM Report available.

A spacious entrance sets the scene for the charming character home beyond. Perfect as a study or additional sitting room, with extensive glazing along one wall. A large storage space is located off this room.

1. A wonderfully nurturing double room, with morning sun and an outlook to the leafy garden and bush clad hills. The free-standing wardrobe and chandelier are not included as chattels.

1. The shower room and laundry are combined.

The kitchen is compact yet adequate, with gas hob, overhead extractor and dishwasher. Opposite the kitchen, the dining room has direct access to the rear deck and gradens through French doors.

Enchanting gardens surround this very charming cottage. The owner says that there is always a place to sit in the sun, at any time of year. The rear deck is a favourite afternoon spot and the perfect place from which to admire the prolific plum tree and its surrounding carpet of woodland style flowers. The front garden is luscious and leafy, providing an enchanting entrance, and a gentle form of privacy from the street.

The old single garage is used as storage by the present owner.

An electric radiator provides heat in the sitting room. A DVS system, installed by the current owner, circulates solar heat around the house from the loft. The woodburner is not currently functional, requiring attention to the chimney stack.
