A Brilliant Family Home & Sleepout

This fabulous sun drenched home has been almost totally reconfigured inside by its owners of 16 years. They say it is a wonderful place in which to enjoy the dynamic ages and stages of family life - and they should know! Two living rooms accommodate together time and quiet reflection time, with one opening to the rear garden, spa and sleep out. Both add the joy of living here. A stunning eat-in kitchen sits between the two living spaces for the sharing of slow food and long conversation. The refectory table (a chattel if desired) seats 12 with comfort. Three of the four bedrooms are on the ground floor, with the master privately commanding the upper floor. This room is currently an artist's studio and has scope for an ensuite to be added (subject to council permission). Desirable luxuries such as full insulation, double glazing (approximately 75 per cent) and solid timber flooring are reassuringly present. This excellent location has you close to Eastbourne's endless benefits. The beach, bush tracks, school, sports ground, bus stops, coastal paths and village shops are all nearby. With a separate laundry (+ 2nd toilet) and a spacious single garage plus double car pad, this massively attractive home offers conventional practicality and stylish wow factor throughout. View soon to appreciate the many special features of this home.

Arrive via the internal access garage or pass by pretty gardens en route to the front door with beautiful lead light windows. A sheltered porch leads to a delightful entrance hall and an uplifting view through the length of the home to the garden.

This wonderfully welcoming room flows between the entrance hall and kitchen. With a solid timber floor, large skylight and floor standing gas heater the room is a family favourite for its sense of intimacy and comfort. French doors lead to both the family bathroom, and stairs to the master bedroom.

Flowing directly from the kitchen this inviting, west facing room is filled with sunlight and opens to the rear garden with ranch sliding, double glazed doors. The continuation of American Oak floor boards from the kitchen lend a super modern feel, while an upcycled window to the kitchen is a funky nod the past. Enjoy the warmth of amazing afternoon and evening sunshine while relaxing here and a heat pump has you covered for the cooler months.

1. The spacious master bedroom is privately appointed, commands the entire upper floor and has a walk-in wardrobe. For the present owners, it is employed as an art studio. With its annexed study area, it is a blank canvas waiting for your decorative touch and has scope to be transformed into a luxurious suite.

2. Downstairs, this lovely double room has French doors to the pretty front patio garden, a carpeted floor and a relaxing decor that includes linen drapes. The two skylights have blinds.

3. Another lovely double room. With carpeted flooring, 2 skylights and a double glazed, west facing window.

4. Downstairs, north and west facing with ranch sliding doors to the rear deck and garden, this delightful double room enjoys relaxed neutral tones and solid timber flooring. With full insulation and double glazing, year round comfort is assured.

1. With lovely natural light, and timber flooring the bathroom has been recently upgraded (2024) with a new double glazed window and new wall hanging cabinet, heated towel rail and toilet. It also has an extractor fan. A second toilet is conveniently located in the laundry.

The laundry was created during the major 2016 renovation process, utilising a walled off section of the original double garage (now a single plus storage space). It contains the home's second toilet and has an ingenious storage drawer concealed beneath the lower step.

This stunningly attractive room is designed for cooks, company and conversations. The joinery is luxurious, with ingenious features that add extreme practicality to its good looks. The refectory table has plenty of room for family and friends and will remain as a chattel should new owners desire it. This is a light filled space where the rich tone and texture of solid oak flooring complement pristine white cabinetry and stainless steel. A much loved family hub.

The upstairs study is open plan and annexed off the master bedroom. Currently a work from home space and art supplies storage, it is perfectly placed to become an ensuite (subject to council permission). The sleep out has also been utilised over the years as a workspace for the current owners.

The gardens are delightfully flat and sunny. The front patio is a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee while admiring the stunning Eastbourne hills. The present owners voluntarily maintain a small area of council owned garden between the house and the road - another charming quirk in this home. To the rear is a deck, patio and gardens. With attractive border planting, you will spend a lot of time enjoying this sun drenched, sheltered area. Unwind in the spa, in sunshine or under the stars.

The garage is a single, extending from the street through to the rear garden, where there is one of the three access doors. There is internal access via the adjoining laundry and it has plenty of space for storage. Two further off-street parking spaces are available in front of the garage door.

Everyone will want to claim this sleep out! An excellent space for guests, teenagers, young boomerang adults or as your home office/studio. With French doors and a heat pump, it has been in constant use by the present owners who say they have enjoyed it for all of the above.
