Offering simply stunning countryside views, we are delighted to offer this attractive, character detached family home, understood to date back to the 1930's, situated down a quiet, no through country lane, on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty on the outer fringes of the sought after village of Buxted. Over the years the property has been significantly extended, notably on the ground floor, and currently comprises four bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. There is an entrance lobby, hall, shower room/wc, sitting room, dining room, boot room, kitchen/family room, utility room and conservatory on the ground floor. Externally, Marriners is approached through a five bar gate to a parking area for several cars plus an Oak framed double Heritage style garage. The gardens and grounds of approximately one acre (tbc) surround the property, which is fairly centrally located, and provide lawns plus a wealth of flowers, shrub, plants and bushes, strategically placed seating areas to take advantage of the glorious views, and an outdoor swimming pool. The property has been subject to meticulous and extensive upgrading by the present owners including relocating and refitting the kitchen/family room with contemporary units, refitting the bathroom with roll top bath, re-flooring and redecorating throughout. There are two loft areas, with potential for conversion, subject to consents and, in our opinion, with the space surrounding the property, there is undoubted potential to extend further, subject to the usual planning applications and consents.
