Bedrooms: 3
A handsome three-bedroom detached home situated in the highly desirable village of Ditchling with idyllic countryside walks on the doorstep and within easy reach of the Hassocks mainline station. The property has a bright and spacious arrangement which lends itself well to families affording more than 1400 sq ft across two floors with generous living space, three sizeable bedrooms and a larger than average westerly facing garden to the rear. The home is well presented internally yet offers excellent potential for modernisation and personalisation by the new owner with good scope to extend further if desired (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).

The ground floor accommodation is accessed via a welcoming entrance hall with WC leading through to a bright and spacious sitting room with brick fireplace and sliding doors out to the rear patio, adjoining study, well-sized dining room and traditional fully fitted kitchen with adjacent breakfast room. Occupying the first floor is the principal bedroom benefitting from fitted wardrobes, a second good-size bedroom, a smaller bedroom which has great potential to be utilised as a child's bedroom or home office and a family shower room.


The home is set back from the road behind a private paved driveway providing off-street parking for several vehicles with a large level lawn edged with mature trees and hedges with access to an integral single garage. The westerly facing rear garden is a great size and is mostly laid to lawn flanked with wide and varied borders comprising bedding plants and shrubs with a spacious patio perfectly designed for outdoor dining, enclosed by established trees and tall hedging affording a high degree of seclusion.
