Situated in the sought-after, semi-rural village of South Chailey, Hunters proudly present this generously proportioned 1930’s semi-detached 3-bedroom home, boasting versatile living spaces and abundant outdoor areas.

This magnificent three-bedroom semi-detached house is nestled in a semi-rural setting on the southern fringes of the South Chailey village. Ideally located within a 10-minute drive to the historical town centre of Lewes, locals and tourists enjoy its quirky independent Shops, Antique Stores, Coffee Houses, Pubs and Bars, as well as the charity-run Cinema & Entertainment Hub ‘The Depot’. Lewes is serviced by Southern Rail across the coast and up to London Bridge & Victoria. Cygnus Cottage is equidistant between Lewes & Haywards Heath Railway Station, so ideally placed for commuting.

Nearby you’ll find some great country walks on the various Chailey Commons, with several local pubs (The Five Bells in South Chailey, The Rainbow in Cooksbridge. and The Plough at Plumpton, and The Royal Oak in Newick to name a few) all in a short walk or drive.

Nestled away from the road and safeguarded by a spacious gate designed for vehicular access, this residence showcases an impressive front garden complete with a multi-car driveway, a well-maintained lawn, and convenient on-road parking nearby. The front of the property offers access to the house via a spacious front porch which leads into a hallway with stairs ascending to the first floor, and doors into the downstairs accommodation. On the right is a third bedroom or second reception room, currently used as an office. The living area is a lovely size, and features a wood-burning stove, exposed wood flooring and patio doors to the rear garden. There are also two storage cupboards. The rear kitchen is a newer addition, with shaker-style units, wood-effect laminate worktops, a utility cupboard which houses the boiler, door into the downstairs WC, door to the side of the house, integrated stainless steel sink and drainer with hose tap and freestanding space for a cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer.

Ascending to the first floor, you’ll find a landing area that separates the two bedrooms, each of which boasts built-in wardrobes. Moreover, on this level, there is a generously proportioned family bathroom, partially tiled and equipped with a storage cupboard, a bathtub featuring an Aqualisa Power Shower, a toilet, and a sink.

As you step outside, you’ll discover a spacious patio area adjacent to the house, perfect for relaxation during the warmer months, along with a lawn and picturesque tree-lined views in the rear, offering ample opportunities for landscaping. This property also boasts a rare and distinctive feature – an observatory. It comes complete with a retractable roof, plumbing and is fully wired for electricity and lighting. This space can easily be transformed into a home office, or even better, a dedicated hot tub room. Additionally, there’s a separate air-conditioned office space situated towards the rear, accessible by descending some stairs, providing versatility for various uses.

All-in-all, we’re excited to launch this versatile semi-rural home with no onward chain.
