“We’ve lived in and loved our home since 1978 and bought the cottage because of the prime location and how quiet it is. We love to sit out in the garden and enjoy the sunshine and countryside views but didn’t want to be too far from the shops and local pub so this ticked all our boxes.

We would love to stay here longer but it’s just too big for us now and we would love to move to a bungalow.” – Richard & Mary
Hunters are proud to offer this amazing opportunity for a 1896 three storey, character cottage in a quiet development with just five other properties surrounded by acres of countrywide in Ditchling Common. There are bags of character from the moment you step foot through the front door and a great deal of potential throughout as well as a plenty of parking for 3 or 4 cars.
Briefly, downstairs opens to an entrance hall with access to a downstairs bedroom (which could be used as a living area if preferred), separate dining room, and extended rear kitchen which is fitted with an in-keeping fitted kitchen, roll top worktop, space for white goods and leads to a separate utility area. The garden is just beautiful and a great place to sit and soak up the all-day sun. It is easy to maintain due to the simple design and offers a patio area, large lawn and a good size summer house at the end.
Leading to the first floor is a separate study/office with a storage cupboard at the top of the stairs and what the current owners have been using as their lounge – a huge 23ft long, dual aspect room with centrepiece, characteristic chimney breast with open fireplace and far-reaching views from each angle. You could change the layout and make two separate bedrooms if you chose to but the room does lend to be an incredible living area. There is also a family bathroom on this level with a simple champagne suite and tiled decor.
Finally, to the second floor which leads to the two double bedrooms, each with the characteristic chimney breast, a single bedroom and a family shower room.
Originally built as accommodation for the management of Ditchling Common Terracotta and Tile Works means that this house comes with a fantastic story and overflows with character. There is some work needed and some updating throughout so is absolutely perfect for anybody looking to develop something, add their own stamp but be well away from any noise and just enjoy living amongst the quiet countryside.
We would be delighted to offer you a completely free of charge property appraisal, without any obligation what-so-ever, to help you understand where your home fits within the current market place.
