Hunters are proud to offer this beautiful, quaint, country cottage in the popular village, Pyecombe near to the fantastic pub ‘The Plough’, countryside South Downs walks and playing park. There are stunning far-reaching countryside views, front and back garden, one of which is currently used as a small farm area with vegetable patch, chickens & geese and a separate outbuilding/shed. There have been some *recent renovations’ including a brand new bathroom fitted and neutrally decorated throughout.
Pyecombe is simply a stunning country village on the cusp of the South Downs with some of the most fantastic hiking routes, picnic spots, and the best panoramic views you will ever see. The cottages here are characteristic, quirky, and very picturesque as this one is and the kerb appeal is fantastic.
This style home is absolutely perfect for anyone looking to live in a village location whilst needing to remain somewhere convenient and close to shops, train station and town centres. This would make an ideal home for a younger couple who are used to countryside living rather than the hustle and bustle of a busy town, or to bring their children up in the countryside. Likewise, anybody who is looking to downsize, move somewhere smaller or perhaps retire somewhere quiet and peaceful, this is absolutely perfect!
There are gardens to the front and back of this three bedroom terraced home – one of which (at the front) is used as a typical garden with lawn area, and a patio seating area which benefits from all-day sun whilst the rear garden is used to home chickens, geese, vegetable gardens and an out-building shed for storing tools/farm gear. Downstairs enters to a porch which opens to a fantastic county kitchen/diner with fitted units, roll-top worktop, space for white goods, good size larder cupboard, and a beautiful Welsh dresser which fits the space perfectly and will be staying. There is a brand new bathroom fitted with a new white suite, simple but tasteful tiled decor and black, tiled flooring. At the front of the property is a characteristic living area with benefits from all-day sun and a beautiful working fireplace.
Upstairs leads to two double bedrooms and a smaller, single bedroom which is ideal to be used as an office if you are now working from home. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room, working fireplace, and stunning far reaching views.
The Saxon name of ‘peac cumbe’ dates back to just after the Norman conquest. This cottage is within a stone’s throw of part of the original Manor House circa 16th century in the ancient village of Pyecombe. The cottage was occupied by workers on the Clayton Tunnel while being constructed between 1838 and 1841. It was originally a single storey building but in the late 1800s the upper floor was added to create 3 bedrooms so has a lovely mix of original layout with Victorian additions. If you like history, this cottage is the one for you.
