First time on the market in over 50 years - an attached Grade II Listed property, formerly 3 cottages and once a restaurant, now in need of complete modernisation situated in the Conservation Area of the Ancient Town and Cinque Port of Rye

DESCRIPTION The property has been in the same family ownership and is the first time on the market for over 50 years. An increasingly rare opportunity to purchase one of the last unrestored buildings in the Conservation Area. An attached Grade II Listed building presenting brick elevations set with sash windows beneath a pitched tiled roof. Formerly three cottages, the property was also a restaurant, however, that ceased to trade approximately 30 years ago, since then the interior of the building has fallen into disrepair and now requires complete renovation and modernisation throughout.

LOCATION Situated on one of the main approach roads in the Conservation Area of the Ancient Town and Cinque Port of Rye, renowned for its historical associations, medieval fortifications, including the Landgate and Ypres Tower, and fine period architecture with half-timbered houses clustered around the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin with its ornate gilded Quarter Boys clock and 18th century Town Hall with open arcaded lower storey and cupola on the roof. As well as its charm and history, the town has a comprehensive range of shopping facilities and an active local community, with the arts being strongly represented. Rye Festival is held annually. From the town there are local train services to Hastings and Eastbourne and also to Ashford from where there are high speed connections to London St. Pancras (37 minutes).

ACCOMODATION The rooms and layout can be seen on the floor plan. The rear courtyard garden has a large outbuilding/shed and there are steps with a gate leading out onto Turkey Cock Lane, a small pedestrian lane that links Conduit Hill to the Landgate and Hilder's Cliff.

AGENTS NOTE We advise viewers to take care when entering the building as some of the floors are uneven and weak in places. Care should also be taken in the rear garden which is also very uneven.
