LOCATION Set back off a no-through road in the Conservation Area of the Ancient Town of Winchelsea, one of the few examples of a bastide town in England based on the grid-iron street plan with wide, regular streets arranged around a giant square and the incomplete cathedral type church of St. Thomas the Martyr. Local facilities include the Little Shop convenience store, together with a primary school and public house. For more comprehensive facilities there is the Cinque Port of Rye (3 miles) with train services to Eastbourne and to Ashford International, from where there are high speed connections to St. Pancras, London in 37 minutes.

DESCRIPTION The property is a conversion and re-modelling of an existing detached interwar period building with substantial new additions to create a spacious, light-filled house which has a contemporary open plan feel whilst retaining the character in parts of the earlier structure to include exposed old pine floorboards and panelling. The building and refurbishment works are currently ongoing and nearing completion with high quality Lusso fittings to the en suite facilities and Nolte kitchen cabinets but a new owner would need to undertake the landscaping to the garden area. Further details upon request. The relevant planning reference is RR/2022/1904/P. In addition, the site benefits from planning consent for the erection of a pair of new two storey semi-detached houses (Planning ref: RR/2022/1917/P) although the property is being sold as a detached house with the opportunity to design and create a large garden.

GROUND FLOOR On the ground floor to the front of the house, there is a reception hall, a double aspect drawing room with a fireplace and double doors to the garden, a boot room, and a large double bedroom with an adjacent cloak/shower room.

To the rear is a fabulous open plan kitchen/ dining room and living room with a vaulted ceiling, wall mounted panoramic real flame glass fireplace tiled floor, glass wall and two sets of sliding doors to the garden. The kitchen area is fitted with an extensive range of Nolte cabinets, including a large island unit, comprising base cupboards and drawers with lacquered handless doors, matching eye-level cupboards, tall cupboards with blackened oak veneer grooved doors, two built in Siemens ovens, an integrated fridge freezer, marble resin work surfaces, an undermounted sink with mono tap and a combi-hob with an integrated extractor. Adjoining is a utility room with a fitted sink, work surface and space for a washing machine and tumble drier. Beyond is a cloakroom with contemporary fitments.

FIRST FLOOR On the first floor, there is a spacious landing and three double bedrooms, all with en suite facilities and Lusso fitments.

OUTSIDE The total plot size extends to about one third of an acre.
