Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to announce the new marketing of Cobbe Place Cottage. This Grade II listed property has been in the same ownership for approximately 40 years as a much loved and extended family home, but also has huge potential for a separate annex or holiday lets, with conversion of a barn property, all subject to planning permission. The property has a southerly extension, creating a surprisingly large house with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a separate w.c. The ground floor has 4 good size reception rooms as well as a kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, utility room and boiler room. There is an attractive front entrance area with lawn which wraps around the property to the east. There is also a 2-level paved patio and pond. There is an outside studio, open double car port and a flint single storey building with the potential for converting into holiday lets or plans for conversion to a 3 bedroom annex with a private garden (subject to planning permission). There is a separate 1.7 acre paddock and a further field adjoining (rented on a peppercorn rent), leading to Beddingham Church.
The property is in a semi-rural location on the A26 from the roundabout near Glynde down to Newhaven and Seaford beyond. The views from the property are outstanding, over fields and across to the church and on to Mount Caburn. There are also excellent walks nearby including the South Downs Way. Lewes is just 2 miles distant, an easy trip via the A27, with its historic centre including an excellent range of independent shops, 3 superstores, Leisure Centre and open-air swimming pool, Depot Cinema, cafes and restaurants, as well as the mainline Railway Station (London Victoria 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins). Closer still, is Glynde Railway Station, which is only one stop from Lewes and offers easy parking.
