Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to present this charming period house, being the end one of three on this quiet lane. The property is tucked away with a deceptively large garden, which is divided into two sections to the rear and an attractive south facing patio to the side. The cottage has extraordinary character, with 3 bedrooms (2 double) on the first floor, bathroom, and a separate cloakroom. Parts of the property date back to the Tudor period, being a shop in past times, at the historic heart of Rodmell. The ground floor has an entrance hall leading to a full depth sitting room of 17ft with a period fireplace and a double aspect. There is a second sitting room beyond, opening to the conservatory which is currently used as a study and a modern downstairs shower room with utility area. To the south of the house is a double aspect dining room which leads to the fitted kitchen and garden. There is a potential parking space to the front of the property, as well as a small timber garage. The property has oil central heating.

Rodmell is an idyllic village and this property is placed in a most picturesque northern section. This part of Rodmell mainly has attractive period properties, and it was home to the writer Virginia Woolf, who lived in Monks House. The village has superb walks across open fields and to the banks of the River Ouse, or up through the village directly onto the Downs. The village has an excellent public house and village hall, and Iford and Kingston primary school is close by via the C7, which also links to beaches on the South Coast. Lewes is some 4 miles distant, with its historic core of period properties, including shops, inns, café's, restaurants and the Depot Cinema. Lewes Railway Station is to the south side of the town, easily reached from Rodmell, connecting to London Bridge (90 mins), Brighton (20 mins). There is also the 123 bus service which runs between Newhaven and Lewes, which serves Rodmell and Kingston.
