Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to introduce this highly attractive house on the outskirts of Barcombe to the open market. The property, originally a lodge, has a double garage with original sliding doors and attractive entrance area to an iconic full-depth hallway. The house has a large sitting room and dining room which connects to the modern kitchen/breakfast room and utility. The front of the house has a study/bedroom 4 and cloakroom. The first floor has a large luxury bathroom and 3 large double bedrooms, all with magnificent country views in all directions, but long-reaching to the front. There is potential for a first floor roof extension for a 4th bedroom/2nd bathroom. There is a large driveway for at least 3 cars as well as the garage which could be converted into further accommodation. The rear garden is approximately 66ft (20.12m) south facing and onto a rear field, with a newly built fully insulated home office. The house has many original features and oil fired central heating.
Winchmore is approximately 1/2 mile from the centre of Barcombe village, just over a mile from Cooksbridge Railway Station (London Victoria 1 hour & London Bridge 80 mins), with a much increased service since December 2019. The property is in a rural location overlooking open fields in a delightful location and yet the village is close, with an excellent shop and primary school, a pub, recreation ground, church and village hall with excellent community activities. There are immediate stunning country walks, with The Rainbow at Cooksbridge in the other direction! The ex-market and county town of Lewes is approximately 4 miles distant with its historical and cultural attractions, period buildings, individual shops, cafes and restaurants as well as the mainline Railway Station alongside the superb Depot Cinema.
