Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are pleased to introduce Ferndale to the market. This detached property was built in the 1920s in a Victorian style and has been extended to the rear on the ground floor adding two superb vaulted ceiling reception rooms to the existing two reception rooms. The property also has a full-width master bedroom to the second floor with ensuite cloakroom having 2 basins and w.c., and a further two large double bedrooms, study/landing and bathroom on the first floor. The property has immense character and has an ‘old style' kitchen on the ground floor, however the rear extension could be opened up into a huge open-plan kitchen/living room with a ground floor shower room. The house has a front garden, laying back from the road, and the rear garden is approximately 115' depth with fruit trees, lawn, vegetable gardens and a large timber workshop/store and further outbuildings.

Ferndale has rural views and yet is located in central Cooksbridge, just a few hundred yards from Cooksbridge Railway Station, linking to Lewes and additional trains shortly giving a regular service to London (Victoria 1 hour & London Bridge 90 mins). The village has a highly popular primary school, a service station with shop, modern village hall and two public houses at each end of the village. The historical country town of Lewes is approximately three miles distant, also with a mainline train service, and offers many cultural facilities and an excellent range of independent shops, three superstores, cafes, restaurants, public houses and the superb Depot Cinema.
