Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are pleased to bring to the market Paddock House, a property improved beyond recognition. The property offers a luxurious lifestyle with a real country feel, looking over countryside to three sides across open fields and long-ranging rural views to the west. The house has two double bedrooms to the first floor with exposed beams, one having ensuite cloakroom and there are three/four large reception spaces on the ground floor, depending on how you wish to use the accommodation. The south facing sitting room, originally two rooms, is 28' x 16' max (7.93m x 4.88m) with a cast iron wood-burner. The kitchen/family room is magnificent with vaulted ceilings, a central island to add to up-to-date fittings including cooker range and room for sofa and table looking out to the garden. In the morning there is a conservatory reception area for morning coffee and a paved seating area to the west garden to watch nature with a barbeque and glass of wine. But, the addition of the 23' x 14' (7.01m x 4.27m) independent room with ensuite shower gives ultimate flexibility to already superb accommodation and without adaption would be an annex for dependant or au pair. The garden is approximately one third of an acre with a long drive, a modern two-berth oak framed car barn and there are two studio/office outbuildings for his and hers working office/workshop/studios of high quality, to add to the chicken coop and attractive lawn, borders and west line of Oak trees.
Chiddingly is a special rural village with primary school, village store, beautiful cricket ground with stone church overlooking and a celebrated public house.

There is also Uckfield and Hailsham towns that easily connect to the village, offering good town facilities.
