A charming thatched 'Sussex Farmhouse' style property situated on a generous corner plot in this sought after prestigious location. The property has been a much loved family home and has not been available to the market since the 1950's. Throughout the house there are many original features including inglenook fireplace, beamed ceilings, original oak leaded windows and oak panelled internal doors with period hinge and latch detail, oak external and garage doors. The accommodation offers 4 bedrooms in all with two bedrooms sharing a bathroom on the ground floor, drawing room with inglenook fireplace, dining room, kitchen and utility room and master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room on the first floor with a further generous bedroom.
Above the garage is the 'apple store' which could be integrated into the main accommodation to enhance the master suite, subject to necessary consent. The thatch will require replacement and maybe worth considering adding extra windows to the rear pitch to make the most of the views towards The Creek. Although Kite Hill Court does require some updating it has recently been electrically rewired and has also had a Vaillant gas boiler installed in recent years for the central heating. The house is set in a generous corner plot with garage and parking.
