A substantial Victorian semi-detached house arranged over 4 floors boasting a wealth of period and character features within walking distance of the mainline train station
Lying at the foot of the South Downs, Keymer is a quaint village playing host to two churches, a village pub and a parade of local shops. The larger village of Hassocks with its mainline train station is a short walk away and provides regular rail services to London. The village of Ditchling is ¾ mile away, with traditional local shops, cafés and The Bull, an award-winning gastro pub. There are local state and private schools for all ages, including Downlands Community School, rated Outstanding in all areas.
This beautiful example of a semi-detached Victorian property is situated prominently at the upper end of Lodge Lane close to the centre of the village. Arranged over 4 floors, this spacious and character filled family house showcases a wealth of period features including high ceilings, ornate coving and fireplaces. The ground floor provides a kitchen with hand-built units and patio doors leading to the garden, along with a dining room and large utility room, which also has a door to the garden. On the first floor are 3 reception rooms, including a sizable sitting room with a large bay window and open fireplace with marble surround. There is also the benefit of a music room/bedroom 4 and study/bedroom 5 and a WC. The second floor enjoys 2 bedrooms along with a contemporary bathroom with a separate shower. There is a further bedroom on the second floor, with panoramic views of the South Downs, a shower room and an abundance of eaves storage. Timber decking adjoins the rear of the property, with an area of lawn bordered by mature trees and well stocked beds, beyond which is a further ”secret garden” with raised vegetable beds, productive fruit trees and a shed. A shingle driveway to the front of the property provides off street parking for 2 cars.
