A characterful period cottage with a modern and contemporary self-contained annex situated in a semi-rural location with private gardens and off street parking


Westmeston is a quaint hamlet situated in the heart of the South Downs National Park with stunning views and an abundance of country walks with direct access onto the South Downs. The neighbouring village of Ditchling plays host to a selection of local shops, cafés, a church, post office, health centre and two public houses including The Bull, an award-winning gastro pub. The larger village of Hassocks, with its mainline train station is a short drive away and provides regular rail services to London and a more comprehensive array of shops and schooling for all ages.

This charming period cottage finished to a traditional ‘Sussex Style’ of flint and half hung tile is styled in a modern fashion yet still retains all the character of a property of its era. The current owners have installed an energy efficient infrared heating system throughout the property with modern wall and ceiling heat panels. The cottage has 2 reception rooms along with a kitchen on the ground floor. The first floor provides 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. Private gardens surround the property on 3 sides and comprise well stocked beds, raised vegetable beds and an area of lawn all bordered by mature hedgerow. There is the benefit of a studio/office in the rear garden and off-street parking to the front of the property. A large contemporary self-contained annex is situated at the end of the rear garden boasting a modern open plan kitchen/sitting room/bedroom along with a bathroom. With a sleek design including polished concrete worksurfaces and bi-fold doors this would make the perfect accommodation for relatives or an Airbnb.
