VINE COTTAGES, BISHOPSTONE VILLAGE – £675,000
The delightful downland village of Bishopstone lies within the South Downs National Park, and is little more than a mile from the sea. 125 Vine Cottage lies well off the road on an unmade-track beside the Egg and the church, and has glorious views over open countryside as well as across the Egg (village green).
The original house is thought to be one of the oldest in the village, and possibly dates from the late 1500s. It seems likely to have been named after Lord Pelham’s Steward John Vine, and John Vine left Pelham’s service in 1638. It is now two attached’ flint cottages, and as can easily be seen from outside, part of Vine Cottage 125 is the end of that original house.
The property has been extended and improved over the years, yet retains a wealth of character, including a low-level beamed ceiling, several thumb-latched doors, and possibly original floor tiles in the dining room.
The ground floor can be accessed from the front and the side of the cottage.
Accommodation comprises: entrance porch, dining room, kitchen, sitting room, lobby hallway leading to study, within which is a downstairs cloakroom.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms, a spacious landing and the bathroom (down two steps). Loft access is from the landing via a fitted loft ladder. Loft is partially boarded and has an electric light.
Other features include an oil-fired Stanley range providing cooking, hot water and central heating, and two Clearview wood-burning stoves, one in the dining room and one in the sitting room.
The property has a large garden backing west, with flint boundary walls and picturesque front, side and rear gardens.
There is a tool shed built into the brick and flint wall at the end of the back garden, as well as a small wooden shed next to a substantial log-store on the side wall of the cottage.
