SITUATION The property lies at the end of a private shared drive off Birchgrove Road , 2 miles, to the north of Horsted Keynes,with its village shop, public houses and village school. Forest Row is 4.5 miles and beyond East Grinstead on the A22, 8 miles away. The M25 at Godstone is 18 miles, and to the west Gatwick and the M23 are 12 miles. Haywards Heath with its main line station is 7 miles. A particular feature also is the immediate proximity of Ashdown Forest.

DESCRIPTION 2 Hamewith Cottages was originally a traditional and rented Estate Cottage on the adjoining Historic Birch Grove Estate. Following recently obtaining vacant possession the property has been very substantially improved and modernised including overhauling the roof, installing double glazing and carpeting throughout. Brick steps on the side of the house now lead up to double glazed doors into an efficiently fitted kitchen with a door to the living room with a fireplace. Stairs with a deep understairs cupboard lead up to two comfortable bedrooms and a luxury fitted bathroom. The hatch to the insulated loft space provides useful storage.

The property offers enormous potential for an extension similarily to that added to the adjoining semi-detached cottage, subject to planning.

OUTSIDE The lane down to the property has no registered owner but does not lead on elsewhere. It is a public footpath which passes through the corner of the parking area newly created in front of the cottage for this property's sole use. A private lawned garden has post & rail and panel fencing together with boundary trees and bushes curling around the property and a useful chalet building on the terrace beside the house offers an outside studio/office space.

TENURE AND POSSESSION The property is freehold with vacant possession on completion.

FIXTURES AND FITTINGS All fixtures, fittings and chattels whether referred to or not are specifically excluded from the sale. The fitted carpets and all kitchen units are included.
