SITUATION Tarq Cottage is situated in South Chailey with its thriving activities and a convenience store and post office. There is also a health centre and a popular public house just before the Green. The property is conveniently positioned between Haywards Heath, Uckfield and Lewes which provide a more comprehensive range of shopping facilities and recreational amenities, together with mainline train stations serving London. The A275 leads to the A272 which provides easy access to the M23, M25, Gatwick Airport and London. There are also many wellregarded schools in the area including Chailey St Peters Primary School and Chailey Secondary School, Cumnor House School in Danehill and Lewes Grammar School and local churches.

DESCRIPTION Tarq Cottage is an exquisite, terraced, single storey country cottage, enjoying stunning rural views across the countryside and farmland beyond and dating back to the 1840's.

Deceptively spacious to its outside appearance, it has been extensively modernised and refurbished to the highest of standards, whilst still retaining some of its charming, original features. A new off-road car parking area has been created for 2 cars, the front and back re-rendered, an oak porch fitted, the pitched roof completely replaced, bathroom fully refitted, kitchen fully refitted with quartz worktops and a breakfast bar, new UPVC double glazed windows throughout with bi-fold doors out to the garden, new carpets fitted in the bedrooms, amtico flooring fitted in the living room, a new combi boiler, amongst various other significant improvements. The cottage has also been completely re-wired and re-plumbed.

The front door opens into a spacious but cosy sitting room which includes a functioning fireplace, original brickwork and oak beam. Two good sized bedrooms lead off to the side of the sitting room. A hatch provides access to a fully boarded, large loft space. An arch way at the end leads to a large Kitchen/breakfast room and beyond the bathroom. Bi-fold doors from the kitchen open out onto a newly laid, indian sandstone patio, which wraps around the house, and beyond is a private lawn which includes a fine silver birch, apple and oak tree and various other established shrubs.

A single but deceptively spacious garage is attached on the other side of the adjoining property, which provides additional off-road parking. The garage is fitted with an electric roll up door and has power and water.
