DescriptionThe Gate House is a simply gorgeous rural home, located within the picturesque village of Frant, in the High Weald AONB of East Sussex. The house oozes character and charm, with the beamed kitchen serving as the heart of the home with its access to the inner courtyard and other reception rooms. All the rooms are well-proportioned and are presented in first class condition, meaning that this house offers its new owners a fabulous period home, impeccably presented, with spacious accommodation and situated in a wonderful location.
AccommodationThe front door opens onto the entrance hall, which in turn leads to the WC / utility room. To the right is the kitchen, a really wonderful space which the current owners have opened up to create the much desired dine-in kitchen, and which has been fitted with a range of base units with open shelves above, a large larder cupboard and a marble effect worktop. The original floorboards that run through this room and the rest of the downstairs accommodation are a real feature of the property. There are double doors onto the inner courtyard, the perfect sun trap in which to relax and unwind or for children to play in complete safety. The walled courtyard also provides access to the brick built out-house, small conservatory and cellar, which totals just over 250 square feet.
Returning to the kitchen, a door leads to the two sitting rooms, the first of which has a dual aspect to the front of the house and garden, whilst the second has an open brick-built fireplace with woodburning stove within. Returning to the kitchen, the hidden stairway takes you up to the first floor, and the three double bedrooms that are found on this level, light and bright rooms, presented again in first class condition. The family bathroom is also situated on this floor, and is fitted with a bath, sink and WC, with elegant grey marble splash backs and tongue and groove panelling. Further stairs up lead to the fourth and final bedroom, with its en-suite shower room and range of fitted wardrobes, providing excellent additional storage space.
