This charming Grade II listed, period house located in the highly sought after village of East Dean is set in an elevated position affording stunning Downland views. The house exudes character with many period features including the old bakery oven in the reception hall and feature fireplaces.
There is an excellent welcoming reception hall with lovely exposed flint work giving immense charm as soon as you walk into the house. The sitting room, the first of two elegant reception rooms, has a pretty bow window with lovely views. The feature open fireplace adds atmosphere for those colder nights. The spacious country style well fitted kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the house with plenty of room for a growing family and entertaining friends. There is a good sized utility room for those everyday needs.
If you prefer more formal dining then the second reception room is excellent for this but it can also be used as a family room if required. Additionally, on this floor, is a family bathroom with shower.
On the first floor is the main bedroom with double fitted wardrobes and matching book case with a pretty garden view. There are a further 3 bedrooms and a modern family bathroom.
The gardens have been lovingly landscaped and there is an abundance of mature flower and shrub borders to the rear of the property with different seating areas to take the best advantage of the stunning views. There are several out buildings including 2 flint and brick garden stores and a timber framed garden shed. We are advised there is an allotment garden 40 yards along the lane from the house and is available for use by the residents of The Old Bakehouse. There is also a parking forecourt providing ample space for 2 cars.
East Dean lies within the well established South Downs National Park. The Old Bakehouse is located in a Conservation
Area on a quiet lane leading directly on to the Downs with no through traffic, but only 100 yards from the picturesque village
green with its range of amenities including the Tiger Inn, restaurant, delicatessen and cafe. Other village facilities include general store/post office, newsagent, dispensing doctors' practice and veterinary surgery.
There is easy access on foot to the surrounding Downlands, the sea at Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters cliffs which afford endless recreational opportunities for walkers and nature lovers. Combined with its tranquil setting, there is a vibrancy to East Dean with many social events at the
village hall as well as a weekly farmers market.
Eastbourne is only about 3 miles distance offering a wide range of amenities
including state and private schools. There are mainline railway services to London Victoria and Gatwick and there is an excellent bus service to Brighton and Eastbourne. Channel
ferries are at Newhaven and Opera is at Glyndebourne.
