A picturesque semi detached house lying in a peaceful position within the South Downs National Park.
Glebeland Cottage is understood to date from the 1920's with later additions and provides light and well-arranged accommodation over two floors. The entrance porch leads through into a welcoming entrance hall with wooden panelling. Approached from the entrance hall is the 22' triple aspect sitting room which has a pretty fireplace with a wood burning stove.
The kitchen is fitted with an attractive range of cream painted units with polished granite work surfaces and includes an integrated fridge, freezer, dishwasher and a Britannia two-oven range with six gas hobs. A wide opening leads through to the semi-open plan double glazed dining room/conservatory from which there is a lovely outlook over the garden. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms - all of which have glimpses towards the sea - and a family bathroom.
Other features within the house include oak floors in the entrance porch and kitchen, some exposed timbers and underfloor heating in both the dining room/conservatory and bathroom. From the house there are some lovely views over the surrounding unspoilt Downland countryside.
The property is approached via a no-through lane from which a wooden five-bar gate leads to the property's private entrance drive which leads through the front garden and past the side of the house to a parking area. To one end of the parking area there is a single garage with an electrically operated door. Adjacent to the garage is a Heritage style car port and a garden store/workshop.
The garden has been beautifully planted and landscaped and includes a picturesque pond with water lilies, numerous well-stocked and colourful beds, two good sized lawns, a 'bug hotel', a further pond and a 'secret' kitchen garden with two raised beds, composting bin, greenhouse and a paved terrace.
Glebeland Cottage lies in an elevated position on the edge of the picturesque village of Friston, which is situated within the South Downs National Park. Friston lies just to the north west of East Dean with its range of local shops and amenities, cricket ground and well regarded public house - The Tiger Inn.
The surrounding Downland, together with Friston Forest and the nearby Seven Sisters Country Park, provide many miles of spectacular countryside and coastline for walking and recreation. The coastal town of Eastbourne, about 4 miles to the east providing a comprehensive range of shops and facilities, together with a mainline station to London (London Victoria/London Bridge in about 1 hour 30 minutes).
Travelling west on the A259 from the centre of Eastbourne to Seaford, continue past the village of East Dean. Proceed up Friston Hill and on the brow of the hill immediately after the church on your left and immediately before the pond also on your left, turn left signposted Crowlink (Crowlink Lane). Proceed down Crowlink Lane for just under 0.2 mile and the driveway marked Glebeland Cottage will be found on the right.Read all
