An imposing Edwardian family home with original features and secluded landscaped gardens in a sought-after position within the village of Ditchling.

73 North End has a fabulous setting on the northern edge of Ditchling village, moments from the thriving village centre and with footpaths on the doorstep. The handsome and imposing Edwardian property is set within beautifully landscaped gardens, made to feel exceptionally private by high hedges and mature trees to screen the outside spaces from view. The elegant interiors have been sympathetically modernised to create a stylish and well-appointed home, while accommodating a raft of character features such as cast iron fireplaces with wood surrounds, traditional planked doors and timber-framed leadlight windows. The first-floor space above the garage offers excellent versatility.
The accommodation is generously proportioned and provides ample space for family life, entertaining and working from home, with a flexible layout affording three generous reception rooms, as well as the welcoming and informal kitchen for relaxed dining. The house has been extensively renovated throughout by the
vendor, including extensions to the side and rear to create larger living spaces, and there is further planning permission to create a two-storey extension on the back of the house (ref LW/04/1740). The ground floor is accessed via an internal porch onto a welcoming reception hall, with a sitting room and snug to either
side – both warmed by wood-burning stoves. To the rear there is the fantastic family room, which has bifold doors opening to the garden and is currently set up as a cinema room including built in or fixed rear speakers and the screen (3.85m wide)– perfect for family movie nights. The kitchen/dining room also has its own access to the garden and is appointed with bespoke Rencraft oak cabinets and floors, with an adjoining laundry room for washing and drying machines and shower room with WC. Upstairs there are four good-size bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom.

Outside
The house is set within beautifully landscaped gardens with high hedges and trees all around the boundary. To the front, a gravel driveway provides ample offstreet parking and there is a detached garage with a gym space to the rear and a first-floor room which offers great versatility as a home office, studio or storage space. The rear garden is wonderfully private and has a large lawn and a large terrace for outdoor dining.

Situation
The picturesque downland village of Ditchling lies just 1.6 miles from the famous Ditchling Beacon and its
surrounding nature reserve in the South Downs National Park. The village has a variety of local shops, including
arts and craft workshops, a museum and Post Office, plus The Larder, an excellent delicatessen selling local
produce, and cafes such as The Green Welly. In addition, there are pubs including The Bull and The White Horse, a village church and a primary school. A wider range of shops is available at Hassocks, about two miles to the east, which also has a mainline train station to London Bridge/Victoria (approximately 55 minutes). The city of Brighton and the South Coast are about nine miles distant. The M23/A23 provides good access to Gatwick and the national motorway network. There are a number of excellent schools in the area, including St. Margaret’s Primary School in Ditchling, Downlands Community Secondary School in Hassocks, Hurstpierpoint College, Burgess Hill School for Girls and Brighton College.
