A charming brick and flint cottage in need of modernisation in lovely Falmer village, with spectacular views of the Downs

A lovely brick and flint detached cottage that was formerly a railway worker’s house. The railway line from London to Brighton was opened in 1841 and then moved a kilometre west in 1865; the cottage remains from its original setting and is now situated in isolation, with footpath access into Falmer village. The property is surrounded by Downland, being located right on the edge of the South Downs National Park, whilst still being accessible by road and rail to Brighton and Lewes, or further afield including Gatwick or London. The setting feels wonderfully rural and there are magnificent views over the surrounding downs.

The cottage is somewhat dated and offers a fantastic opportunity for improvement, set within a generous plot that would afford space to extend (subject to obtaining the necessary consents). The current layout as it stands comprises a glazed porch opening to a kitchen/breakfast room, a good-size reception room and a conservatory to the rear with lovely views. Upstairs there is a double bedroom, bathroom and two smaller bedrooms. Within the grounds there is an outbuilding incorporating the garage and an office, shower room and first-floor storage space which offers good annexe potential.
