It is currently let as a boutique Bridal Wear shop. The property benefits from quiet neighbours as one adjacent building is unoccupied after 5 p.m. and the restaurant, on the other side, is soundproofed.

This area provides plenty of space for family and sociable dining and has a contemporary stable door, opening onto a south-facing decked area.
BASEMENT FLOOR: There is also a very useful and large cellar, with excellent head height, which is accessed from the ground-floor hallway, that provides excellent storage or work space, currently fitted as a utility room.
FIRST FLOOR: A light and airy living room, which is dual aspect, has contemporary bi-fold doors opening onto the south-facing balcony, with a fabulous elevated aspect over a village Green, children's playground, tennis courts and the Downs beyond. This tastefully decorated room also has plenty of storage space and a contemporary multi-fuel burning stove. There is also an excellent-sized, elegant master bedroom with character bay window and a feature cast iron fireplace, a further double bedroom looking to the south and additional WC.
SECOND/THIRD FLOOR: A large refitted bathroom with Jacuzzi spa bath, Italian ceramics and large separate shower enclosure is on the half landing and 2 further bedrooms are on the third level; one being a good double, with large built-in storage and the other a comfortable single.
EXTERNALLY: Comprised of a pleasant decked area ideal for alfresco dining, a pretty courtyard garden and a large, insulated, garage/workshop, with power and light. To the rear is a shingled driveway with parking for 2 cars.
The residential element makes ideal family accommodation and/or an excellent investment property, capable of achieving c. £2,000-£2,500 pcm.
