Prospect Cottage is one of Rottingdeans most iconic houses, having been the home of the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir Edward Burne-Jones, whose blue plaque adorns the house. The grade two listed property has an enviable location on the Green, overlooking Kipling Gardens and the beautiful 13th century church, St Margarets, for which Burne-Jones designed many of the stained glass windows. The back of the property has sweeping views of the stunning Beacon Hill windmill.
The house is light and bright with double aspect in many of the rooms. The property has been sympathetically modernised to incorporate a stylish kitchen, modern bathroom and useful utility room, whilst much of the unique character features have been retained, such as fireplaces, cornicing and high ceilings.
On the ground floor, the front door opens into a hall with stairs rising to the first floor. An inner hall then leads into the sitting room, the principle reception room of the house. There is also an impressive guest cloakroom with an original style thunder-box WC.
Stairs lead down to the kitchen/dining room on the lower ground floor level. This is a lovely room, well fitted with a range of cupboards and houses an integral fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is space for a good size dining table and double doors open into a very big walk-in larder. A separate utility room is also on the lower ground floor as well as a large walk in 'pantry' style storage room.
The main bedroom is on the first floor and features a delightful square bay window with a window seat, overlooking The Green. There is a lovely fitted modern family bathroom and a separate shower room with a large walk-in shower cubicle and twin hand basins mounted on matching wooden pedestal cupboards.
The staircase rises to the second floor where there are two further double bedrooms, both with lovely high-up views of The Green and the 'Rudyard Kipling Gardens. From the second-floor landing, a door leads out onto a lovely roof terrace, which also looks directly out onto The Green and its charming duck pond.
Rottingdeans quaint village high street, which has all the required local amenities youd expect, is only a short stroll away. Just past the high street is Rottingdean Beach and the lovely undercliff walk to the Marina and Brighton. Alternatively, the hustle and bustle of Brighton can be reached by hopping on one of the regular buses that passes through the village. All in all, this is not one to be missed.
