A rare opportunity to acquire an impressive and elegant Georgian house situated in the heart of the town’s conservation area. This special property has been listed with a grade II*status because of it’s important historical interest and architectural heritage. The property is situated within walking distance of the High Street with its extensive range of local services and amenities, including shops, supermarkets, cinema, restaurants and mainline rail services (London Bridge).
Standing in the shadow of Holy Cross Church, Copping Hall is understood to date back to the mid 18th century and is thought to have served the local community as a bakery, hence the close behind known as Puddingcake Lane. The blend of the character building and the contemporary accommodation has created a beautiful home of distinction.
The sitting room offers a calm and relaxing setting with an open fireplace, beautiful exposed timber flooring and double opening doors to the rear garden terrace. The dining room is wonderful for entertaining, looking out to the Church. There is an impressive inglenook fireplace with fitted wood-burner and a flagstone floor which continues through into the kitchen. This bright and airy room has an exposed beamed vaulted ceiling and is fitted with a range of smart contemporary style units and solid timber worksurfaces. There is a Rangemaster cooker, built-in microwave, integrated full height 'fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The former bread oven is now a feature with breakfast bar and shelving.
The side lobby has a useful cloakroom and access to the garden/garage (ideal for unloading your shopping!). The inner hall gives access to the cellar and has stairs rising to the first floor.
A central landing has doors leading to two double bedrooms both of which look out to the Church and are served by a family bath & shower room in a white suite comprising a roll-top bath, shower cubicle, basin and wc. The master bedroom has built-in wardrobes to one wall and there is a cast iron fireplace to the second bedroom. Stairs rise from the landing to the second floor where there are two further bedrooms again affording lovely views of the Church. The third bedroom has a sink and there is eaves storage to the fourth bedroom.
The rear garden is a much loved escape for the current owners. Lush planting creates a charming oasis of tranquillity and relaxation. The Mediterranean theme continues through the garden with sitting out areas to capture morning and afternoon sun.
There is also an outside office. A personal door leads to the garage and the pitched roof provides storage space. The gardens to both front and rear are stocked with an abundance of shrubs and perennials to give colour and variety through the year.
The area also provides schooling for all age groups for both state and private education, together with convenient access via the A22/A26 in all directions including the coastal resorts of Brighton and Eastbourne. The nearby Ashdown Forest with its 6000 acres of heathland has the most wonderful scenic walks.
