Mill Cottage, Caldbec Hill, Battle, TN33 0JS

Under Offer



Mill Cottage is an absolutely charming, semi-detached cottage in one of Battle's most sought-after locations. Thought to date from the 17th Century, the house offers immense character and some extraordinary original features, whilst providing very practical accommodation. The house is set behind a deep front garden, which not only offers it privacy, but for a house of this great age, provides the rare bonus of off street parking. Once inside, the house immediately exudes charm in the Entrance Hall, with original oak beams and a glazed door to the Sitting Room. Here the impressive 'Inglenook' fireplace, with its huge oak beam above dominates the room and features a solid fuel burner. 2 leaded light windows look on to the front garden. Approached via the Inner Hall, with space for coats and boots, the Kitchen/diner is rustic in feel yet practical, with a walk in pantry and useful separate Utility room. There is another solid fuel burner, that requires some adaptation to function. Doors lead to the split level garden. The 2 double bedrooms on the first floor are supplemented by an unexpectedly spacious landing, that currently serves as a guest sleeping area, with all 3 areas served by a family bathroom with separate bathtub and shower. The rear garden is arranged over 2 levels and offers a surprising degree of privacy and being mainly paved is relatively low maintenance at present. Mill Cottage is sitauted within approximately 0.3 of a mile of Battle High Street with its ever-improving amenities and of course the historic Abbey.

The house is set back from Caldbec Hill, behind a deep front garden, with a path leading from the street and a gravel area providing parking, along with a lawn area in front of the house.

Rear Garden

To the rear of the house is what is perhaps a larger than expected garden, on two levels. The lower section is accessed form the kitchen and offers a private space for 'al fresco' dining and a brick garden store. Steps lead up to the larger raised section of garden, which is mainly paved with some brick planters and offers a surprisingly secluded haven.
