Strutt and Parker - £780,000

Brook Furlong, Sloe Lane, Alfriston, is a Georgian fronted property and understood to date from the 1800s, with later additions, and was built for the village miller.

Externally, the house presents attractive grey and red brick elevations, with part tile hung upper elevations under a mainly pitched tile roof.

Internally, the house provides elegant, light and well proportioned accommodation over three floors which is now in need of some updating.

As with many Georgian properties, a particular feature is the symmetrical layout of the accommodation.

Brook Furlong features a well proportioned drawing room which leads into a double aspect sitting room, both with brick fireplaces (currently not in use).

To each end of this room are large sash windows overlooking the front and rear gardens.

The conservatory, with underfloor heating, is accessed from the sitting room and has double doors giving access onto the garden.

There is a good size dining room with a fireplace, which leads through to the kitchen with a gas fired Aga and a useful pantry.

The cellar is accessed via a staircase from the sitting room.

The ground floor accommodation is complemented on the first floor by a generous master suite with dressing room and bathroom, two further bedrooms and a large shower room.

There are two attic rooms on the second floor which could be used as bedrooms.

From the lane, a pedestrian gate gives access to the front garden, which is bordered on three sides by a Grade II listed flint wall and a brick path leads to the front door.

The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature and well-stocked flower beds set within the flint wall with a magnificent yew tree.

On the west side of the property and adjacent to the conservatory, is a paved seating area from which a paved path leads to the rear garden.

The rear garden is slightly raised and mainly laid to lawn and is enclosed with the same listed flint wall on three sides.

There are two timber sheds at either end of the garden.

Also from the lane, double wooden gates give access to the rear entrance and yard which provides parking for one car and leads to the brick, weatherboard and flint outbuilding (9m x 3.6m).

This building is currently being used as garaging for two cars (tandem).

The property extends in all to about 0.25 acre.
