Property Flirt in Wisborough Green
Because who doesn't love a nosy around somebody else's house? This dreamy three-bed has a unique history, but can you guess the price?
We’ll admit to a vested interest in this one. This gorgeous cottage was once part of the village school which Muddy Sussex editor Cathy attended when she was knee-high to a grasshopper. It wasn’t quite as glam back then, she has fond memories of being given the day off school when the outside toilets froze over. These days she likes to dawdle past it in summer to admire the breathtaking courtyard garden.
Wisborough Green is one of the more desirable Sussex villages and named after its enormous village green, which forms a central and focal point for cricket, football, gatherings, celebrations and the general day-to-day of village life. It’s also home to two pubs, the Cricketers Arms on the green and the Bat & Ball up the road at Newpound. Also a stone’s throw away is Fishers Farm Park, perfect for entertaining the kids all year round.
This is the first time the property has been on the market since it was converted. The exterior still has the look of a Victorian school, but the stunning walled garden softens it somewhat.
Inside it’s character features galore – look at those windows. As befits a former school, it’s well-lit and very spacious. The open-plan living area makes it really flexible too.
It’s a generous three-bed, with fitted wardrobes throughout to save space.
The kitchen is generous too, if a bit busy, but there’s plenty of room for all your mod cons. There are two bathrooms, essential for a busy family.
But to our discerning eye it’s the walled courtyard garden that makes this truly special. It has to be seen to be fully appreciated but take our word for it, it’s one of the best the village has to offer.
So how much do you reckon then? Put your best guess in the comments below before checking on the Penfolds website – no cheating now!
