The Property Partnership are delighted to present this exquisite Grade II Listed Georgian Townhouse. This immaculate home occupies a prime position in the heart of Rottingdean village, with views over the village green, Kipling Gardens and the duck pond.
Prospect Cottage is one of Rottingdean's most iconic houses, having been the home of the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir Edward Burne-Jones, whose blue plaque adorns the house. This grade two listed property has an enviable location on the Green, overlooking 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 and showcases a double aspect in many of the rooms. The property has been sympathetically modernised to incorporate a stylish kitchen, modern bathroom and a 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 beautiful 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 an enviable 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.
As you climb the stairs to the first floor you will find the master bedroom which features a delightful square bay window with a window seat which overlooks The Green. There is a well presented, fitted modern family bathroom and a separate shower room with a large walk-in shower cubicle.
The second floor offers two further double bedrooms, both with beautiful views of The Green and the 'Rudyard Kipling Gardens'. From the second-floor landing, a door leads out onto a pretty roof terrace from which you can spot the duck pond.
Rottingdean's quaint village high street, which has all the essential local amenities, is only a short stroll away. Just past the high street is Rottingdean Beach and the lovely undercliff walk to the Marina and Brighton. For those more attracted to the hustle and bustle, Brighton can be reached by hopping on one of the regular buses which passes through the village. All in all, this is not one to be missed.
