A rare opportunity to rent, what is believed to be, the oldest house in Sussex. Dating back to the 1420s, The Old Thatch is a timber framed Grade ll listed building still boasting many interesting and original features.
The property is located in the sought after village of Sedlescombe and is within easy reach of Hastings, with it’s comprehensive range of shopping, sporting, recreational facilities and mainline railway station. The property enjoys the benefits of a village location, yet the A21 is less than one mile from the house so offering easy access also to the town of Battle and it’s mainline railway station, with regular trains into London taking 1hr and 17mins.
Once a Medieval Hall House having an upper floor added in 1509. The property is entered through a shared entrance hall with the Annexe next door, to a pretty entrance hall with a window seat enjoying garden views, through to a sitting room with dining area, with large inglenook fireplace. The study leads from the sitting room and also boasts a large inglenook fireplace and storage cupboards. There are two staircases leading to the upper floor, one from the study which takes you to the first double bedroom which benefits from a wash handbasin and exposed fireplace brickwork. The master bedroom is interlinked to the first bedroom and boasts an impressive vaulted ceiling and exposed chimney brickwork. The third bedroom is accessed from the second staircase from the sitting room, but also from the master bedroom so could therefore be an extension to the master bedroom as a dressing area.
The bathroom is downstairs and has a roll-top bath and overhead shower, there is a separate WC.
The modern kitchen overlooks the garden and boasts a Butler sink, range oven, and integrated appliances.
There is a large rear garden which has a pond fed by a natural spring.
