SALE AGREED WITHIN A WEEK WITH JONATHAN AT THE AGENCY UK ** PLEASE WATCH THE PROPERTY VIDEOS AND NAVIGATE THE 3D VIRTUAL TOUR ** A well presented one bedroom ground floor flat with its own private entrance set within a historic house built in 1905.


A well presented one bedroom ground floor flat with its own private entrance set within a historic house built in 1905. This share of freehold flat has character features and high ceilings throughout, and is located in North Chailey. The accommodation comprises in short of; one bedroom with feature fireplace, bathroom, fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, large living/dining room with bay window and feature fireplace, and a garage en bloc with power and light. There is a well maintained south facing communal garden which is tended to throughout the year. There is resident parking, and further parking infront and inside the garage if desired.

The Flat

You enter the flat through the private front door, and into a hallway where all of the rooms radiate from. To the left of the hallway is the bathroom. The bathroom has a frosted window, white panelled bath with shower attachment over, wash hand basin, W/C with original high cistern and a heated towel rail. Directly opposite the bathroom is the bedroom. This room is large measuring 16ft x 14ft, and has a high ceiling which contributes further to the feeling of space. The room is double aspect with a window and glazed double doors which lead directly out onto the communal grounds. The room has a character iron fireplace with wood surround and a decorative ceiling rose. The kitchen is again off the hallway and measures 12ft x 9ft. The kitchen comprises of; a wide range of wooden cupboards, wall and base units which provide a large amount of storage, under counter lights, work surface space, one and a half bowl sink and drainer unit, integrated under counter fridge, space for freestanding cooker with extractor above, space and plumbing for a washing machine. There is a useful breakfast bar allowing seating for two, and a window which overlooks the communal grounds beyond.

The living/dining room is a simply stunning room and is certainly the ‘wow’ room in this property. It measures 18ft x 18ft and faces due south, resulting in this room being bathed in natural daylight for much of the day. There is a large bay window and a window to the side of the room both offering wonderful views over the communal grounds. There is a cast iron feature fireplace and character ceiling rose, which accompanied with the high ceilings, complete the feeling of grandeur in this room. The room is so large that it can accommodate a variety of living and dining room furniture.

This completes the internal accommodation.


Outside to the back of the house is the main parking for the six flats. Although not allocated, there is plenty of room for each flat to be able to park one car in this area.
There is a block of six garages, and my clients owns the garage on the far left of the block. It has full power and light installed, and my clients has another fridge and a dryer plugged into the garage. This enables the garage to be used as utility space if desired. The garage can also be used to park a car, and another car potentially parked infront of the garage if desired.

There are also two communal washing lines located next to the garages which residents are encouraged to use.

The communal grounds span all around the building. A gardener is employed by Red House Management Ltd to tend to the communal grounds fortnightly throughout the entire year. The grounds are therefore consistently kept and maintained to a high standard which all residents can enjoy all year round. Residents tend to put their outside furniture close to their flat, and my client is no exception with her utilising the area of garden by her bedroom door to call her own.

Chailey Common

Chailey Common is one of the largest heathland commons in the South of England, covering 450 acres and was designated as a Local Nature Reserve in 1966. It has also been made a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its heathland plants and diverse insect and bird communities.

Chailey Common was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 and was used over a long period of time by local people for cutting wood and bracken for fuel and grazing livestock. The current common is split into five sections; Memorial Common, Pound Common, Romany Ridge Common, Red House Common and Lane End Common to the north which is detached from the rest lying east of the A275 and north of the minor road to Fletching. Access is not open though the public can use the existing tracks and footpaths through each of the commons.

Red Common is located literally the other side of the road from Red House and can be reached within a minutes walk. To have direct access to this much open space walkable directly from your own doorstep is very rare and makes this property extremely unique in its location.


Chailey is a village and parish in the Lewes District. The parish consists of the settlements; South Chailey, South Street, Chailey and North Chailey.

It is surrounded by Chailey Common Nature Reserve and has footpaths and bridleways linking with the neighbouring districts and provides good access by road to a number of the surrounding towns. North Chailey has a petrol station with convenience shop about a 15 minute walk away.

It is an old coaching house dating back many hundred of years.

Slightly further down the A275 past the Five Bells is a McCollS convenience store which is only a 5 minute drive from the house (2.7 miles). The Rainbow pub and carvery in Cooksbridge is only 5.3 miles away further along again on the A275 and the historic town of Lewes with all of its pubs, restaurants and shops is only a 17 minute drive down the A275 from the flat.

The Shell Petrol station is located 0.7 miles away from the flat and is roughly a 15 minute walk. It has a Londis store in the petrol station and therefore is always stocked with essential items that one might need.

Nearby Newick

From the property the larger village of Newick is 2miles away (6 minute drive or 45 minute walk). Newick is a wonderful quintessential Sussex village. It has three thriving village pubs – The Crown, The Bull and The Royal Oak.

The village even has its own doctors surgery and a Kamsons Pharmacy.

The residents of Newick are a fantastic mix of ages with the village school and pre-school (both rated Outstanding by Ofsted) bringing in young families through to the retired. Even though the village may be small in its number of residents, it packs a huge punch with the amount of clubs and societies that are on offer for all ages. The annual Newick Bonfire night is extremely well regarded and thousands of people from all around Sussex flock to this event year on year. The village has strong rugby and cricket teams and as such sport runs through the veins of the village. The sports playing field with its cricket, rugby and football pitches, pavilion and bar and adjacent children’s playground is a hive of activity throughout the year as it plays host to many a sporting activity or social event, particularly on a summers Friday evening when the children have cricket lessons and the parents meet to picnic and sip prosecco.
