A rare opportunity to purchase a wonderfully unique and deceptively spacious 3 storey period townhouse with two pretty courtyard gardens, off-street parking and garage, just a short walk from the centre of the historic Cinque port town of Rye and within easy reach of the beautiful East Sussex coast.

This unlisted attached late Victorian 2/3 bedroom character home, now in need of some modernisation and improvement, offers charming, flexible accommodation and would suit any number of different purchasers, including those looking for a second home or someone looking for a rental opportunity. 

Set over three floors, the principal accommodation comprises: a cosy sitting room; generous dining room; galley style kitchen with breakfast area at one end which gives access to a very private courtyard space; two doubles bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom; separate shower room, and attic room, which could be a third single bedroom or an office, study, studio or hobby space.

Step out of the front door, and you are a few steps away from the lovely Rye Salts and just a short walk from the centre of the town and its many amenities. Step out of the back door and you enter a very private haven where you can leave the worries of the world behind. This property also benefits from a parking space and garage to the front. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all that this quirky property has to offer.

Entrance Hall 13' 2" x 5' 5" (4.01m x 1.65m)
From the moment you take the shared steps up to the front door, you know there's going to be some surprises in store, and this house certainly does not disappoint. The front door leads into a welcoming hallway which is open to the sitting and dining rooms, giving this main reception floor an open plan, very sociable feel. Stairs to first floor with cupboard under. Space for cloaks storage.

Sitting Room 13' 8" x 10' 3" (4.17m x 3.12m)
This good size, inviting room is a cosy place to sit and relax. A large double glazed window to the front gives views over The Salts.

Dining Room 13' 2" x 12' 1" (4.01m x 3.68m)
This spacious room, with its exposed brick walls, feature fireplace and stained floorboards, is bursting with character. Currently set up as a dining room, this space could also take soft seating or be used as the main sitting room if preferred.

Kitchen 11' 9" x 6' 2" (3.58m x 1.88m)
The galley style kitchen, which is handily positioned between the dining and breakfast rooms, has a sunny feel about it. A window gives lovely views over the courtyard garden beyond. There are a range of wood units, both wall and base with laminate worktops. Sink unit. Free standing oven with gas hob. Slimline dishwasher. Boiler. One end of the kitchen is open to the breakfast room.

Breakfast Room 11' 4" x 6' 8" (3.45m x 2.03m)
This useful room at the end of the kitchen has space for a small table and chairs. Worktop with storage under. Space for upright fridge/freezer and washing machine. Two external doors give access to the inner courtyard garden and the alleyway which leads to the upper garden.

First Floor Landing
Stairs from the ground floor lead to a landing which gives access to the two main bedrooms, shower room and stairs to the attic room.

Bedroom 1 13' 10" x 10' 2" (4.22m x 3.10m)
A spacious double bedroom with double glazed window to the front giving views out across The Salts and beyond.

Bedroom 2 12' 5" x 8' 6" (3.78m x 2.59m)
A pretty double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Views towards Citadel at the back. A loft hatch gives access to what we understand is a large loft space.

En-suite 7' 7" x 6' 4" (2.31m x 1.93m)
A generous, traditional style en-suite bathroom comprising panelled bath, wash basin and WC. Room for free standing storage.

Second Floor Room 12' 4" x 8' 0" (3.76m x 2.44m)
Stairs from the first floor lead to this handy room nicknamed "The Crow's Nest", which could be used as a single bedroom or as a study, office, studio, hobby room or storage space. Eaves storage. NB: Some restricted head height to this room.

Externally the property enjoys the rare benefit in Rye of a single off-street parking space in front of the garage which is situated beneath the house. Shared steps lead up to the front doors for this property and number 56. These properties also share an alleyway which leads to the back of the houses, where a further set of steps belonging to this property lead to a private second level terraced garden area. A further enclosed, very pretty courtyard garden can be found tucked away at the side of the kitchen on the lower level and is the perfect place to retreat from the world outside.
