This attractive period attached cottage is believed to have origins dating back to the 17th Century with later additions. Externally the property presents partly white washed plaster in-filled timber elevations to northern side of the house, and colour washed brick, with some red brick and grey headers, to the front elevation, all under a mainly pitched tile roof. Carnoy has been restored and improved by the present owners and has beautifully presented accommodation, which is well arranged, over three floors. Features of note include a spacious double aspect drawing room which has a bressumer beam spanning a large inglenook fireplace inset with a wood burning stove. The kitchen has a triple aspect and is well appointed with modern appliances. From the kitchen/breakfast room there are glazed double doors giving access to the spacious drawing room. Other features of note include a wealth of ceiling timbers, some casement windows and a dining room that leads out onto a two tier easterly facing patio.
Carnoy is situated in the picturesque downland village of Wilmington, which lies within the newly designated South Downs National Park, in an area of outstanding natural beauty and within a Conservation area. Wilmington is famous for its Long Man, a large chalk cut figure. The village has a public house and a church, and lies about 9 miles to the east of the historic county town of Lewes, with its mainline train service to London (Victoria about 64 minutes). Berwick station is some 2 miles distant and has a mainline train service to London Victoria/London Bridge in about 81 minutes). The coastal business and entertainment centre of Eastbourne is about 7 miles to the East and local village shops and a primary school can be found in the nearby village of Alfriston.
Carnoy is approached from the lane via a brick paved driveway and parking area adjacent to the single garage. A stepped brick path, edged with attractive planting within a retaining wall, leads to the front door. The garden lies principally to the south east side of the house and is a particular feature of the property. The garden is well stocked with some mature shrubs and trees, including mature apple trees. From the southerly end of the garden there is a small summer house and a bricked seating area to enjoy stunning views of the South Downs. Within this enchanting garden there are various designated sitting areas, which are ideal for outdoor entertaining. About 0.2 acres.
