On entering from the central front door, into the sitting room you immediately notice the charm the cottage affords, with an exposed beam ceiling. Off the sitting room is a dining room with a period fireplace. To the rear is a fitted kitchen, and access to the cellar below with brick flooring and several intriguing recesses. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a wet room, plus separate WC.
Externally, a feature of the cottage is the sizeable rear garden, that has a brick paved courtyard area ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining that leads to a lawned area with mature trees and flower beds. To the rear there is a pedestrian gate that leads onto a pathway back to Sheep Street.
The cottage displays a “Petersfield Heritage” blue plaque “18-20 Sheep Street. These two properties, originally one Wealden house, date from the 15th century. The upper floor of no.18 is faced with mathematical tiles, designed to resemble bricks, thus avoiding the tax levied on them.”
