In the charming village of Robertsbridge in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in southeast England stands a lovely cottage with historical features, a coral pink kitchen, and a lovely cottage garden.
The house was built around 1700, and it’s a typical example of a Sussex house with its timber-framed terrace wrapped in vertically hung clay peg tiles and painted brickwork.
The interiors of the 1,100 sq ft house feature beautiful original elements such as exposed wooden beams, a colorful kitchen, and three bedrooms.
A jasmine-lined pathway leads to the green-painted front door of the cottage, which opens into the living room. The original oak beams, braces, and a brick fireplace mantel characterize the small room.
The sitting room is painted in “Joa’s White” by Farrow and Ball.
The kitchen and dining room are at the back of the house, connected to the living room. The kitchen has British Standard cabinets that are painted in ‘Heat’ by Little Greene. This is complemented by brass fixtures and reclaimed oak worktops.
The Belfast sink sits under the window from which you have lovely views of the cottage garden.
On the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom sits at the rear of the house. Along one wall, the beautifully weathered timber frame is exposed to reveal its Kentish bracing arrangement, harking to the building’s heritage.
The owners created a third bedroom on the attic floor with slanted ceilings showcasing exposed wooden beams. The walls are painted in ‘Setting Plaster Pink’ by Farrow and Ball.
The cottage garden sits at the back of the house and showcases vibrant blossoms, including winter honeysuckle, jasmine, rose, and abelia.
A cozy dining space is surrounded by plants and flowers.
This lovely historic cottage is now for sale at Inigo.
