Friars Oak House is a handsome and remarkably charming Grade II listed family home in a convenient location. The property offers spacious accommodation with wonderfully proportioned rooms throughout and a character you would expect from a home such as this and would benefit from some updating.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and approached via a large reception hall, with bay to the front. The current owners have considered separating the hall to provide an additional reception room.
The drawing room is bay fronted with a feature fireplace and is of a very good size with high ceilings adding to the spacious nature of the room. The dining room beyond is inviting and a wonderful room for formal entertaining. Double doors from both of these rooms lead into a vaulted conservatory which offers a delightful outlook of the gardens.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a charming farm house style feel to it with timber units, large Aga and cooker alongside. A raised breakfast area provides ample space for family and friends to dine more informally and makes this room the heart of the house. Beside the kitchen is a utility room with rear access and an ideal space for muddy boots. The kitchen also leads into a lobby, with a bedroom and shower room alongside, stairs rise to an upper level. The current owners have thought about separating this area from the main house to provide an annex with access to the courtyard.
On the first floor there are five further double bedrooms, one of which has its own bath and shower room. The family bathroom has a freestanding claw foot bath and a separate shower cubicle, this is in addition to a separate cloakroom.
Friars Oak House is situated on the outskirts of the village of Hassocks and is close to the golf course and within walking distance of the local mainline train station with its fast links to London and Brighton. Surrounded by beautiful and picturesque Sussex countryside the local village offers a range of amenities including various shops, cafes, banks, chemist, sub post office and modern health centre. Convenient road links provide access to the A23/M23 and Gatwick Airport.
The front of the property has a gated private driveway providing ample parking. The gardens and grounds extend to approximately 0.21 hectares (0.519 of an acre) and are predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed by mature trees and shrubs. The gardens offer a good degree of privacy and within the grounds are two useful outbuildings currently used for general storage and garden machinery. The gated courtyard to the rear of the house provides further parking.
