A stunning Grade II listed detached home with a detailed history going back to the 17th century and having once been the home of the prolific architect, HG Turner and would have been one of the first homes to have been constructed in this area.
The charm and character of this property is clear to see the moment you step through the main entrance and into the reception hall with a large open fireplace with exposed beam over. The triple aspect sitting room is a delightful room with an exposed brick open fireplace and glazed doors leading out to the gardens. The separate dining room is warm and cosy room and yet ample in size with the added feeling of space created by a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. Beyond this is a further room, which is currently being used as a home office, but could serve other purposes equally well, including perhaps an occasional or guest bedroom, as a staircase leads from the dining room to a first floor shower room. To the rear of the property is a kitchen/breakfast room having a range of fitted units and a seating area with windows looking out to the gardens and doors leading outside.
On the first floor the bedrooms all have wonderful vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. The two principle bedrooms also have the attractive exposed brickwork from the fireplaces below, with one also having a fireplace. One of the bedrooms benefits from having an en-suite shower room with the other rooms being served by the family bathroom.
The house sits to the edge of the picturesque village of Cuckfield, described by The Telegraph as 'A commuter's delight' with a 'spellbinding high street' being home to a range of local shops, pubs, a church and schools. More comprehensive shopping facilities may be found in Haywards Heath with its wide range of shops and restaurants, modern leisure centre and a mainline railway station offering excellent services to London (Victoria and Thames link to London Bridge), Brighton and Gatwick. The A23 offers a direct route to the motorway network, the airports at Gatwick and Heathrow and the coast.
The property is well screened to the front by mature hedging and is approached via a gravelled private driveway, which leads to a detached garage. The property also has well stocked flower and shrub beds to the front.
The rear garden is absolutely stunning and has been beautiful cared for by the current owner. An ample terrace is adjacent to the house, ideal for alfresco entertaining or simply relaxing looking out to the wonderful gardens beyond. Central steps leading to the main garden area and have well stocked shrub beds to either side. From the here the garden opens up to a sizable lawned area with mature hedging to either side. The garden has well stocked flower and shrub beds and towards the end of the garden mature trees screen an area ideal for composting.
