With an excellent location close to the centre of Burgess Hill is this character family home, situated in a sought-after residential area close to a variety of amenities plus two parks. The detached property retains much of its period charm while being extensively improved throughout and presented to a very high finish, including an attractive character staircase, original cast iron fireplaces in the dining room and bedrooms, original doors and deep skirting boards, as well as wooden floors throughout much of the ground floor. The deceptively spacious layout is ideally arranged for families, with versatile rooms to both the ground and first floor. There are three generously sized reception rooms in addition to a kitchen/breakfast room which has a larder, space for a breakfast table for day-to-day dining and freestanding appliances including a range cooker. The ground floor also has a cloakroom.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms arranged around a bright and airy central landing. Three of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and original fireplaces. There is a family bathroom with both bath and shower and an additional separate wc.
The property is situated within easy reach of the centre of Burgess Hill, within a short distance of both Wivelsfield and Burgess Hill mainline stations. Church Road and Church Walk offer a wider choice of amenities and leisure facilities, including the Martlets Shopping Centre and a Waitrose supermarket. For schools, Burgess Hill and nearby Haywards Heath offers a good number of primary and secondary schools. Local walks are possible at Ditchling Common Country Park, across the High Weald to the north and the South Downs National Park to the south, with Brighton and the seafront approx. 12 miles away.

This handsome double-fronted property is set behind a manicured hedge and brick wall, with a secluded front garden leading to the front door. The parking area is situated to one side of the property, where there is a detached garage and off street parking set behind iron gates. In addition, there is a side gate providing access to the rear garden. Offering exceptional space for a town property, the garden is a very generous size and laid to mostly level lawn interspersed with a variety of mature flowerbeds, enclosed by well-established hedging providing a feeling of seclusion. In addition to a number of flowering borders there are fruiting apple trees and a vegetable garden. The vegetable garden currently has two greenhouses, a large chicken run, wood store and composting area. For outdoor dining there is a 4m x 8m stone-paved terrace to the rear of the house, accessed via the dining room.
