A well-presented family home in a rural setting surrounded by attractive mature gardens situated on a desirable residential road within easy access to amenities, transport links and countryside. Just moments away is an access gate to the footpaths of the Batchelors Farm Nature Reserve and within ten minutes you can be on The South Downs for walking, cycling and horse riding.
The property is presented in a traditional style with characterful interiors and has been subject to a number of refurbishments including a stylish and contemporary kitchen by Hamilton Stone Design. Internally the property benefits from good natural light, with double glazed lead-light windows framing beautiful views over the gardens and the surrounding countryside. A further benefit is the excellent storage, with two large eaves cupboards on the first floor and outbuildings.
On the ground floor, the accommodation leads off an entrance hall to a very grand, beamed sitting/dining room with wood burning stove in inglenook, extending to 23ft. In addition there is a separate family room with bay window, a kitchen decorated in soothing tones of grey, a cloakroom and bedroom – the latter could be used as a playroom or study, if desired.
The first floor accommodation is arranged around a galleried landing, including a master bedroom suite with dressing room leading into a shower room, two further large double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The property is located on a desirable residential road on the southern edge of Burgess Hill, within easy access of the mainline station and town centre by foot or car. Burgess Hill offers a wide range of amenities and leisure facilities including The Triangle Leisure Centre, the Martlets Shopping Centre with a Waitrose supermarket. For schools, Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath offer a good number of primary and secondary schools while the area has good private schools, including Burgess Hill School for Girls and Hurstpierpoint College, Ardingly College, Great Walstead and Brighton College, all within driving distance. By car, Brighton seafront, Gatwick and Heathrow airports and London are accessible via the A23/M23 and M25. There are two mainline stations at Burgess Hill and Wivelsfield, both with excellent DIRECT services to London (Victoria/London Bridge 55 mins), Kings Cross/St Pancras which offers Euro Star services to Paris and Brussels Gatwick Airport (20 mins) and Brighton (20 mins).
The property is set well back from the road and approached via a sweeping gravel driveway leading to a large parking area with space for several vehicles. Situated to the left is an integral garage, which offers potential for conversion (subject to necessary consents). The gardens to the front and rear are well established and feature a variety of mature trees, shrubs and hedging, creating a wonderfully secluded space to relax. To the rear there is a charming patio and low walled garden leading to an expansive lawn that extends an impressive distance behind the house.
The gardens extend to a completely secluded area where an outbuilding and swimming pool are currently located. Permission has been granted by Mid Sussex District Council under reference 12/02036/FUL(AP/13/0059) to be converted to a 2 bedroom separate dwelling.
