Surrounded by a wealth of secluded gardens and countryside, behind its striking Art Deco exterior this impressive property offers a highly versatile family home. Cleverly extended with a great eye for detail, Crittal windows, an open fireplace and richly toned oak wood floors combine with a hand built kitchen and a wealth of modern finishing touches to create a magnificent example of contemporary life in a 1930's property. Tastefully presented throughout to a wonderfully high standard, the large entrance hall leads into the easy flowing layout of a ground floor that enjoys a wealth of space to relax and entertain.
Looking out onto the gardens from its arched bay windows, the large sitting room is beautifully light and bright. An open limestone fireplace adds an elegant focal point, while a glazed door in the adjacent dual aspect drawing room makes it easy to step outside and enjoy the gardens. Perhaps the real heart of this home, an extended triple aspect kitchen/breakfast/dining room creates an instant wow factor. Fully fitted with hand built Shaker-style cabinets and granite countertops, the rich blue kitchen has a wealth of storage and workspace, and is well-appointed with integrated appliances. Adding a hugely sociable feel, a central island with a breakfast bar delineates the generous proportions of a room that easily accommodates both dining and family areas. Feature arched bay windows have views of the gardens while glazed doors open onto a large patio making this a great place to entertain. An additional study and bedroom suite add to the sense of space and versatility of the ground floor, and a well-sized utility room and separate cloakroom are perfect finishing touches.
The lovely flow of natural light continues on the first floor where three bedrooms provide ideal family accommodation. With a deep south-facing balcony that offers views that stretch out over the garden and onto the surrounding countryside, the master bedroom has a tranquil air. A stylish en suite shower room features a contemporary suite with his and her basins and there's an enviable amount of storage. Equally well-presented, two additional bedrooms continue the hugely tasteful interior design scheme and share a family bathroom with a central freestanding bath and glass framed walk-in shower.
Fox Hill Close is situated on the southern fringes of Haywards Heath with easy access to the surrounding countryside and the A272 bypass. Extensive shopping and leisure facilities are only a short drive away in Haywards Heath town centre, including the Orchards Shopping Centre, a choice of superstores including a Waitrose, the Olympus Leisure Centre and the choice of bars and restaurants on The Broadway. A mainline train station is 1.9 miles away servicing London Victoria/London Bridge in approx. 47 minutes, Brighton in 20 minutes and Gatwick in 20 minutes. The A23 provides a direct route to the motorway network, Gatwick and Heathrow airports and the south coast, while excellent transport links offer access to the natural beauty spots of the Ouse Valley, the Weald, South Downs and Ashdown Forest.
The large idyllic gardens of this Art Deco family home have something for everyone along with a lovely amount of privacy. Wrought iron gates open onto a private driveway that leads you up to the house and combines with a garage to supply off-road parking for several vehicles. Impeccably presented and maintained, eye-catching topiary and statuesque trees add colour and interest throughout the seasons, while the secluded lawns, a wide paved patio and additional terrace proffer plenty of choice for entertaining and relaxing in the sun with the weekend papers.
