Within easy reach of Ardingly village is this delightful semi-detached cottage believed to have been built in the 1800s, and more recently modernised and extended to create a charming family home. The cottage is built in the traditional Sussex style with part tile-hung elevations and benefits from a number of period features, including original fireplaces and exposed beams. Despite its cottage feel, the property is deceptively spacious and features high ceilings in addition to a good size extension to the rear housing the modern kitchen. The property was refurbished three years ago and is presented in a good condition throughout, and also includes a recently installed boiler and double-glazed windows.
The property is arranged over three floors, including a cellar on the lower ground floor and a split-level ground floor. Entrance is via an open porch onto a hallway, with access to a double length reception room with bay window and the separate kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is appointed with attractive fitted cupboards and has space for a range burner, with a sizeable alcove currently used as a dining area. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, including a master bedroom with en suite shower room and views over the garden, and three further bedrooms (two with original fireplaces). In addition there is a family bathroom with integrated bath.
Ardingly is a picturesque and sought after village to the north of Haywards Heath. The village provides a Post Office, village store, bakery, two pubs and a well-regarded primary school within walking distance of the property. The reservoir offers good walking, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and fishing. More comprehensive facilities including a mainline station with services to Victoria and London Bridge can be found approximately 4 miles distant in Haywards Heath. The village is ideally placed for road links to the M23 (approximately 9 miles distant) and the motorway network.
The property is accessed via an open driveway from Cob Lane, leading to a gravelled parking area to the side where there is space for a number of vehicles. In addition, the formal lawned garden to the front features a pedestrian gate and is enclosed by a mix of brick walls and wooden panel fencing. There is a separate parking area to the rear, accessed via double wooden gates, where there is also an extensive range of outbuildings with power. These outbuildings are currently arranged as three separate workshops, offering space and distance from the main house to be of great use for a number of purposes. Beyond these buildings is a delightful area of woodland laid with wooden chippings for a children’s play area. The rear garden is laid to lawn and enjoys a secluded feel with a variety of tall trees affording a pleasant green outlook. Adjoining the rear of the house is a large gravelled area with a raised section for seating, which is repeated midway down the garden in a separated gravelled area for garden furniture.
