This handsome and well-proportioned family home enjoys a convenient setting on a quiet and private cul-de-sac close to Haywards Heath’s many amenities but equally opportune for the surrounding open countryside. With spacious interiors and attractive period detailing throughout, the detached Turner-style property is offered in very good condition with modern décor that complements the wood wall panelling, beams and brick fireplaces from the 1930s. Of particular note is the 31ft kitchen/dining room, which has ample space for eating together as a family with views over the gardens. In addition there are four reception rooms, a utility room, wc and excellent storage with plenty of fitted cupboards.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms including a sizeable master bedroom with en suite bathroom, plus a family bathroom.
Fox Hill Close is an attractive private cul-de-sac of detached family homes, located just off Fox Hill on the southern edge of Haywards Heath. Notably there is open countryside nearby interspersed with footpaths and bridleways leading to local villages. The area is very well connected with a regular bus service running along Fox Hill, linking with Brighton, and a train station in Haywards Heath with fast and direct services London and Gatwick Airport. The town also has an excellent selection of shops, restaurants and bars, plus a Waitrose supermarket and a large leisure centre. The town is well served by schooling with some highly regarded establishments in the local area including Warden Park Secondary Academy in neighbouring Cuckfield and a number of excellent independent schools. The surrounding countryside is well known for its outstanding natural beauty and there are many country walks around Ashdown Forest and the South Downs, as well as the National Trust-owned Sheffield Park and Wakehurst estates. Gatwick Airport is accessible via the A272/Haywards Heath relief road and the A23/M23 which also connects to the national motorway network.
With open countryside nearby the property feels wonderfully rural, which is echoed in its attractive natural gardens. To the front there is a pretty garden with a parcel of lawn, a number of mature flowerbeds and a spacious in-and-out gravel carriage driveway with parking for a number of vehicles. The rear garden is private and of an excellent size, laid mostly to lawn and enclosed by high hedges, with a paved patio adjacent to the house providing space for alfresco dining and a barbeque, plus an attractive walkway underneath a wooden-framed pergola. In addition, there is a summerhouse at the end of the garden. To the front is an exceptional detached triple garage building. Three sets of timber double doors open into this immaculate area with ample space for three cars. Space above the garage is accessed from an external staircase. This area has velux style windows providing natural light and also benefits from a fitted shower room. Total plot size of 0.402 acres.
