Dating from 1840, Holly Hall presents attractive mellow sandstone, brick and partly tile hung upper elevations under a principally pitched slate tile roof.
Internally, the house provides interesting, bright and beautifully presented accommodation over two floors. Features of note include attractive fireplaces in all four reception rooms, tongue and groove panelling, luxuriously appointed bathrooms with underfloor heated marble flooring, panelled doors, a well equipped kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a luxurious range of limed oak units, together with a two oven oil-fired Aga.
From the kitchen a wide opening leads through to a underfloor heated breakfast room, beyond which is a magnificent garden room with a slate floor with wide glazed casement doors leading out onto a sheltered terrace. In addition, on the ground floor, there is a spacious drawing room, a charming dining room, sitting room and study.
The well arranged ground floor accommodation is complemented on the first floor by a spacious principal suite, a guest suite, three further bedrooms and a third bathroom.
The property is delightfully situated in the sought after hamlet of Chelwood Gate and provides convenient access to the towns of Uckfield, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath. Haywards Heath station offers commuter services to London (approx 45 minutes) and all of these town centres provide excellent shopping facilities, recreational amenities and schooling for children of all ages, including the primary school in the nearby village of Danehill. The well known Ashdown Forest with its some 6,500 acres is within close proximity and there are many footpaths across the Forest with the whole area being open for walking and horse riding which is by permit only and confined to the bridle paths. The Forest is part of the High Weald area of outstanding natural beauty and a special protected area.
Outside, the gardens are a particular feature of the property. Immediately to the southeast of the house is a wide paved terrace, with steps leading down to the formal gardens which are laid to sweeping lawn interspersed with various mature specimen shrubs and trees. At the far end of the gardens is an attractive ornamental pond with water lilies. From the formal gardens a wooden gate leads through to a productive kitchen garden with raised beds, a greenhouse and a timber garden store.
The gardens and grounds at Holly Hall provide a magnificent setting for the property.
