Enjoying an idyllic semi-rural location close to a charming village, this expansive detached property sits within attractive grounds of 0.927 acres with a selection of former agricultural barn & outbuildings included in the sale which have planning permission to be converted to a seperate four bedroom residential dwelling. The property has been extensively modernised throughout and has been extended, with the accommodation enjoying a bright, contemporary feel and requiring little further improvement. A particular highlight is the amount of custom-made fitted storage, which spans both reception rooms, the hall, office and the kitchen, and is most desirable for the busy family. The property is entered via a spacious internal entrance hall and features a versatile layout. The ground floor comprises a family room, office and 19ft sitting room with log burner, which is joined to the adjacent drawing room by double doors. Both spaces lead out to the rear garden, affording the opportunity to open up the space in the warmer months. The kitchen is a particular highlight, with its wood floors, vaulted detailing and skylights which flood the room with natural light. The kitchen has been fitted with bespoke wooden units and granite surfaces, and also features a central island and range cooker.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, including two good-size doubles and a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom, featuring a freestanding bathtub and separate shower. Many of the bedrooms have lovely views over the surrounding grounds and farmland to the rear. A fifth bedroom can be found on the ground floor, which would make an ideal guest suite or could be used as a playroom/additional reception room if required.
Situated mid-way between Haywards Heath and Uckfield, North Chailey is a charming village ideally located on the A272 providing fast access to surrounding villages. Within the village there is a cricket club, tea shop, service station and farm shop, with pubs and schools available in neighbouring Newick. Further amenities can be found in Haywards Heath (6 miles) where there is a main line station offering fast and regular trains to Gatwick Airport, London Bridge and Victoria (approx. 45 minutes). The local area is beautiful open countryside with many footpaths leading to woodland and areas of outstanding natural beauty.
The property is approached via a gravel driveway with ample parking for several vehicles in front
of the house and the attached single garage, which can be accessed via a manual up-and-over door. To the front there are low hedges and a large parcel of lawn bordered by post-and-rail fencing, with tall trees and established shrubs shielding the property from the road. The lawn extends around the south side of the house in front of a selection of outbuildings, which include a 60ft open-sided Atcos, a 31ft timber framed barn, with attached brick built milking parlour, and store. Their is also a separate 18ft workshop.
Planning permission has been granted to convert the barn & outbuildings into a separate 4 bedroom dwelling. Drawings and plans can be accessed via Lewes Planning Dept (reference LW/18/0324)
The rear garden is laid to lawn which extends to a farm fence overlooking paddocks and copses beyond, with several mature trees providing shade. The views are particularly lovely when enjoyed from the raised decking area adjoining the rear of the house, which is arranged over two levels and provides a spacious area for alfresco dining in the warmer months. The garden also features a pond and borders.
