A characterful Grade II listed attached period family home with spacious accommodation extending to 3400 sqft.
Accessed by a long gravelled driveway, the property offers much charm throughout and includes many interesting features such as beams, dressed ceilings, a cellar and a well. An enclosed flagstone porch leads to the main entrance hall which opens into split level reception rooms - the dining room with steps leading down to a bay-fronted 23'11 living room, offering a dual aspect and an open fireplace to one side and a family room with an open fireplace to the other. Fitted with a range of units and a generous pantry, the spacious U-shaped kitchen/breakfast room, looks onto the courtyard area and leads to a covered car port and another large room, currently used as a utility room. There is also a shower room, cloak cupboard, storage cupboard and a vast underfloor storage area on the ground floor. On the first floor, there are five bedrooms, three large, one double and one single, served by two separate bathrooms and a spacious corridor with windows, used as a study/library.
Scaynes Hill is a popular and convenient village location which has good local amenities. Haywards Heath, nearby, has a wide range of shops, restaurants, supermarkets, parks, a modern leisure centre and a mainline railway station offering excellent services to London (Victoria and Thameslink to London Bridge within 45 minutes). The main A23 offers a direct route to the motorway network, the airports at Gatwick and Heathrow and the coast. The local area is renowned for a wide range of good schools at primary and secondary level, such as Cumnor House, Great Walstead, Brighton College, Ardingly, Worth and Hurstpiepoint College.
To the front of the property is a tiered garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn with mature shrubs.
To the rear of the property is a courtyard and a single garage with an inspection pit now filled in, and stairs up to the first floor which is currently used for storage. A large barn door to the rear of the garage opens onto a delightful garden, previously the orchard, where there is still a good range of apple trees, and a wealth of daffodils and bluebells. Bound by mature hedging and fencing, this garden has the most breathtaking views of the adjoining meadows and woods, with the Downs in the distance.
