A brand new three bedroom semi-detached house, nestling in a small rural village within a short walk of the local pub and with the opportunity to purchase an additional area of land to the rear, ideal to use as a vegetable plot or create a natural garden.


Nursery Cottages are situated on a tree lined lane on the southern edge of the High Weald AONB in the sought after village of Vines Cross which has a popular public house at its centre and a garage.  The market town of Heathfield is some 3 miles north and offers a good range of supermarkets, independent shops and amenities to serve day to day needs.  Tunbridge Wells is about 16 miles distant to the north having an excellent shopping centre and wide ranging leisure facilities.  The coast at Eastbourne is about a half hour drive to the south.

Vines Cross is well located for access to surrounding towns and villages and the local road network with the A22 and A21 roads close by.  Main line rail services are available from Uckfield and Buxted stations with services to London Bridge, both about a 20 minute drive.

There is an excellent choice of well-regarded state and private schools in the area with primary schools All Saints and St Richards and Park Side at Heathfield and secondary education at Heathfield Community College. There is also a good nursery nearby in Old Heathfield.

The immediate area is well served for leisure with tennis, cricket, rugby and football clubs in surrounding villages and a golf course at Horam with Heathfield providing a well equipped community leisure centre.  The properties are surrounded by wonderful countryside with an extensive network of public footpaths and bridleways on the doorstep including the picturesque 14 mile Cuckoo Trail.
