A three bedroom, detached house with just under 1,500sq ft of living and entertaining space set within grounds of about three quarters of an acre with delightful gardens and a detached, open-bay cart lodge style garage with store.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and was extended a number of years ago by the current owners. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor with access to a sizeable loft; on the ground floor there is a practical arrangement of living space with a dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and conservatory/sun room. A front porch gives access to a utility room and a separate WC.
It would benefit from some updating and there is certainly potential to extend, subject to the usual consents.
The detached double cart lodge style garage provides parking for two cars and very good storage space. There is a long gravel driveway leading from the entrance to the front of the house where there is ample parking for a good number of vehicles.
The gardens are a lovely feature; a large, level lawn is framed by distinctive borders and flower beds displaying an excellent variety of flowering plants and shrubs with a terrace at the rear of the cottage providing a great space for outdoor dining and entertaining. From the end of the garden, there is a wonderful open outlook over adjoining farmland and woodland with mature hedging and trees enclosing the sides.
There are two greenhouse, a sizable timber frame summerhouse and towards the entrance of the property a further open garage/storage shed as well as the footprint of some former small farm buildings which could provide the potential for a separate office or workshop. Additionally, there is a vegetable garden and fruit trees.
The property is set off a country lane in an elevated position in a desirable rural location, almost equidistant from the villages of Blackboys and Framfield with their village shops and public houses. Uckfield, about 3 miles, offers a very good range of amenities including several supermarkets, high street shopping, cinema and leisure centre. The spa town of Tunbridge Wells is about 16 miles to the north providing comprehensive shopping, social and cultural amenities whilst the county town of Lewes is about 11 miles in the opposite direction. The coastal towns of Eastbourne and Brighton are 10 miles and 17 miles away respectively.
Mainline rail services are available at Uckfield and Buxted (2.2 miles) with regular services to London Bridge. The property is conveniently located for access to the local and national road network - the nearby A26 and A22 connect to the M25 northwards and A27 southwards linking to the wider motorway network and good connections to London Gatwick/Heathrow airports and the Channel Tunnel.
There are many highly regarded schools in the area, both state and private, including Framfield and Blackboys Primary Schools, Uckfield Community College, Skippers Hill Manor Prep School, Mayfield School, Cumnor House at Danehill and Bede's at Upper Dicker.
