COUNTRY LANE LOCATION
Approached from Newick Lane through a five-bar wooden gate, this detached property is well set back and enjoys a private and tranquil setting. On entering this house, you can immediately appreciate the spaciousness and adaptability of this home and the potential it offers.
A large hallway gives access firstly to the lounge which has been extended to create a lovely sunny and sunny space with an abundance of light. There is an open fireplace for cosy winter nights and for warm summer days, glazed sliding doors open onto a paved terrace with superb views across the AONB to Ashdown Forest
Next to the lounge is an attractive room currently an office, but which could equally be used as a dining room or 3rd double bedroom. A fully glazed door opens onto the terrace.
The hallway then leads into a corridor and the other downstairs rooms. The kitchen has fitted storage units and spaces for a cooker, washing machine, dishwasher, and fridge. There is a walk-in crockery cupboard and a small larder. The back door leads onto the terrace or down steps to a lower patio.
Opposite the kitchen is the good sized dining room overlooking the drive and front garden. This again could be a 3rd double bedroom or otherwise be adapted to your family’s needs. Beyond are the bathroom, a further WC, a utility room with garden access, and a single 4th bedroom or study. A door leads into the very spacious double garage and a large fitted-out workshop.
Stairs from the hallway lead to the first floor and two double bedrooms, the principal bedroom benefits from an en-suite WC and hand basin. Ample loft space, mostly boarded, is easily accessed.
OUTSIDE:- Through the five-bar entrance gate, a tarmac driveway leads to the front door and double garage, and provides ample off-road parking for several vehicles. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn, and the surrounding mature trees and shrubs keep the house private and not overlooked.
From the front, the garden wraps round the house on both sides towards the back offering further views across the beautiful countryside. Attached to the house are a store for garden furniture and two smaller cupboards, and a raised herb bed is within easy reach of the kitchen. There are two sheds and a greenhouse next to the screened kitchen garden area, and another shed further down the garden. Walking on, a gentle slope leads through wide gates into the paddocks where mature hedges and trees mark the boundaries, and continues to the strip of woodland which is full of wildlife.
Newick Lane is a long, winding country lane that joins Heathfield to Mayfield with several detached properties leading off from it. A number of footpaths, bridleways and cycle paths offer opportunities for leisure pursuits, and there are many country pubs and good restaurants in the nearby villages and a popular cinema in Uckfield. The location of the property is a 5 minute drive to the market town of Heathfield with its wide range of shops, supermarkets, cafes, hairdressers, doctors, dentists and vets – and free parking! There really everything you need without having to travel further afield.
For educational requirements, there is a wide range of schools both in the private and state sectors including Maynards Green Community Primary School, Skippers Hill Manor at Five Ashes, Mayfield School, Bedes Senior School at Upper Dicker and Heathfield Community College. For travel there is a main bus route that runs through Heathfield for links to the larger towns of Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne, and the mainline train stations at Buxted, Stonegate and Wadhurst have direct links into central London.
