Situated in an elevated position taking in lovely panoramic views over the Ashdown Forest is this individual detached home, now on the market with Fine & Country.

The property, understood to have been built in 1987 and offering very well presented split-level accommodation, is tucked away down an unadopted lane of just seven properties, yet only about 185 yards from the facilities of Nutley village.

Inside are four good-sized bedrooms, one having a balcony and an en suite bathroom. There are three reception rooms, the largest being a double aspect lounge with doors to a terrace capturing the splendid outlook.

Like the lounge, the dining room and kitchen are rear facing. A raised see-through double-sided fireplace with wood burning stove enhances both main reception areas, which are on different levels and linked by a few steps. The study looks to the front and is set alongside a cloakroom. Both are off an inner hall, which also has access to the lounge.

The kitchen is generously proportioned and fitted with an extensive range of work surfaces, cupboards and drawers. There is a double oven, a ceramic hob and an integrated fridge and freezer, plus space for other appliances and a table with chairs. The adjoining utility room has a door to the outside.

Stairs rise from the entrance hall to the first floor landing and the four bedrooms. Three have fitted wardrobes and take in the views. The en suite shower room has been refitted and there is a family bathroom. The latter has doors to the landing and the third bedroom. The property is approached by double gates leading to a driveway and the attractive front garden. This includes areas of lawn, paving, well stocked beds, shrubs, trees and an old well. There is parking and a useful detached workshop with an adjoining boiler room.

At the back of the double glazed, oil centrally heated and cavity wall insulated house is the large terrace. This is split-level and opens to a wide lawn surrounded by shrubs. Beyond this the garden slopes down to a wooded area with a gate to the forest. To the side of the house is a dog run and a vegetable area.

Available at a guide price of £750,000, this very appealing home can be viewed by appointment through Fine & Country on 01825 767575.
