Village home with beautiful gardens

Set in glorious mature gardens of around .85 of an acre in a small, select cul-de-sac of individual properties in the pretty village of Waldron near Heathfield is this extremely spacious, well-presented and versatile family home.

For sale at a guide price of £827,500 through Fine & Country, the property is primarily single storey with a two-storey section at one end. Currently arranged with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, three main reception rooms, a garden room and sun room, the house offers 3,890 sq ft of overall floor space, including the garage, workshop and car port. The layout is very flexible and there is scope to create a large annex within it if required.

Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty with a rear aspect to the wooded Possingworth Park, this appealing home enjoys a lovely garden aspect from almost every room.

From an entrance hall with cloakroom is a walkway through to a splendid reception space – a 21ft by 14ft living room with four front facing windows, a feature stone fireplace and an arch to a side hall with fitted bar. An opening leads into a 13ft by 11ft dining room with a rear aspect and double doors into a family room 18ft square.

This also has a similar outlook and access into an adjoining garden room. The 22ft sun room has three sets of doors opening to a rear sun terrace.

The extensive master suite is approached from an inner hall. It brings together a bedroom extending to 20ft by well over 12ft, a dressing area, a walk-in wardrobe and both a bathroom and a separate shower room.

Like the living room, the 16ft 5ins by 11ft kitchen opens directly from the entrance hall. This takes in a view of the garden and is fitted with extensive work surfaces, cupboards, a five ring hob and a double oven. Space is available for a table with chairs.

Stairs run down to a utility room with outside access. Off a lower hall, too, are two bedrooms – one currently used as a study – and a cloakroom.

Two more bedrooms are on the first floor. One has a lobby area, a walk-in wardrobe, access to a loft and an en suite bathroom. The other bedroom also has storage, plus the use of a refitted family bathroom.

The double-width garage is attached to the house and has a door into the sun room. There is a sizeable garden store, a front car port and a more than 19ft by just over 10ft workshop with side and rear doors.

If the eventual purchaser required an annex, the master bedroom suite, family room and garden room would lend itself to conversion into a large self-contained unit.

The whole of the property’s garden is beautifully landscaped and designed to bring colour throughout the year.

Directly behind the house is the extensive paved terrace and there are lawns, established trees and shrubs, a water feature, seating areas and a rockery. A wooden bridge spans a natural stream which runs through the plot.

Located in Forest Place, around a mile from the village store, church and public house, this lovely property is well located for the excellent facilities of Heathfield and Uckfield. Both towns and their surrounding areas offer a variety of shops, restaurants, leisure pursuits and schools for all ages. Mainline railway services to London run from Uckfield and Buxted.
