OVERLOOKING STAPLEFIELD VILLAGE GREEN. An individually designed and built 4 bedroom detached house in hidden away location.
Constructed in 2003 on the instructions of the current vendors, the house occupies a peaceful setting just off Tanyard Lane.
The external design is traditional Sussex style yet the interior is a pleasing mix of the conventional and contemporary.
The garden surrounds the house on all sides, with views from house and garden to the east across a meadow to St Mark’s school and church, and to the south and west over Staplefield Common and the village green and cricket pitch. Though tucked away it is a two minute walk to the school, churches, village hall and the two pubs noted for their welcome and excellent food.
Inside, there is a large dining room, a sitting room with open fire, leading to a conservatory, and a kitchen/breakfast room. From the kitchen there is a utility room, a larder and a WC. Downstairs there is also a double bedroom with en suite ideal for guests or elderly relatives. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, one with en suite, and a family bathroom. The large gallery/landing provides ample space for an office and quiet study area. All the main rooms are light and bright with double aspect.
Outside there is a brick built double carport with three lockable store rooms and a log store.
The access is off Tanyard Lane across a shared entrance leading to the paved driveway terminating in front of the house and carport.
The heating is oil fired, with electric underfloor heating in the bathrooms and conservatory.
Staplefield was once described by a famous Sunday newspaper as part of the Golden Triangle of villages, made up of the three communities of Warninglid, Slaugham and Staplefield. Just 2 miles south of Nymans Gardens at Handcross, the village has two pub restaurants within walking distance as well as an excellent church aided primary school and a village hall, also a short stroll away.
Handcross to the north east offers a general store, newsagent, butchers and ironmongers as well a tea rooms and two pubs.
Access to the (A23/M23) London to Brighton motorway is just 5 minutes by car with the local mainline railway station at Balcombe under 10 minutes drive.
In the summer months village cricket is played on the square opposite the house with other events held throughout the year.
