A rare and exciting opportunity to acquire one of Cuckfield’s more iconic family homes, set within a small private close, behind electric gates in an acre of formal garden together with a 6 acre paddock.
This luxury family house measures just under 6,000 sqft in total and enjoys a heated swimming pool with large pool house, built-in sunken spa and double garage with loft room.

Approached through the main electric gates from the road, there are private double gates leading access to the side of the property for agricultural purposes and on the other side of the house a private driveway with ample parking for over 6 cars which leads to the front of the double garage. Here twin electric up and over doors provide ample storage for two cars (fully lined and insulated walls and heating units) with a deep section for workbenches etc. The property is heated by a mains gas condenser boiler with full underfloor heating to all parts of the ground floors and bathrooms. The entire ground floor is tiled, two of the main reception rooms have wonderful bespoke open stone fireplaces, fully operational. The master bedroom at the rear has a private balcony with seating overlooking the grounds and amazing views of the extensive countryside. There is an additional balcony with seating on the first floor situated at the front of the property. The kitchen is fitted with a full size dual control AGA with additional gas module and there is a walk-in larder, large kitchen island featuring wine fridge and seating for 6 – 8 people. Other energy saving features include part solar power and a full air recovery system.
