Occupying an enviable corner plot, a detached three bedroom family with potential to extend and create a fourth bedroom and larger entertaining space. Westerly aspect garden, summerhouse and detached garage . A former show home, this is an excellent opportunity for a buyer to update and improve. No onward chain.
DESCRIPTION There is plenty for a buyer to get excited about with this home in Blunden Drive, Cuckfield. Firstly, we really like the corner position which carries plenty of advantages. The wide plot provides a tapered garden to the rear which benefits from plenty of daylight sun, with the aspect favouring a westerly direction. Originally built as the show home, both the sitting room and the kitchen enjoy a double aspect, with windows to the front and french doors to the rear. The first floor currently provides three bedrooms and a bathroom, which has a large walk in shower, as well as a bath, wc and hand basin. The current master bedroom benefits from a double aspect to the front and rear, with bedroom three is to the front and bedroom two to the rear. There is also lapsed planning to create a two storey extension to the rear which would transform the house. It would create a much bigger kitchen diner on the ground floor and add a bedroom on the first floor with an en-suite. Whilst internally the house could benefit from some updating, a buyer could simply move in and carry out the work over a period of time.
The outside space of this home is also a real feature. At the end of the garden is a summerhouse, which has previously been used to run a business from. With power and lighting, this is a great space and could perhaps also benefit those with older children, wanting a games room. The garage has been converted, there is now a large office/storage capacity at the rear, with further storage to the front. Should a buyer need to use the garage for a car, it could easily be reverted back to. In front of the garage is parking for two cars.
LOCATION The sought after village of Cuckfield is located in a superb central position, just to the East of the A2/M23 linking Brighton and the M25. The village boasts an array of independent shops coupled with a thriving community. Our favourite places to eat are at The Talbot and The Rose And Crown – the tasting menu at The Rose And Crown is superb, whilst for a more special occasions, you could try the Michelin starred Ockenden Manor & Spa which is in the heart of the village. No 1 Broad Street which opened in March 2019, is proving to be big hit with many locals.
For schools, there is Holy Trinity Primary School and Warden Park Secondary School, both rated as good in their most recent Ofsted report. Those that need to commute can walk via Blunts Wood to Haywards Heath station where trains to London Victoria and London Bridge are under an hour. Alternatively, Balcombe station, which is the next stop north on the London to Brighton line is just under 4 miles. A short drive from The Brambles on along Tylers Green and Butlers Green Road takes you to Haywards Heath with its own range of shopping facilities including the recently opened Waitrose located at the train station. Gatwick Airport is within 15 miles and the M25 a little further along the M23.
