Perfectly positioned for those that need the station and tucked away on a quiet residential road, a superbly presented and extended four bedroom family home with feature loft conversion. Rear garden and off road parking with plenty of charm and character throughout.
DESCRIPTION We have fallen in love with this superb extended family home, oozing with charm and in excellent order, just a stone’s throw from Haywards Heath Station. There is plenty for a buyer to get excited about, be it the number of rooms with a double aspect, high ceilings or the character. One of the key aspects we like is the entertaining space and the flexibility of the three floors. To the front, the favoured south aspect sitting room benefits from plenty of natural daylight and the open fireplace perfectly complements the recess storage. The double aspect dining room benefits from stripped wood floors and large understairs storage cupboard which is perfect for jackets and boots. The dining room then leads into the kitchen breakfast room which has ample work surface space, a breakfast bar and a double aspect, with doors that lead you out to the garden. This room is a good size – 18ft in length, but also provides potential to extend, a buyer may look to square off the kitchen and create more of a kitchen/dining room if required.
The extension into the loft ensures that the first floor space works really well. The former master bedroom is now bedroom two and is located at the front and has built in storage and a fireplace. We like the two set of windows which allows plenty of light to come in. Bedrooms three and four are also on the first floor as is the superbly fitted bathroom, decorated in keeping with a home of this age. Bedroom four is a single and could also work well as a study.
The impressive loft extension was completed in 2017 and provides that luxury finish to the home. We like that the door is positioned on the first floor which helps create that sense of space as the stairs rise up into the room. Windows to the front and rear ensure that there is plenty of light and there is ample space for a large bed and potential for further built in storage if required. A clever design is the walk through wardrobe area just as you enter the spacious en-suite with walk in shower.
The garden works really well too. Accessed by the kitchen, there are French doors that take you to an excellent decked area, perfect for a table and chairs and a BBQ. Steps then lead down to an area of lawn. To the side of the kitchen there is an enclosed courtyard that leads to a brick outbuilding which is currently used as a utility room and benefits from heating & electricity. To the front there is off road parking for one car.
LOCATION Another key selling point of this home is the excellent location. A three minute walk takes you to Haywards Heath station where trains to London Bridge and London Victoria are from 45 minutes, making it perfect for commuters. Also on hand at the station is a Waitrose and around the corner a Sainsbury’s. Also close by is The Dolphin Leisure Centre. For schools, catchment includes Harlands Primary school and also Blackthorns Academy – recently rated as Outstanding. For parents that need before and after school care, Pioneer Club is located at Lindfield Primary where children can be dropped from 7am and then after school until 6:30pm. The secondary school Oathall Community College which is also in walking distance.
Another key feature is that Gordon Road itself has its own fantastic community set up. On the first Sunday of every month for 2 hours, the road is closed off from cars to allow children to play and meet up – a great way to build the community spirit. The countryside is not far from your front door, National Trust facilities are located locally at Wakehurst Place and Nymans Gardens, with Sheffield Park less than 15 minutes by road. Pretty villages surround the town and include Lindfield, Cuckfield, Ardingly and Wivelsfield Green. Brighton can be found 15 miles to the south, whilst a short drive north takes you to Crawley, London Gatwick and the A/M23.
