Beautifully presented and located on a much sought after modern development providing access to Haywards Heath station, a detached family home with four bedrooms, feature kitchen and large south facing garden.
DESCRIPTION This is an excellent family home, located on a quiet residential road in the recently built development of Penlands Green. There are plenty of features that really excite us about this home that we know will appeal to buyers. We love the design aimed at the 1930’s Arts and Craft style home and with the added benefit of the remaining NHBC warranty, buyers will also have the peace of mind associated with a modern home. Internally, we are big fans of the ceiling height which promotes that sense of space. The stand out feature of the ground floor space is the kitchen/family room which is located to the rear and benefits from a southerly aspect. You’ll find plenty of work surface prep area, as well as integrated appliances which include an oven and hob, fridge freezer and a dishwasher. There are a range of soft closing cupboards and drawers and space for a dining table. The kitchen understairs cupboard houses the washing machine and the shelving above is a really useful storage area. French doors lead you out to the patio and is the perfect spot for a table and chairs. Elsewhere on the ground floor is a good size sitting room which is located at the front with a wide bay window in keeping with the 30’s design. The ground floor is completed by a cloakroom and a further understairs storage cupboard.
The layout of the first floor also works really well. The master bedroom and bedroom four are located to the front, whilst bedrooms two and three are to the rear. Just like the sitting room, the master bedroom benefits from a wide bay and there is ample space for a large free standing wardrobe. In the en-suite, the slick finish includes a walk in shower, wc and hand basin. The family bathroom is a similar finish, with a bath and shower, wc and hand basin. Another stand out feature is the size of the garden, which is difficult to find with most modern homes. There is a patio area with a side gate which leads you to the drive where you can accommodate three cars, in addition to the garage. Sitting under a pitch roof, there is plenty of storage space in the garage, as well as power and lighting. Steps from the patio lead you down to a lawn area which is enclosed by fencing to three sides. Rarely have we seen a garden of this size on a modern development and with the benefit of a due south aspect, it is a real sun trap to enjoy.
Other benefits for the development include an active Facebook group and activities such as a Halloween pumpkin hunt and advent calendar trail. There are three separate playgrounds which each feature different play equipment. There is also easy access to extensive walks and footpaths through and around Blunts Wood.
LOCATION One of the key features of this home is the family-friendly development and its strong community feel. For commuters, there is excellent access to Haywards Heath station, which is located just a mile to the south. Train times to London Bridge and Victoria are approximately 50 minutes, whilst Brighton is around 20 minutes to the south. Also close by are Sainsbury’s and Waitrose. A range of bars and restaurants can be found at The Broadway whilst an extensive range of shops are located at The Orchards. For schools, Harlands Primary is within walking distance, there is a cut through from the development, whilst Warden Park Secondary is located in Cuckfield and Oathall Community College is in Haywards Heath. Head north form the development and a short drive takes you to Borde Hill and then onto Balcombe, whilst in a westerly direction, you’ll find Cuckfield just over a mile away. There are great places to get out and explore from Haywards Heath, National Trust facilities are located locally at Wakehurst Place and Nymans Gardens, with Sheffield Park less than 15 minutes by road. Brighton can be found 15 miles to the south, whilst a short drive north takes you to Crawley, London Gatwick and the A/M23.
