Quiet and secluded on one of Haywards Heath’s most desirable private roads, a substantial family home built in the 1930’s located on a sought after plot of just under one acre.
DESCRIPTION Located on one of Haywards Heath most sought after private roads to the south of the town, Greenstones is a superb family home that dates back to 1936. There is so much for a buyer to get excited about, whether it be the road position, the quietness of the cul-de-sac or the stunning grounds and views to the south.
Rookery Way is located off Fox Hill and provides a highly desirable location comprising of large detached family homes. Quiet and secluded, Greenstones is positioned on the favoured southerly side and therefore provides wonderful views towards the South Downs National Park. Internally the accommodation is flexible and covers just under 3,000 square feet. As you walk around you Greenstones you pick up on the character of a 1930’s home, we love the herringbone oak floor in the reception hall and oak flooring flows through into the triple aspect sitting room and dining room. There are bell cords in all of the bedrooms and stained glass windows which can be found throughout. Careful thought was given to Greenstones when it was built to ensure that all of the rooms bar the servant’s bedroom faces south and therefore make the most of the elevated position. Indeed, the views in particular from the sitting room, dining room, bedrooms one, two and three towards the South Downs are wonderful and one of the key reasons our clients purchased Greenstones in the first place. The kitchen includes a breakfast area which leads into a large utility room, perfect for providing access into both garages and to the rear terrace. The garages provide ample storage and could be converted for further use if required. Elsewhere on the ground floor is the fifth bedroom which could also be used as a study or a playroom and a cloakroom which is next to the oak staircase.
A turning staircase from the reception hall leads to the spacious first floor landing where the large stained glass window is a great feature and allows plenty of light to flood in. The double aspect master suite has built in wardrobes and the en-suite power shower room benefits from underfloor heating. Bedrooms two and three faces south with bedroom four benefiting from a built in storage cupboard. Bedroom four, formally the servants bedroom, also has built in storage. The first floor accommodation is completed by the family bathroom.
Buyers we are sure will fall in love with the grounds of Greenstones. Approaching close to an acre in total, the southerly facing grounds include a tennis court, a children’s play area with swings, slide and look out, brick paved terrace and a variety of mature features and high level hedging. The timber art studio benefits from lighting and power and provides plenty of potential for a buyer and measures approximately 575 square feet. To the front, the high hedging provides privacy form Rookery Way and ample parking in from of the garages with the potential for further parking if required.
