Rose Cottage Lane, Staplefield

Guide Price £685,000

Occupying a quiet semi rural position, a beautiful cottage with plenty of character, extended to provide excellent entertaining space and four bedrooms. Good size rear garden and plenty of off road parking to the front

DESCRIPTION This is a superb family home that will excite plenty of buyers that are looking for that perfect semi-rural position and yet be in easy access to Cuckfield and Haywards Heath. Extended by the present owners with planning approved for further enhancement, there are so many key features that will appeal. We particularly love the flow of the ground floor. The kitchen extension is now a perfect place to entertain in – you’ll find plenty of prep work space and integrated appliances and there is space for a American style fridge and underfloor heating. The high gloss soft closing cupboards and drawers complement the work tops and the flow of the kitchen. The flexibility of this area means that a buyer can either use the main dining area or the rear of the kitchen for a table, with both areas also working well as a playroom. The sitting room is a really good size and the wood burner provides that ideal character you’d associate with a country cottage. Importantly, sliding doors means that this room can either enhance the flow of the ground floor, or be closed off completely. Wood flooring in the entrance hall, sitting room and dining area not only adds to the charm, but is easy to maintain. Elsewhere on the ground floor there is a cloakroom and a useful boot room which provides side access to the garden.

On the first floor are three bedrooms, all of which are a really good size and the family bathroom. The southerly views from bedrooms one and three to the front are excellent and are a feature of this home. Bedroom one benefits from plenty of built in wardrobe space whilst bedroom three also has a built in storage cupboard. Bedroom two overlooks the rear garden and provides built in storage. The family bathroom has been updated and benefits from a walk in shower as well as a bath, wc, hand basin and underfloor heating. Stairs then rise to bedroom four which is still a double bedroom and benefits from plenty of eaves storage space. This room also works really well in its current use as an office.

We believe the garden is a major selling point of this home. Sliding doors from the kitchen diner lead you to the decking. The garden is approximately 80 foot in length with plenty of mature flower and shrub areas, along with space for a garden shed, a treehouse, an area for chickens and a number of fruit trees. Our clients have built a superb outdoor kitchen, ideal for those that want to entertain a lot outside over the summer months You’ll find a sink, plenty of works surface and storage area and space for a BBQ and pizza oven. This area perfectly adds to the charm and character of the cottage. To the front, the drive has been brick paved to provide space for four cars and there is easy parking on Rose Cottage Lane. The planning permission granted would allow a buyer to square off the extension at the rear and create an even bigger family and entertaining area. For more information, please contact us.

LOCATION For many buyers, the quiet semi rural position of Rose Cottage Lane will be a key feature. Just around the corner is the village green and the perfect spot to watch cricket at the weekends. There are two pubs, The Victory Inn and The Jolly Tanners, both of which are highly regarded and are popular within Mid-Sussex. There is a a village hall, annual fete and the famous London to Brighton car rally passes through the village. St Marks C of E is the local primary school which is rated as Good and is a short walk around the corner, whilst there is a bus that provides transport to Cuckfield for Warden Park Secondary school (also rated as Good.) A bus service also connects Haywards Heath and Crawley from Staplefield. There are plenty of countryside walks around the village that take you further afield, whilst Nymans National Trust can be found less than two miles to the north. A short drive takes you to the larger village of Cuckfield which boasts a further range of village facilities and then into Haywards Heath. For those that might want to commute, there are two viable options. Haywards Heath station is 5.5 miles to the south east, whilst Balcombe station is just over 4 miles to the north. Both are on the London to Brighton line where the service into the city is very good – from Haywards Heath journey times are from 45 minutes. To access the A23 which connect to the M23 and M25, head north towards Handcross.
