A rare opportunity to acquire a property with land in this very popular and accessible location on the outskirts of Cuckfield.
The property is one half of a pair of former farm cottages once owned by Cuckfield Park and believed to date from around 1900 with a later extension to the side.
The property has been utilised in the past as a smallholding for the keeping of sheep and goats, and might well suit private equestrian use. There is an excellent range of outbuildings set around a concrete yard to the rear, which might well suit stabling or perhaps conversion to further ancillary accommodation subject to the necessary planning permissions being obtained.
The residence itself, in the agent’s opinion, offers comfortable accommodation. It is fair to say that it would benefit from some updating. Purchasers should be aware that there is a section of flying freehold to the second floor loft area, which is reciprocal with the neighbouring property.
The property is situated on the outskirts of Cuckfield which is a thriving local village with shops, a public house, petrol station café etc. More extensive facilities are offered by Haywards Heath which has several supermarkets and a railway station. The property is in an extremely accessible location and viewing is highly recommended.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
