  • Set In Approx. 1.8 Acres 
  • A Spacious Semi-Detached Four Bedroom House
  • Excellent Range of Brick Outbuildings with Yard
  • Gardens, Grounds and Adjoining Paddock with Superb Views

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.
