A charming, elegant, period cottage set in Orchard Lane, only a short walk away from Hassocks high street and train station. This beautiful semi-detached home really is a one off with an impressive and welcoming feeling, along with lovely views from the upstairs windows.
As you enter this cosy cottage, to the left is the snug/lounge which has the feeling of warmth and relaxing vibe, following on is the large kitchen which has enough space for a good size dining table and plenty of storage space. To the right of the kitchen is a scullery/utility room, with doors leading out the garden. The garden is a blank canvas ready for someone to landscape or extend out onto(STNC). Back into the kitchen is a door to the left, which leads you down into the cellar, ideal for any storage use. A pretty walled courtyard is also accessible from the kitchen, which faces south so this makes it the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy the sun while not being overlooked.
As we make our back into the entrance hall to the right is the peaceful lounge, complete with a beautiful open fireplace. This room is currently being used as a bedroom, so can easily be changed back into either a formal lounge, snug, office or dining room. As we reach the top of the stairs, you are met with a spacious landing, which has two bedrooms leading off to the left and right. The bedroom to the left is a very good size double bedroom with built in wardrobe space. The master bedroom which is to the right is a fantastic size and again has large built in storage space complete with an excellent en-suite shower room. What is fantastic about these first two bedrooms is the views you get from the windows, and the light and airy feeling when walking in the rooms.
The family bathroom has a contemporary fitted suite, with plenty of space and fitted cupboards. The bathroom also has potential for a fitted shower with the plumbing ready to go for anyone wanting both a shower and a bath. The next bedroom is again a very good size. Indeed each room in the cottage is very well proportioned and the layout works very well.
Across the road is Adastra Park. This is an ideal area for anyone with children, pets or those who just want to enjoy the great outdoors, right on your own doorstep.
The location has great amenities; for commuters, the Hassocks railway station is just a short walk away, as are the Hassocks infant school and the outstanding Downlands community school. Recreational pursuits are also close at hand, by way of the Hassocks Golf Club & The Weald Lawn Tennis Club. The market town of Burgess Hill is around two miles to the north and to the south the cosmopolitan arts, business and entertainment centre that is Brighton, at just eight miles away.
This great location is also just a short drive from the A23 at Albourne, providing easy access to the M23/Gatwick Airport, the M25 and in turn to the complete motorway network.
The mainline railway station has regular services to London (Victoria & London Bridge both circa 57 minutes) and the south coast (Brighton circa 11 minutes).Reference: 235728
