About this property

  • Holly Rise is an excellent family home located in the semi-rural village of North Chailey, yet only five miles from the commuter town of Haywards Heath. Built in 1990, the house has attractive wisteria-clad, part tile-hung brick elevations and is elevated in its plot, affording some lovely far reaching views over its garden to Red House Common beyond.

    The house is stylishly presented throughout, arranged over three floors and extends to 1,966 square feet, the full extent and layout of which can be seen on the floor plan. The front door opens from an overhung porch canopy to a split level entrance hall, off which lies a cloakroom with WC. Double doors open to an elegant dual aspect sitting room featuring a granite fireplace with slate hearth; across the hall is a playroom. Steps descend to the open-plan kitchen and dining room, a super room for day-to-day family life with French doors opening to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of light grey, shaker-style units with granite worktops and a Neff oven and hob, it is partially divided from the dining area by a breakfast bar with glass pendant lighting over and adjoins a good-sized utility room with space for laundry appliances.

    There are four bedrooms on the first floor, lying off a spacious galleried landing. Bedroom two is currently used as the main bedroom and has an attractive square bay to the front, built in wardrobes and an en suite shower room; the other three bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. The second floor comprises a generous additional bedroom suite, with shower room and space for a desk, which would make a wonderful guest suite or alternative principal bedroom.

    Set back from Haywards Heath Road behind a low brick wall, Holly Rise is accessed via a wooden five bar gate which opens to a parking area in front of the house, offering ample space for several cars.

    There is gated access to the side of the house to the fence-enclosed rear garden, which is of particular note: terraced over three levels to enhance the lovely outlook to Chailey Common to north. A large stone patio lies adjacent to the rear of the house, with steps descending to another terrace, recently re-landscaped to create a part-gravelled, part-decked seating area. The lower level is laid to lawn, edged by flower borders and shrubs offering interest and colour during the spring and summer months.
