    About this property

    • 102 Folders Lane is a handsome modern family home situated in south facing gardens at the eastern end of Folders Lane, a leafy residential road close to Ditchling Common with views over adjoining fields to the rear. The house was built in 2018 as one of a pair of bespoke homes and offers generously proportioned and beautifully presented accommodation over two floors, with stylish interiors and wood flooring throughout the ground floor. It is ideal for family life, with a versatile layout giving a variety of options for how the reception space can be used.

      The floorplans give an excellent overview of the current layout: lying off the entrance hall is a formal sitting room, with a wood burning stove and a bay window to the front. On the other side of the hall is a cloakroom, a snug (which could be used as a study), and a utility room with access to the garage. To the rear is an impressive open plan kitchen/dining room, a wonderful light room with bi fold doors to the conservatory, which is currently used as a playroom, and to the rear terrace. The kitchen is beautifully equipped with a good range of contemporary grey wall hung and under counter units with a central island in complementary tones, all under pale worktops; integrated appliances include a double oven, an induction hob, fridge freezer and wine cooler. The dining area has plenty of space for a dining table.

      The upper level is fitted with air conditioning at the turn of the stairs. There are five bedrooms on the first floor, including a generous principal suite which has a good range of fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room with large walk in shower cubicle. The guest suite has an en suite shower room; the three other bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. All bathrooms have contemporary suites and fittings.

      No. 102 is accessed from Folders Lane by a private driveway, shared with the three neighbouring properties and well screened from the road by a bank of mature trees. A pair of electronically operated timber gates open to the property's private parking area which offers ample space for a number of vehicles ahead of the attached double garage. To the front of the property is an area of lawn dotted with hedging and fencing at the boundary.

      The south-facing rear garden is of particular note, being adjacent to open fields. The rear elevation of the house is spanned by a large paved terrace, offering plenty of space for tables and leisure equipment; at one end is a decked area with spacious seven-seater hot tub (2.4m x 2.4m) which is available by separate negotiation. Raised beds border the terrace, and beyond lies the lawn, edged by shrub and flower borders and a number of trees. A detached, wood-clad home office offers a stylish contemporary space for home-working.

      In all about 0.37 of an acre.
