About this property

  • 1 Badger Drive is a well-presented detached modern house, which was built in the 1970s and has been in the same family for almost 50 years; it offers light and bright accommodation arranged over two floors, and is ideally positioned for reaching local amenities, being within catchment for Harlands Primary School and Warden Park Secondary Academy, and with Haywards Heath station approximately 15 minutes' walking distance. The property offers excellent potential for extension and reconfiguration, subject to obtaining the necessary consents and permissions.

    The sitting room and dining room are separated by internal double doors; in addition, there is a study and a conservatory, and a good-sized fitted kitchen. A shower room completes the ground floor. On the first floor are four bedrooms, three with fitted wardrobes, and a family bathroom with a bath and separate shower cubicle.

    The house sits back from the road, with a driveway offering parking. There is an attached single garage, which provides useful storage and has a courtesy door to the rear garden. The front garden is laid to lawn, with hydrangea and shrub-beds; there is a gate giving side access to the fully enclosed rear garden.

    A paved terrace spans the rear elevation, offering space for table and chairs and creating a wonderful spot to enjoy the delightful and spacious south facing garden. Steps lead up the rear lawn, which is bordered by well-stocked, established beds filled with a variety of bulbs, shrubs and ornamental trees; there is a further paved terrace, sheltered by a pergola midway. To the rear of the garden is a storage shed.

This is a really good family house, it's ideally positioned for schools and the station and the no-through road is an added bonus.
