Substantial and beautifully presented home in the centre of the village.
19 Manor Drive, also known as The Limes', is an attractive detached house, ideally situated in a sought-after private road only moments from the centre of Cuckfield village. During the course of our clients' ownership, the house has been thoughtfully extended and improved, resulting in an impressive yet comfortable family home, superbly presented throughout with stylish décor and modern fittings including partial underfloor heating, modern bathroom suites, some LED dimmable lighting, and plantation shutters to a number of windows. The floorplans give an excellent overview of the layout of the accommodation, which is arranged over two floors and extends to over 3,400 square feet including the integrated double garage.
There are three spacious formal reception rooms on the ground floor, all with bi-fold doors opening to the south facing rear terrace. The elegant dual-aspect sitting room features an inset cassette wood burner and granite hearth, and double doors open to the family room a versatile space which could be used as a cinema room or gym, and even has the potential to be converted into a self-contained annexe, either with or without the first floor bedrooms over (subject to the necessary consents).
The kitchen is fitted with a good range of shaker-style cabinets and display cupboards, with a central island, black granite worktops, a number of integrated Bosch appliances, feature LED lighting and underfloor heating; the adjoining breakfast room is a lovely space flooded by light by way of a large roof lantern and French doors opening to the terrace; it has ample space for a large breakfast table and also has underfloor heating. A study, cloakroom and a useful utility/boot room serving the kitchen, complete the ground floor.
The impressive principal bedroom suite is on the first floor, comprising a bedroom with a wall of fitted wardrobes, a dressing room with hanging rail, and an en suite shower room with underfloor heating and contemporary fittings including a large shower and twin basins. There are four further bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms, a dressing room and a family bathroom situated on the first floor; bedroom five also benefits from French doors opening to a private roof top balcony, a lovely spot for morning coffee.
The Limes is approached via a bonded gravel drive, providing ample off street parking ahead of the house and leading to the integrated double garage; to the front of the house is an expanse of lawn.
The mature south facing garden is of particular note, having been attractively landscaped to offer a lovely space ideal for relaxed al fresco dining and entertaining alike. A generous raised stone terrace spans the rear of the house, from which steps descend to the lawn, which is dotted with flower and shrub beds and is well-enclosed by fencing and mature laurel giving a good degree of privacy. In all, about 0.26 of an acre.

I think this is a fantastic family house, it just ticks so many boxes - great central village location on a no-through road, well-presented and plenty of space for the whole family.Rohan Vines
