    About this property

    • Brayfield is a detached family home, dating from 1923 and ideally located in Tyler's Green on the edge of the sought-after village of Cuckfield – almost equidistant between Cuckfield's historic High Street and its many village amenities, and Haywards Heath's mainline railway station.

      The house is typical of Turner's Arts & Crafts architectural style, externally characterised by brick elevations under a tiled roof, and internally with a number of exposed oak timbers, a solid oak staircase, original internal doors with thumb latches, wash rooms off many of the bedrooms, and both feature and working fireplaces. The property as a whole has much to recommend it: it has been in the same ownership for nearly 40 years and has clearly been a much-loved family home. It is unlisted, with a generous footprint, and offers excellent scope for updating and reconfiguring (subject to obtaining the necessary permissions).

      The floor plan gives an excellent overview of the full extent of the accommodation, which extends to 2,088 square feet. Points of note include the two formal reception rooms: a spacious dual-aspect sitting room with a high ceiling and handsome brick inglenook fireplace, and the oak panelled dining room which features a pretty delft tiled feature fireplace. Lying off the sitting room are a versatile suite of rooms which have potential to be converted into self-contained accommodation, currently a ground floor bedroom, study, dressing/wash rooms and an interconnecting bathroom.

      The kitchen has a walk-in larder and a door opening to the side of the house, where there is a boiler room and gardener's WC.

      There are three bedrooms on the first floor, all with fitted or built in storage cupboards and two with wash rooms, together with a family bathroom and separate WC.

      Brayfield's generous plot is of particular note, extending to about 1.28 acres in all. The house is approached from Tyler's Green via a gated driveway with central turning circle. To the east of the house is a detached tandem garage with attached store room and timber shed to the rear.

      Lying adjacent to the back of the house is a paved terrace accessed from the sitting room, with stone steps descending to the lawn. The lawn extends away from the house, very well enclosed by mature shrubs and trees, to a further expanse of garden bordered by handsome mature trees and dotted with young oak.
