About this property

  • 59 Folders Lane, also known as Little Acre, is a handsome family home situated in beautiful landscaped gardens towards the eastern end of Folders Lane, a leafy sought-after residential road close to Ditchling Common. Originally built as bungalow, the property was acquired by the current owners in 2013 and substantially extended and reconfigured to create generously proportioned and superbly presented accommodation arranged over two floors.

    The floor plan gives a comprehensive overview of the full extent and layout of the property, which extends to approximately 3,549 sq ft excluding the attached garage.

    The majority of the ground floor accommodation lies off the welcoming entrance hall, and the principal reception space is the superb open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, an impressive L shaped room, divided into clear zones and offering plenty of space for day to day family life. The kitchen is well-equipped with a good range of fitted units and appliances including Bosch ovens, an induction hob, a dishwasher and a wine cooler, and is served by a sperate utility room with side access.

    Further reception rooms include a dual aspect family room with a gas fireplace and a smaller office, which could be used as a playroom, with access to the rear garden; the rear hall gives access to a ground floor bedroom with an en suite shower room, a study and to the garage. There is a cloakroom lying off the entrance hall, which completes the ground floor.

    The stylish turned oak staircase rises to the galleried landing, which has electronically controlled Velux windows ensuring light floods through the property. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, including the generous dual aspect principal suite which has dressing room completed with a good range of fitted wardrobes and storage, and an en suite bathroom with large walk in shower cubicle. Bedroom two has an en suite shower room. Bedrooms four and five are served by a spacious family bathroom with dual basins and walk-in shower.

    Little Acre sits almost centrally within its generous plot, which extends to just under half an acre and is well screened from the road by mature trees. An electronically controlled timber gate opens to the driveway, which offers ample space for a number of vehicles ahead of the attached double garage and the barn. The barn can house a large motorhome and provides excellent storage.

    To the front of the property is a terrace with space for table and chairs; the front garden is laid to lawn.

    The rear garden is of particular note, being well enclosed by coniferous hedging and beautifully landscaped. An expanse of level lawn extends out from a large paved terrace lying adjacent to the rear of the house, edged by shrub and flower borders and a number of trees; there is a gazebo with space for loungers.

    In all about 0.44 of an acre.

This is a really generous property - I love the open feel of the main living area and the flexibility offered by the ground floor layout.
