About this property

  • Guide price range £825,000 - £850,000

    8 Sherwood Drive is a stylish and well-presented detached family house, offering spacious, contemporary accommodation arranged over two floors and extending to over 1,560 square feet (excluding the double garage). Originally dating from the mid-1970s, over the past two years the property has been extended and beautifully redecorated, offering clean, contemporary lines, a neutral palette, Travertine stone flooring through part of the ground floor and stylish bathroom suites by Cuckfield Bathrooms. The floor plan gives an excellent overview of the layout, which is well-suited to family life. Of particular note is the newly-created, versatile ground floor bedroom suite which also has an entrance from the side of the house and forms an ideal annexe; alternatively the bedroom could be used as a cosy snug, or spacious home office.

    The front door opens to the entrance hall, from which stairs rise to the first floor and off which lies a cloakroom with WC. The dual-aspect sitting room has French doors opening to the garden, and features a painted stone open fireplace.

    The kitchen is attractively fitted with a range of matt slate grey cabinetry by Howdens, with woodblock worktops and a ceramic sink and drainer; there are spaces for various appliances including a range-style oven. The kitchen is open to the dining and family room, an extension to the house in 2023, with two roof lanterns and triple-pane sliding doors to the garden, filling the room with light. One end of the room is fitted with deep, full height cupboards, one with space for laundry appliances.

    The ground floor bedroom suite comprises an inner hall, with sliding doors to both a bedroom and a tiled wet room.

    On the first floor are four double bedrooms and a superbly appointed family bathroom, lying off a galleried landing. Bedroom one has a range of fitted wardrobes and benefits from an equally well-appointed en suite shower room. Bedrooms two and three have built in wardrobes; bedroom four is currently used as a study/guest bedroom.

    Outside, the property is approached via a brick paved driveway offering off street parking for three vehicles ahead of the attached double garage. There is gated access at both sides of the house to the rear garden, which is west facing, well-closed by fencing and hedging, and mainly laid to lawn with a paved terrace extending the width of the house.
