    About this property

    • Possawood is a detached chalet-style home enjoying a delightful semi-rural location, and with potential to extend, under planning reference: WD/2021/2732/F, dated 21 January, 2022. The property lies off a small country lane, just 2.5 miles west of the market town of Heathfield, and just over a mile from the quaint village of Waldron.

      The current owners have recently undergone an extensive renovation programme to bring the property up to modern standards. It is now well presented throughout with a fresh neutral colour scheme and benefits from three ground floor bedrooms, a newly-fitted kitchen, two contemporary newly-fitted shower rooms, double glazing, a sitting room with a wood burning stove and opening out to the garden, a fourth top floor bedroom, a detached double garage and parking space for several vehicles.

      The planning permission is for a single storey rear extension, a two storey front porch extension, and a loft conversion to create a five-bedroom home, with a large kitchen/family room, separate utility, and a sizeable sitting room.

      The property is set within a generous plot of about 1.11 acres which stretches mostly to the rear, with many mature specimen trees. The current owners also enjoy access to Possingworth Park, a 77 acre private park bought by nearby residents in 1990, and now owned for the enjoyment of shareholders/residents who pay approximately £20.00 per annum insurance and maintenance. A £200.00 transfer fee is payable to transfer the shares to the new owners.

    I particularly like Possawoods tranquil location and the opportunity to create a substantial family home on this highly regarded lane!
