About this property

  • 104 Folders Lane, also known as Summer Lodge, is one of a pair of handsome, Tudor-style modern family homes situated in south facing gardens at the eastern end of Folders Lane, a leafy sought-after residential road close to Ditchling Common. Built in 1994 and extended in 2001 to create an impressive principal bedroom suite, the house offers generously proportioned and versatile accommodation over two floors, with the addition of a large, partially converted attic space which is currently used as a playroom and has further potential for conversion, subject to the necessary consents.

    The floor plan gives a comprehensive overview of the full extent and layout of the property, which extends to nearly 3,300 square feet excluding the attic room. The majority of the ground floor accommodation lies off the welcoming entrance hall. Reception rooms include a large sitting room with an open fireplace and French doors opening to the first of the two conservatories which is used as a dining room, a formal dining room (currently used as a study) and a study. The kitchen and breakfast room is fitted with a range of hand painted cream Hatt units, display shelves and integrated appliances, and has ample space for a table; it has an adjoining utility room and French doors opening to a large, second conservatory currently used as a comfortable family room.

    There are six bedrooms on the first floor, including the generous dual aspect principal suite which has a good range of fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room with large walk in shower cubicle. The other bedrooms are served by two good-sized bathrooms, both with suites including baths and separate showers.

    Summer Lodge and its immediate neighbours are accessed from Folders Lane by a private driveway, well screened from the road by a bank of mature trees. A timber gate opens to the property's private parking area which offers ample space for a number of vehicles ahead of the double garage and adjoining car port. To the front of the property is an area of lawn dotted with young trees, bounded by hedging and post and rail fencing.

    The south facing rear garden is of particular note, being secluded, well enclosed and backing onto open fields. 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. In all about 0.37 of an acre.
