About this property

  • Nuthatch is a delightful detached family house, dating from the 1980s with later additions; it has classic Sussex brick and partially tile hung elevations under a tiled roof, and is set in a tranquil position within landscaped, fully enclosed gardens, in the heart of Maresfield Park.

    The property is beautifully presented, offering light, well-proportioned accommodation, with oak and frosted glass doors, tiled floors throughout the ground floor and is decorated in a soft neutral palette which is suited to modern tastes.

    The floorplans give an excellent overview of the full extent and layout; Nuthatch has been cleverly and thoughtfully extended to create a comfortable and deceptively spacious home with versatile living space.

    The dual aspect sitting room has a woodburning stove, and bi-fold doors to the northwest facing rear patio; the dining room is also dual aspect and has bi-fold doors to the south east patio, with space for a sofa in addition to a table. To the rear lies a good-sized room with access to the rear garden and a shower; this is currently used as a ground floor bedroom but could be used as further reception space or a study.

    The split-level kitchen/breakfast/family room is well-equipped with a good range of wall hung and under counter cupboards, stone surfaces, an induction hob and extractor, NEFF ovens, stainless steel SMEG double sink and a breakfast bar with cupboards under. Steps lead down to the breakfast area which has space for a table and chairs, or could accommodate a sofa to create a family/playroom. The kitchen is complemented by a utility room, lying off the hallway, and a cloakroom completes the ground floor.

    On the first floor, the main bedroom has a view over the front garden, excellent built-in wardrobes and an en suite with walk-in shower. There are three further bedrooms, one en suite and one currently used as an dressing room, and a bathroom.

    Nuthatch is approached via a five bar gate which opens to the gravelled driveway and parking area ahead of the double open bay timber framed car port, which has power connected.

    The house sits almost centrally within its generous mature gardens, which extend to over two thirds of an acre and have been beautifully landscaped into distinct, stepped areas, with features of note including well-stocked rose beds, pretty paths with arches, a lavender rockery created from the natural rock formations, a kitchen garden, cottage style borders and mature ornamental and fruit trees. The front terrace is a particular feature, providing an excellent space to entertaining al fresco.

    The garden is fully enclosed to the sides and rear by panelled fencing with hedging planted, and side gates ensure the rear garden is secure.

    Agent's Note
    Maresfield Park is a private estate and each household contributes towards the upkeep of the roads.

This is a fantastic "turn-key" family home - it really is superbly presented.
