Detached Turner house in beautiful mature gardens, on the edge of Lindfield.
Ideally situated on the western edge of Lindfield, only 0.7 of a mile from Haywards Heath's mainline station, Sun Ridge is a very attractive family home believed to date from 1926. The house is typical of Turner's Arts & Crafts architectural style, externally characterised by brick elevations with red brick detailing, original leaded light casement windows with feature stained glass panes, and Turner's signature curled gutter brackets. During our clients' 22-year ownership the house has been the subject of extension and improvement, whilst retaining much of its 1920s character including exposed oak timbers, a solid oak staircase, original internal doors and both feature and working fireplaces.
The front door opens to an entrance hall, featuring an elegant full height leaded light bay overlooking the front garden. There are two reception rooms lying off the hall: a study (which could be a dining room or snug), and a light and bright triple aspect sitting room, with crittal-style French doors opening to the garden and an open fireplace set with a Chesneys woodburning stove.
The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of modern gloss units and display cupboards, with granite worktops, a Belling range oven and various integrated appliances; beyond the kitchen is a spacious utility room with glazed roof and space for laundry appliances, and a ground floor wet room. The kitchen is open to the generous west-facing conservatory, a versatile room with space for both a dining table and sofas, and French doors opening to the garden.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor, all dual aspect and with fitted or built in storage. Bedrooms one and two have en suite shower rooms; bedrooms three and four share a family bathroom with modern white suite, and a separate WC. A hatch and fixed ladder allows access to a boarded loft room with Velux window.
Sun Ridge's lovely gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the house, private and mature, and extending to just over a quarter of an acre. The house is set back from Summerhill Lane down a gravel driveway leading to a parking area ahead of the house; there is an expanse of lawn, well screened to the boundaries by high hedging.
The rear garden is well established and equally well enclosed, edged by hedging and mature trees, and dotted with young trees and beds, and with an Indian sandstone terrace next to the house.

This is a great family house in an excellent location, and I really like this style of architecture. It's rare to find the original windows in situ.Oliver MackminProperty agent
