About this property

  • Set in beautifully landscaped gardens in a semi-rural position on the edge of the market town of Uckfield, Holly House is an attractive modern home built in the early 2000s. The house offers well presented, spacious and versatile accommodation extending to nearly 2,900 square feet; the layout on the ground floor being particularly well thought-out with high ceilings and an excellent flow between the main living spaces, ideal for family living and entertaining alike. The house offers excellent scope for secondary accommodation or home working: the large detached triple garage has utilities connected and good potential for full or partial conversion (subject to the necessary consents).

    The floor plans give a comprehensive overview of the full extent of the house. There are two formal reception rooms lying off the spacious and welcoming entrance hall, both with French doors opening to the garden: an elegant triple-aspect sitting room featuring a stone fireplace with inset Stovax woodburner, and a dining room with a large bay window giving views of the garden.

    The kitchen and breakfast room overlooks the garden and is fitted with a range of bespoke oak units and display cupboards, with black granite worktops, appliances including an electric Rangemaster oven, and ample space for a breakfast table. Lying off the kitchen is the family room with a fully functioning fireplace, and a useful utility room; a study and cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    There are five generously-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, all with fitted or built in storage. The principal bedroom is a lovely dual-aspect room with walk-in dressing room and en suite bathroom; bedroom two would make a comfortable guest bedroom, a spacious light filled room benefitting from a wide bay and views of the garden together with an en suite shower room. The remaining three bedrooms are served by a large family bathroom.

    Holly House is accessed from London Road via a sweeping gravelled driveway and parking area ahead of the detached triple garage and house. To the front of the house is an area of lawn, well-screened from London Road by a wall, high hedging and mature trees.

    The wonderful gardens and grounds are of particular note, beautifully landscaped by the current owners with a large stone terrace adjacent to the house, well-stocked, colourful flower and shrub beds, a pretty ornamental pond and woodchip pathways winding through the planting. Beyond the formal garden and a row of mature lime trees is a further expanse of lawn, and beyond here a deer-fenced wildflower meadow with mown pathways and a timber stable block in the far north eastern corner.

    Meadow, about 0.8 of an acre; in all, about 2.4 acres.

Holly House is quite simply a super family home, with lots of space and room to grow too. I love the beautiful garden - it feels like a real haven, yet is only moments from the bustling market town of Uckfield.
