About this property

  • Understood to date from the 1950s, 15 Portsmouth Lane (also known as ‘Wishfield') is a spacious detached house situated in a sought-after location on the edge of Lindfield, yet only minutes from Haywards Heath's mainline railway station. This good family home offers well-proportioned accommodation extending to nearly 2,000 square feet, whilst also having plenty of scope for a new buyer to update and further improve.

    The layout and full extent of the house can be seen on the floor plans. There are two good-sized reception rooms, one with a working fireplace; of particular note is the large kitchen, dining and family room – a versatile space, ideal for everyday family life and entertaining alike. There are four bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor; the dual-aspect principal bedroom benefitting from a private balcony overlooking the garden and an en suite bathroom with suite including a roll top bath and separate shower cubicle.

    Wishfield sits in an elevated position, surrounded by mature and well enclosed gardens giving a good degree of privacy. A short driveway from Portsmouth Lane opens to a large parking area ahead of the house, to the south of which is a raised area of lawn; the front of the house is well screened from the road by fencing and mature evergreens. A paved terrace spans the rear of the house, with stone steps rising to an expanse of lawn. To the northern side of the lawn is a further area of terrace, covered by a large vine-clad pergola, an excellent space for barbequing and al fresco dining.
