Spacious detached house with heated outdoor pool in a sought-after private estate.
Pinedrive is a substantial detached house, with partially tile-hung and brick elevations, situated on a no-through close within the heart of Maresfield Park, a peaceful private estate on the edge of Ashdown Forest.
The property dates from the 1960s, and was the subject of improvements in 2016, including the conversion of the previous garage to further accommodation and the addition of a detached double garage.
The result is a generous family house, with excellent reception space including a superb triple-aspect sitting room with a working fireplace fitted with graceful marble mantelpiece. There are bi-fold doors opening to the conservatory, and a study area to the side, which all combine to create a wonderful space for entertaining; additional reception space is offered by the family room, a tranquil space which adjoins the open plan kitchen/dining room, which is about 30ft in length.
The dining area has a roof lantern, ensuring plenty of natural light, and French doors to the side terrace. The kitchen has a central island, and an Aga; it is served by a utility room, which leads through to the office. Lying off the entrance hall, which offers plenty of built in storage, is a cloakroom.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor, two have en suite shower rooms and all have fitted cupboards or wardrobes. A family bathroom, complete with a free standing roll top, claw foot bath and separate shower cubicle complete the accommodation.
Pinedrive is approached via a carriage driveway, leading around the front lawn which is graced by a central water feature and flanked by mature coniferous hedging. The driveway is block paved, and offers plenty of parking of ahead of the house and the detached double garage, which has power connected and electronically operated up and over doors.
To the side of the house, a wrought iron gate opens to the side terrace, which in turn leads to the expansive terrace which spans the rear elevation and offers plenty of space for table and chairs. The remainder of the garden is mainly laid to lawn, sloping gently up past the timber framed detached home office, which is fully connected with power, heating and telecoms. At the top of the garden is the outdoor heated swimming pool, which has a paved surround offering space for loungers and is well-sheltered by the established mature hedging which forms the garden's boundary.
The gardens extend in all to about 0.6 of an acre.
Maresfield Park is a private estate and each household contributes towards the upkeep of the roads.
