A fine detached modern family house set in a private estate.
11 Lower Drive is a beautifully presented detached home, built by Charles Church in 2010 in classic Sussex style with tile-hung and brick elevations. It offers stylish and spacious accommodation extending to 3,715 square feet, with high ceilings, double glazing and partial underfloor heating.
The property has a pleasing layout which is well-suited to family life. The entrance hall sets the scene with an impressive central split staircase in light oak, and glazed double doors to the drawing room which has a feature fireplace and French doors to the terrace. The dining room and sitting room/study room have bay windows to the front.
The open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room is an excellent space for day to day life, with space for table and chairs, and a seating area with TV point and French doors opening to the sandstone terrace. The fitted kitchen has granite surfaces, with a good range of wall-hung and under-counter units, and integrated AEG appliances including a five burner gas hob, double oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer. There is a stainless steel sink with a waste disposal unit, and a utility room lying off the kitchen with space for a washing machine and plenty of storage. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.
From the hall, the staircase rises and separates, leading up to a galleried landing, which opens to a study space with views to the front.
The master bedroom suite has French doors opening to a balcony, with views over the rear garden. Two large wardrobes provide built-in storage, and there is an en suite bathroom with separate shower. There are four further bedrooms (two en suite), one with a Juliet balcony. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.
The property sits in a generous plot which extends to just under half an acre. It is approached via a brick paved driveway, opening out to provide off-street parking ahead of the detached triple bay garage, which has one electronically operated and two manual doors.
The rear garden has been landscaped and is fully enclosed by panelled fencing and hedging, with gated access at either side of the house. Adjoining the house is a sandstone terrace with space for table and chairs. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn, with established borders planted with topiaried shrubs. There is a summerhouse and a timber storage shed.
All light fittings and soft furnishings are available by separate negotiation.

A superb home with plenty of space for the family, I particularly like its location in the heart of Maresfield Park.Rohan Vines
